Doc shouldve saved that challenge for when he's fired

This a good one


simon2105

Harden was brought in to help Embiid in big time games, he took 2 shots total in the second half of an elimination game. Sixers max this man.


Spicy_Urine

One of them was a shitty three in the dying minutes


blitzoflightning

After which all you heard was “BOOOOOOO” lmao


JohnnyWinss

I was saying Boobs


grandzu

From who? All the Sixers fans had left


FBI_Agent_82

Embiid?


tendy-hands

Because he kept trying to get rid of the ball and only shot it because Embiid kept giving it back to him. He clearly did not want to be out there.


WanderNutz

Didnt he say in the press conference the ball never got back to him 😅 he deserves the HEAT he's bout to get from the media. They bout to flame his ass


ItsBobLoblawsLawBlog

As someone who was in attendance, yes.


Insanity_Troll

Harden in the regular, soften in the playoffs.


Mattsasse

Classic James Harden elimination game.

The beard must drain all his courage out through his sweat. That's gotta be it.

I just assumed all the strippers had energy absorbing booties.

He’s got a lot of quit in him

They dont call him Small Game James for nothin

Max this man and sign Mark Jackson when Doc leaves for the Lakers.

Dont put that on us

Well at least he took the shot


RobbobertoBuii

PJ Tucker is now 2-0 against Harden in playoff series since leaving the Rockets in 2021


DangerousCommittee5

Both times they were playing on different teams too


mortar_n_brick

It’s legit then, you can’t say it was the teams fault in this head to head match up


3rdEyeDeuteranopia

PJ Tucker is 6-0 against former 2018 Rockets teammates.


BigZ911

That was one of the most lifeless playoff games I’ve seen a team play at home, and I’ve seen the Knicks play at least 6 lifeless home playoff games in my life

fuck, I just realized they haven't even reached the ECF in the whole Trust The Process era


HurricaneHugo

It's been 22 years.


wan2tri

A Kings fan brought it up I think, in the post about the Kings missing the playoffs. Kings in the WCF is actually more recent (01-02) than Sixers in the ECF (00-01).


Moon-ShapedPool

That kings team is one of my favorite teams ever. Its basically the entire starting 5 were all amazing passers


SkyLightTenki

And against prime Shaq and Kobe, too


goblin_welder

They haven’t gotten out of the 2nd round in 22 straight years.


suzukigun4life

James Harden took 22 shots in Game 5 and 6. Not per game, but for both games combined. He only took 2 shots in the second half tonight. Way to go buddy.


WhenItsHalfPastFive

James Harden is only 32 years old playing like he's 42. How is any team gonna offer him anything close to a max?


jaypizzlepizzle

his legs are toast. maybe this'll be a come to jesus moment for him lol


iwanttobehappy2022

Yeah it’s really weird. Like it’s some Nuero thing going on with him


diamondisunbreakable

It's definitely not good. They need a healthy guard like Russell Westbrook. Both teams need to make that trade somehow happen asap. I say this as an honest 76ers fan.


NSFWThrowaway1239

I agree. As a Sixers fan as of comment, I think that Westbrook is exactly what we need to pair with Embiid and push us over the edge


BakedSteak

Wait a minute…

Way better if they could trade Harden for someone like Ben Simmons.

It's pretty shocking that in 2022 CP3 is quite possibly significantly better than James.


bighairyturd

If by quite possibly you mean most certainly then yea


inNoutCross

Yup put CP3 on the Sixers and they’re better


Millionaire007

MVP Harden would NEVER!


vanotro

3 free throw attempts in games 5 and 6 combined. 9 field goal attempts inside the arc in games 5 and 6 combined.


York_Villain

Has he fallen off physically or is it that he can't draw those cheap fouls like he used to?


anassholeabroad

His explosion in his first step looks substantially reduced in my eyes.


wazuuuppppp

NitroXYZ

The fact that people were getting downvoted to like 100 for saying his game 4 performance was an anomaly was so weird. Like we'd seen his recent body of work, he had one 30+ point performance in his last 40 or whatever games and yet it was somehow controversial to say that he wasn't gonna replicate anywhere near that again. People really get swept over by recency bias.


xCTRLxALTxDELx

Will Doc throw James Harden under the bus?? How can you give him a max after that performance.


royalfreshness8

Reporter: "Doc, can you win with Embiid?" Doc: "I don't know the answer to that right now"


Inght

Would you ask Pop that?


Bad_And_Wrong

Pop would stare that interviewer to death.


2drawnonward5

Pop wouldn't be asked that question because Pop would win with Embiid.


bebopblues

Pop: Hey big idiot, get your ass in the post, Duncan didn't win 5 championships shooting 3s.


