Over the past week, Houston Rockets' James Harden has shown that he is Houston through and through with his actions in the past week.

As we all know from the news over the past week or so, Hurricane Harvey has affected many lives in the state of Texas, causing flooding most notably in many parts of the Houston metropolitan area.

Many sports stars that have links to the area and those that simply want to help out as well have supported those affected by the storm one way or another, whether that be through donations or actually being on the streets helping people get out of the disaster.

One of those sports stars who has helped out is the Rockets' Harden, as, during a news conference at the NRG Center with Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner on Saturday, according to ESPN, the point guard has said he will donate $1 million to the city of Houston to aid in Hurricane Harvey recovery.

The 28-year-old regards Houston as his home despite the fact he went to high school in California and college in Arizona. When a fan asked him to never leave Houston, Harden reassured him that he wouldn't be going anywhere.

He said on Twitter in response to the fan's plea for him to never leave Houston: "Promise I won't. #Rocket4Life"

Harden signed a four-year extension in July with the Rockets, a supermaximum extension that will guarantee him $228 million through the 2022-23 season. With the new additions to the Rockets over the summer to make them more into a championship contender this season as well, he isn't going to be going anywhere anytime soon.
