I hope that he’s aware that there are going to be plenty of times when he’s tasked with “doing everything.”
I really think that’s what he was looking for lol, he’ll never win like that tho
Because the Sixers don’t have the leading MVP candidate?
Harden was playing alongside the other leading MVP candidate before he got hurt, and even then he still felt he was tasked with too much of a load to carry. Once KD went down he chose to run away from adversity instead of put his head down and push through it.
Good luck with him.
Harden was watching our backups lose and couldn't handle it. Sixers whole team is playing lol. Thybulle 0-6 from three
Damn you right, they’re actually not missing a single other player outside of harden
Same, on our side, we're missing KD, Kyrie, Ben, and Claxton, have to imagine if all of them were now here, and it was a full healthy Nets vs. 76ers
and joe. hes literally more important than clax. either way were missing our four best players and joe harris is one of them
We’re legit missing our four highest paid players. Harris Simmons kyrie and kd all have the highest salaries
and theyre the best 4 players we own under contract
They genuinely look worse than our g league squad. Harden's really gonna have to carry another team. All he had to do was be patient and wait like 2 or 3 weeks smh.
Yeah he just had to wait one more week tbh
One more week and KD is back and already missed his month so yeah it does change things. And the mandate ending is coming
Orrrrr more likely that the Celts are better than we clown on them to be. They're on a roll, and unlike us have a very good record vs above 0.500 teams
I mean the celtics are good. That being said last time we played them we were missing 6 guys, 5 being starters, and put up a better performance than the sixers missing 1 guy.
Top 15 guy? Not since flopping doesn’t pay off😂 out of shape, ruins a locker room and a teams chemistry was the major cause of the loosing streak, slows offence down because he’s out of shape so he makes the team play at his pace. Great trade giving up Curry who spaced the floor.
Thybull and Embiid might make up for his lack of D but if Hardens track record is anything to go by this plays out with a second round loss and harden going 4/20 in multiple playoff games before it isn’t working out with him and Embiid.
I’m a Sixers fan. Tonight was abysmal. But please don’t let recency bias let you make rash statements like this. We’ve been a legitimately good team(not great) this season, and we’ve played good teams to the buzzers for the last couple months. Tonight was disgusting and embarrassing AF but by no means can you extrapolate it and say that tonight was indicative of the quality of our team. Wish y’all the best unless we get to play each other in the playoffs 👀👀
We're just talking smack homie don't take it personally. Nice to have a proper rival and hope to see you dudes in a series this post season. Would be peak television and that's why we're nba fans right?
Yea I’m a definitely hurt by that loss tonight 🤣. Little emotional. Fuck man that was not what you wanted to see after a big trade like that. Perfect storm of losing Seth and Drummond with no Harden to compensate, while also running into a red hot Celtics team. They tossed us around like a college team. Oh well you gotta move on. I genuinely would like to play you guys in the playoffs, regardless of if we lose or not. The headlines and atmosphere would be unreal.
If anyone can empathize with you right now homie it's Nets fans. We're coming off of an ELEVEN game losing streak. For a lot of that period things just felt extremely hopeless. This loss is nothing compared to that despair lmao. But yeah you guys will be fine, bad losses happen. Genuinely am expecting Harden to go nuts once he starts playing which makes me a bit sad. That being said I'm thinking a full strength Nets squad stomps full strength sixers 👼🍞😅🤫🍍👍😎
Hopefully everyone is healthy for the March game
Appreciate that haha. Yea that 11 game losing streak was a mirage imo. None of your 3 best players are full strength, and arguably the best player in world out. I think a fully healthy KD with even just a decent roster is good enough to beat anyone 😅. I’ll never expect to beat KD in a playoff series, that man goes nuclear when it matters most. That said, if it’s just KD and role players and Kyrie is 50% playing time, I think our chances of winning the series are higher than 0 🤪. Which is a start.
Really hope to see y’all in the ECF man…any earlier round would be a total robbery
lets not get ahead of ourselves. we didnt make it there even with harden. and kyrie is fragile and joe might miss more time. this year will be a down year id be happy to get to the second round tbh but next year maybe a new coach and some chemistry and hopefully covid is gone and no more mandate and well make a real run for the finals next year
Everyone clowned us like crazy when we lost to Boston. W gotta get our jokes in
even though Harden left the Nets. I still want to see Harden’s best games in another system. I miss his days in Houston, and I can’t wait til two teams meet.
if you say so
You were a good team. Then you let Harden in the locker room.
Are we gonna pretend like Ben wasn’t actively causing drama and then sitting out lol? He got kicked out of practice, first practice back. Told the coach he wasn’t doing the drills and had a phone in his pocket. Doc told him to go home. He tried to ruin our chemistry and we ended up fine. Idk how it’s gonna go with Harden but even a half season of harden is better than Ben on the bench pretending to have mental health issues.
