NBA fans got to see James Harden in a Brooklyn Nets uniform for the first time Saturday.
And the seven-time All-NBA selection looks, well, different.
Check it out:
Harden, you may remember, had quite the ending to his Houston Rockets tenure before he landed with the Nets as the centerpiece of a blockbuster trade earlier this week.
Among the many aspects, like calling out the franchise after his last game in Houston, was Harden’s overall appearance. Harden, as many around the league noted, seemed to let himself get out of shape entering the 2020 season. Some not-so-appealing photos surfaced within the last few weeks, but Harden looked nothing like said photos ahead of his Nets debut Saturday.
It caused Twitter to have quite the reaction:
Harden and the 7-6 Nets will take the floor Saturday against the Orlando Magic, and NBA fans will be able to see how the newest Brooklyn star fits with fellow former NBA MVP Kevin Durant… among other things.
