On the FOX Sports show Undisputed, hosts Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe discussed James Harden receiving the biggest contract in the history of the NBA. Bayless believes this is a move that will ultimately backfire on the Rockets, and the addition of Chris Paul is actually a demotion for Harden, who will now be a wing player and no longer the distributor of the offense. In fact, Bayless believes that James will go off on management by January, and the experiment will fail.

Sharpe is a little more hopeful, and thinks that the Rockets are doing everything they can to win. Houston has shown Harden that they will make blockbuster deals, and Sharpe thinks Harden is a perfect number two in the offense. If Harden doesn’t have to play point, he will have more energy at the end of games. Check out the full segment and see where you come out on it.