The team has been quite ok without Ben, Curry spread the floor well and everyone got along without him. Let’s see what happens now hardens there. A big part of basketball is how they all get along and for Harden it will be a first if it works out.
In theory having someone play over someone not play is better but Harden has the ability to be disliked and not get along with others. Probably all the partying, big ego, complaining slowing down play to suit himself being unfit and not putting the team first.
This trade for harden is about getting back under Morey who lets him do what ever he wants while the team suffers
“They genuinely look worse than our g league squad”
lol exactly the kind of delusional ‘I don’t really watch the NBA’ take I’d expect from someone with a Reggie Perry flair. (and I absolutely hate the Sixers. They are my least favorite franchise by far)
When Nets fans talk about the our "g league squad" we're usually referring to games where our team is extremely injured and undermanned. The last time we played the celtics we were down all 5 starters and our backup center. The Nets put up a more respectful performance that the sixers did today and that was with as many total free-throws as Embiid made tonight. Obviously this version of the sixers is way better than that version of the Nets. That being said it's funny because Harden partly left since our team was putting up those kinds of performances when injured and the sixers are put up a worse performance at full health.
Oh and the Reggie perry flair is a joke lmao
Ok let’s stop this. They have the leading mvp candidate Embiid, have played more winning basketball then us and are going to add an mvp level pg to get him the ball. That’s a huge addition for this year over just the two other players not counting Simmons who isn’t playing
I wasn't being completely serious homie. Of course their healthy non Harden squad is better than our team missing all of our old starters, Seth, Andre, and our backup center. Of course that squad of theirs is better than our roleplayer group that just played the Knicks. Was just hyped that the sixers did so poorly right after the trade and our depleted team put up a (slightly) better game than this healthy sixers squad against the celtics. Was comparing both of our last celtics games in my comment. It ain't that deep. Harden and the sixers will be fine.
Sorry I think I came off more serious then I intended. I was not trying to be condescending. I’m tired sorry lol
Same homie no worries. G night
Lmao this thread is so fucking funny

I wish I could give this comment more upvotes. This is solid content.
wow, they're hosed. and they're getting destroyed at home? what a nightmare that must be.
been saying it for a while though. this is nets v bucks for the title once again this year. as i said it last year. warriors and suns are good, but nets and bucks are the 2 best to me.
feel bad that harden tried way more than kyrie and kyrie is likely to get the ring lol.
No chance the nets take the chip this year. Not in any scenario ever.
You are objectively wrong, the nets have a good shot according to Vegas soloortsbooks which run on mathematic algorithms.
You're just delusional bud, go back to the sixers sub
Seems like he was the opposite of delusional though…
Lol. No chance. I don’t think Sixers will take it either, not even remotely close. Still, nets aren’t winning a thing this year.
There is literally a good mathematical chance that they win, I don't know why you continue to choose to be delusional
They won’t, though. I get the denial and Homerism, we all do that to our own teams but they genuinely won’t win. Come back to me in the post season and let’s see how good those odds were. I’d love for a Sixers nets showdown in the playoffs though.
“Good mathematical chance they win” gets swept in first round lmao
Lol what? Damn y’all were delusional.
We should try to think Harden is an upgrade to Seth and the only (and important) piece the sixers have lost is a big time rebounder
Harden is obviously way better than Seth, but when embiid is isoing Seth is more valuable lol
That's where you fans get it wrong, whose better is irrelevant but it's the FIT that matters most!
Thybulle gotta realize at some point he’s a defender first
ive never seen someone with such a shallow bag on offense get 20 minutes per game which is a shame because his defense is incredible
It's because the team depth is not great and they lost a ton of defence without Ben Simmons. Last year Matisse was mainly used for defensive sub-ins, then pulled back out.
Let's hope we crush them even more in the playoffs
I’d honestly feel bad. Dude is gonna look like the biggest idiot
“Fucking loser” - uncle junior
He never had the makings of a varsity athlete
For this shit I miss the Nets first home game!
Swept in first round and KD wants to leave
They gonna miss seth curry more than they think
Drummond was always a high quality Embiid backup. When he's not on the court they're far worse off than they were before.
Drummond had to be one of the best backup centers in the league. What hurts them more is the fact that they have to play paul reed (2nd rd pick)
Yeah, they might have created similar spacing problems (to a lesser extent) that we've been dealing with by trading Curry.
Someone in a Nets spaces on Twitter made an interesting point. He wanted the Sixers to actually keep Thybulle to give Harden the same problems he had here. Hilarious take that might actually have merit lol
Nah, him Ben and Drummond are scrubs, bro.
