James Harden and Russell Westbrook are having excellent individual seasons, scoring, passing and rebounding for their respective teams.
“I’m having a blast to be able to create, get guys open shots and just make my teammates better,” said Harden in a postgame interview on NBA.com when asked about his new role this season.
With the Rockets playing Westbrook and the Thunder this week, Harden was asked about the season his former teammates is having.
“Russ is unnormal. I call him a created player,” said Harden. “It seems like he never gets tired, he’s everywhere. He’s so athletic. I’ve been on Russell since I was 10 years old at Boys and Girls clubs. He’s just doing things people said you couldn’t do. He’s playing at an all-time level right now.”
