The Philadelphia 76ers finally returned to the basketball court last night, beating the Washington Wizards…
James Harden is literally living in La La Land if he thinks anyone in the city of Philadelphia actually gives two shits about his relationship with Daryl Morey and the Philadelphia 76ers’ organization.
James Harden crying about himself and Morey at Sixers practice
James Harden tells reporters today that the relationship with Daryl Morey can't be repaired: “This is in life. When you lose trust in someone, it’s like a marriage. … I wanted to retire a Sixer. And the front office didn’t have that in their future plans.”— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) October 13, 2023
I mean seriously dude, it’s not like you showed up in the final games of the playoffs last season and the Sixers desperately needed you back while the organization has done everything possible to make sure that doesn’t happen.
Harden is literally crying because he decided to opt into his player option to remain in Philly and thought he was going to get traded. That’s what we’re talking about when it comes to the Philadelphia 76ers right now. What are we doing here?
Maybe read the room a little bit? The city of Philadelphia’s vibes are at an all time high right now so of course, here comes James Harden to bitch and complain because again, another grown man “lied” to him about what would happen when he opted into his player option to stay with the Sixers this season.
James…the Philadelphia Phillies are in the NLCS for the second straight season and the Philadelphia Eagles are 5-0, also for the second straight season. Hell, the Flyers won their first (and maybe only) game of the 2023-24 NHL season and I’m sure the Philadelphia Union are in the MLS Playoffs.
Side Note: I haven’t been about to watch the Union since the MLS put their entire league behind a AppleTV+ paywall but that’s beyond the point.
Listen to Bryce Harper. These are the guys we care about. Not people like James Harden.
We get it, Harden. You’re upset. Cool. Maybe just shut the fuck up now and practice with the team and then take some time afterwards and realize that no fans of the Sixers or Philly sports fans in general actually give a shit about your trade request or the fact that you’re unhappy.
Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey are practicing and also attending Phillies postseason games at Citizens Bank Park both wearing Bryce Harper Jerseys. Embiid even hit the broadcast with a signature Harper “throat slice” celly and you want everyone to feel bad for you, James? Fletcher Cox was there too dancing his ass off with The Fightins in the locker room after a series-clinching Game 4 win over the Atlanta Braves.

The city of Philadelphia doesn’t play these games anymore. We already did this song and dance with Ben Simmons and that was a one time event.
This isn’t Los Angeles or Miami or any other sports town where all of the off the court/field drama stuff gets to us, even more so when we have two other sports teams playing their dicks off while doing everything they possibly can to bring every last fan in Philly along with them for the ride.
You want us to care that you and Daryl Morey are having an all-time battle of losers? We don’t like Daryl Morey either! Your ship has sailed bud. It’s over. Shut up. Play basketball or at this point, don’t.
Literally nobody cares.
