The Philadelphia 76ers vs. James Harden continues!
Our Tom West wrote about the NBA launching an investigation into what led Harden to call Daryl Morey a “liar” while entertaining a group of fans in China.
There has been much speculation as far as what kind of off-the-record “deal” Harden and Morey may or may not have made last offseason.
Fans and some prominent players (Danny Green and Patrick Beverley) have discussed the possibility of something shady going down. Is that what led Harden to say such things about his BFF? Well apparently not, as Harden shared something different with the NBA.

Finally, comments made by newly signed guard Patrick Beverly poses more headaches for a team just looking to improve a seemingly toxic atmosphere.
