Houston Rockets superstar James Harden capped off a remarkable 2017/18 NBA season, helping carry his team to a franchise-high 65 wins with an impressive 30.4 points per game average, by earning his very first MVP award. Beating out fellow candidates LeBron James and Anthony Davis, many professional analysts and novice spectators alike had a tight two-man race between the King and Beard — adidas Basketball, however, was not one of them. Ultimately confident in its star hoops ambassador, the Three Stripes brand unveiled an MVP pack, consisting of the Harden Vol. 2, Harden Vol. 2 LS & Harden BTE X dedicated to Harden prior to last night’s official crowning.

And now, adidas looks to praise the All-Star once more through a short film. “IMMA BE A STAR” revolves around a letter James wrote to his mom as a youngster growing up. Proud as any mother can be, Harden’s mother narrates the piece, letting the world in on her son’s epic battle to reach the top.
