The Houston Rockets are at home tonight as they’ll be welcoming in the Indiana Pacers for a huge match up on national television on ESPN, although James Harden showed up dressed not for a showdown with one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference, rather he showed up more prepared to win the bull riding competition.

ESPN, prior to the game getting underway, captured this wonderful shot of Harden entering the arena dressed like he’s trying to reprise John Travolta’s role in “Urban Cowboy,” and it’s just the absolute greatest.

Just an amazing shot, of an even more amazing human being. What’s best is how the shot starts right at the boots and then gives you the entire view of the incredible ensemble.
