The Houston Rockets made waves last week when they acquired former NBA MVP Russell Westbrook from the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Said trade was not made official until Tuesday evening when the Rockets took to social media and welcomed Westbrook to the team.

There’s a warning involved here. It might be hard for Thunder fans to see the photo that was included in the tweet.

Yeah, that’s just all sorts of weird. It’s also going to be weird to see Russ playing in the same back court with fellow former MVP James Harden.

Whether it works out remains to be seen. But Westbrook does not look bad in the Houston red and black. That’s for sure.
