A big smile peeked out from behind James Harden’s famously bushy beard as the Rockets superstar was asked how it felt to have signed the richest contract in NBA history. “Sounds good,” Harden said during a Saturday news conference to announce the four-year maximum contract extension that means he will make $228 million over the next six seasons. “But honestly, the only thing at this point of my career is winning, to get a championship.

Harden said the contract symbolizes a lifetime commitment to the Rockets, the franchise that traded for him in 2012 and has built around him since then. “I know where home is,” said Harden, an All-Star all five of his seasons in Houston. “I know where I want to be. I know where I want to retire ultimately and where I want to win a championship. Everything is going to happen here in Houston, and that’s the reason I’m here forever.”
