Sep 28th, 2022

Sixers guard James Harden opens up on his prolonged hamstring injury and working on his body over the recent off-season.

In what many believed, The Beards prime was over way before expected, with him struggling from the field. Harden was no more the scoring beast from Houston, shifting more towards the role of a facilitator. What made matters worse was his performance in the 2022 playoffs.

Looking to get rid of his choker tag, Hardens been grinding in the gym during the off-season, improving his conditioning. The three-time scoring champion, who recently took a $15 million pay cut, aims to make a run for the championship alongside the seven-foot Joel Embiid.

Having dealt with a career-threatening injury, Harden shared an insight into his rehab time, revealing the dark times during the process.

There is no doubt that Harden is a future first-ballot Hall of Famer. However, the absence of a championship ring on his resume continues to bother him. The last two years havent been easy for the ten-time All-Star dealing with endless scrutiny as he jumped from one team to another.

The former Rockets superstars nagging hamstring injury made him seem sluggish on the court, hampering his performances in the last back-to-back playoffs. Currently, in great shape, Harden opened up on his fitness regime in a conversation with NBCs Noah Levick.

At this point, its dieting, its proper rest, and then gaining more muscle mass, which Ive always had, said Harden. Its just the last year and a half, I wasnt healthy enough to put the proper work in like Im used to. This summer was huge for me in that aspect, the hill runs, and the weightlifting, and then adding the skill on the court, as well.

The 33-year-old reflected upon the scrutiny he has been subjected to off-late, saying the following.

For the most part, Im to myself. Media or whoever, they talk and shoot their little jabs and shots or whatever the case may be. And I never respond, just because I know who I am and I know what Im about.

But mentally, it was very, very difficult for me just because Im in love with the game of basketball. If the money wasnt involved, Id be playing basketball. And before the injuries, I think everybody knows that. It was very difficult. A lot of tough times, lot of dark moments, which Ive never really went through because I was always healthy and playing the game of basketball. But Im in a really good space and I feel like Im back to where I needed to be, where Im supposed to be. The feeling is great.

There is no doubt that if Harden returns to his old self, its scary hours for the NBA.
