Internet Had Fun With Photo Of Rockets’ James Harden During Hike


Professional athletes are doing what they can to stay in shape as the coronavirus pandemic has shut down most of the country.

Slowly, NBA facilities are starting to open back up in markets where local governments allow it, but workouts there still are very limited. Meanwhile, the pressure is on to get into in-season condition for the leagues impending return, targeted for July 15.

Houston Rockets superstar James Harden apparently is getting in his cardio by hiking, but some people on the Internet joked he maybe overdid it when a photo emerged from his trainer’s Instagram Friday.

Christian Polk, also Harden’s former Arizona State University teammate, uploaded a photo of the former league MVP coming down from the hike in Tempe looking pretty slim, with his beard, well, a little unruly compared to usual.

We aren’t going to rag on the man for what he did in quarantine. We’ll leave that to Twitter:

Here’s a little background on that last Tweet, in case you didn’t hear about how Harden has his jersey retired in a Houston strip club.

The internet is ruthless, but you have to love NBA Twitter.
