    Oh the irony in Harden joining PG and the LAC because they wouldn’t pay him. Now Paul George gets the bag.

    Heard Morey upgraded to iPad pros and that made the difference.

    Playoff chokes, strip-clubs, and whatnots... I'd still have Harden at $35M than PG at $52M
    And also, Playoff P is not exactly the whoop-de-doo...

    Not sure how this helps the 76ers in the playoffs. Now 2 of their 3 best players are bad in the play offs and injured a lot.

    That being said I am also not sure if the76ers had better options.

    Philly swapped PG for Harden.

    I am pretty high on Jared McCain, could be the situation where the younger player develops as Maxey did.

    They could also have had Knecht.

    Embiid will be 31 come playoff time and is ridiculously injury prone.

    This is likely their last year or 2 to have a chance for a title around him.

    The upcoming post-season bloodbath in Philly will be rated NC-17.

    It is like Morey never learned his TMac/Yao lesson. How long till this "let't pay 37 year old PG 50+M a year" becomes the worst contract in the league?
    Glad he is no longer running Rockets.

    Morey is still so clueless. “Gotta get the star no matter what”. What a ridiculous overpay.

    I’m glad Morey’s gone hopefully Stone doesn’t do anything crazy like that

    This horrific deal is just another Chris Paul signing for Morey. He will get fired or quit after the team falls apart ringless in 2026.
