    I wish I could share the video, but it'll be making the rounds soon enough.

    Transcript:

    JH: Daryl Morey is a liar, and I will never be a part of an organization that he's a part of.

    Let me say it again

    Daryl Morey is a liar, and I will NEVER be a part of an organization that he's a part of.

    Crowd: 哦哦哦!


    Does this mean anything? I mean, probably not, but it's been a slow offseason and it's interesting hearing what James had to say about his one-time buddy.

    Wow just wow
    Is it because of the trade or promises made?

    Let’s see what the media does with this . . .

    i never liked Morey. I am not big fan of Harden character either but he at least doesn't seem fake.

    I think he said “again”. That is the key modifier.

    In any case, this is not targeted at Morey, but at Embiid. Trust me. Harden is getting his $35 million this year regardless. He knows he won’t get another payday again because Morey lied to him (his words, not mine). So he has no effs to give and just wants to go full Joker mode and watch the whole thing burn down. Also, a lot of people in the league don’t like Daryl Morey, people need to remember that. So honestly, Harden has nothing to lose and actually a lot to gain. The Sixers owner just took out a crap ton of debt to buy another perennially underachieving sports franchise in the Commanders, so he does not have the money to waste trying to get a perfect deal. I actually expect Morey to trade Harden for whatever they can get, before Embiid also demands out, or more importantly, before Morey gets fired.

    I get it.

    Harden sees himself as the Man obviously but it is year 2023 after all and Morey probably wanted him on a cheaper deal or get back picks and assets for him.

    I do not see the Clippers selling their farm for Harden either.

    It is just more drama and entertainment, who cares.

    If Harden were mentally tough and mature, he'd challenge for GOAT status. He really is that talented. But it's hard to overcome his mental and emotional shortcomings. Lashing out like this at Daryl Morey is just horrible form and yet another hit to his already-bad reputation.

    I have no more fond memories of Daryl Morey because of how he lied his way out of our Rockets (I don’t care how Fertitta is as an owner, you can’t just say you’re going to take time off for family and then turn around and join another organization).

    I also think that he’s been overrated as a GM over the years, though it seems like more and more people are sharing that sentiment.

    While I don’t know if calling Morey out publicly like this was the best choice, if JH was promised a certain thing which is now being reneged on, I feel like he does have a right to feel peeved at the situation.

    Just my two cents

    Completely agree. As they say, “Pride goeth before the fall.”

    He has friends at Rice still. Pera could bring him on staff until this settles itself.
