Steve Kerr Tweets And Deletes A Comment Calling Out James Harden
James Harden made history on Tuesday night by recording the first ever 60 point triple double–finishing the night with a mind-numbing 60 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in a 114-107 home win against the Orlando Magic.
Harden’s historic game will be likely his feather in the cap in his MVP campaign. Couple that with his four 50-point games this season (the rest of the NBA has a total of four), his league-leading scoring average, and third place in assists, the 28-year-old may very well secure the MVP accolade that barely alluded him a year ago.
Harden is a one-man show and by all standards, great for the league. Well, I guess that depends who you ask. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr aimed to detract from Harden’s praise by tweeting and deleting a jab at Harden and the referee’s refusal to call travels on his go-to step back move.
Kerr responded to this clip tweeted out by the NBA:
“It’s an embarrassment,” Kerr wrote. “I think the league is so happy with all the scoring that it doesn’t want to enforce stuff like that.”‘
Dude, if you’re going to bitch and moan about the lack of travel calls in the NBA, you’re about 10 years late. Traveling is the basketball equivalent of jaywalking.
