The Philly Standoff
Harden left Philadelphia under the darkest cloud possible. First of all, he convinced Daryl Morey to fire Doc Rivers. Then he complained about the lack of communication between him and the front office. He underwhelmed in the postseason but the Sixers had a chance to lick their wounds and bounce back.
Imagine an entirely focused Harden and Embiid with massive chips on their shoulders. Instead, Harden forced his way out of a contender as he followed Kyrie Irving’s footsteps. That’s a bad look and shows how selfish he is. Harden ruined it for everyone because he only cares about the bottom line (via Deadspin).
