Russell Westbrook James Harden Rockets

Former NBA MVP James Harden is among the best passers in recent Association history. He entered Saturday’s game against the Boston Celtics averaging 7.3 assists this season and has put up 5,140 helpers throughout his career.

Though, what we saw from Harden Saturday was something else. Check out the MVP candidate pass the ball to teammate Russell Westbrook. There’s one problem here. Russ was not in the game.

It’s absolutely tremendous stuff.

I am honestly surprised Westbrook did not put it up. Brodie has never met a shot he doesn’t like.

Even Rockets fans behind the bench could not help from laughing. While Harden has played tremendous basketball thus far this season, he now owns the funniest blooper of the year.

Job well done.
