The players for the Rockets continue the trend of hanging out with each other this offseason. This time, it is at Trevor Ariza‘s wedding.
Congrats to Trevor Ariza and his wife Bree!
There was a former Rocket at the wedding as well. Josh Smith, a.k.a. the 2015 playoff hero, joined Ariza and Harden for the special event. While Smith will likely not return for another stint with Houston, it is still nice to see that he is close with some players on the Rockets.
The group seemed to have a great time last night at the wedding. The “wedding band” was actually Houstonian Travis Scott. Here’s some video of the event:

Trevor Ariza is a huge part of the Houston Rockets. He is good friends with multiple teammates on the squad including the two stars Harden and Paul. Why would the Rockets want to include him in a trade? He brings value on and off the court and is set for a bounce-back year offensively.
Anyways, let’s look at a few of the times that Harden and Paul have hung out this summer with other players on the team.
At the Summer League
Shortly after becoming a Rocket, Chris Paul joined a few teammates in Las Vegas to watch the Summer League team play. He was joined by Harden, Ariza, Bobby Brown, and P.J. Tucker. This event was just the beginning for the team this summer.
At the Drew League
Chris Paul sat front row at the Drew League game that James Harden and Bobby Brown played in. He got to watch the Beard go to work and drop 25 points on the competition. Now, Paul will join Harden and Brown tonight in a Drew League matchup against Russell Westbrook and his squad. How long before Russ fans say that he doesn’t have enough help?
Scrimmaging in LA
The main four of Chris Paul, Bobby Brown, James Harden and Trevor Ariza were at it again at a UCLA practice facility. They played in pickup games and showed the world the first taste of the Paul and Harden duo.

The fact that the team is close can only bode well for the Rockets this upcoming season. Hopefully, we get to see Paul and Harden dominate tonight in the Drew League.
