Congratulations Oklahoma City Thunder, you are in the NBA playoffs for the first time since moving from Seattle. You now have the chance to capture an NBA title.

It is a well-deserved march to the NBA Finals, thanks in large part to the play of James Harden.

The reigning Sixth Man of the Year made some clutch shots versus the Spurs in the Western Conference Finals, and steadied OKC's bench attack en route to a 4-2 series win. Of course, Harden is not just known for his stellar play for OKC, there's also the beard.

You know that beard by now don't you? The thick facial hair has been a huge hit among OKC fans, that has some fans wearing its likeness on their own grills as they cheer on their Thunder.

And other fans taking it even further.

Take this local OKC business that took Harden's beard to new heights! How about a huge mock-up of Harden's famous beard draped across the entrance (h/t Project Spurs).

OK I got to admit, this is pretty creative but I am still waiting to see which OKC business will put nerdy looking eye glasses across their building as Russell Westbrook wears during press conferences. Or how about a huge backpack like Kevin Durant wears?
