James Harden is willing to do “whatever it takes” to make the restart of the NBA season safe for everyone.
The superstar of the Rockets understands the risks of resuming the season, but wants to do his best to play basketball again.
“Another thing to consider is what exactly the players will and won’t be allowed to do once they’re inside the complex. Among the Rockets, Russell Westbrook has been heavily involved in those discussions.

Russell Westbrook has been deeply involved in conversations about what the players can and can’t do in the Orlando bubble.
