All-Star James Harden has assured the Houston Rockets’ fans of better performance in the coming season. Harden signed a 4-year, $118 million contract extension with the Rockets recently.

Harden is a former team-mate of Kevin Durant. They featured together for the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Rockets’ All-star is not a  believer of the theory that the Golden State Warriors have become a “dream team” with Kevin Durant joining Stephen Curry in their roster.

The bearded superstar, took a swipe at his rival team in a letter he wrote to the Rockets’ fans.

“We are not a ‘super-team’ but just a group of guys that want to work hard to be the very best and our work begins immediately,” Harden, a former teammate of Durant’s on the Thunder, wrote.

Houston lost Dwight Howard in free agency, but added Ryan Anderson, Eric Gordon and Nene.

“I can assure you our Team will work hard together, grow together, build together, compete together, and pursue our ultimate goal — another Championship for H-Town — together!”Harden also wrote, according to the Washington Post.

The Rockets struggled last season and recorded a 41-41 win record. The West Conference finalists of the 2014-15 season bowed out to the Warriors cheaply in the first round of the playoffs in 15-16 season.

Houston has rebuilt around Harden to bounce back this season.
