With a Beard that’s become part and parcel of his persona and a laid-back demeanor, which can unfortunately extend to his defense, it’s safe to say James Harden is a pretty cool guy. Perhaps that’s why he struggled to mimic Alfonso Ribeiro — aka Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air who recently tried to teach James his famed “Carlton Dance.”

Here’s how Ribeiro made it famous on the popular sitcom, primarily by sashaying to Tom Jones‘ “It’s Not Unusual.”
Can you do the Carlton dance?
