The summer was filled with drama as James Harden expressed his desire to be traded from the Philadelphia 76ers. He even went as far as calling the team’s president, Daryl Morey, a liar in front of the press. Despite this, his teammates are trying to remain focused on the upcoming season. Tobias Harris, one of the team’s stars, stated in an interview that they are taking the situation day by day and not involving themselves in the Harden drama.
Harden has remained professional throughout the ordeal, attending his team’s training camp and preseason contests. However, he has made it clear that he doesn’t believe he can mend his relationship with Morey. Harden compared losing trust in someone to a failed marriage and expressed his frustration over the situation. Despite his desire to retire as a Sixer, the team’s administration did not have that plan for him.
Despite the ongoing trade saga, Harden is still ready to contribute to the team during the preseason games. He has been working hard and remains committed to the game of basketball. While he still hopes for a trade, he understands that he can only control his own actions and continues to put in the work. The situation remains uncertain, but for now, Harden’s focus is on the game and supporting his teammates.
