After weeks of being submerged in trade rumors, James Harden showed up for his first preseason game tonight, in Houston's match against the San Antonio Spurs.

While it was a welcome sight for many Houston fans, some couldn't help but notice some differences in Harden's appearance. On Twitter, one particular photo went viral.

It's obviously not the most flattering pic and, unfortunately for Harden, it didn't take long for it to become the subject of jokes around the NBA community.

In all seriousness, the Rockets superstar seems ready for the upcoming season and not nearly as big as this picture makes him look. We can expect to see the same old Harden.

The bigger question is whether or not he will continue his journey with the Rockets. It's no secret he wants out, but we'll have to wait and see if the Rockets decide to move him.
