Even though every NBA player is going to shoot the ball really good in isolation workouts, it’s great to see Harden looking spry. There were rumors going around that the Beard had contracted COVID-19 like Russell Westbrook, so this video is reassuring for Rockets fans around the world.
Before the 2019-20 season was suspended in March, Harden was averaging 34.4 points, 6.4 rebounds and 7.4 assists for the Rockets while shooting 43.5 percent from the field, 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 86.1 percent from the free-throw line.
Once the eight seeding games start on July 30, the Rockets will take on the Dallas Mavericks, Milwaukee Bucks, Portland Trail Blazers, Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings, San Antonio Spurs, Indiana Pacers and Philadelphia 76ers.
It sounds as if Harden and Westbrook are going to arrive at Orlando together. Rockets fans are anxious to see how far the two MVPs can lead the franchise once the 2020 playoffs start. Neither superstar has won a title in the NBA.
Harden, who lost a ton of weight during the NBA hiatus, has career playoff averages of 28.2 points in 73 postseason games with the Rockets.
