In the end, that’s all James Harden can do right? The dude just had a brain fart mid-game. It happens to the best of us. Some people accidentally put the wrong shoe on the wrong foot while Harden tries jumping into a game while on the sidelines.
This is just a funny moment for everyone to laugh at and it’s nice to see James Harden have a good sense of humor about it. The referees handled as best as they possibly could as well as they just gave the Denver Nuggets the ball back.
Hopefully, Harden learned his lesson though.
