James Harden: Good at Dunking, Drew League Edition

I missed this clip on James Harden, which came out a few months ago. Harden suited up for the Drew league, along side fellow Thunder Kevin Durant and Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley. Harden put on a show to the tune of 51 points, and punctuated his play with this reverse slam (0:58 in):

Watching this dunk should immediately make us think of the sweet slam that Durant had a few days ago in the MELO league. This of course raises the obvious question: given that Harden's dunk came first (and Durant is trailing on the play, so he got a great view of it), was Durant really trying to pull off a Jordan-move in B'more, or was he just trying to copy his teammate?
