James Harden has eyes everywhere.
James Harden expressed discontent with ESPN’s content over the weekend. ESPN shared a video on their social media platforms featuring the Philadelphia 76ers guard enjoying burgers at a music festival.
Originally posted by Houston rapper Bun B, who was personally distributing burgers from his restaurant Trill Burgers at the festival, the video showed Harden helping himself to four burgers.

ESPN captioned their repost on Instagram with “Harden stocking up” and a burger emoji.
In response, Harden sarcastically questioned if it was a slow news week.

While it was evident that Harden was likely getting the burgers for his friends, the humorous visual didn’t sit well with him, especially as he is currently facing scrutiny due to his trade request from the 76ers.
When Harden requested a trade from the Houston Rockets in 2020, unflattering pictures circulated, leading to jokes suggesting that he intentionally let himself go to facilitate his departure from Houston.
The burger video has now revived these jokes, but Harden certainly isn’t finding them amusing.
