The Houston Rockets won Sunday’s match up against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers through agitation. The former two time champ was visibly frustrated, and it showed.
With the game on the line, LeBron missed a game winner in regulation, and two crucial free throws to cement the loss in OT (3-11 from the charity stripe).
Given the 33 point performance from Harden, and the extreme mishaps from James, the Houston Rockets marketing team thought they would get clever by dethroning LeBron and naming a new king.

Harden is in a close race for MVP with Steph Curry. He’s leading the league in ppg. He can destroy every elite defender in the NBA with his handle. but dethroning the best in the game? Not quite.
Perhaps someone should tell the Rockets this: When LeBron and Harden go head-to-head, LeBron's teams are 11-5. He's scored 470, Harden 264.

And although LeBron has the edge in overall head-to-head, yssterday afternoon belonged to one man and one man only: the Bearded One.
