The Milwaukee Bucks’ Brandon Jennings and the Houston Rockets’ James Harden were named Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively.
Jennings guided the Bucks to a 2-0 record to start the season, a first for the team since the 2005-06 campaign. Jennings led the league in assists (13.0 apg) and paced the conference in steals (4.0 spg), while finishing third on the team in scoring (17.0 ppg). He recorded point/assist double-doubles in consecutive games for the second time in his career, hitting a game-winning three-pointer against the Cleveland Cavaliers on November 3. His 13 assists in each game tied his career high.
Harden, fresh off a trade from Oklahoma City, led Houston to a 2-1 mark to open the season while pacing the league in scoring (35.3 ppg). In his debut as a Rocket, Harden scored 37 points, dished out 12 assists, grabbed six rebounds, and collected four steals at Detroit on Oct. 31.

Jim RacaltoI am at a serious loss for words for a couple reasons. First, I know James Harden is red hot right now for his new team the Houston Rockets, but a haircut this early? They aren’t in the Finals yet, chief. Secondly, whoever did this cut must have been on glue. Check out this ridiculous and hilariously bad hair piece; a tribute to James “The Beard” Harden: Thanks...

James Harden was just traded to Houston Rockets no more than a week ago…and subsequently signed an $80 Million Dollar extension to remain with the Houston Rockets for the long haul — Now Harden isn’t only crushing it on the court, he’s also performing very strong off of it. Check out the tweet above, looks like the Beard is lining Houston’s...
This haircut of a member of the Red Rowdies (a group of Houston Rockets hardcore fans) is extremely frightening and wonderful. Check out the super fan’s haircut which is one of the best tributes to James Harden that you will most likely ever see. I am a bit confused as to the interesting changes that the barber made to Harden’s mug, but when all is said and done the beard will...

HOUSTON So there is this guy, James Harden, and he has a long beard and a well-constructed Mohawk, but he does not speak like a guy with a long beard and a Mohawk, which is to say he is not trying to play some kind of character.
He doesn't speak much, really. Well, not much more than he has to, although now that he's the star of the Houston Rockets, he has to speak a lot...

Who said James Harden couldn’t be an alpha dog? Since his trade to the Houston Rockets, Harden has quickly cemented himself as one of the superstars in the league.
There were many out there who questioned whether or not the Oklahoma City Thunder were doing...
The Rockets had been pushing to complete the trade for James Harden by Friday, but the Thunder wanted to present a final offer to Harden with a 60-minute window.
This game looked like it was going to overtime. Kyrie Irving’s layup tied the game with 0.7 seconds left but Brandon Jennings nailed a 28 footer as time expired. This was a back-and-forth affair. The Cavs built an early lead, then blew it. The Bucks had a lead for awhile, but the Cavs fought back. There’s a few takaways from this game: 1) Kyrie Irving is REALLY good. 2) So is...
