    just to clarify on the running back comment I said about Harden. I'm just looking at it from a downhill driving to the rim, physical standpoint cause he just bounces off of defenders cause he's huge. I didn't mean his build cause 6'5" is not the usual height for a running back lol I should have worded that part different

      Good video but ➡️At this moment Westbrook has not lost any athleticism. See the video with his father.

    This team gonna be a force to reckon with I feel lowkey Westbrook needs to consistently work on his 3 point shot and he will be a serious threat if u have the floor spacing with harden and Westbrook shooting daggers and running at the basket that’s lethal while one does a play the other is a spot up and u can’t dare leave either of them open tbh I see them as a threat as long as they get no injuries and don’t meet Golden State till at least the 2nd round

      Listen Man, I really appreciate your review and observations. I am serious with that because you took your personal opinions out of this video. Well good thing that Russ reconstructed his contract to accommodate the Rockets. I agree hopefully, Russ will not feel the need to jack up all those 3's as he did with OKC since there are many shooter. I truthfully think that Russ is an awesome teammate. I think with K.D. with his shady way of leaving OKC. He needed someone to blame and Russ was his scapegoat, and after the flames dim with the Paul George trade. To my understanding is that Russ wanted to be traded initially and Paul just did not want to be there in OKC without Russ and in according to PG's recent interviews. He and Russ are cool and still friends. I also agree with you that the Westbrook and Harden Duo is a B+ again great video.

                    You forgot that Chris Paul is hands down one of the greatest PG that played basketball. Those hamstrings injuries always hit at major times.

                      Again with the Russ didn't have any help in OKC narrative...Houston will be a first round exit, just watch. Also, there is no such thing as "Drive and kick game", it's just called hero ball.

                            I think Russ is gonna have a better overall season from the 3 and at the line...as long as the refs don’t rob him on calls like they did in the last 2 seasons at OKC then I think he’ll definitely be fine...he shot 88.7% from the line in the playoffs at 5 attempts per game

                                            Why grade them when they haven't even turned in their assignment? Pointless, not one fucking person knows what will happen.

                                              This was a horrible trade,they should've traded them coach and got someone that can coach Harden to run more than that one play that don't work in the playoffs.

                                                In the past 3 years either russel or James lead the league in assists. So you literally got the 2 best assist leaders in the games.

                                                  There is only one basketball on the court at a time, to keep hard it in Westbrook happy you would need three LOL
                                                  I think the Rockets next year going to be closer to a 500 team than a playoff team the grade of this should be more like a C minus

                                                      Westbrook is trash... he is not a championship point guard.... they'll have a good regular season and get exposed in the playoffs

                                                                                      because Harden is ALWAYS a ball hog, that hurts ALL his offensive teammates performance, with his constant dribble, dribble, dribble style of play that stagnates the ball & the Rocket's offense.... EXACTLY LIKE IT HAS HAPPENED OVER THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS IN HOUSTON.... and ALSO of course, because Harden ALWAYS CHOKES in the Playoffs, once he faces one of the other top teams.... EXACTLY LIKE THAT HAS ALSO ALREADY HAPPENED IN THE PAST SEVERAL YEARS IN HOUSTON.... Rockets will likely exit the Playoffs in SECOND ROUND again this year, just like last year.

                                                                                      i have said this SAME THING for past 5 yrs now & IT'S STILL TRUE TODAY: Harden will NEVER WIN A TITLE.... his style of play is only good to put up big regular season numbers, usually against all the mediocre & bad teams in regular season.... but come playoffs time, Harden's ball hogging, ball dominant style, hampers his entire team's offensive performance & IT WILL NEVER WIN IN THE PLAYOFFS.

                                                                                      • The Great Malik

Their defense will be better as Westbrook is bigger and more athletic than CP3. One of the Rockets biggest weaknesses was rebounding. And we all know Westbrook hunts for rebounds. I think the team will be better than most people think.
