VIDEO: James Harden reacts to Rockets tribute video

Rockets, James Harden, nets

The Houston Rockets honored former team superstar James Harden with a tribute video during a timeout on Wednesday as they hosted the Brooklyn Nets in the Toyota Center.

It was the first time Harden returned to Houston, and the Rockets made sure they let him know how much they appreciate all that he has done for the franchise.

First off, here’s the tribute video that played on the big screen during a timeout in the first quarter of play (h/t ClutchPoints on Twitter):

Harden was an eager spectator of the video (he probably wasn’t paying much attention to the Nets coaching staff during the time out — which is completely understandable) and this was his reaction after the clip ended:

Needless to say, there’s nothing but love between the Rockets and Harden at this point. His exit from the team a couple of months ago was anything but ideal, but it appears that both parties are now willing to put that incident behind them. So much so that team owner Tilman Fertitta recently announced that the franchise intends to retire Harden’s No. 13 jersey number.

Be that as it may, Rockets fans will still be hoping that Harden and Co. come away with a loss in this first encounter.
