Were you expecting to see defense at a James Harden camp?

While Kevin Durant was making me and the media look like a bunch of wanna-be ballers in Austin, his former teammate and Shaqtin’ a Fool MVP James Harden was 3 hours east making kids look like fools at his annual basketball camp in H-Town.

In the amusing clip above, Harden does his best And1 mixtape move on a confused camper, dunks and then celebrates by jumping up and down with the little campers; If you replace those little kids with strippers then you have an idea of how it looks when Harden walks into one of the many, many, many “Gentleman” spots in Houston. I can’t remember the name of the exact spot (help me out Mignon Ashley) but there’s a club in Houston that actually has (or had) a giant poster poster of Harden behind the main stage.

Anyways, back to the Kroger (favorite supermarket shout out) sponsored camp for kiddos. Here’s some more great clips from the event including one of Harden showing off his hops with an off the wall oop and another with Harden showing the kids how he plays defense in the NBA (just kidding!).
