In the 97.9 The Box interview, the Houston Rockets guard James Harden shared his thoughts on Russell Westbrook and Rockets’ potential playoff opponents in the coming season:
“It’s difficult playing against him, just because he plays with that aggression. He plays with that anger. But it’s going to be better to have him on our team now. Now we’ve got him and P.J. … crazy together.
It doesn’t even matter. We’ve got so much talent in that locker room, and our organization is so great. We don’t pay attention to other teams. We just focus on what we control, our team, and being the best we can be. Whoever we face, let’s get it on,” Harden said.
This past season, the 29-year-old averaged 36.1 points, 6.6 rebounds and 7.5 assists per game.
