During a broadcast of the 2019 NBA Finals, Paul Pierce made a famous confession: his dramatic wheelchair exit in Game 1 of the 2008 Finals was actually just a bathroom break.
“I have a confession to make,” Pierce said. “I just had to go to the bathroom.”
Today, James Harden is facing a similarly pressing matter. In last night's game against the Celtics, he toppled over on his back at the end of the first half. A mysterious stain was spotted on Harden's shorts that is causing many to question just what transpired during those first two quarters.
Needless to say, it became the joke of the night for fans unfortunate enough to find out.
"And everyone says Harden only takes 3’s. Here’s a great example of him taking a solid 2."
"Harden just stained his legacy."
“Anybody could be 6’5 and sh*t themselves in a game, it doesn't take skill.”
The jokes may be a bit premature because we don't actually know what was on those shorts. At this point, though, the damage is already done. Hopefully, Harden got himself a new pair of shorts.
