Last night, James Harden possibly leaked the newest installment in the Call of Duty video game franchise.
Before the Houston Rockets defeated the OKC Thunder last night, there was some buzz on social media. James Harden came to the game wearing a hat that seemed to resemble that of the popular video game franchise Call of Duty.
The hat in question seems to have the logo of their rumored new game, “Call of Duty Black Ops 4.” Here’s the video:

It is interesting to see James Harden potentially involved with Call of Duty. We have seen other athletes in the past involved with the Call of Duty Black Ops, such as Marshawn Lynch of the NFL, but nothing like this. Will Harden be in the game of some sort?
Popular gaming YouTuber TmarTn tweeted out:
We agree, TmarTn. That would be quite incredible to see.
If this is the case, it’s been quite a gaming year for the Beard. He appeared on the cover of NBA Live 18 that released in late 2017 as well.
It’s also possible that James Harden just saw the hat and liked it. It could have nothing to do with Call of Duty. This option seems unlikely as there have been leaks going around now for weeks regarding the new game.
Call of Duty normally gives a sneak peak of the game during the NBA Finals, so maybe they are trying to get a little more involved with the league with leaks like this one.
As someone who loves both the Rockets and the Call of Duty franchise, this should be interesting to watch play out. Black Ops developer Treyarch has yet to say anything about the matter. We’ll update this situation as needed!
