Harden, who is one of the highest-paid athletes, spent $1 million in one night on a strip club. After that night, the James Harden jersey was retired at the strip club. According to the podcast, the James Harden jersey was just hanging 'from the top'. The only reason it was done was because the employees were informed of Harden's expenditure. Back then, the staff gave him a retired jersey in return for all the money he was spending. The club where Harden frequented is called 'Dreamshouston'. In 2012, a dancer had even thanked James for his contribution via her Instagram account.
