With only four weeks left in the NBA season, the contenders are separating from the pretenders. The Chicago Bulls and Miami Heat look ready to battle for the Eastern Conference. Best in the West are GoS faves Oklahoma City (OKC) Thunder with a few other battle-tested teams in the mix: the Lakers, Mavs and Spurs.
OKC is led by the thunder of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook but James Harden (far right both photos below) has quickly become the lightning. The NBA’s most dynamic sixth man is vital to OKC’s success on the court, while he oozes style and swagger off of it. Oh look it’s Kate Upton again!
Harden commands our respect with the best beard and haircut in sports, bar none. Now add being one of the best-dressed athletes around and it’s clear the L.A.-born Harden is ready for the spotlight.
He’s even down with The Hunger Games. James Harden gets the GoS district salute.
