Kyrie Irving slams James Harden for being ‘halfway in’ while in Brooklyn last season
Kyrie Irving spoke with the media last night and asked about the Brooklyn Nets playing without Kevin Durant and how this year is different than last year.
Kyrie Irving basically noted that the major difference is the fact that James Harden, who was “halfway in” all of last season before getting traded to Philly, is no longer on the team.

“Well, I’m consistently in the lineup. That helps. We also don’t have halfway in anybody in the locker room.”
I mean that’s just pure comedy coming from Kyrie Irving who can’t manage to be there for his team throughout a full season of basketball. To be clear, Irving is literally the definition of halfway in.
Not to mention, he is now playing with Ben Simmons and the jury is still out on whether or not the former Sixers’ point guard even enjoys playing basketball in the first place.
Meanwhile, the now-healthy Philadelphia 76ers are clicking on all cylinders and the Harden-Embiid connection continues to flourish on a nightly basis. Do you think anyone in the Sixers locker room gives a shit about what’s happening in Brooklyn?
I highly doubt it.
After last night’s win in Los Angeles, the Sixers (27-16) slid into fourth place in the Eastern Conference Standings, 4.5 games behind the Boston Celtics in first place. They are only a half game behind the Brooklyn Nets who are in second place with a 27-15 record on the year.
The Brooklyn Nets will come to Philadelphia when the Sixers return home from their current West Coast trip on January 25th.
