James Harden Brings Beard to Candlestick

Posted Sep 9, 2013

NBA All-Star guard James Harden of the Houston Rockets checked out Sunday's 49ers win over the Green Bay Packers.

The most famous beard in professional sports was in the house Sunday at Candlestick Park.

No, it wasn't former San Francisco Giants pitcher Brian Wilson. It was none other than James Harden, a true member of the 49ers Faithful.

The All-Star guard of the Houston Rockets was full on representing his beloved football team on Sunday. The NBA superstar was hyped to watch San Francisco’s 34-28 Week 1 victory of the Green Bay Packers.

Harden, dressed in a red 49ers snap-back cap, gray 49ers t-shirt with red Jordan IV retro kicks to match, met Jim Harbaugh pregame and chatted with several members of the team, including All-Pro linebacker NaVorro Bowman.

With five minutes left in the game, Harden was thoroughly into the game’s key moments. When Anquan Boldin caught a 15-yard pass on a fourth-down conversion, Harden jumped up and down as if he hit a deep three-point basket in one of his games.

Harden clapped loudly when the 49ers forced a three-and-out with a three-point lead in the fourth quarter. He even motioned to the crowd to make more noise when Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay’s offense was on the field.

There's no doubt, Harden was into the game.

After the San Francisco's victory, Harden shared his appreciation of the 49ers organization welcoming him into Candlestick Park
