James Harden scored 34 points last night, but it wasn’t enough as the Houston Rockets lost to the Denver Nuggets 124-to-111 and fell to 0-and-2 on the season.

However, despite his request to be traded away from the Rockets, Harden is still speaking highly of new head coach Stephen Silas, telling reporters:

“He did a great job. Very confident, knew what he was drawing up and knew where to put his guys at.”

Hear what a three-time Super Bowl Champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe have to say about Harden’s impressive game:

“James Harden looks about 10-12 lbs overweight and came in with no training camp to drop 44 and 17. There have not been many players, if any, in NBA history that could do that. I’ve never, ever seen anything like Harden. It’s ridiculous.”
