What Had Happened Was: 12/2/16
Oh, you don’t know? We got you.
In case you weren’t awake, or were on the East Coast, James Harden had yet another triple-double as the Houston Rockets were able to defeat the Golden State Warriors, 132-127, in double overtime. Harden had 29 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists to help snap the Warriors’ 12-game winning streak.
I believe that James Harden is just as important to the Rockets as Russell Westbrook is to the Thunder🤐

James Harden has 13 career triple-doubles, just one shy of tying Hakeem Olajuwon for most in Rockets history. pic.twitter.com/gnwNZLxRNM

This is just the Warriors’ third loss on the season, so don’t freak out, #DubNation.
Hip-hop artist J. Cole has kept a low profile for a while now. His last project was 2014 Forest Hills Drive in — wait for it — 2014. But now it appears that Cole World has something new on the way.
He also released a new documentary on the streaming service TIDAL called Eyez in preparation for the album, which will be called 4 Your Eyez Only.

Carolina, stand up.
On Thursday afternoon, yet another former NFL player was shot and killed in New Orleans. Former University of Southern California and New York Jets running back Joe McKnight was killed after he was shot several times in the middle of the road following a car accident. This follows the murder of former New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Will Smith, who was fatally shot this past April after a car accident in New Orleans, as well.
Damn RIP Joe McKnight. Killed in his own city, #504Boys4Life
