James Harden recently sat down with Hannah Storm to discuss all sorts of topics including how much it would cost for him to shave his beard and it appears that he would consider it for around $10 million.
If you go to a Houston Rockets ball game, you will notice the fans clamouring with 'Fear the Beard' signs all around the arena, it is now Harden's trademark and will take a lot of money for him to alter his identity.
The conversation Harden had with Storm featured a lot of money centric topics, this also included the transaction that saw Harden leave the team who drafted him, the Oklahoma City Thunder, to join the Houston Rockets.
Harden confessed that he would still be playing for the Thunder right now if money wasn't a factor, if the 5-year, $80 million extension he signed with Houston wasn't a factor he'd still be in Oklahoma City.
This is how the conversation unfolded, Storm asked: "If money wasn’t in the equation, do you think you’d still be there?", Harden responded: "Definitely. Definitely, no question."
The shooting guard was then asked how he felt when making the decision to leave OKC: "Nervous … mixed emotions … not knowing what to do,” Harden said. “It was tough. I felt like I already made a sacrifice as far as coming off the bench, doing whatever it takes to help the team. They weren’t willing to help me.”
Now he is trying to win championships with Houston and may possibly face his old team once more deep into the Western Conference playoffs.
