James Harden is the best bench player in the NBA. Harden won the 2012 NBA Sixth Man award on Thursday. He averaged 17 points a game while shooting 49 percent from the field and was the Thunder’s scoring spark off the bench. Harden is double trouble, he can take you to the basket, but also is not afraid to let it fly from three-point range. He also has one of the best beards in all of sports.
