What's old (and short) may be new (and still short) again.

Houston Rockets star James Harden showed up at practice on Wednesday wearing short shorts that, for those fans with long long memories, will remind them of the 1980s (or John Stockton, who continued to stick with them even after the calendar flipped to the 21st century).

Sure, the trademark beard is still long, but the shorts are clearly not.

Could Harden's near-Speedo moment signal a return to one of the NBA's fashion staples of yesteryear? Well, considering the words "defending NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers" is actually legit, anything is possible.

With that in mind, why not hop in our time machine and enjoy the short shorts look that once owned the NBA, including the aforementioned John Stockton?
