The NBA has no chill. No offseason.

Just when it seems things were slowing down, Thursday evening Russell Westbrook was traded to the Houston Rockets for Chris Paul, reuniting James Harden and Westbrook in what the Rockets believe is an upgrade for them.

NBA Twitter lost it. Actually, NFL athletes lost it.

As did a lot of NBA players.

NBA fans (and media) were having fun poking the Rockets a little and thinking about Westbrook and Harden sharing the rock.
