James Harden speaks out on helping Houston amid Texas crisis
Despite no longer playing for the Houston Rockets, Brooklyn Nets superstar James Harden will always have a soft spot for people of Texas. The Beard revealed on Sunday that he continues to be on top of the current Texas Winter crisis, which is causing power and water outages across the state.
Harden added he is helping out in any way possible, despite being miles away from Houston right now (via ESPN).
“I’m on calls literally every day. All-day. Trying to impact the city because they showed me so much love and respect during the time I was there. I call Houston my home.”
James Harden says he's working to provide food and water for the city of Houston.

Harden’s rather generous ways have been well-documented in the past, particularly with the adult entertainment scene in his free time. But jokes aside, the 31-year-old former MVP is indeed making the effort to truly help those in need, even if he no longer has any obligations to the city he called home for almost nine years.
Harden’s Houston-based restaurant “Thirteen” has already handed out 3,000 meals to those stranded by the vicious snowstorm. Clearly, the eight-time All-Star has already let bygones be bygones after several frustrated fans left scathing reviews to his restaurant before it opened.
After that whole saga involving James Harden and the Rockets to begin the season, it’s evident that The Beard, who helped the Nets to a huge win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday, is looking much chirpier these days. He holds no ill-will to the Rockets franchise and the fans, who gave him the platform to become the superstar that he is today.
