Video: Rockets star James Harden celebrates 30th birthday with Meek Mill
James Harden is a bonafide superstar of the NBA. It’s hard to talk shop about the league and not brush up on the bearded man who is carrying an entire city on his back.
The 2018 MVP winner deserves nothing more than the best birthday he could get after toiling season after season for the Houston Rockets. That’s exactly what The Beard did when he celebrated his 30th birthday with none other than Meek Mill.
Alykhan Bijani tweeted out a video of a series of Instagram stories that documented how Harden’s birthday went down:

The video showcased Harden celebrating in a club with plenty of people present. He blew 30 candles atop a customized cake that has the Rockets logo and his number on it.
Later on in the video, the Going Bad rapper was caught giving birthday licks to Harden. It showcased just how good of a time Harden is having with his friends on his special day.
Of course, it will be all fun and games until preseason officially starts for the NBA. He skipped out on playing for Team USA so he can boost his chances of winning the NBA championship. The league is the most open it has been in years, and Harden will want to win his first chip with teammate Russell Westbrook.
We can expect nothing but fun times to come out of Harden’s social media pages until then, though. The season is a long one, and battling through 82 games can be tough. Harden can use all the rest he can get. After all, he’s the one carrying the Rockets to deep playoff runs.
