James Harden reveals Daryl Morey’s broken promise of max contract in Sixers

Since parting ways with the Houston Rockets, James Harden’s basketball career has been anything but stable. He has continuously traded from team to team, but he has yet to find a place where he can truly regain his peak performance. However, recent revelations from Harden shed light on a broken promise from Daryl Morey, the Philadelphia Sixers’ general manager.

The disappointment and lack of stability in James Harden’s recent journey only amplify his desire to return to the glory days of his career as the search for a stable team continues for the former Rockets superstar, but shocking revelations regarding him and the Sixers’ franchise have caused quite a stir.

Harden details Morey’s broken promise

James Harden recently opened up about a broken promise made by Daryl Morey regarding a max contract with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Despite joining forces with the Clippers and their star-studded lineup of Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and Russell Westbrook, Harden admits that the chemistry is a work in progress. Some setbacks, such as their loss to the Denver Nuggets without key players Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray, have raised doubts about their ability to succeed. However, there have also been encouraging moments, like their thrilling comeback victory over the Golden State Warriors.

Harden’s decision to leave Philadelphia after demanding a trade has always revolved around monetary concerns. The question of what was promised to him following a pay cut he took for the 76ers the previous year has been central to this narrative.

In an interview with Sam Amick of the Athletic, Harden stated that Morey had assured him of a max contract that never came to fruition. The 76ers, however, have refuted any promises made by Morey and reasserted their position when contacted by Amick. Additionally, the NBA has twice investigated this matter and found no evidence supporting Harden’s claim, emphasizing that such a promise would have violated the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

This ongoing dispute between Harden and the 76ers continues to build up more stories, but a certain broadcaster has blamed James Harden for his downfall.

NBA analyst lebeled James Harden as the “problem'”

James Harden has been the subject of criticism from various commentators recently after a season after season of a bad run of form. One notable figure, Mavs announcer Brian Dameris, openly voiced his frustration, labeling Harden as “the problem.” Dameris went on a rant, directing his criticism toward the Los Angeles Clippers star guard.

Before the NBA In-Season Tournament clash between the Mavericks and Clippers, Dameris took a jab at Harden, offering some advice. He jokingly suggested piping his comments into the Clippers’ locker room, hoping that James would take note.

Dameris compared Harden to individuals with terrible roommates who always complain about their living situation but fail to realize that they may be the problem. He directed his frustrations towards Harden, proclaiming, “Hey James, you’re the problem!”

Dameris emphasized that if things don’t work out for Harden this year, he shouldn’t be pointing fingers at others or looking for other teams. According to Dameris, Harden is not the Beard, he is not the system; rather, he is the problem.

The comments from Dameris have generated buzz and added to the ongoing discussion surrounding James Harden’s performance and impact on the Clippers team.

While Harden has shown glimpses of his former self since joining the Clippers, doubts still linger regarding whether he can fully regain his prime form. Despite a change of scenery and a fresh start, there is a cloud of uncertainty surrounding Harden’s ability to return to his dominant best.

Only time will tell if Harden can silence his critics and prove that he is indeed the solution rather than the problem. As the season progresses, fans eagerly await to witness his resurgence or further decline in form.
