Harden really gave these kids a Christmas to remember.
James Harden and Santa Claus have more in common than just an amazing beard. Both are great at bringing the holiday cheer and spirit and for Harden, that was on full display when he brought 70 Houston-area kids to Target for a huge shopping spree.
The Rockets superstar and his charity foundation teamed up with a Target in Pearland, Texas and took the kids shopping on Monday. Each kid was given a gift card with a couple hundred dollars on it and was told to get whatever they wanted. The store was shut down in order to give the kids the best shopping experience possible.
According to TMZ, the kids involved had no idea they were going to be given this opportunity and were extremely happy with the experience. Karen Civil took to Twitter to explain how this was part of Harden's annual “3TheHardenWay” Christmas shopping spree.
The following day Harden took to the court to play his former team the Oklahoma City Thunder, and won, dropping 41 points.
