James Harden’s Eye Injury Inspired A Relatable Meme For Marijuana Users

James Harden is one of the best basketball players alive right now. But as we learned with Michael Jordan and the crying MJ meme, this does not exclude the fearsome baller from becoming fodder for internet humor.

Harden suffered an eye injury during Houston’s Game 2 against the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference Semifinals. The injury forced him to temporarily leave the game, and when he returned, he was often see blinking, rubbing his eyes, struggling to see properly.

His eyes were abnormally bloodshot and watery as a result. This inspired many internet users to transform Harden’s misery into an innocuous meme about being too high in social situations.

But for some, Harden didn’t remind them of being accidentally too stoned. Instead, he resembled Childish Gambino in his “This Is America” video.

Considering Childish Gambino, a.k.a. Donald Glover, is a known marijuana fan, we believe the joke of being too high applies here, too.
