James Harden & Russell Westbrook Reunite In Charity Game With Travis Scott & Meek Mill

It was an OKC reunion in Houston on Sunday. Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook made a surprise appearance at James Harden’s 2nd annual JH-Town Weekend charity game to play alongside his former teammate from the 2010 Thunder team that went against LeBron in the 2012 NBA Finals.

The unstoppable duo were joined by current Rockets Gerald Green and P.J. Tucker and former Rocket Josh Smith. The opposing team featured new Spur DeMar DeRozan, the Morris Twins, Tyreke Evans and Harden’s Drew League running mate Bobby Brown.

Westbrook provided two of the best highlights of the night: One was him catching an oop from Harden like they used to do during Harden’s rookie season and the other was him savagely blocking rapper 21 Savage, who tried to do his best euro-step move that Westbrook and Harden have perfected.

For many, the most entertaining part of the game was the “match-up” between H-Town’s Travis Scott and Meek Mill; The two rappers hilariously played defense like they were in a no blood, no foul jail league.

Scott’s highlight of the night (which happened while Meek’s former girlfriend, Nicki Minaj, was ranting on Twitter about her album being outsold by Travis Scott) was knocking down a three-pointer over Meek and celebrating by giving him the finger and then “shutting him down” on the other end.

The basketball game was the final event of the three-day JH-Town Weekend, which also included a comedy show and a celebrity softball game. Like the basketball game, home run-hitting Travis Scott stole the show on the diamond, which is OK with the league MVP since all of the money raised during this weekend’s event went to his 3 the Harden Way foundation.



Here’s a few throwback clips from their early days in the NBA.
