    You're right, they played with Kevin Durant, one of the best shooters in the league, and Westbrook was still shooting more than Durant, and sometimes shooting a lot more than Durant. If he wouldn't even concede to Durant do you really think Westbrook is going to concede at any point to Harden?

    Once Westbrook realizes he can't just get fed triple doubles every game he's gonna want out.

    I'm not that up to speed on NBA players, organizations, coaches and salaries. I watch some players and games, here and there as they might interest me. From what I have observed of Westbrook and Hardin, individually,, and coming together now this is my suggestion. Lock them in a room, with the coach, run continuous film of say, Curry and Klay,, who seem to be reasonable current examples of how to play off the ball. Then, continuous film of, say, Bird and Magic(alphabetical order, lol). If after all he film watching, they don't get the idea of how of how can continue to be Type A, but to check their egos, and put everything in the context of how to win as a Team, I'm thinking they'll be good into the playoffs but no championship ring.

    Harden and Russ have never deferred to a teammate since they’ve both become superstars. Walt Frazier was a natural point guard who was always pass first. Yeah he needed the ball but not like Harden, Russ, and even Earl Monroe. It’ll start off fine just like Harden and Dwight and CP3: but the test will come in the playoffs when Russ will need to take a back seat.

    he can't, because when Westbrook gets emotional or pissed off, you feel him and you see that he cares and he's a competitor. You respect it...Chris Paul is just a little whiny bitch with weird intensions

    I’m a Lakers fan people and I’m telling y’all this will be the best team bar injury going into the postseason. Why? If D’Antoni unchains Westbrook and unleashes him like he did Harden. Pay attention and help them figure out the little big tweeks. Man this shit could be unprecedented. The best backcourt Ever. Ever. Can you imagine Westbrook pushing the ball like Nash every chance they get? And the delayed break with all those 3 point shooters? Or Capella or Westbrook with the highlight finish? Besides those they will have plenty other options to score maaaaaannnn it’s gonna be bananas 🍌!!! I’m jelly man. Real talk. Houston gone be a force bruh y’all trippin. Frfr.

  • Big B

    Dantoni is the only problem with russ and harden.. hes not a real coach with a system and doesn't believe in defense.. harden and russ know what ppl are saying and if you don't think that pisses russ off you must be living in a cave with no wifi internet and electricity. Dantoni is a clown and it took harden and steve nash to make him actually look like he has a clue.. he'll be fired after this year because even though I see these 2 playing well I still see better constructed rosters that will stop them next season from winning a ship.

    So harden should have the ball every possession every game? He needs no team? Lol knock it off. Hes better than cp3, it's an upgrade. Who cares if harden is a bit better than russ at the moment. Doesn't matter, these guys know how to play. Period

  • SSA INVINCIBLEx

    Just stagger their minutes so that they can both play their style while one is on the floor and other is on the bench and in the final 6 minutes when they're both on the floor just simply go with the hot hand. PROBLEM SOLVED.

    Cp3 is cancer to a team. His ego and selfishness and reluctance to admit fault leads me to believe he's a narcissistic douchebag. Ask his former team mates. Glad that psycho will never win a ring.

    Just imagine how scary they could be if they just play 2 quarters each. Without each other, they can still get their own shots. Capella is the key to this Big 3 in Houston.

    Russ just need to learn timing. He has everything yiu want but the IQ. If he can just learn when to kick to the corner when to pull up when to dribble drive and finish he just has a sloppy game. He can be one of the best ever if somebody fix his game. Same for harden. He can get to the rim so easy. Even without the travel step back he is so amazing with the ball. Its like in the playoffs their IQ goes from superstar to rookies who just wanna look good! The two most talented but confusing players ever on the same team smh

    Harden Westbrook wont work.

    Both need the ball in their hands to be successful. Westbrook has taken a step back in his shooting game and has been shooting below 30% from beyond the arc the last 2 seasons. So even if Westbrook wanted to play off ball he aint gonna be efficient enough to catch and shoot. If the Rockets couldn't make it work with Harden and CP3, throwing Westbrook into the mix won't move the needle. In fact the Rockets have just taken a step back. Rockets will more than likely finish in 7th or 8th seed for 2020 season.

    Russell isn't #1 or 2 ball dominant... I see him pass it alot. I think this is going to work very well for the Rockets. People are sleeping on this "Westbrook is a ballhog" narrative and no, he's not. Harden certainly is. Westbrook is going to take so much pressure off him. I see this working well for HOU provided they get their big man situation in order.
