Rockets superstar James Harden will definitely be watching the matchup between Golden State and OKC tonight. Harden himself was a teammate of both Durant and Westbrook before being traded to the Houston Rockets. All three made it to the NBA Finals with the Thunder in 2012 where they were defeated by the Lebron James led Heat.
When asked about the game, Harden had this to say:
“Yeah, I’ll tune in. I’ll see what’s going on. Everybody knows how Russ feels, so I want to see a really good game. I want to see Russ do his thing.”
It seems like Harden is looking for Westbrook to have a standout night while facing Durant for the first time on opposing teams. However the game goes, it is shaping up to be the most hyped game of the season so far. Here’s hoping it lives up to the expectations.
