James Harden posts selfie while stuck in elevator
Sunday February 15th, 2015

​James Harden has some pretty stiff competition in Saturday's three-point contest, he's going to need to be mentally prepared if he wants to win. It might be a little tough for him to get into the right frame of mind while stranded in an elevator. 

Harden was stuck in an elevator on the way to the event, but luckily he had an internet connection and was able to post a selfie to Instagram.

Eventually, Harden was freed and got to Barclays Center with plenty of time to spare.

Harden can hit shots from just about anywhere, but he's never nailed one from an elevator.
