Rockets’ James Harden congratulates Randy Moss on Hall of Fame induction

James Harden currently has a lot to get hyped about. He has successfully returned from a grade 2 hamstring injury and the Houston Rockets are back to being offensive and defensive beasts.

Another thing he’s excited about right now, though, is the recent announcement that former NFL wide receiver, Randy Moss, is heading to Canton, and officially a first-ballot NFL Hall-Of-Famer.

Here’s the Rockets All-Star giving his congratulatory tweet:

Moss played in the NFL from 1998 to 2012, and as a 28-year-old, Harden is on the age bracket that had built-up a certain love and nostalgia for the superstar receiver. Any football fan that was born between the late 1980s and the early 90s saw Moss’ prime years while being a kid, a teenager, and/or a grown, early 20s-aged individual.

The phrase “Moss’d” started when Moss was making 50/50 jump ball catches look like routine plays. Whether it was on the middle of the field or the red zone, he became a seemingly unstoppable weapon when high passes are thrown on his side. At 6-foot-4, he had the height to do such things, but there was also great speed, athleticism, and route running involved.

Among Moss’ notable league records are most touchdown receptions in a season (23) most touchdown receptions by a rookie (17).

Harden, meanwhile, is still building a resume to get in the NBA Hall-Of-Fame. His last six seasons have all been productive, but he may need a couple of more years on such pace, as well as championships or deep playoff runs.

“The Beard” is averaging 27.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 7.7 assists per game since the 2012-13 campaign.
