The Houston Rockets are putting a team around James Harden that can compete for a championship, but it will ultimately be up to the superstar to lead his squad to the promised land.
Clearly, he’s willing to put in the work, in the gym if nothing else.
Harden wanted to give his fans a little bit of excitement while he was in China this week. This picture certainly did the job.
He also landed the cover of “NBA Live 18,” though his jacked physique is not as noticeable on that cover as it is on his personal Instagram.
There is such a thing as working out too hard, as that has fouled some athletes in the past. Basketball players want to be strong — especially with Harden’s aggressive style — but they also have to be nimble and mobile.
It’s unclear if Harden has hit that limit yet, but he’s definitely looking swole.
