Jay Williams: Damn right James Harden should feel disrespected by the Philadelphia 76ers
Jay Williams was on First Take this morning talking about James Harden and the Philadelphia 76ers.
Jay Williams: James Harden is “damn right” to feel disrespected by the 76ers
Oh sure, Jay Williams.
It definitely has absolutely nothing to do with James Harden, the starting point guard for the Philadelphia 76ers who came here promising to deliver when the team needed him most and finally lift this franchise out of the second round of the playoffs only to be nearly unplayable in Game 6 and Game 7 agains the Boston Celtics to end yet another disappointing season.
It’s not James Harden’s fault that no other team in the NBA wants to trade for him because of the clear as day decline in his abilities on the court and the fact that he’s nothing more than a problem in any city that he plays basketball in. No one cares that he stands at the three point line and dribbles for 14 seconds, just to throw up a three point shot that only sometimes he’s successful in making.
Can you even imagine that anyone would be upset with the way that James Harden plays basketball these days? I mean seriously. Everyone LOVES when he drives to the basket, looking for nothing more than a cheap foul so he can go to the charity stripe.
We all complain WITH Harden when he stands under the basket like he was zero clue as to why play continued while relentlessly complaining to the officiating crew that he was fouled when flailing his arms around like an idiot in the paint.
The Philadelphia 76ers organization, the entire NBA and Sixers fans are the ones who are disrespectful towards James Harden.
How dare we expect a future Hall of Fame basketball player to accept some accountability and live up to his word both on and off the court. Why should we think any different than to meet Harden’s demands and send him to the Los Angeles Clippers after he told us that he was here to win a championship with Joel Embiid and that he would DEFINITELY be returning to Philly?
James Harden is the one who should feel disrespected by the Sixers organization, the NBA, Daryl Morey, and this fanbase. He is the victim in this situation. None of this is his fault. He didn’t do anything to keep to put himself in this situation. He MUST feel disrespected or he simply hates basketball.
Jay Williams gets it. Right everyone? He’s a former NBA player! Of course he does!
There’s no way he’s just on television talking out of his ass, making ridiculous “hot takes” to drive engagement to his shitty television show or whatever he “thinks” he’s doing on ESPN.
Jay Williams is right! James Harden should feel disrespected! Of course! Duh!
