WALKER: HARDEN BEARD NOT ORIGINAL
Oklahoma defensive tackle Casey Walker knows he and Thunder star James Harden have similar beards.
Harden's beard became popular during the Thunder's run through the NBA playoffs, but Walker said his is the original.
“He copied me because I had it last year,” Walker said.
Walker's beard isn't as long as Harden's.
“I had to cut mine for my wedding so it's now growing back,” said Walker, who got married in the offseason.
Defensive tackle David King on the team's goals:
“Go to your classes, go to your workouts, go to your meals, just do the little things. Because if you miss too many little things, they add up to a big thing and it takes away from the team. That's what happened to us last year with a bunch of guys missing classes and getting suspended from practice and whatnot. We just, we weren't ready and it showed when we got exposed by Tech, Baylor and OSU. We just got to come out this year and do the things we didn't do last year.”
