Well, if you thought that was brutal, the social media slander over James Harden's new Adidas signature shoes might be worse.
If you remember, the Beard inked a blockbuster 13-year, $200 million deal with Adidas last summer, but the triple black colorway of his first sneakers were rejected with great disdain Tuesday, continuing into today.
Just look at some of the ruthless tweets the Houston Rockets' All-Star's kicks generated.
And perhaps the most-stinging reaction of them all?
Ouch! That had to hurt.
All of a sudden, Chef Curry and Under Armour aren't feeling so bad anymore.
Harden's new sneakers are slated for a December release.
