This is what James Harden’s mom wants to see (http://blogs.thescore.com/tbj/2012/03/16/james-hardens-mom-wants-him-to-shave-his-beard/) — a plain-faced James, looking 16 all over again. Not like he’s the NBA’s biggest hipster (http://blogs.thescore.com/tbj/2011/11/11/tbj-tour-video-whos-the-nbas-biggest-hipster/). Not like Mr. T. (http://blogs.thescore.com/tbj/2011/03/31/james-harden-%E2%80%98mathematicsized%E2%80%99/) Not like he is trying to figure out ways to make his head appear as tall as possible. Just James, being a cute young man with a face you can see.
No offense to Momma Harden, but I think I speak for everyone when I say she’s wrong about this one. Keep the beard, James. Forever.

:laugh:

I always wondered if there was an enforced hygiene policy in the NBA

carmelo looks better without the braids.
kobe looked better with a fro.
iverson looks better with braids
I wonder what Varejao would look like with the hair?
Or Baron Davis without the beard?
Nash looked like a cancer patient with short hair.

cant wait to see what lebron will look like when he finally gives up the hairloss battle and shaves his head.

He's got a very long face...the beard helps. I think it's dope on him.

He was clean shaved in his early ASU days...

Kobe most definitely looked better with the fro.

Maybe he should at least think of trimming that thing.

Here he is in 2009:

I think a trim is needed if he wants to reach the finely manicured greatness of Baron

He will trim it once he signs with the Celtics for the full max!

He can't shave it. Underneath his beard is not a face, but another arm with which he can shoot the ball with perfection

He's the Brian Wilson of Basketball, he needs the beard to be badass.

I see you are using the first time to jail plan. When you crap your pants and hope no one rapes you.

That's not a beard. That looks like someone glued pubes to his face. he needs to groom it so it looks like Baron's.

i remember durant saying in espn the mag that if harden shaved his beard, he wouldn't get any ladies, so there's that...

How do you groom a beard when it gets that big? I've been trying to find ways and it seems that combing it by itself doesn't work.

JasonJohnHorn

That's why he grew the beard, so teammates could tell them apart.

Seriously though, its a proven fact that Harden's FG% goes up the longer his beard is.

Has his game gone down as his beard got longer? No? Then let it grown till it connects to his chest hair for all I care.

He should lose the mohawk keep the beard and get a very high flat top. And I heard harden say in an interview that he has a beard because he looks like a boy otherwise.

he should cut it. he looks hilarious w/o it.

He should take that Monster out of his face and burn it! Awesome Beards can make you dangerously good, just ask my boy Brian Wilson.

I do not care about james's beard what so ever.

I actually find it weird people are digging up a pic of a 16 yr old and discussing how good he looks like.... kinda gay

So having a beard and wearing non-prescription glasses makes you a hipster? It makes you look like a clown. None of these clowns are hipsters. Hipsters are anti-conforming and anti-capitalists. These bums would be flipping burgers if they weren't born with athleticism.

That can be said for the majority of the league, so my question is why do you watch and why do you come on here to post if you have such a problem with them.

I find this amusing. The beard is hip. Also calling these guys would be bums if it weren't for their athleticism. That's like saying Bill Gates and Steve Jobs would be bums if they didn't put their innovation and intelligence to work. These guys are elite at what they do no matter where they stand in the NBA, while we're here critiquing them on a sports forum. :laugh2:

You obviously have no idea what a 'hipster' is? :facepalm: It's getting embarrassing, man.

Don't really care because the beard is awesome and I won't conform to your definition of what that word means. ;)
