A10: Their motto is creators never follow (sure James the $200M have nothing to do with it)

Q11: (assuming this is from a kid) who asked if Harden like his room (which is all done up to honor Harden)

Awesome! #hardenflchat https://t.co/2QWdCgyCoK

A11: Obviously Harden was impressed as was Daryl Morey who retweeted it

Q12: How about a collaboration with Kanye/Yeezy?

A11: Though the question  didn’t say the inquirer was asking about Kanye and adidas that’s how Harden responds

Finally, Harden ended the Q and A with a tweet featuring his new footlocker – adidas commercial:

To get a Boost of confidence I always trust @adidas kicks from @footlocker…and #HardensInnerVoice of course. https://t.co/bJTVXDECtX

So, while I’m a fan of Colin Farrell I actually think the commercial is pretty corny (especially the ending), but hey that’s just me.
