Khloe Kardashian, James Harden play together on the 4th -- and dating rumors fly

If being photographed in the same place at the same time means two people are dating, then Khloe Kardashian and NBA star James Harden are "dating."

Or -- maybe they were just in the same place at the same time several times over the holiday weekend.

"They were at the beach club ... snacking on chicken fingers and fries, salads and fruit," a source told E! News, describing the scene at the Encore Beach Club at the Wynn Las Vegas on Saturday.

Chicken fingers! They had chicken fingers together! And don't even get us started on the fries...

TMZ on Monday presented a photo of the two standing close and making contact at the Encore pool, which it touted as "proof" the two are "full-on dating." That after posting snaps Sunday showing Kardashian, 31, and the 25-year-old Houston Rockets star leaving a restaurant inside the Wynn and then attending a Chris Brown performance -- also in the vicinity of one another -- at Drai's nightclub in the Cromwell hotel and casino.

"They were bouncing around to all their friends honestly," another pool-party source told E! News about their daytime activities, noting that they sat next to each other and talked, but seemed to be more about having fun. Mrs. Lamar Odom is, incidentally, still not divorced from Mr. Lamar Odom, despite getting that ball rolling way back in December 2013.

Kardashian was also photographed at the pool event with Rumer Willis. Hmm -- what should we make of that?
