Stephen Jackson expressed his disappointment for James Harden’s decision to skip the training camp of the Houston Rockets.

Jackson did not like the fact that Harden attended the party of Lil Baby in Las Vegas instead of joining the Rockets’ training camp.

“The Rockets finally get a young Black coach, a young Black coach gets an opportunity, and you don’t want to show up to camp. You don’t want to play for him. How’s that look?

And you wonder why every time a Black coach gets a job, they put him in a bulls–t situation. Look at what you’re doing,” Jackson said, via Matt Young of the Houston Chronicle

Harden has requested a trade from Houston, yet the Rockets don’t seem willing to let him go.
