Is James Harden the team's most popular player?
The Oklahoman Blog:
Is Harden the most beloved Thunder player? Seems like a silly question seeing as how there’s a guy named Kevin Durant and another guy named Russell Westbrook on this team. But think about the ovations those that pack the Peake have given Harden lately. The guy is absolutely adored. And he’s got the whole beard thing working for him, which has fans showing up with phony replicas. Tonight, the cheers could have blown the roof off the place both when he was presented the Sixth Man of the Year trophy just before tip-off and when he checked in for the first time to a standing ovation.
