Throughout his stellar NBA career, the one thing that James Harden has failed to earn is a ring. 

And, judging by the look on his face in a viral video from a recent wedding, he might be looking to avoid a ring of a different variety. 

The video was shot at a wedding reception this past weekend which Harden attended with girlfriend Paije Speights. 

Speights, a Detroit-based fashion designer, was near the back of the crowd with the former NBA MVP during the always-popular bouquet toss and, after a few deflections, the flowers hit the floor and landed at her for the easy scoop. 

Speights proceeded to hug Harden in excitement, but the L.A. Clippers star stood stiff with a near-vacant look of disbelief. 

Commenters on social media now have been having a lot of laughs at Harden’s expense. 

“Bro is avoiding a ring at ALL cost,” one user replied, referencing Harden’s penchant for coming up short in the playoffs. 

“Bro’s like, ‘she’s gonna get a ring before me,’” another wrote. 

“He finna (about to) hit her with the cleanest step back right out of her life lol,” one user wrote on Instagram. 

“He said if ‘I ain’t getting a ring you ain’t either,’” one person wrote while another commented: “He can’t commit to a team, ain’t no way he committed to her.” 

During his NBA career, Harden has famously been quick to demand trades from teams where the situation wasn’t up to his liking and has been criticized for giving up on losing situations to chase rings.

Now, he might’ve found himself in a situation where he’ll be the one giving a ring out. 

Harden and Speights made their romance Instagram official in May, with the 10-time all-star sharing a selfie of her and a heart emoji. She posted a snap of Harden with the caption “Uno.” 

Playing alongside fellow stars Paul George and Kawhi Leonard with the Clippers this season, Harden averaged 16.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 8.5 assists. However, after earning the fourth seed in the Western Conference, the Clippers were eliminated in the first round by the Dallas Mavericks.

After beginning his career with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Harden has played for the Houston Rockets, Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers.
