    Nah, harden embiid Doc all have crazy pressure. Harden, choked too many times, have to get it done this time. Doc same thing. Embiid, talked all the trash, got Simmons removed, no excuses now.

    It’s actually Joel and Harden and im a Sixers fan, for years us Sixers fans have agreed that Ben making the offense 4 on 5 caused our playoff struggles. Now Joel has a elite halfcourt playmaker that shoots the ball, if Sixers still fail what’s the excuse then? Joel is a superstar and must deliver in the playoffs consistently. Not just put good series stats, Harden on the other hand is a known playoff under performer and if he doesn’t step up on the Sixers and win a chip it makes him look bad.

    If they don’t win Harden might get more hate than Kyrie & Westbrook combined in the media… that’s a scary thought 😅

    Harden never lost a series after leading 3-1.
    Doc did. Twice.

      Ain’t it 3 times?

    I love the trade but I hope Harden wont dribble the ball for 20 secs. Embiid is having mvp season. Plus yep, if this won’t workout I agree that doc rivers going to be the scapegoat.
    PS: Still dont think he is one of the greatest 15 coaches ever

      Harden is terrible off and defensively

    Basketball is a team sport. It can never fall on one player or coach.

    Harden is not the same guy from 3 years ago. The guy is overweight and injury prone. Bust move.

    I can’t wait until Brooklyn beats the sixers and Ben posts the same meme Joel posted. One thing they’re forgetting, harden pissed off durant. You don’t leave Kevin durant to go play with Joel embiid. And KD will remind them who the best player in the world is.

      I’m with you on that

      Why would he remind the Sixers that Giannis is the best player in the world?

    Someone please tell me how Simmons and Drummond gonna be on the court together 🤣

      Bro Why Does Everybody Keep Saying That They Do Not Have Too Be On The Floor Together

    • Lance Jones

      February 16, 2022 at 2:00 pm

      @Ray Ray Stephen A is talking about Drumm’s offensive boards for Kyrie and KD…so you’re gonna have him on the court with them but not Ben??? Also, in case you’ve forgotten, Ben is a liability in the playoffs and unplayable in half court sets, especially in the 4th qtr. He stands around and does nothing. 4 on 5 basketball.

      @Lance Jones you should be an NBA head coach

      @Minh Urban nah I’m good. I like my job.

    More pressure on Harden. No question. He’s the one that pouted his way out like a brat just like AD

    I think this is the first time Harden’s had good coaching. D’antoni isn’t a coach, he’s an enabler. He didn’t make Harden better, he just put the ball in his hands the most. I think Rivers and Cassell can challenge him to bring out a different facet of his game, maybe even reintroduce his mid range. That could be scary.

    No one wanted to deal with Ben Simmons.

    if I had a dollar for every “pressure” videos that espn has, I would be a billionaire

    You have a coach who chokes in the playoffs with a player (harden) who chokes in the playoffs with another player (embiid) who cries after losing in the playoffs so it sounds like a team that will not do well in the playoffs 😀

    I don’t know why sports casters keep on arguing who won the trade. Can’t we all be just happy that these players are happy where they are now.

    Jay is right… doc has more pressure because his playoff record is shameful lol

    Doc is good coach, but only for bad teams.
