James Harden is a basketball player competing at the 2012 London Summer Olympics for the USA.

James Harden makes his Olympic debut in London, where the U.S. men look to defend the gold medal they won in 2008. It will also mark his first appearance for Team USA, as he and Anthony Davis are the only 2012 team members not to have previously competed for the national team. Neither was among the first 20 finalists chosen for the team in January, but following a rash of injuries to other players in the pool, Harden and Davis were added as finalists in May. In July, Harden was chosen for the original 12-man Olympic roster while Davis was later added as an injury replacement.

Of the 220 games he's played, he's been a starter for only seven, but that's a role in which he's flourished. He was named the 2011-12 NBA Sixth Man of the Year. After his first season, Harden was chosen for the All-Rookie Second Team. The Thunder has advanced to the playoffs each of his three seasons, and also features two of Harden's Olympic teammates: Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook.
