James Harden has an idea of what friend purgatory looks like, and it involves a lot of time with Kris Humphries.
The two NBA players are appearing in a new ad for Foot Locker, and Humphries — who took his share of flak during his relationship with Kim Kardashian — is once again the butt of the joke. In the commercial, Harden gets on one of his friends for wearing the same pair of shoes two days in a row, especially since Foot Locker has new choices every day.
Harden and his pals ask the friend if he remembers what happened to another former friend who didn’t measure up — and was traded to Humphries’ entourage as punishment. Let’s just say it didn’t turn out as well for that guy.
Check it out in the video below.
