Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce got into a headed debate on the Top 5 players…
James Harden is now in Philadelphia and will likely be suiting up tomorrow night for the 76ers against the Boston Celtics. With the blockbuster trade that happened last week, the Sixers sent Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, and Andre Drummond backing to Brooklyn. In return, they landed James Harden and Paul Millsap.
With any trade, it’s tough to see some guys leave Philadelphia but when you have an opportunity to land James Harden in a trade and not give up young players like Tyrese Maxey and Matisse Thybulle, it’s something you can’t turn down. Unfortunately, you’re going to lose some fans in the process.
Of course, I’m not talking about Ben Simmons fans. There aren’t any Ben Simmons fans left and rightfully so, however Seth Curry has already caused the Sixers to lose one key supporter since he was traded.
After the Warriors beat the Lakers 117-115 on Saturday night, the brother of Seth Curry, Steph Curry, spoke with the media and talked about his brother’s trade to Brooklyn.
“I had to change my favorite team in my phone to get the alerts from Philly to Brooklyn.”
Steph continued to say the trade was obviously a big move in the NBA and his brother was simply caught in the crossfire as a trade piece to get the deal done. Curry did acknowledge that Seth loved his time in Philly but that trade is a no-brainer and had to be done.
Damn. I was concerned about this from the jump and honestly hoped that the Under Armor connection between Steph and Embiid would be strong enough to keep him on board as a Philadelphia 76ers fan but clearly, that’s not the case.