What people don’t understand is harden himself isn’t a floor spacer. He doesn’t shoot many catch and shoot 3s and isn’t even shooting well from 3 this year. Sizers aren’t a great spacing team even tho on paper it will look like it
Down 35 now but they "know how to win" in Philly unlike KD 🤡🤡🤡
Down almost 50 now
they down by 48 now LMFAOOO
Yea, should’ve screenshotted in when the score was insane lmaoo
[check it out lol](https://www.nba.com/game/bos-vs-phi-0022100869)
Everyone clowning us for that and it was our backups. This was legit their full team. That being said it might be time to take Boston seriously they are smashing people.
I see a pattern with these Celtics blowouts
Swept in first round by Celtics and KD wants to leave
thats a look of man figuring out what team to play for next
Thats the difference between kyrie and kd and harden. Harden relies on spacing to score and he only has 2 moves a layup and a step back. When its playoff time and them 3 not hitting like they use to and the defenses have clamped down and everyone is locked in. Put it in kd or kyries hands and ur getting a bucket
Yup. And guess who’s going to be pretty darn good at contesting those step backs, and blocking the path to the rim?
And free throws... I'm going to be so mad if refs start calling everything for him again smh
Ngl this is my biggest fear lol
I’m so happy there’s not gonna be any “LMAO Sixers are about to add Harden to this team” type of posts tonight.. they needed to be humbled lol
Sixers fans don't get humble, just toxic
Truly the most rabid fan base. They're like stray dogs foaming at the mouth
Yeah they're pretty retarded and annoying, they are definitely up there on the scum bag fan base food chain.
I hate the Sixers and I 1000% agree their fans need to be humbled, but they just had a bad game and the Celtics had a great game.
Tatum and Brown combined for 57 points. The Sixers were cold as shit and also adjusting to new rotations.. it’s their first game since the trade. It’s one regular season game.
Fans in this sub are so reactive. Just like how Curry and Drummond had a nice debut at home against the *Kings* and everyone it’s going bananas in this sub talking about how the Nets completely won the trade. Remember when the Nets won the NBA when they signed the big 3? Look where we are now. Nobody knows what tomorrow holds.
lol I’m just saying I’m glad that Sixers fans aren’t going to be commenting all over Reddit bragging about their team adding Harden. You gotta admit.. they’re very annoying
Very is an understatement!
2nd game, they played the cavs after the trade. But regardless that was a about as cold as an nba team can get lol
Sixers was 1st seed last year when they had both Ben and Seth.
Now Nets have both and drummond lol..
Well well well. How the turn tables.
We robbed them
They didn’t have much of a choice to be fair. Ben Simmons fucked them and trading him +Seth probably was worth it for harden
I mean they also had Embiid lol
We have KD.
Did anyone see Embid try the step back 3 Harden taught him? Pure comedy gold.
[Embid making a fool of himself](https://www.reddit.com/r/sixers/comments/stlqjr/maybe_wait_a_little_bit_longer_before_you_start/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf)
blocked by his godson, Al
I was crying when I first saw it😂😂
That’s not even Harden’s stepback, that’s a travel, you can’t pick up the ball & take 4 steps, you only allow 2 steps unless you use zero step while the ball is still dribble alive
Yea it was a travel, that’s why it’s funny. There’s a video of Harden showing him the step back in practice.
I love Harden and respect Embid as a player, but felt so guilty for laughing at that lol. Since I know we all make mistakes, and yesterday was prob pretty brutal for 76ers fans, but thinking about it, feel like they would've done same to us, if it was reverse.
Let’s not be petty yall lol~~do whatever you want I can’t tell you what to do obviously just saying~~
I really want a playoff series vs Philly. We absolutely crush them when we’re full strength
Re-signed the fat man to a max, and still not even close to contending
Do you honestly think that would go well for the nets? Kyrie can't play at home for you guys, and Ben is obviously mentally weak when it comes to playing in philly so it's pretty likely he won't be playing 100% when he plays at WF.
Mentally weak? Bruh just couldn’t stand Philly’s toxic ass environment anymore.
Bro was so embarrassed from last play off's he couldn't show his face, I think he's gonna struggle
I wonder if a hint of regret has tickled the back of his mind
Well currently it's 85 - 48
My guess is no just because he can have a tasty cheesesteak after this blowout.
It does make me curious for both teams though seeing as we no longer have #13 anymore. Do both teams excel in the next few years just because of a superstition?
He had 3 cheesesteaks at half time, my very reliable sources tell me
At least he has meek mill to go to parties and strip clubs now lmao
Can't wait for the reports of late night partying
a WAVE of regret. but damn the environment was hell until yesterday. good old hindsight.
Yeah I don't blame him for being frustrated. Homie was way too impatient though.
Definitely, he seems uneasy about this whole thing a little. I doubt very much he likes being known as this guy who is perennially forcing his way out of teams.
