Harden suffered an injury in the playoff prior to Kyrie going down. Despite not being at full health, he suited up and played the final few games against Milwaukee. He even hit some crucial buckets for them. However, it was evident that he couldn’t play at his best.

Harden has solidified himself as one of the most talented scorers. Once joining the Nets, he even showcased his playmaking ability. While he is a great scorer, it doesn’t come without putting in work every day. And Harden is well aware of that.

Recently, the ‘Beard’ put out his workout video, and he is looking crafty. He is practicing his dribble moves and looking good on his feet. In addition, his layup package is as clean as anyone’s in the league. He was also practicing his famous step back and other unique game moves to add to his arsenal

Looking at the way he is moving, it is only good news for all the Brooklyn fanatics. However, one major concern still exists. Kyrie is yet to take the vaccine, and the league is quite strict when it comes to vaccine mandates. Hence, if he fails to take the vaccine, he won’t be able to participate in any home games. So the Nets will have to go 41 games without KAI in the upcoming season.

On the brighter side of things, Harden and KD will definitely be ready to go. After last season, their only goal will be to lift the Larry O’Brien. If they do, it will be Harden’s first-ever NBA championship, and what better way to do it but in a comeback season.
