Former OKC teammates and good buddies James Harden and Russell Westbrook have been reunited in Houston for an audacious experiment in small ball

The LA natives sat down for an interview with GQ and during the chat they revealed Nipsey Hussle was planning to start a sports agency when he was gunned down.

Harden: A couple days before he passed, I had rented a house in L.A., and he pulled up by himself—no security, no nothing. Beats [by Dre] set a whole dinner up. They came and cooked at the house, and we were talking. He had a deal with a casino.

Westbrook: Yep, in Vegas.

Harden: He wanted to do a Marathon sports agency. [The Marathon was Hussle's multifaceted company, which sought to uplift the local L.A. community.] So me, him, and [James's manager] Zo and all the homies, we were just talking about it. We just had an in-depth conversation, smoking a cigar in the back, just chopping it up about how big we can make this. And then one day I'm sitting back in Vegas, and I get the phone call, and I'm like, “It's impossible.”

Harden went onto say that he still hopes to make the agency happen.

With a couple of MVPs, almost 200 triple-doubles, and a gazillion wild tunnel outfits between them, the question remains: Can the great Houston Rockets backcourt experiment actually work? Read our March cover story at the link in bio. Photographs by @SebastianMader. Styled by @SimonRasmussen.