JohnnyWinss

I know it's the meme but imagine what Pop's response would be. I feel for that poor interviewer

Westbrook and Embiid together, holy hell

Please god no.

Harden with only 2 shot attempts in the second half lol. Might as well just kept Ben Simmons.

Getting outscored by PJ Tucker in an elimination game is unbelievable even by Harden standards. [The cycle continues.](https://www.reddit.com/r/nba/comments/ulhegp/james_harden_drops_31971_on_610_from_3_taking/i7vhrig/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf&context=3)

I saw a great tweet: “In 30 years people will look at James Harden's stats and wonder why he's not ranked higher all-time, but the people who watched him will know why.” Credit to Barry 🐐


zOmgFishes

Watching the game and someone told you that guy once almost averaged 40 a game, you'd call him insane.


streetsandshine

Man can someone that watched this game explain to me why this man only took 9 shots??? Dude shot well too. How is Tyrese Maxey doubling the number of shots Harden is taking?


34payton07

He doesn’t move when the ball isn’t in his hands.

If you don't move your feet, you can't have any shooting!! How can you have any shooting if you don't move your feet?!

tturedditor

So much Harden hate with so many here. He just can’t win with the haters. Also can’t win with the Thunder, the Rockets, and Philly……


Palifaith

So the 76ers and Nets both ended up losing the Simmons/Harden trade.


snakebit1995

They lost but the rest of us won


SoaklandWarrior

The real trade was the friends they all lost along the way.

I love you non-Harden/Simmons players, especially you Struss, cause goddamn, 20 and 11 lets go!

Some classic Harden in this series.

ezdoesit3333

They had the same amount of points in the 2nd half of their team’s elimination game

It’s crazy how harden disappears in the playoffs. Dude is never gonna win a championship.

Dread it. Run from it. Small game James arrives just the same.

Honestly, what a horrible end... Danny was getting older, but he's most likely out for next year. And Harden... I know everyone's clowning on him, but it's pretty sad how fast he fell off.


SCOTTALLCAPS

“Hear me out…if we can get Harden, this team can make it happen” - Lebron


K__ing

It feels like the end of The Process to me. This is year 9 of it and next year is not looking good with a past his prime Harden and Embiid vs the Heat, Bucks, Celtics, Bulls and whatever is left of the Nets. Embiid's not enough on his own and Harden looks 1-2 seasons away from coming off the bench.


guynumber32

I think you need to give it 1 more year. Let Morey bring in a new coach. Let Harden rehab his hamstring in the offseason( I personally don't believe he comes back better, but you might as well be hopeful). Let Morey revamp the bench. Hope maxey takes another step Next year is ecf or bust imo.

Especially since that wound up being the only year out of..5? that he was healthy in the playoffs

Maybe his body liked the cold


WeirdIsAlliGot

Whoa, is that why Jimmy left? I feel bad for Embiid because he was heartbroken.


vampirepussy

Jimmy won in the end. Happy for him.


MisterSambone

Man, Jimmy Butler is so good. Imagine how far the Sixers would go if they had someone like him.


need2peeat218am

Jimmy Butler owned this series from start to finish. Sheesh.


VeGanbarimasu

Really goes to show you how important that mentality is, and also Butler’s conditioning and work ethic. Him and Harden are the same age and Butler looks like he’s ready to explode at any moment while Harden looks like he’s sleepwalking.


CoolBeansChemist

Hopefully Philly gets Maxey some help cause he the only dude that showed up.

GIVE JAMES HARDEN A SUPERMAX


JimmyV034

>"Embiid is number one in the league from the free-throw line, and James is number three, you know?" said Lue. "So, I think if you take away their free throws, neither one of those guys would be in the top ten in scoring. That tells you how much they get to the free-throw line. We just gotta do a good job pulling our hands back and making sure we're playing, not letting them get to the bonus, and doing the sweep rules. They are gonna get some calls because of who they are, but we just gotta make sure we're doing our part." Ty Lue sends his regards


DynamixRo

Ty tried to warn them it was going to be different in the playoffs, but they wouldn't listen.


fernandopoejr

not just ty. historically, fouls and ft's are called differently in the playoffs. to think that regular season shenanigans will still continue in the playoffs is a bit delusional


Jaerba

I defended James in Houston and his first year in Brooklyn. I got nothing for this season. He deserves all the flack.


sidighjd

Remember when Sixers fans told us they were winning the chip when they picked up Harden “You just gave Joel Embiid, James Harden!” “You just gave Embiid a real PG!”