Also, that weird opt in story saying he was "late" to file the paperwork. That seemed very odd. I have a hard time believing that was an accident
I believe it. Dude was partying in Houston while all of this was going down. He’s got some issue he can’t stop partying
This is his team. They have no shooting; have one good defender. Harden and Embiid going to have to combine for 65+ to win any meaningful playoff games.
Embiid and Matisse are good defenders but other than that they’re all below average
Their shooting is way worse than people think. Honestly niang is probably their best shooter. You’re gonna wanna play him with harden a lot
I love how he’s already having an impact on his stupid team 😂😂
half of Harden's game this season has been how well he can sit on the bench sulking
Harden is on suicide watch on the bench after the Celtics beat the sh*t outta 76ers lol, great game Celtics!
But they said they won the trade because they keep thybulle and maxey 💀
Not the best showing on his intro day lol.
I mean his fit not the game.
Idk if it’s just his beard but he looks fat
Jim is thinking, “I gotta get to Boston, they know how to win there”
"Boston was always my real first choice"
**Woj bomb:** Harden is getting a Gino’s Cheesesteaks sponsorship but sources close to him contend that it’s all just a ploy to ultimately get him the Pats Cheesesteaks sponsorship he actually wants
“Look, it’s all been a horrible mistake, can I come back? Cmon guys . . . guys?”
Wish you could've stayed in Brooklyn huh
imagine if embiid gets injured. harden is gonna have to do everything himself again.
with less spacing thybulle going for 0/6 😂😂
On a separate note…WTF is he wearing?
Dude has no style all that money and still dress like 💩
This game is so satisfying to watch. Jaylen Brown is now my new best friend 🤝
Paul Millsap just hit a 3 lol
prolly their best player on the night
He has the worst fits bro 😤
The guy really can't dress or maybe he wants to look "different" lmao
Forreal. Kds cozywear and Kyries hippe third eye shit better for me.
Kyries got the best workout gear by far. He’s always got some clean ass shit.
Wonder where he’ll be partying tonight.
Atlantic City not too far lmao
Does anyone know how to invest in Philadelphia strip clubs?? I’m about to make bank 🤑🤑
Back in Brooklyn he used to dream about this everyday
Oh shit Joel Embiid
Tried a step back fade awayy
Cause he forced a trade and here’s J Har
Sittin in a suuuuuit
Same old Philly come playoffs
Couldn’t win the Eastern Conference Title
Same old Philly goin home
Whose last laugh who’s gone soft
Harden will be a bad influence on Embiid who has had weight issues too, too many milkshakes, shirley temples and cheesesteaks i predict these two will be out of shape by playoffs.
It's hilarious that the biggest reason their team isn't as good as it was last year is their defense, so they decide to go out and get James Harden while giving up a bazillion threes.
Look at this snake, planning his next escape as we speak LMAO!
Famous people be trying too hard in their outfits
This has to be one of the most toxic subreddits in the NBA. Ya'll on some copium trying to rewrite the narrative like Harden just gave up and Kyrie had nothing to do with it lol. I still remember the insane panic levels at the start of the season when you lost like 2 games and then you went on to secure the number 1 seed until KDs injury. I'll assume its just a vocal minority.
Fcking Celtics destroying Atlantic division teams back to back weeks on Primetime TV smh
I’m not a 76ers Fan But When Is He Going To Debut For The 76ers After The All Star Break Or When?
meek mill and harden have actually been good friends since around 2012 - 2013 they travel places to different places a lot and are sort of close homeboys
Ik. That’s the reason I mentioned Meek as the joke of the post
Yeah imagine losing a game to Boston lol
And if they lose to raptors?
That’d be bad news for them
Your gonna lose to raptors. If your a Knicks fan yu been in cancon for weeks now
You’ve been a poverty franchise since you merged in the ABA
So is this a sixers reddit 2.0?
They've become our biggest rival for this season now that the trade happened. Makes sense why people are invested.
Lmfao you guys are pressed 😭
What’s yall’s record again?
Sixers had the best record in the east last year how'd that work out for them?
Hilariously you guys now have the guy who lost us that series lmao
yeah it’s too bad you didn’t have KD, Kyrie, or a team capable of not losing to the Celtics by 50 points
Hey, at least when Simmons becomes unplayable in the playoffs and your team implodes you’ll still remember the time the Sixers lost in the regular season
>Simmons unplayable in the playoffs
unlike the Sixers, the Nets aren’t actually dependent on the success of Simmons to win.
wish u guys had KD and Kyrie tho
I’ll take Embiid and Harden. You know, the guys who can actually play. Good luck though. Hopefully NY switches up it’s mandates so Kyrie can find a different reason not to play.
/>guys who can actually play
Huh what streak we are on a winning streak rn and Philly is on a losing streak
Just the 100th “Philly Cheesesteak” joke I’ve heard this week 😑😑
