Philadelphia 76ers star James Harden celebrated his 33rd birthday this past week.
With the offseason in full swing, Harden was free to party it up and have a good time with his close friends and associates to commemorate the big occasion.
One person who everyone knew was going to be a part of Harden’s festivities was his good friend and internationally renowned rapper, Lil Baby.
Harden’s memorable ‘gift bag’ for Lil Baby on his birthday famously went mega viral.
This time around, Lil Baby decided to return the favor with a special present of his own:
With social media being what it is nowadays, NBA fans had a lot of different reactions to Lil Baby’s gift for Harden.
The responses largely speak for themselves:

All in all, it looks like Harden had a tremendous birthday. Photos of him partying it up with Kevin Durant and Trae Young paint a fun picture. And frankly, he deserves it.
Harden has been putting in serious work this summer. His body transformation largely speaks for itself. And while he obviously has made some partying exceptions, like for his birthday and when he did it big with Rachel Nichols, he has largely been staying in.
Staying in and chilling with his girl — which is always a nice, safe practice when you’re trying not to go too hard in the offseason.

Will it ultimately lead to an NBA championship for the 76ers in 2022-23?
Time will tell.
