  • last night, Jay, you were locked in, uh, to your nets.

  • Big one last night on ESPN.

  • Coming back to Houston was James Harden your thoughts on that.

  • And then, like I said, if you're just waking up this morning, there's a huge NBA story Not a lot of people are talking about.

  • We'll get into it.

  • We didn't think about it going into the night because everybody was focused on Harden.

  • What do you make of the return?

  • The Nets of it?

  • The All Star break on fire.

  • I mean, bread in love is the Brooklyn way, right?

  • I mean, that's that's what James Harden is doing right now.

  • I mean, 29 points, 14 assists, 10 rebounds.

  • I think he put it on the show last night for Houston.

  • Initially, there were a lot of booze, uh, mixed with some applause, I think when they had the tribute video for him when he came out and kind of, you know, put his hand over his heart.

  • I think you heard more applauds than booze, but look like he said yesterday, I think whenever you get booed, that's a sign of respect.

  • And at the end of the day, He was very graceful in the way he said, Hey, I think Tilman Fertitta for, you know, standing out that they're going to retire my number.

  • But I mean, look, you expected Brooklyn to win.

  • You expect that James Harden to put on a performance?

  • Uh, I just Every time I watch Houston play, I feel worse and worse for them.

  • I mean, John Wall and Victor Oladipo had 30 plus points, but look, they lost their 13th straight.

  • Um, it just it's gonna get tougher and tougher for Houston.

  • And it continues to build that narrative about who wants to own Houston.

  • DeShaun Watson.

  • And they got the Houston Rockets playing poorly, uh, just tough for them, But still, I think it was overall great performance for for James Harden last night.

  • But he was not the performance of the evening.

  • The performance of the evening went to the Philadelphia 76 ers.

  • There were boos.

  • There were cheers.

  • They gave him a tribute video last night Key, which he saw James Harden come out, put his hand over his heart.

  • I think he got the respect that he was looking for, but he got that mostly by having a triple double.

  • 29 points, 14 assists, 10 rebounds.

  • We expected them to win this game, but ultimately watching the relationship that will continue between the Rockets organization and James Harden was the pivotal moment.

  • Uh, they're gonna retire his jersey, And I think that was Tilman Fertitta, the owner, saying, Hey, look, we want to amend ways.

  • Uh, the way we handled it, the way we thought you handle it probably wasn't in the first class manner, but we're trying to move forward.

  • And I think James Harden handled that very graciously last night and they're gonna retire jersey in the future.

  • Obvious, right?

  • Um, I think when you look at the difference between Embiid and a James Harden for M V P, where are these teams going to be?

  • In the end?

  • That's how I look at it.

  • You know, I think that the war should run into the postseason.

  • Jalen Rose doesn't think so.

  • Some others doesn't think so, but I think it should run into the postseason before you give it out because you know, one and done MVPs and your team get bounced in the first round.

  • I don't like that.

  • You're right.

  • You know, but I don't know.

  • I don't think that Philadelphia or the Nets will get bounced in the first round.

  • I think both of these guys are playing well.

  • We obviously have seen James Harden continue to do whatever it is that he's always done.

  • I mean, think about it, though.

  • Even at OK Cie.

  • When he had the minutes he was getting, he was cooking and then he just got better.

  • And then it became who he is today after his stop in Houston.

  • And I still have James Harden, number one Joel and beat number two LeBron James.

  • Number three.

  • But I tell you, every time I watched you all and be and I'm like, man, he keeps making his way like he keeps inching up there.

  • I mean, last night was another huge performance against a multi dimensional defender, and Rudy Gobert was one defensive player of the year multiple times and Joel and beat at 40 points.

  • I mean, I thought the signature gave me out against the Bulls where he went for 50 points, was one, but last night was a game changer moment for me.

  • He just needs to stay healthy.

  • Yes, if he can stay healthy, keep his weight down.

  • You know, I think having Glenn Rivers as his coach and that coach and staff that he's assembled in Philadelphia certainly is getting the best out of both him and Ben Simmons.

  • And Tobias Harris is helping along the way as well.

  • There's no doubt about it.

  • Tobias Harris had 11 points in overtime yesterday.

  • Joel Embiid, 40 and 19 6 over the Jazz last night in the extra session and the Keys point.

  • It's gonna be a great race down the rest of the way right now is the Nets hit the All Star break.

  • The only team they're looking up at in their division is the Sixers, who are game better 24 12, 24 13.

  • It's going to be great coming down the stretch, for sure.

  • So then the Nets have been doing it without Kevin Durant, right?

  • So imagine when there are strength they don't they don't need Kevin Durant.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube.

last night, Jay, you were locked in, uh, to your nets.
