The James Harden era in Houston has come to a merciful end.
Less than 24 hours after Harden publicly declared that the Rockets’ issues ‘can’t be fixed‘, the 31-year-old, three-time scoring champ was shipped to Brooklyn in a blockbuster trade that involved four teams. The complete details of the deal can be found here, but the biggest takeaway is that the Nets now find themselves with their own big three, assuming Kyrie Irving decides that he would like to play this season. Even if he doesn’t, Harden and Kevin Durant would give Brooklyn one of, if not, the best duo in the NBA. So after months of rumor, speculation, and innuendo, Harden finally got his wish. Now all he has to do is lead the Nets to the franchise’s first championship. No pressure.
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. Harden is a walking bucket, having won three of the last four NBA scoring titles. So with that in mind, how many of the NBA scoring champions since the NBA/ABA merger can you name in five minutes?
