‘Look at his calves…’: James Harden breaks the internet with his latest photo showing he’s been working on himself


James Harden recently made headlines for taking a $14 million pay cut to allow the Philadelphia 76ers to expand their roster. The magnificent gesture garnered a lot of respect from the NBA community and showed the Sixers star’s dedication to winning a championship. Meanwhile, James Harden has once again proven his determination to make an NBA comeback after this recent photo of him went viral on the internet.

Over the past few years, James Harden has received a lot of criticism for his physique. In fact, his flawed work ethic has been the talk of the town ever since he allegedly gained weight to force a trade out of Houston. Similar allegations emerged after he left Brooklyn after the whole Kyrie Irving ordeal.

Moreover, his lackluster performance in this year’s playoffs only emboldened his critics. In fact, some analysts predicted that the 2018 MVP left behind the best days of his career. However, Harden seems to have worked this summer to refute his detractors.

James Harden surprises NBA fans with this recent photo

James Harden was the most blamed by fans and the media after the 76ers exited early in this year’s playoffs. The NBA community held recent 10-time All-Star fights with the scoreline responsible for Philly’s failure.

Incidentally, Harden averaged 18.6 points, 8.6 assists, and 5.7 rebounds in the 2022 playoffs. A decent performance for an All-Star caliber player; but far from its previous performances.

Ultimately, Harden’s impact on the court diminished steadily after suffering a Grade 2 hamstring strain in the 2021 Eastern Conference Semifinals. Since then, he has struggled to overtake the defenders and attack the painting.

However, the 32-year-old guard is determined to make a comeback in the upcoming season. In fact, this recent photo of Harden shows significant progress in terms of fitness.

Meanwhile, NBA fans had a lot to say after his photo went viral on the internet. Here are the best reactions.
