The Houston Rockets’ James Harden has been active this offseason and hosted the second annual JH-Town Weekend over the last few days.

James Harden has had a busy offseason away from the Houston Rockets. He made an appearance at the Drew League, as per usual, he was seen with a bit more weight (no worries), and just these last few days he has hosted his JH-Town Weekend.

The weekend was even bigger and better than last year’s, boasting a celebrity softball and basketball game along with a comedy show to start things off on Friday.

Celebrity games

Softball

The celebrity softball game seemed to be a big hit. There was a nice mixture of NBA players and other celebrities represented. Here is the list that Harden put out before the game:

Gerald Green also participated in the event. It was Travis Scott, though, that made the most noise with a homer in the game:

Basketball

Some of those same celebrities also played in a basketball game on Sunday along with some new ones. The starters were all current or former NBA players, so the competition was a little higher for this game.

Starting 5s at #JHTownWeekend:

Tyreke Evans, Marcus Morris, Markieff Morris, Bobby Brown, Demar DeRozan on Team Black.

Travis Scott was back at it again, this time playing some fantastic defense on Meek Mill. He also got some buckets in the game. The Rockets are looking for another wing defender who can shoot, right?

Here are the full highlights from the game via BallisLife, including our very own Gerald Green hitting the eventual game-winner! That sounds about right for a Houston event.

Where have we seen Russell Westbrook and James Harden teamed up before? Hm…

Thoughts

The offseason is in full swing, with the JH-Town weekend being the biggest news since the Carmelo Anthony signing. I was hoping for a Melo sighting at the event possibly, but it wasn’t to be.

Next. 3 pros of Melo accepting a bench role

The Rockets will soon head off for the Bahama’s, according to multiple sources. They will look to prepare for next season in luxury as the team gets to know its new players and gets back in shape.
