James Harden made history on Tuesday night by becoming the only player in NBA history to record a 60-point triple-double. He notched it against the Orlando Magic, finishing the game with 60 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists, earning a win for the Houston Rockets, 114-107, despite being shorthanded on the night.
His fans have been very proud of his accomplishment and they continue to make noise on social media about it until this day. One of them recently tweeted a photoshopped image of Harden holding the iconic paper held by Wilt Chamberlain when he scored 100 points, but this time with his stats from Tuesday’s game.
However, a San Antonio Spurs fan quickly roasted him with a picture that Rockets fans want to forget. It was the moment when Harden was blocked by Manu Ginobili in last year’s playoffs to seal a victory for them.

The exchange the two had was a hilarious one and it only goes to show that they are willing to put in some effort by using their Photoshop skills to shut fans from other teams. It was also liked by a lot of other Twitter users, as it was a highly-entertaining back-and-forth from two obviously die-hard supporters of their respective teams.

The Rockets won over the Spurs tonight with Harden leading the way once more for the Western Conference’s second seed. He scored 28 points and dished out 11 assists as compared to Ginobili’s five markers and three dimes.
The win pushed the Rockets closer to the Golden State Warriors and Harden further stamped his class among this year’s MVP contenders.
