The Sixer Sense Podcast returns on the heels of James Harden going nuclear on the Sixers and General Manager, Daryl Morey! While on a tour in China, Harden had the following to say about his current employer.

What really stands out is the “Let me say that again”. As if it was not clear the first time Harden said it, he doubled down on calling Morey a “liar” and that he would “never be a part of an organization that he’s a part of”. Lucas Johnson and Jonathan Geib provide their initial reactions to this Harden video. How did we get to this point? What led Harden to go to this next, seemingly unnecessary, level? The guys give their thoughts.

Soon after this video surfaced, even more, ripple effects were seen in the Sixers organization. First up, Joel Embiid removed “Processing” and all Philadelphia affiliations from his socials. Then, PJ Tucker entered the chat and posted an Instagram story of him and Harden with song lyrics showing solidarity for his friend James Harden. This situation is rapidly getting uglier and it makes you wonder just how much worse this is going to get!

If you were bored with the Sixers’ offseason thus far, how do you feel now? In the beginning, this felt like a Morey vs Harden standoff, but it is starting to feel much larger. With other players publically supporting Harden, this feels like a standoff between superstar players and the Sixers franchise and fanbase. We all know star players run this league and at times it can feel like a reality television show, but at this point, there are hints this could turn into a new Process era for the Sixers, something that no one in the city longs for.
