Steve Nash was very satisfied with the debut of James Harden with the Brooklyn Nets against the Orlando Magic.

Harden posted a triple-double (32 points, 12 rebounds, 14 assists) in his first appearance with the Nets and received high praise by Nash.

“We know what he is: He’s a world-class basketball player,” Nash told reporters, via Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News.

Harden also made NBA history on Saturday, as he became the first player in league history to post a 30-point triple-double in his debut with a team.
