The beard and the triple doubler will top literally every stat in just the state team. Mind blowing
Ronald Saint Rose
Stupid and damn title... who's the better player? If you have a choice between Russ & Harden, who would you pick? Plus the Rockets has been Harden's team for like 7 years now.
I dont think Westbrook will be ok not being no 1 option.. and rightfully so as he's the better player of the 2
Jose Lucio
True, but I bet the rockets squad will favor Westbrook cuz james harden dribble dribble dribble and waits till 3 seconds to do something.

I like this Stephen, he isn't yelling...
Tj Playa is both Harden and Westbrook's team, period... Russ is one of the most talented players in the league.
Stupidity. Two max usage, low efficiency players who put up volume numbers, not quality numbers. Moving Paul’s contract was huge, and it’ll be a Good deal if they move Westbrook. Otherwise, no go. Rockets are a 3 pt shooting team and Westbrook is pathetic.

This will change soon once westbrook starts ripping rebounds out of Harden's hands.

The Russell Westbrook trade to Houston what i think it is its a good move for Houston, the only thing i see with this is both players like a lot of ball time so they have to work that out, what Westbrook brings to Houston is mostly speed a fast pace game that is the only difference the team will have, as far as making it a championship team that will not happen, they are missing a defensive player and another out side shooter they depend too much on Harden shooting, u got to have balance in that area they dont have it yet, you got to have a threat from defferent players not just one force u cant win championships like that.
Stephen A. said that Westbrook can't be guarded. Sure he can! Just let Westbrick shoot from the perimeter and that's how you'll keep him from scoring.
People (Hater Bitches) are soo offended my Rox got Westbrook.... Sssshhh!
That thumbnail says otherwise 😂😂😂
Thanh Duong
Would love to see Steven Adams joining the Rockets just because I love that guy playing with Westbrook
Bet wait till the seasons starts
I like this move.
