Houston Rockets analyst Matt Bullard has taken notice of James Harden’s slim figure and offered a detailed explanation of how it’ll help Harden’s game.

To say that Houston Rockets superstar James Harden has remained in tip-top shape during the NBA’s hiatus would be a major understatement. The Beard has used the time away from NBA action to get himself in better physical condition than he was in before the league-wide suspension was issued, as he’s lost a considerable amount of weight.

Rockets fans instantly became excited upon seeing the photos of the skinny version of Harden, and it’s easy to understand why. Harden has reached heights and levels that Oklahoma City Thunder GM Sam Presti couldn’t have imagined upon trading him back in 2012, all while being at a much thicker build, so one can just imagine how much better Harden will be at a slimmer size.

Sharpe felt that since Harden led the league in scoring in three consecutive seasons at a heavier frame, it didn’t make sense for Harden to change his physique.
