There are few feelings more humiliating than being a professional athlete who just got clowned during a game in which your team was well on its way to a blowout victory. For one thing, your failure will stick out like a sore thumb. For another, because your team just won, everyone is going to be in the mood to make fun of you. Your only choice is to laugh with them, all while hiding your embarrassment.
Welcome to your new world, James Harden.
If Harden's teammates don't make fun of him for that every day for the rest of the Olympics, they are derelict in their duty to society.
