James Harden Draws Criticisms After Video Shows Him In Strip Club Weeks Before Start Of Season



With the NBA season less than a month away, and COVID-19 still raging around the country, the NBA is doing what they can to preserve the health of players, staff, and the community.

So when it was discovered that James Harden was living it up in a strip club on Saturday night, it raised a lot of eyebrows in the NBA community.

Going to the strip club isn't normally a problem, but the current circumstances of the pandemic and all that has been going on with the Rockets have complicated matters. It should also be noted that the 8x All-Star was absent from individual team workouts last week.

Amid a troubling time for the Rockets, it's just not a good look for Harden to be partying in a strip club right now, especially considering he's got a history of having fin in those types of locations. He even got his jersey retired by one after spending $1 million.

Needless to say, the Beard will have to really show up this season if he wants to keep the critics at bay.
