Fast forward to September, and Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday says he notices a difference at the team’s practice facility, and a big difference at that, thanks to new executive vice president of basketball operations David Griffin. “I feel like the whole vibe, the whole attitude in the facility and with the staff has just been different,” Holiday told ESPN by phone on Tuesday. “It definitely feels like people are ready and excited. It’s been like that ever since Griff has come into place.”

So begins the give and take of a radical experiment. Matchmaking mere superstars is passé. The Rockets, like the Warriors before them, landed an MVP to accompany their MVP. It’s not exactly the subtlest of moves; both Harden and Westbrook have big, loud games, inarguably bigger and louder than when the two began their careers together in Oklahoma City a decade ago. Only through separation did they fully become the anchors their respective franchises needed them to be. By reuniting, they hope to now find security in each other. “We’ve accomplished a lot of accolades, individually,” Harden says. “Now it’s time to accomplish something that we haven’t accomplished before.” It’s a long way to June.
