The new King James
We begin in the NBA, and LeBron James and James Harden went head to head on Sunday in an epic encounter between the Houston Rockets and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Harden and the Rockets dominated, edging the game in overtime 105-103, with the shooting guard scoring 33 points and making 8 rebounds.
Post-game, the Rockets ridiculed LeBron with this tweet via their official account.
The Cavs' James missed some key throws during the course of the Cavaliers' loss to the Rockets on Sunday, while Harden made more than enough key shots to enhance his glowing resume this season.
Harden outplayed LeBron (33 points on 18 shots vs. 37 points on 35 shots) and continued to stake his claim for the NBA MVP. Naturally, the Rockets were quick to shout from the roof top who they think is King James these days.
