January 17, 2021 5:15 am

James Harden is finally making his much awaited debut for the Brooklyn Nets tonight. After spending 8 years with the Houston Rockets, Harden finally decided it was time to move onto the next chapter of his career. While Harden has been an amazing player for the Rockets, he didn’t end up on the best terms.

This season, Harden looked out of shape and was struggling to find his rhythm on the basketball court. In fact, many fans trolled the ‘Beard’ for his supposedly overweight physique. But it appears as if in less than a week, Harden is back into in-game shape.

James looks completely different from the last time he was on the court. Needless to say, NBA fans reacted to the former MVP’s drastic physique change on Twitter.

Looking at Harden’s sudden change, the biggest question remains: did James Harden deliberately force his way out of Houston? Some fans believe that Harden was wearing a body suit in the last few weeks.

Whatever be the case, the ‘Beard’ looks ready to make a push for the NBA championship this season.

Can the Big 3 of Brooklyn Nets win an NBA championship this season?

On paper, the Brooklyn Nets appear to be one of the best teams in the league, if not the best. The Nets have an elite roster this season, spearheaded by Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden.

But, it could all go down south for Brooklyn. They do have 3 of the best players in the league, but can they coexist together? KD has proved that he can adjust to playing with two other superstars, when he was a member of the GSW.

Additionally, Durant doesn’t need the ball in his hands all the time to make things happen. However, both Kyrie and Harden are ball dominant players. They need to keep possession for an elongated period of time to make an impact on the game.

What are your thoughts on the league’s latest Big 3? Can they win their first championship together this season? Let us know your views in the comments section below.
