James Harden's defence (or lack of) has become a running joke throughout NBA circles and even the man himself has capitalised on the hilarity of his production on the defensive end of the court.
The Houston Rockets superstar has been rather busy lately with the new NBA season and his team getting off to a hot start in the Western Conference, but he has also been shooting quite a few adverts that you may come across.
He appeared in a recent Sportscenter commercial and has also starred in the new Footlocker Ad in which the 25-year-old gets rather agitated and points out that no one has ever called him 'defensive'.
Harden seems to be a good sport over his rather casual defensive style, he's certainly no anchor for his team but does he need to be when he has a center like Dwight Howard behind him.
You can't be that bad a player also if you're featured in an Ad campaign entitled 'week of greatness', there is no question when it comes to the offensive part of his game, Harden is one of the elite players in the NBA.

Harden isn't defensive!
James Harden is posed a simple question by two young fans, 'are you going to visit Footlocker this week',
The shooting guard instantly changes his stance to defensive, 'why wouldn't I go?!' he exclaims, whilst being told to calm down.
Uttering the words defence around Harden causes him to ramble on about no one ever classifying him as defensive.
