On January 14, 2021, the NBA landscape changed with the Brooklyn Nets acquiring James Harden in a multi-team trade. Two days later, the Beard debuted for his new squad with a big grin on his face.
Prior to the trade, James was struggling with multiple games scoring less than 20 points. With a renewed energy, Harden was dropping dimes, grabbing boards, and hitting his signature stepback. The damage: 32 points, 12 rebounds, 14 assists and the W. James became the first player to drop a 30-point triple double in any team debut.
The sneakers the Beard laced up for this game was the adidas Harden Vol. 5. This sneaker features the debut of the Futurenatural fit system, which allows athletes to move freely in any direction. Springy LIGHTSTRIKE cushioning combines with a soft Boost sockliner for maximum comfort on the court.
