James Harden on Russell Westbrook pairing: 'We'll figure it out'




 

There has been some doubt that James Harden and Russell Westbrook will be able to fit together with the Houston Rockets this season. Both players have matured quite a bit since their time together in Oklahoma City with the Thunder, and now there are real questions about Westbrook's ability to fit next to just about anyone.

Like Westbrook, Harden is a ball-dominant guard, and we still don't know the long-term plan for Coach Mike D'Antoni. Houston has real championship hopes, but they could also look much different in a year or two.

Still, Harden and Westbrook have known each other since they were 10 years old. They grew up together in Los Angeles, and are at least very good friends. To that end, Harden says that he believes they will be able to figure it out even if the first year together has bumps along the way.

Via GQ:

That's a pretty reasonable outlook to have at this juncture. The NBA is constantly changing, and it's possible that these two guys could have such a personal connection that their on-court conflicts end up being negligible.

It's another new era in Houston as they try to capitalize on the Golden State Warriors' injury issues.
