Added Rivers, “He leads more by example. He’s not a rah-rah guy. … We go as James goes. That’s no secret. Obviously, he’s playing the best basketball in the league and that’s not even a debate. I don’t even know how the MVP thing is a debate anymore after what the fuck he’s been doing. We’re gonna go as he goes, ultimately. I think he doesn’t really have to lead in terms of vocal. You leave that to other guys. He does everything else.”
“I’m surprised that people don’t like watching him play,” said Rivers, who signed with the Rockets early in Harden’s streak of 30-plus-point performances that stands at 28 straight games entering Saturday’s ABC primetime matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder. “We live in a day and age where everybody likes one-on-one moves, crossovers — I mean, you would think people would love watching him.”

Does it surprise him? Not at this point in his career, no. But at the ripe age of 26, Rivers doesn’t want to be a villain anymore. “I think people probably think I’m like a spoiled brat,” Rivers says as he fidgets with his gold necklace, shaking his head hours before the Houston Rockets would play the New York Knicks in Madison Square Garden. “Just cause I come from money and I play with confidence, people take that as arrogance. I think before people know me, they think I’m kind of like a jerk or some brat.”
