Thoughts James Harden had during his homecoming

HardenI wrote a column for Not Your Father’s Water Cooler following James Harden’s return to Oklahoma City. 

Emotions were  high in Oklahoma City last night for the return of “The Beard.” It may have been all giggles and memories pre-game, but the southwestern hospitality didn’t carry over once the actual game started.

As far as homecomings go, for James Harden last night was a lot more sobering than the scenario he probably envisioned. It was the basketball equivalent of fantasizing about pulling up to your high school reunion in a Porsche 911 and parking in front of a fire hydrant like a boss…and instead showing up late with Cheeto stains around your mouth and unwittingly telling anyone within earshot about the sweet deal you just got on your minivan.
