James Harden, Houston hero and savior, can’t be tamed.

However, one Reddit user may have just discovered his potential kryptonite.

As posted yesterday by BeardHarden under the title, “Proving James Harden’s skills are proportional to his beard size:”

Someone pass BeerHarden the Nobel prize for this discovery.

If Houstonians have any sense, they’ll pass a Sleeping Beauty-style ordinance banning shavers to protect the city’s most-prized asset and his clearly magical facial follicles, because Harden is having one of his best seasons to date – he’s third in the league for points per game at 29.2, leading in assists at 11.3 and he’s the first player to hit multiple 50-point triple doubles in a season. Not to mention up for MVP this weekend at the All Star Game.

Show off. And how.  Of course, if he doesn’t win MVP, there’s always the MVB – for beard!

Mr. Harden: please keep doing what you’re doing, including any Kardashians that may still be making an appearance. Khloé: Clear Lake is just like Calabasas (lolz). Come on down, girl, you’ll be right at home!

They say if you keep a goldfish in a small environment, it will only grow to a certain size, but beyond the fishbowl, goldfish can grow to “double, triple, or even quadruple their size.

There’s an allegory for Harden’s beard and his player potential in there somewhere.

Go Rockets.  #clutchcity
