Odell Beckham Jr.’s scary thought on James Harden joining Warriors
It looks like Odell Beckham Jr. has been watching more than just Cleveland Browns games. In fact, he even reflected on the idea of Houston Rockets superstar James Harden teaming up with Stephen Curry on the Golden State Warriors.
OBJ noted how scary that team would be, specifically describing it to be “deadly.”
James Harden to the warriors would be deadly…..

Of course, the Warriors are not the same team they once were, with players like Kevin Durant moving on and joining the Brooklyn Nets in 2019-20. It also didn’t help the team that Klay Thompson suffered an Achilles injury in the offseason, preventing his return to the Dubs after his ACL injury in the 2019 NBA Finals.
However, Odell Beckham Jr. probably made the realization after witnessing Curry explode for 62 points on Sunday against the Portland Trail Blazers. After all, Harden himself is not new to such statistical feat, as he has scored 60-plus points in more than just one occasion.
While the Warriors are no longer the same dominant, championship team, they still have a game-changing player in Curry. With that said, a potential partnership with James Harden is definitely scary.
Harden has reportedly demanded to be traded from the Houston Rockets before the season started. While talks in that regard have subsided, there is still that notion that his days in Houston are numbered.
Unfortunately, the acquisition of Harden would surely hamper the Warriors’ long-term plans in terms of both parting ways with current players and a slew of future NBA Draft picks.
