The NBA pregame runway has become a staple around the league.

Players piece together their best outfits and smile for the cameras as they walk into the arena each night.

Houston Rockets' James Harden is known for his erratic but stylish pregame outfits and even earned 'Second Team All-Drip' honours last season according to SlamOnline's @leaguefits Instagram page.

The reigning MVP has been on fire this season scoring 40 or more points in 17 games, eclipsing the 50-point mark in five of those games. When he reaches the 40-point mark, the Rockets are 13-4.
