James Harden is now in the NFL.
Well, his name is, at least.
Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Derek Carr shouted “JAMES HARDEN” as an audible during their 35-31 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on “Sunday Night Football.”
With no fans in the stadium, NBC’s microphones picked up the reference to the NBA star clearly on the broadcast.
The play prompted plenty of jokes on Twitter:
gotta be glad that JAMES HARDEN is an offensive audible and not a defensive playcall. pic.twitter.com/PZIPzok3rs— Rodger Sherman (@rodger) November 23, 2020

That play certainly didn’t dribble long enough to have a “James Harden” audible.— Ryan Clark (@Realrclark25) November 23, 2020
Derek Carr yells the audible “James Harden” and they proceed to run Iso. That’s good stuff.— Matthew Jorgensen (@CoachJorgyBP) November 23, 2020
Derek Carr just yelled out “James Harden” on an audible to a “dive” play… 🤔 😂 #ChiefsRaiders— Live hard (@Live_hard_now) November 23, 2020
I knew the Raiders were blowing the lead in a big game once Derek Carr used “James Harden” as an audible.— Sean Keane (@seankeane) November 23, 2020
