GOOD NEWS James Harden Presents 100-Year-Old Fan with Signed Game Ball
Houston Rockets star James Harden had another huge night Wednesday, scoring 38 points in his team's victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.
But it's what he did after the game that has captured the headlines.
Harden presented Lucy Pierce, a fan seated courtside for the game who will celebrate her 100th birthday Saturday, with the game ball.
He autographed the ball and posed for photos with the devout Rockets fan.
"Well, today's her 100th birthday, so it's a blessing," Harden told ESPN’s Doris Burke after the game, though he was slightly off on the actual date of Pierce's birthday. "You know, she's excited, she's sitting on the court. She kept smiling over there. I had to go give her the game ball and tell her how blessed she is and I am for meeting her."
