Welcome back for the NBA Week Four recap! To be honest it was a pretty boring week… no real news or anything. Not! This week was highlighted by a massive trade that sent Rocket’s star James Harden to the Brooklyn Nets to team up with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, if he ever decides to show up to play. You can read more on that trade here. Now onto the highlights.
