James Harden may be known as “the Beard” or Chef Harden, but his fans sure do go the extra mile to prove their loyalty!

The Houston Rockets may be having a tough season on the court, but their leader James Harden continues to have a stellar personal year. Going back to the summer he signed a lucrative $200 million dollar endorsement deal with adidas ensuring his arrival as one of the National Basketball Associations most popular players.

Game in and game out you’ll see fans in the stands sporting his jerseys or clad in faux beards as they showcase their loyalty. At every home game (and even some road games) you can spot fans standing in the crowd making the stirring motion as if they are mixing cake batter to demonstrate their acknowledgement of his chef skills.

But recently a fan went above and beyond to honor his favorite player:

As you can see the artwork isn’t just a close simulation of what Harden looks like, it’s literally been taken from an in game photo.
