Details have recently trickled out about Bryant’s private minicamp, for which he handpicked several superstars such as Kawhi Leonard and Paul George of the Los Angeles Clippers and up-and-coming players such as the Denver Nuggets’ Jamal Murray and New Orleans Pelicans’ Josh Hart. Thomas was also one of the chosen few, working out his mind and body for six hours a day for two consecutive days.

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. Yet through the very fact of being on the same team, Harden and Westbrook have already engineered one outcome that never should have been possible in the first place.
