Combining for 15 All-Star appearances, 2 MVPs, and 4 scoring titles, Russell Westbrook and James Harden will meet again as teammates for the first time since 2012.

Despite so much having changed for the stars, there is a sense of great optimism about their reunion, especially from the players themselves. In a tweet by Rockets beat writer Alykhan Bijani‏, he records what Harden had to say about Westbrook coming to join him in Houston.

“When I left OKC I was sad. Then Houston made a home for me. Rockets is my home. And now an opportunity came available where Russ wasn’t happy. Now we’re back. It’s going to be a lot of fun this year, I guarantee you that.”

Both players have been subject to near overwhelming criticism by the media. Together, that is unlikely to change. In fact, many are predicting failure ahead for the Rockets, having two players who need the ball in their hands and play rather inefficiently on the offensive end.

Regardless of what anyone thinks, however, this is sure to be one wild and entertaining ride for Houston and the rest of the league, for that matter.
