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. Photo of the Day Uh, isn’t he going the wrong way? Quote of the Day “He’s got to be careful. JET’s no spring chicken himself.” –Kevin Garnett, on Jason Terry’s claim that Garnett is nearly 50 years old and shouldn’t be playing as many minutes Tweet of the Day Pope jokes! So, Gary Bettman outlasted the Pope.— Jesse Spector (@jessespector) February 11, 2013 Video of the Day We don’t know what they’re wearing, but it looks like the Pacers are playing dodge ball.
