Five months ago, Korver, 38, wasn’t sure if he would continue to play professional basketball. After the Utah Jazz were eliminated in the first round of the NBA playoffs, he said he was mulling retirement. “I was beat up at the end of last season and I didn’t feel like I was able to play the way that I wanted to, so I just didn’t want it to be like that again,” Korver said Tuesday. “But I still love the game. I still love competing and I still feel like I can offer something. So as long as my family can do it, I want to keep going.”

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.
