When Brooklyn Nets general manager Sean Marks traded James Harden to the Philadelphia 76ers in mid-February, he was essentially making a big bet. Now, down 0-3 to the Boston Celtics in the first round of the NBA Playoffs, we may be seeing how that bet paid off. Essentially, the 46-year-old Nets executive bet on three players in that transaction and unfortunately for Brooklyn fans, it appears that he got it wrong.
Sure, it's just the preseason. And sure, it's not even at either of the teams home arena. But, that doesn't diminish the cool factor as I watched the Boston Celtics take on the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday!
If you have never seen this video before , prepare to be very amused! if you have seen it, watch it again! I saw this on a friend's Facebook wall today and while I don't always watch the videos people share for some reason this morning I chose to hit play on this one, I'm glad I did.
