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.
