James Harden’s going to take things slow with Khloe Kardashian! She said ‘sweet words’ about him in a new interview, but despite that, the NBA star wants to wait and see where things are heading before he makes any decisions. HollywoodLife.com has all the EXCLUSIVE details!
James Harden seems to be playing hard to get! The 26-year-old is grateful that Khloe Kardashian, 31, said “sweet words” about him in her People interview.

We’re told Khloe’s sentiments made James’ day, but don’t expect him to pour a lot of energy into trying to win her back. “James really appreciates Khloe’s sweet and kind words,” a friend of James’ told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Having said that, James has a lot on his plate right now,” the pal continued. “He’s looking for a NBA Championship! The only fighting he’s going to engage in is on the basketball court.” Khloe admitted Oct. 28 that James has “been great with me,” as she took a step back from their romance to support ailing husband Lamar Odom, 35.
At some point, the reality TV star has to make a decision on which man she truly wants to be with. As TMZ reported, she put her relationship with James on hold the minute she learned Lamar was in trouble and fighting for his life. And as HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Khloe can’t make up her mind when it comes to her current husband, as well as her boyfriend.
“Khloe is completely conflicted,” a second source revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “She loves [Lamar] and thought it was the right decision to break it off with James. A life romantically with Lamar is going to be difficult and she doesn’t know if she wants to live that life. Her mind is all over the place right now! She knows that she has lost a lot of her freedom and she doesn’t know if she likes that or not.”
HollywoodLifers, do you think Khloe will be with James if Lamar fully recovers?
