Harden had a trimmed beard during his two seasons in college at Arizona State from 2007-2009, and then he began growing it out while he was with the Oklahoma City Thunder. The beard has been featured in fruit displays and on buildings. It’s gotten so out of hand that even Harden’s mother wants him to cut it. But the beard remains and it has become an identifiable feature. Someone even put together the above timeline of his beard and the thread became popular on Reddit Monday. I bet most people can’t even remember what Harden looked like before the beard.
