In new 76er star guard James Harden’s first two games — wins over the Wolves and Knicks — fans couldn’t be more thrilled.
As Joel Embiid accurately points out, they’ve been ” unstoppable” for other teams to guard, and this is only the beginning.
Harden has brought the team a legit point guard they haven’t had the first 54 games of the season.
The new dynamic duo torched the Knicks Sunday in MSG 125-109 behind The Beard’s 29 points, 16 assists, 10 rebounds, and 5 steals.
Embiid was just as dominant padding his league scoring with 37 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 blocked shots — it looks as if the chemistry between the two star players is just fine two games in.
The naysayers will still balk at the Sixers tremendous acquisition of Harden, but no one can deny the 76ers chances to compete and win the NBA title come playoff time,.
It’s still early but the results have been an enormous success so far.
