James Harden visited the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday, and Reiss Nelson didn’t hold back embarrassing the NBA star over his football skills.

For any Arsenal fans out there who don’t follow the NBA, or basketball in general, James Harden is a point guard for the Houston Rockets and one of the best players around right now.

Harden won the NBA’s MVP award in 2018 and he’s been an NBA All-Star every year since 2013. He’s got millions of followers on Twitter and Instagram and he’s just generally a pretty big deal in the sport.

With their new home shirt officially out, Adidas helped organise Harden’s visit to the Emirates Stadium to try it on. Reiss Nelson was keen to turn the visit into a game of keepy-ups though, before scoring past the basketball star in a shooting challenge:

Unfortunately, it seems Harden’s football skills don’t quite match his basketball abilities, but then Nelson probably wouldn’t do so well on an NBA court, so that’s fair enough. It’s good to see stars from around the world donning an Arsenal jersey regardless!
