The current NBA offseason has been less than ideal. While Bradley Beal has made the move to join the Phoenix Suns, there are other top players on different teams who are eager to leave. Two notable names are Damian Lillard and James Harden, both of whom have expressed their desire to be traded from their current teams. So far, no action has been taken by either franchise. However, there is a possibility that one of these superstars may see some positive developments.
Both James Harden and Damian Lillard have been extremely vocal about their demands this offseason, only to be disappointed so far. So, this seven-time NBA champion’s advice to the $ 265,000,000-rich Dame and Harden may just work wonders for the two.
A former NBA star gives guidance to James Harden and Damian Lillard.
Damian Lillard and James Harden are both exceptional players who excel at what they do. Though the two have had different histories in the league, both Dame and Harden have amassed a total of combined $265,000,000 in net worth.
However, both players have been facing difficulties in achieving their offseason goals. Both James Harden and Damian Lillard have expressed a desire to leave their current teams, but there has been little progress in making this happen.
A timeline has been set by a Suns insider for a potential Damian Lillard trade that could involve Deandre Ayton joining the team within 24 hours.
However, seven-time NBA champion Robert Horry may have a potential solution to address their issues. During an episode of his podcast, “Big Shot Bob Pod with Robert Horry,” the basketball legend was questioned about his thoughts on Lillard and Harden staying with their respective teams.
At that moment, Horry suggested, “Simply play your way out of the situation. If you perform well and demonstrate your success this season, you will have teams competing to have you on their team.”
“Allow your performance to speak for itself. Your performance has earned you a significant amount of money, making it challenging to negotiate. Therefore, let your play do the talking. That is all you need to do.”
Can Harden and Lillard find success?
Robert Horry emphasized that if the two players perform at a high level, their desires can be achieved. This applies to Harden, who has not been as productive in recent years.
However, despite his team’s lackluster performance, Lillard has consistently been exceptional. Every time he takes the court, Damian Lillard gives his all. So, what does Lillard need to do in order for his request to be acknowledged?
