James Harden is one of the most prolific scorers, and the former NBA MVP is having yet again another historic season despite the fact Rockets are not playing so well lately. On top of that, Harden is one of the highest-paid and famous basketball players in the world.
Something relatively unknown about Harden is that he is a big fan of strip clubs, which to some degree, isn’t such news because various athletes are seen in different clubs all the time. However, in the episode on the Joe Budden podcast, one of the co-hosts Mal shared an exciting story on how one strip club in Houston decided to retire Harden’s jersey to honor him in the best way possible.
James has his jersey like hanging from the top. They were doing that because they said James has been going in there spending like [a lot of money], you know what I mean? So they gave him his own jersey hanging from the rafters of the strip club.”
Allen Iverson was another NBA player that was often seen at various night/strip clubs throughout his career. Just recently, it was none other than Kawhi Leonard who enjoyed his free time at such an establishment after getting his first triple-double in the NBA. Whether Harden’s jersey remains hanging from the rafters of that strip club is unknown. Still, he obviously contributed to their business a lot if they decided to immortalize it in the first hand.
