The NBA lost one of its great beards a couple weeks ago when Reggie Evans shaved his off, and Pau Gasol shaved his for charity after 9 years. James Harden still stands atop the NBA's Mount Olympus of Beards. The Beard was asked by TMZ if he would consider shaving the beard off for money. Harden said he would consider doing it for charity, and then was asked if $80,000 would be enough to which he said "hell no."
Last bit of the interview had a funny exchange as the camerman asked what the Rockets guard thought of his high player rating on NBA 2K14, and if he agreed with it. The Compton native said he didn't agree with it, but he will work as hard as he can to get as good as the player in the game.
