NBA Fans React To James Harden Appearing To Have Gained A Ton Of Weight Before Lakers-Rockets Game

Disgruntled NBA superstar James Harden has had an odd season.

While the Rockets guard has asked to be traded out of Houston it seems like the Rockets are planning on keeping him for the entire season.

Front office executives around the NBA say Houston is growing more confident that Harden will be content to stick around at least through the rest of the season. Sources say Harden still prefers to be dealt, and losses like Sunday’s 18-point defeat to the Lakers won’t help Houston’s case. But Harden himself expressed optimism for Houston’s future on Saturday, telling reporters, “As long as we continue to find chemistry, we have a chance to do something special.”

While attempting to get traded it appears that Harden hasn’t gotten himself in shape. On Tuesday night, a video of a hefty looking Harden went viral on Twitter after the announcer on NBA TV made a snarky comment.

NBA fans of course had hilarious jokes about Harden’s apparent weight gain.
