VIDEO: James Harden's Reaction to Mike D'Antoni Pulling Him Just Shy of His Career High is Priceless

James Harden was a menace on the basketball court on Saturday night, scoring 60 points against the Atlanta Hawks and just narrowly missing his career high. Considering the Rockets were up by a billion, we don't blame head coach Mike D'Antoni for sitting his best player in the fourth quarter. However, Harden thinks otherwise.

Harden has a sense of humor.

The former MVP and perennial All-Star has loftier goals than personal accolades in mind this season with new teammate Russell Westbrook. Harden doesn't receive the 'load management' breaks his fellow stars get on the regular, so D'Antoni is going to sit the 30-year-old whenever he gets the chance.

For now, Harden will have to settle for 60. Oh well.
