With Game 1 of the NBA Finals beginning Tuesday night, James Harden Mania is running wild like Hulkamania. As evidenced by the manner in which he has been embraced by not only the resident Thunder fans of Oklahoma City (bearded buildings, anyone?), but to Thunder fans everywhere. James Harden cakes, comic strips, you name it, people love the bearded basketballer, and the way he has converted a sixth man role on the Thunder into becoming the key third cog of the squad’s own version of the “Big 3,” Harden is a force that cannot be ignored, both on the court and off it.
Now comes this photo documenting some fellow’s relatively large James Harden arm tattoo. At the moment, not many details are available about the guy or the tattoo — even the legitimacy of the ink should be called into question at this point — but if it is in fact the real deal, this guy took James Harden Mania to another level. Fear the Beard, indeed.
And to give credit where credit is due, the artistry behind the creation of that tattoo is indeed impressive. Well done.
