How James Harden's labeling of Daryl Morey as a 'liar' could be used as leverage

When video of James Harden calling Daryl Morey a liar made its way from China to every smartphone in the world early Monday morning, a few questions arose.

"Daryl Morey is a liar," James Harden said on his China trip. "I will never be a part of an organization that he is a part of." Let me say it again. 

Daryl Morey is a liar, and I will never be a part of an organization that he is a part of."That's where the most of the drama appears

to be in this clash between the 76ers' starting point guard and the team's president of basketball operations, who have been linked as tightly as any player and

executive in the NBA for more than a decade. What exactly is Harden accusing Morey of lying him about, and what does he want to gain by openly and directly calling it out?

It's hardly surprising that Harden would mix things up after Morey reportedly concluded trade talks this weekend to send him away

preferably to the Los Angeles Clippers, Harden's one-and-only preferred destination when he sought a trade more than six weeks ago. 

The latest non-development in a story typified by repeated stagnation appears to have irritated the 10-time All-Star and former NBA Most Valuable Player.
