Chris “Mad Dog” Russo felt that Harden’s thirst for money will not do justice for his legacy. “We have to be fair to this too, with Harden, he shouldn’t be worried about money. They should be worried about the scenario 20 years from now.

“Nobody will remember how much money he made. How about winning a championship? Too many athletes say, ‘Okay, let me get mine and let them worry about what they can put up with.’ LeBron, he wants $97 million or whatever he’s eligible for? How about taking less, so the Lakers can add components to the team. Because at the end of the day it’s about winning championships. That’s all its about. That and legacy.”
