WATCH: James Harden gives game ball to 100-year-old Rockets fan on her birthday
James Harden is such a mensch
Wanting to make Lucy Pierce feel extra special on her birthday, Harden signed and then personally hand-delivered the game ball to the elder Rockets fan after the game. He also talked with Pierce for a moment or two and then showed off his toothy grin while taking a picture with her.
"Well, today's her 100th birthday, so it's a blessing," Harden told ESPN's Doris Burke in his postgame interview. "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."
