Donatas Motiejunas: James Harden and Dwight Howard don't eat with rest of Rockets team

The Houston Rockets are a model of team chemistry on and off the court. Just kidding, the Rockets are a complete unholy mess of clashing egos and guys who don’t want anything to do with one another.

Actually, that second statement isn’t entirely accurate either. It isn’t the whole team that’s a bunch of prima donnas, it’s just Dwight Howard and James Harden. Much has been revealed about the dysfunctional inner-workings of the 2013-2014 Rockets in recent weeks (remember the Chandler Parsons flap?) and now we have even more info from Rockets scrub Donatas Motiejunas.

In an interview with radio station ZIP FM, Motiejunas spilled some details about the team’s eating arrangements on the road. It’s pretty simple: Everyone eats together except Harden and Howard, who always go off by themselves:

Because nothing builds esprit de corps like your two biggest stars acting like they are too good to dine with the rest of the team.

It would be one thing if Harden and Howard were going off to eat someplace fancy but Motiejunas says they usually have fast food. So not only are they jerks who hate their own teammates, they also don’t take care of their bodies.

Great show down there in Houston. That will all end well.
