James Harden Sr. is the father of James Harden

James real name James Edward Harden Jr. serves as a professional basketball player of the National Basketball Association team named Brooklyn Nets.

James Sr.'s relationship with family isn't good after marriage?

James Harden Sr. had tied the knot with the lady named Monja Willis.

As he was engaged in the role of US Navy before, the man later got involved in d*ugs. 

Due to this involvement, he was going around the prison resulting in less time for his family. 

James and his son's relationship aren't that great, which showed up during his games in the school. 

It is stated that junior James refused to mention the word Jr. while writing his name at that moment in school.  

His wife had raised their kids, portraying the role of both

As we know, James wasn't around their kids while growing up, so his spouse Monja had portrayed the roles of both parents. 

Even though the lady was working at AT&T, she always made sure to be with her kids. 

Despite the absence of his father, his mother had always attended James's games. 

Monja mentioned that involving her kids in the games was the solution for her to keep them away from the obstacles and be active even though the lady herself doesn't have any interest in the sports.

One of their children had bought a new home for mother Monja

His spouse Monja had three children altogether where it's said that Akili Roberson is the half-sibling of player James and a daughter named Arnique Jelks, James being her third one. 

The player had bought a new house for his mother in Houston, just 20 minutes from his location. 

We cannot deny that the mother-son shares the strongest bond, but their connection became deeper after her retirement in 2009.

Life of James's better half after the wedding

Hats off to his better half who have remained strong even after not so good relation with husband James Sr

Lady have taught their kids to stand on their legs resulting in the Akili; the oldest one among all created a huge name as quarterback on the gridiron and was involved in Arena Football League.

James Jr. is a well-known player worldwide where people recognized him as a great scorer and the outstanding shooting guard of the NBA. 

Lastly, daughter Arnique was neither involved in football nor basketball like her brothers but became a cheerleader. 

Moreover, Monja had always been proud of her for following her dreams for years. 

A close talk of NBA player James Harden

All know James's professional career success but what his brother Akili had to say about young James?

His brother had mentioned that he always held the basketball in his hand back in the old days as he performed some tasks. 

Seeing this, he often used to ask James about the number of players in the NBA. 

The fun fact that can never be forgotten is that the player, when young (around ninth grade), had signed the blank paper and gave it to his mother and he told her to keep the paper safe because he will be the star in the future.
