The USA men’s basketball team is gearing up for the FIBA World Cup tournament, and so far reports have stated that the team has looked sharp.
Among the superstars at training camp are former teammates with the Oklahoma City Thunder, James Harden and Kevin Durant.
Harden ultimately moved on to the Houston Rockets due to the fact that the Thunder could not afford three superstars on their roster, and a new rivalry of sorts was born.
After training camp today, Harden and Durant competed in a one on one king of the hill that also included Indiana Pacers guard Paul George.
According to reports, Harden and Durant put forth quite the effort against one another.
Most surprising part of competition was when James Harden blocked a Kevin Durant layup & talked smack to him. Those guys were going hard

Thankfully, the competition was caught on video and USA Basketball shared it with the world on YouTube. Check out all of the exciting action in the video below.
While it is great to see the competitive spirit of these superstars, some part of you has to miss Harden, Durant, and Russell Westbrook on one team no? Either way, we hope this is just the first of many king of the hill drills we see over training camp.
