James Harden is a 10-time All-Star. Unfortunately for the Philadelphia 76ers outfielder, the counter will not grow after he was left off the roster for this season’s All-Star Game. The Sixers’ NBA teammate Joel Embiid heard the news, and the long man clearly wasn’t happy about it for Harden.
Embiid quickly took to Twitter to share his reaction to the snub to Harden. In his mind, JoJo believes the league should be held accountable for this antics:
“You owe us some explanations @NBA”.
It is hard to disagree with Embiid on this one, especially considering how crucial Harden has been to the Sixers’ success this season. At 33-17, Philly is currently third in the Eastern Conference and is only three games behind the league-leading Boston Celtics. There is no denying that Harden’s play has had a lot to do with it.
James Harden has had a regular All-Star Game date for the past 10 years. Harden’s 10-year streak is now coming to an end, and Joel Embiid can’t make peace with this absurd decision by the NBA.
In case you were wondering who should have been out instead of Harden, Tyrese Haliburton and Jrue Holiday are on the All-Star Game East team.
