James Harden and Russell Westbrook admitted they never considered becoming teammates again in the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The explosive duo opened up about joining forces in Houston and also revealed they had no plans to reunite in Oklahoma City.

Here is what the two superstars said, per Mark Anthony Green of GQ:

If the goal was for you guys to play together again, did you ever discuss James going back to OKC?

Westbrook: Discuss James coming to OKC?


Westbrook: Oh, nah! [laughs] No, that wasn’t a thought.

Harden: It’s impossible.

It’s impossible?

Harden: It’s impossible.


Westbrook: I never thought about that until now. [laughs]

Harden: I just felt like he gave, what, 12 amazing years. We’ve all seen Russ grow as a player. I just felt like it was time for a change. And I think everybody just needed it.”

Westbrook and Harden were teammates in Oklahoma City until 2012.
