Houston Rockets star James Harden gives family $10,000 when he sees them fishing for food

An NBA star practicing in the Bahamas decided he needed to do something when he saw a family trying to fish for their dinner. 

James Harden and some friends were riding four-wheelers in Nassau, taking a break from his off-season workout in Nassau.

That’s when he found a family fishing for food. Harden handed over $10,000 to the family, Sports Illustrated reported. The encounter was posted to Twitter by Troy Payne, a marketing manager for Adidas.

KHOU reported Harden gave money away to other children and adults he and his group came across as they rode around the island.

Once Harden returns to Houston, his charity, 3 the Harden Way, will hold the JH Town Weekendfrom Aug. 23 through 25. The event includes a comedy show, celebrity softball game and community outreach.

Harden began the charity weekend two years ago, telling KRIV at the time, “I’ve always been about the community. I’ve always been about people spreading love and joy.”
