“There was simply numerous dysfunction — clearly. There was numerous inside issues that I’m not going to ever simply say or put within the media or something, and that was one of many the explanation why I selected to make my determination,” Harden stated after scoring 29 factors within the 76ers’ 101-98 victory.

“However now, quick ahead to right this moment, I don’t appear like the loopy one,” he added. “I don’t appear like the man, or the quitter or regardless of the media wish to name me. Like, I knew what was happening and I simply determined to, like, I’m not constructed for this. I don’t wish to cope with that. I wish to play basketball and have enjoyable and revel in doing it.”

Harden was acquired from Houston in January 2021 and the Nets rapidly turned a championship favourite with their potent lineup. However they misplaced within the second spherical of these playoffs after each Irving and Harden have been injured in opposition to Milwaukee, then struggled to get off the bottom in 2021-22 after Irving refused to be vaccinated in opposition to the coronavirus so he may very well be eligible to play in all their video games.

After Durant sprained his knee in January 2022, the Massive Three was typically all the way down to only one and Harden’s effort and curiosity appeared to wane whereas compelled to hold a group that needed to play unproven gamers round him. He instructed the group he wished to go away and the Nets despatched him to the 76ers in a package deal for Ben Simmons.

Harden wouldn’t say if the Nets’ issues — or his frustrations — began with the issue in having the ability to rely on Irving.
