James Harden says the Oklahoma City Thunder are a one-man team

James Harden heads to the Chesapeake Energy Arena tonight to face a very different Oklahoma City Thunder team to the one he came up against last season. 

Since leaving the organisation in 2012, the nucleus of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and Serge Ibaka had remained intact - that was until the summer just passed. 

Durant and Ibaka are no longer in OKC, heading to Golden State and Orlando respectively, and Westbrook is the only big name that remains from the team that fell to LeBron James and the Miami Heat in the 2012 finals. 

As reported by ESPN's Calvin Watkins, when asked how the Oklahoma City Thunder are different without Kevin Durant, Harden simply said: "It's Russ, 

"It's Russ and it's a one-man show."

Harden should know all about one-man shows - he is leading his own parade in Houston and is currently averaging a league-best 12.6 assists per night and 30.3 points. 

Tonight the Rockets and Thunder face off in what will prove to be one of the most enthralling battles between two of the league's elite guards. 

Both franchises are sitting on six wins, although OKC has lost one more game, and the winner will certainly be decided by which one man shows up.
