    1 video and you call at trust issue now. James Harden is right to think before give it to him. If Russell was inside the arch maybe.

    Nope I agree wit jay that was pathetic and harden has reason to not trust Russel but maybe if he give the ball up and plays off Russ can create for him and get him an open shot.

    1. Jay you took my Batman Superman thing and Superman is the best player so that would be harden.. 2. Harden is not an idiot he knows Westbrook cant shoot... He also knows Westbrook will shoot it..

    Dafuq y'all smoking da media has bn riding these 2 nuts since da trade. Wat Jay Will pointed out is wat a lot of ppl should've bn concerned about with them teaming up. Dis isn't Hardens 1st time doing sum similar. Westbrook couldve drove or hit a mid range if Harden dished him da ball.

    Let's be honest if harden would've swung it earlier we both know Russ would've went for his go to middy,this is not trust issues it's common sense,Harden was just playing basketball, he's a play maker, I can count plenty of times harden has swung the ball to Westbrook this season with no hesitation

    Harden is unstoppable but as superstar player and leader how can you Chuck so much when your playing alongside a talent like Westbrook ? The basketball purist in me would love to play off ball with a guy that level but too each its own btw I can see jay point but he's reaching with this one

    If Harden trusted CP3... he would still be in Houston. This was a bit of a reach Jay Will.

    No, if you had the best shooter in the game currently you would want him to shoot in a 1v1 which for him is still easy rather then pass it to a great passer as seen, they have great chemistry as seen in the highlights they work well.

    Westbrook is actually playing better and getting more comfortable. He had a knee procedure that he was recovering from obviously because right now Westbrook looks very unstoppable. Guys got to do a better job of doing their homework before reporting false narratives.
