The Philadelphia 76ers finally returned to the basketball court last night, beating the Washington Wizards…
In shocking news to absolutely no one, James Harden keeps making headlines by not attending Philadelphia 76ers’ practices.
Harden was absent yet again from Sixers practice on Wednesday and of course, the media ate it right up, asking Joel Embiid about his teammate who was noticeably missing.
Embiid responded saying “I think probably had something important to do or something came up. But, you know, guys know what it is.”

Listen, I already made it clear as day that no one in the city of Philadelphia gives a shit about James Harden and his drama-ridden relationship with Daryl Morey and the Philadelphia 76ers’ front office.
That being said, I’m not going to comment on him not showing up to practice. It was expected.
Harden is a grown man that is acting like a child.
I will say, it’s good to see Embiid brush it off with a light-hearted comment. I thought the response was pretty funny, but other websites are saying Embiid was throwing shade at Harden.
Don’t really think that’s the case, right? Embiid’s comment was a pretty clear indication that he really isn’t interested in getting into the James Harden nonsense this season. We aren’t either. It is what it is.
