Kevin Hart Videobombs James Harden After Another Historic 50-Point Triple-Double
On the last day of 2016, James Harden blessed us with the first 50/15/15 game in NBA history, while tying the late great Wilt Chamberlain for the highest point total (53) with a triple-double. On the fourth Friday of 2017, Harden became the first player in NBA history with two 50-point triple-doubles on his resume.
“He played about as good as you can play,” Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni said after the Rockets victory over the 76ers. “I’ve been around a lot of players, but it doesn’t get much better than that. I’ve never seen better than that.”
Harden had 36 points in the second half and finished the game with a daily fantasy God line of 51 points, 13 boards and 13 assists.
Another interesting piece of trivia is we have seen three 50-point triple-doubles this season and just six in the previous 70 seasons; Harden’s former teammate Russell Westbrook has the other instance this season.
This is also a good time to bring up former teammate Kevin Durant’s recent comments about Harden saying Harden could have been the best 6th Man ever. I know it was meant to be a compliment but in a way it’s an offensive comment which could be said about any MVP candidate putting up numbers like only a couple of NBA players have ever done; It’s like if Shaq would have said “Kobe could have been the best 6th Man ever if he remained Eddie Jones’ backup.”
Anyways, let’s end this by getting back to the highlights and watching Kevin Hart video bomb Harden and the lovely Cassidy Hubbarth.
