The greatest Houston Rockets player of this century will return to the Toyota Center on Monday night.
Houston will host James Harden and the Philadelphia 76ers in the reunion matchup, marking Harden's fourth game against the Rockets since a trade to Brooklyn in January 2021. Harden's Houston tenure certainly ended in ugly fashion, though despite a tough breakup, it's still worth appreciating Harden's dominance in a Houston uniform. Few players in league history have ever been as dominant offensively as Harden during his time with the Rockets. It's a question if a Houston player will ever reach those heights again.
