NBA Twitter reacts as former ESPN anchor Rachel Nichols is seen partying with Sixers stars Joel Embiid and James Harden
The NBA is a big business, with each team trying to get as good as they can, to try and compete for the championship. However, to actually be good enough to be in the running for a chip is not as easy as people make it seem to be.
The Brooklyn experiment shows that getting multiple superstars in the same jersey doesn’t guarantee a win. If a trio of generational talents like James Harden, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant can’t win a chip together, then who can?
However, since bailing out from the Rockets and then the Nets, James Harden has his reputation on the line with the Sixers. In order to help them develop a championship-caliber roster, he even took a massive $14 million paycut. While Daryl Morey and co. are working on the frontlines to sign and trade for players, Joel Embiid and Harden also took matters into their own hands.

It’s not certain whether it was just friends hanging out or this combo had an ulterior motive. However, one thing is for sure, Jimmy Butler won’t be happy xD
