The Denver Nuggets on Sunday night agreed to trade Ty Lawson to the Houston Rockets, which means the 27-year-old point guard is now teammates with James Harden. That might be a little awkward at first.

When the Dallas Cowboys lost their season opener to the San Francisco 49ers last year, a series of internet memes mocked them for their horrendous defense. One of those memes involved Harden wearing a Cowboys headset, and it went viral after Lawson tweeted it.

As most of you know, Harden has a reputation for loafing on defense, which this lowlight video shows.

Lawson’s tweet wasn’t nearly as bad as what those two NBA rookies once said about their current teammates, but he’ll have to hope Harden has a great sense of humor about it.
