Arguably the most exciting trade of the offseason was the straight swap that saw Chris Paul join the Oklahoma City Thunder and Russell Westbrook reuniting with James Harden in Houston. Westbrook and Harden haven’t played together since 2012 where they made it to the NBA Finals with the Thunder.
When the two played together in Oklahoma, James Harden was the sixth man while Russell Westbrook took the point guard position in the starting lineup. Harden has improved so much that he won an MVP Award in 2018 and was runner up for the award this season. Many are wondering how the two will go working together again and who will be the one to take charge on the offensive end as both stars are two of the most dominant players in the league with the ball in their hand.
A hilarious video shared on Twitter by Black Tray shows what it might be like when the Rockets have an opportunity for a buzzer-beater to win the game. The video shows both Harden and Westbrook fighting over who takes the last shot, here’s the must-watch video below.

Virtual Russell Westbrook won it for the Rockets leaving James Harden quite upset, it may be just a simulated video but it’s sure fun to think about this happening in a real match.
The two stars will need to learn how to work together well if the Rockets are any chance of winning a championship next season. We’re not sure how it will turn out but we can’t wait to see how it goes.
