Oklahoma City Thunder fans learned early on in James Harden's career to fear the beard. It appears that the rest of the league's fans are on notice now. Harden had a monster game his first time out in a Rockets jersey, dropping 37 points and 12 assists on the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night. For his next act, Harden -- and his tremendous beard -- will look to continue the fun into a month known for its love affair with facial hair. The NESN Nation Minute has that and more, including some predictions for the future of MLB managing and some analysis of the NFL's trade deadline. Check it out in the above video.
