With the addition of Harden in Brooklyn, the Nets have reinforced their offensive prowess and overall gameplay alongside stars Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

And that could pose a threat to defending champions Los Angeles Lakers.

After the news broke out, a parody video by famous social media comedian and Youtuber Mark Phillips (SupremeDreams_1/RDCworld1) went viral.

Phillips, acting as LeBron James, can be seen fuming with rage after learning that Harden had joined his former teammate in Irving and championship rival in Durant.

“So it’s James, KD, and Kyrie? I’m 36!… “I can’t keep doing this! I’m tired — I just beat the Warriors!” shouted parody LeBron.

LeBron, this time for real, reacted to the video and had a good laugh by quoting the tweet with the same lines used by Mark for his comical content.

As of this writing, the video has garnered over 54,000 likes, 7,500 comments and 811,000 views on Facebook and 102,000 retweets and 46,600 likes on Twitter.
