James Harden Comes Home Tomorrow To Play The Oklahoma City Thunder

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

It’s hard for me to tell myself this is just another regular season game in November. Ultimately, it is. In every Oklahoma City Thunder fans view, this is probably the biggest game in the early going. Not just to win another game, but for bragging rights.

Scott Brooks when asked about it being a normal game: “No, it’s not just another game. I want to beat the Houston Rockets,” Brooks said. “They traded me in the second championship year. It took me five years to get over Rudy Tomjanovich. Now we’re best buddies. But yeah, it’s still personal.”

It was a month ago from tomorrow when the deal broke loose. James Harden was sent to the Houston Rockets, along with Daequann Cook, Cole Aldrich, and Lazar Hayward in exchange for Kevin Martin, Jeremy Lamb, and future draft picks.

From that day on, analyst have been comparing Harden and Martin in basically every stat. Questions were starting to ponder if the Thunder were still contenders and if they still had the weapons to get back to the NBA Finals.

Russell Westbrook was asking on how much he’s talked to Harden: “None really. Not much.”

For Martin, it has to be a little emotional as well, “I had some great years down there. Not being in a Rockets uniform, it’ll be a little emotional,” he said. “But it’s part of the business and you wish them the best of luck and you go on with the game and try and win it.”

The main question now becomes how will Loud City respond to the intro of, “The 6’2 Guard From Arizona State University, wearing number 13 James Harden”

Will it be a boo for declining Sam Presti’s deal? Or a standing ovation for his great years in Oklahoma City?

Hornets Inexplicably Allow Durant Free Dunk

While I understand that Oklahoma City Thunder SF Kevin Durant is physically intimidating when driving the lane, the Charlotte Hornets should be ashamed of themselves for the defensive effort they put forth during this play. I mean, they didn't even try. The Hornets have made some solid strides this season, but boneheaded mental collapses like this will prevent them from continuing to build momentum.
