AceShowbiz - James Harden may have pushed a little too hard during a game between the Houston Rockets and the Boston Celtics. The professional basketball player is believed to be pooping his pants during the match on Saturday night, February 29.
At one point in the first half, the shooting guard, who was battling stomach flu before the game, was seen lying on the ground with a mystery stain on his pants. After screenshot of the moment spread online, fans could not help speculating that he accidentally soiled himself.
"Photo evidence the #Celtics made James Harden poop himself," one pointed out. Another remarked, "It appears that James Harden has shit his pants ladies and gentlemen." A third user posed a question, "Who made Harden poop himself???"
Some others posted memes and poked fun at the allegedly embarrassing incident. "James Harden couldn't wait to poop again," one roasted the 30-year-old athlete. "James Harden s**t his pants to honor Paul Pierce, who is in attendance for tonight's game. Rarely see today's superstars show respect to legends of the past like this. Awesome!" someone sarcastically tweeted.
James has not responded to the speculation, but he would not be the first athlete to have crapped his pants. In 2015, Florida running back Adam Lane showed a suspicious stain on the back of his pants. Since the game was being played on an artificial surface, many believed that he pooped his pants instead of catching the mud or dirt. Some of the Florida assistants were later seen helping Adam cover up his backside as he left the field.
Meanwhile, Paul Pierce recently admitted that he needed a wheelchair in the tunnel after a game of the NBA Finals in 2008 because he needed to go to the bathroom so bad. "I have a confession to make: I just had to go to the bathroom," he said in June 2019.
During the infamous incident more than 11 years ago, Paul was carried off the court and placed in a wheelchair where he was wheeled into the locker room after he went down grabbing his knee. He, however, then quickly bounced out of the tunnel and was back into the game. This led to a speculation that he had already pooped himself before he was carried off the court.
