Harden's Uncomfortable Top 10
The Opening Tip
Hello & Happy Almost Weekend - It's the Corner Three!
We need your help! We've got two and a half weeks to raise $7,400 more for Providence Animal Center to get to our goal.
October 21st is Bark In The Park, and you can still join the team if you want, and help us raise money on your own. Even if you're not part of the team, you can come out to join us at Rose Tree Park for the event.
Otherwise, donate what you can, to save the homeless animals. HOMELESS PUPPIES AND KITTIES.
Oh Yeah, The Sixers
Man...I don't fucking know, guys. Eh, maybe I do know, that JH is alot smarter and reasonable than we give him credit for and has little intention to give the Sixers back any more money albeit in the form of fines for not showing up. He still very much dislikes Daryl Morey and reports are that eh still plans on making a fuss about it all, and I'm not sure 6 hours in Fort Collins will change that so time will tell.

Spike's Corner... It's A Trap
Every week Spike or Mike will give you something that's on their mind. It's Spike's week, and he is talking about James Harden being in camp and in shape.
First of all, I'll be making my announcement about whether I'm watching the Sixers with Harden or not, tomorrow night at 7pm on our YouTube channel. Subscribe here.
They have tried to convince us that our long, national, James Harden nightmare is over yesterday, as the bearded magician (makes himself disappear in the playoffs) arrived in Colorado for Sixers training camp. Whew, there's a weight off my back.
There was all sorts of propaganda out there. Tobias Harris, bless his heart, was talking about James' attitude and energy. Harden was wearing his little shorts so his skinny legs can show to make it look like he's in great shape. He was running through drills like a normal basketball player who showed up at training camp on time and didn't opt into a contract with team he didn't want to play for and then go to China and call his boss a liar to a group of Chinese Children while demanding a trade to one specific team that doesn't even want him that much. It was all pretty wholesome.
But I'm pretty convinced it's all bullshit. On one hand, I'm sort of glad he's bullshitting. If everyone is finally playing along to make it seem like he's going to play normal for the Sixers to try and drive his value, good. I guess it would be productive for me to act like I'm buying it if I want him out of here, but I simply cannot do it.
If you remember correctly, when he wanted out of Houston in 2020, there was a moment when it appeared that he was going to just show up and play like James Harden. His first three games of that season: 44 points and 17 assists, 34 points and 8 assists, and 33 points and 7 assists. After a couple of weeks, he got tired of trying, his performance fell off a cliff, and he got traded.
Skinny legs James Harden at camp is a fucking TRAP.
I simply do not believe this is going to last very long. I also believe that Daryl Morey is privately hoping against hope that Harden will realize he likes being here, play normal, and forget he ever asked for a trade.
Chances are this is going to be long and fucked up. Chances are James Harden will be there opening night, go for like 28 and 20, the Sixers will beat the Bucks, and everyone will buy back in. I'm not. Everything about James Harden is a trap, and I'm not falling for it. Even if his legs are skinny.
Peace, Love and Process Bring on Atlanta - SAID!
