Video: James Harden’s funny interview on Pete Holmes show

When interviewing a person whose profession you know little about, it helps if the interviewee is laid back. Luckily for late-night talk show host Pete Holmes, James Harden is a cool dude.

Holmes admittedly knows little about the NBA – he’s not really a sports guy – but that didn’t stop him from chopping it up with the Rockets superstar. The interview runs from hilarious to awkward to inane.

Some of the questions Holmes asks relate to trash talk, dunking on people, and manscaping habits. Kudos to James Harden for playing a good straight man.

Later, Holmes returned the favor by visiting Harden’s basketball camp. Holmes wasn’t lying: he really isn’t a sports guy.
