James Harden's Outfit at the NBA Awards Was as MVP-Worthy as He Is

It should be expected at this point. Wherever newly crowned NBA MVP James Harden goes—whether it's Paris Fashion Week or the a postgame presser—he goes forth stylishly.

The league's most valuable player carried on that tradition at last night's NBA Awards, where he took home the top honor—and looked damn good doing it. The Houston Rockets' Flexer-in-Chief wore a hard-to-ignore belted look by British designer Neil Barrett to the annual awards show, stunting as if he knew he'd be on stage at the end of the night.

Harden paired the patterned overcoat with matching trousers, a statement necklace, and some shiny lace-ups (worn sockless, of course). It looks effortless only because it's Harden, easily one of the NBA's most stylish players. 

Perhaps it was Harden's stylist Kesha McLeod who said it best, hashtagging 'autopilot' in her 'gram of Harden's fit last night. It takes a unique brand of confidence—one Harden has demonstrated on and off the court—to make this look easy, especially in June, in Los Angeles, under the lights. Somehow, Harden managed to keep it cool (the dark sunglasses didn't hurt his cause, either). 

Of course, not everyone on Twitter agreed.

Hate it or love it, James Harden is on top. His win over LeBron James and Anthony Davis was well-deserved, and a big win requires a big mood. Mr. Harden delivered.
