JamesHardenHakaReaction

 

James Harden is likely as much a fan of rugby as he is playing defense in the NBA.  That explains his blank stare reaction to the New Zealand pre-game haka dance at the 2014 FIBA Basketball World Cup.  While the ritual has been a part of the All-Blacks’ rugby squad for over 100 years, Harden and other Team USA members had no clue what was going on.  Check out the video of the haka dance after the jump:

Team USA would roll to a 27 point victory over New Zealand, 98-71.
