James Harden looks set to re-sign with the Philadelphia 76ers and NBA Twitter has mixed reactions about the news!
The Philadelphia 76ers made the bold decision to trade for James Harden this season. The team essentially decided to trade Ben Simmons for The Beard, in the hopes that it would propel them to a championship.
The pairing of Harden and Joel Embiid had its ups and downs. While he performed well in the regular season, his reputation as an inconsistent Playoff player came back to haunt him.
With Embiid going down with an injury, Harden was expected to lead the team in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. Unfortunately, he would fail to show up, as the 76ers fell to the Miami Heat.
