    Hopefully we can reminisce about Harden like we do Hakeem when his career is over.

    The rebounds were offensive not defensive. Thus, Harden still sucks at defense. :p

    talkin' about meaningless "stats"... it's like saying lebron was the youngest player who did this and did that.

    i bet harden was the first rocket who had 2 3-doubles in a season AND wore #13. why didnt they mention that...

    harden's beard to points ratio trumps all stats. more plyaers need to grow their beards so they can be like harden

    Since Josh came back, Harden has been a different player....

    Well at least on offense... Still gotta work harder on defense..

    Gotta give credit, where credit is due..

    Meaningless in the sense, it doesn't guarantee a championship, but it's still a niiice accomplishment. Hasn't been replicated in 25+ years and the guy who did it is arguably the GOAT.


    One thing I do wish in these instances is more info. Like...

    - Who did it only once in a season?

    - Whose stats come close? ---- 14 rebs or 8-9 tally in 3rd category.

    - Who did it before the last person?


    Regardless, nice accomplishment for Harden. The recent game he had which related to Wilt was beast :cool:

    The drunken master. The more intoxicated, the better he pads hus stats.

    They televise the Rockets/Spurs game so they're marketing their product.

    anytime a triple double is a great achievement, no doubt.

    i was just sayin' meaningless in a sense like,,, for instance, why 15rebs? why not 14 or 18? its such a random #. it's not like 15 is a special #.

    Surprised nobody has it done it, not even Olajuwon, since 1990 and now! Guess it's an 'accomplishment' although all these dumb things like triple, quadruple double, streaks of games with more than so many points, assists etc, youngest to do this, oldest to do that, so many games doing this or that, they do not mean jack to me. We are winning so I'll take anything positive right now, but let's not fool ourselves and think Harden has all of a sudden been playing different.

    But he is James Frauden who should be traded asap for players and picks and will never be part of a championship.
