Chris Broussard admits Rockets ‘got more talented’ after trade for Russell Westbrook
FOX Sports analyst Chris Broussard believes the Houston Rockets are going to be scary with the addition of former Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook.
The Rockets traded for Westbrook in exchange for Chris Paul and multiple first-round picks and swaps. The deal reunited Russ with former OKC teammate James Harden in Houston, who now has one of the most deadliest backcourts in the entire NBA.
While there are questions about Westbrook’s fit alongside Harden — given that the two are ball-dominant players — there’s still no doubt that the duo can strike fear into the hearts of any opponent.
According to Broussard, the Rockets definitely “got more talented” with the addition of Westbrook. He added Houston is now a team that other NBA teams would hate to play against.
“Houston got more talented. They are explosive. They’re going to be scary. They’re the type of team I’d hate to play against because Russ is just relentless. … And James is what he is, you can’t stop him.” — @Chris_Broussard pic.twitter.com/TTb1SRB1BM

Broussard’s remarks is interesting though. After all, while he said that the Rockets will be dangerous, he emphasized earlier that the Harden-Westbrook partnership won’t work because Russell “can’t shoot.”
Sure enough, it’s still too early to say what will happen with Houston after the trade. However, there are certainly high hopes that the team can make some noise in the star-studded Western Conference that boasts plenty of superstar duos like LeBron James and Anthony Davis (Los Angeles Lakers) and Kawhi Leonard and Paul Geoge (LA Clippers).
