James Harden of the Houston Rockets has pledged to give one million dollars of his personal fortune to the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Anyone who gives a penny should be applauded and not questioned when it comes to giving. James Harden is a little bit of a different story though. Harden plays in Houston for the fans of Houston. They basically pay his paycheck, and Harden just became the highest paid player in the league with a 4 Year - 223 Million extension. I mean you just got 223 Million to put a ball in a hoop for the next four years, giving entertainment to the city of Houston and surrounding areas. You have people that made that possible now evacuated and without homes and stuff. It just seems like a small donation to a city that made you the money in the first place. If it was me, I would dedicate this entire season salary to the victims. 40 million dollars - why not? You still have your 300 million Adidas deal, and another 160 million in a contract. 400 million more than any one person needs to play basketball.
