James Harden is a hungry man.
Harden’s interest in joining the 76ers next season seemed unlikely after their playoff elimination.
While he chose to stay for the final year of his contract, it was believed this was a strategic move to facilitate a trade.
However, it has been challenging for the franchise to find a suitable trade partner as the teams Harden prefers lack the assets the 76ers desire in return. This has led to speculation that Philadelphia may not move Harden before the season begins, causing drama in the NBA.
There have been rumors that Harden might intentionally gain weight as a protest, and a recent video at a music festival suggests he may be actively trying to bulk up.
During the festival, Harden attended an afterparty where he indulged in four burgers at once.
