Houston Rockets MVP James Harden is the featured subject in a new GQ interview. He discusses everything from A to Z, and unsurprisingly, the topic of his beard came up, and in relation to women. 

James talks about being insecure about going out with the ladies, in fear of having some food in his beard while he eats. He fears his own beard.

He talks about adult stuff now, like the perils of such a prodigious beard for his bachelor life. “I get food in this shit all the time,” he says. “Like, all the time. If it’s people that I don’t know, I won’t eat around ’em. 

When I’m, like, going on blind dates, I’ll wait till I get around people I actually am comfortable around, because then they’ll tell me I have stuff in my beard. It kinda comes with it. If you wanna look as good as I do.”

I actually don’t process this confession about his beard until much later, because I’m so thrown by the thought of James Harden going on a blind date.

Wait, you just said “going on blind dates.” You don’t really go on blind dates, do you? It’d only be blind for you—everybody knows what you look like.

“You know what I mean.”

Not really. What kind of dates do you go on?

“I don’t know—first, second, third time hangin’ out with somebody. Not random. Just a dinner or something.”

Let’s be honest, James goes to the clubs, meets plenty of girls. Last week we posted about Harden’s Main Chick, and I’m pretty sure he didn’t meet her on a blind date. Harden is savage when it comes to the ladies.
