He’s impressed! Rob Kardashian gave a shout-out to James Harden on social media, despite the NBA baller’s fizzled romance with his sister Khloé Kardashian. The reality star gave props to the Houston Rockets player on January 16, applauding his incredible basketball season.

Rob showed love to the shooting guard by re-tweeting a post from Sports Illustrated that read, “James Harden’s scoring during his 30-point game streak which began December 13th…42.2 points per game. Not. Human.” The E! star also added his own two cents, writing: “Sheesh.”

Khloé, 34, and James, 29, dated back in 2015 and they were together for eight months before calling it quits in 2016. She opened up about their relationship during an episode of Kocktails With Khloé and spilled some details on why they didn’t work out. “I just don’t want to put up with people like that,” she said. “You want to be monogamous, but then you’re not monogamous.” The reality star added, “He wanted to be committed, then wasn’t committed. So KoKo had to let him go-go.”

The basketball star seemingly shared his side of the story during a candid interview. “I feel like it was for no reason,” James told Sports Illustrated, while not naming Khloé directly. “I wasn’t getting anything out of it except my name out there and my face out there, and I don’t need that. It wasn’t uncomfortable, but it wasn’t me.” He added, “I don’t need pictures of myself when I’m driving my car. Who cares? What shoes am I wearing? Who cares? Where am I eating? Who cares? It was unnecessary stuff that I think trickled down to my teammates…I had to eliminate that.”

Fast forward to now, and Khloé has since moved on with Tristan Thompson. The couple welcomed their first daughter last April and it appears they’re still going strong, despite his cheating scandal. Meanwhile, her brother Rob has been resurfacing on Twitter as of late, and it was just confirmed that he’ll be appearing more frequently on the next season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians
