The topic of James Harden is a sore one in Oklahoma City after they traded him away last season only to see him develop into arguably the best two guard in the NBA. Now teamed with Dwight Howard in Houston, Harden and the Rockets are a formidable for the Thunder in the West.
This brought the attention of Kevin Durant and Thabo Sefolosha who gave the fans an earful for their wardrobe choice. Even owner Clay Bennett took exception, and eventually the two relented and took the jerseys off.
It should be noted that last night the Thunder played the Nuggets, so there wasn't any real need to wear a Rockets jersey while sitting courtside unless you wanted to troll Thunder players/fans/owners. The two kids claim that one of their father's gave them a tickets on the condition that they wore those jerseys.
Check out how it unfolded on Twitter from as recapped by BeyondTheBuzzer.
