NBA teams will often show support of their players. That’s very normal and how it should be. The Rockets chose a rather odd way to support James Harden.
Houston Rockets’ All-Star guard James Harden is having a fantastic season. He is averaging 27 points, 7 assists, 5.8 rebounds, and 1.9 steals per game. Thanks to these incredible numbers, Harden is a top candidate for the MVP this season.
With Dwight Howard missing so much time and Harden keeping Houston high up in the playoff race (3rd seed in the West), the Rockets have to try to show as much support for him as possible.
Harden is known across the league for his beard, so Rockets’ dancers decided to pay tribute to him by rocking beards of their own.
The thought is what counts here, but there is no denying that what The Cauldron is saying is true. This is a very odd and unattractive look for these (usually) beautiful dancers.
You have to give them props, though, as the only other way to really tribute the Rockets’ players are headbands perhaps, as there are more guys on that team that wear headbands compared to most other teams.
For Harden, though, the beard is really the only way to go.
