A recent flat-out testimony from Philly star guard James Harden had stunned the entire NBA universe and drew much criticism from Shannon Sharpe, who believes the Sixers’ marquee is acting irresponsibly.

We all know what a great player James Harden is in the field of basketball, whenever his team needs a quick goal from the center or off field goal, he scores it for them without hesitation with his quick backspacing and separation techniques . But according to Harden, the playoffs will be what he’s going to do for the team, what he’s been doing all season.

After the 76ers’ team practice, James Harden was interviewed by ESPN’s Tim Bontemps, in which he said: “Pressure, no. I feel good, I’m ready to mature. There’s nothing to it.”

Well, his testimony might pump the team up, but if we delve deep into the records, it doesn’t appear that Harden is the type to handle the pressure. The former MVP has played in 137 playoff games over the course of his career, in which he averaged 23.3 points and 6.0 assists. While these are some good numbers, if we take a closer look at history, we find that most of his high-score games take place in low-stakes games, which masks his poor performance in the high-stakes games, to which even Zach Lowe pointed out in his recent podcast.

When the whole world criticizes an NBA player, there’s no doubt that the Undisputed crew will hold back. In the final episode of the podcast, host Shannon Sharpe slammed James Harden for his risqué comment. He said, “How not to feel the pressure when you know what’s expected? The Sixers thought you were the missing piece. They sent 3 guys out to bring you in.”

Sharpe pointed out that the Philadelphia 76ers got him to fill the missing piece to win the championship for the franchise, and when Harden isn’t feeling the pressure it means he’s not taking the situation seriously as a team. This has become a really risky comment for the beard star. From here we can imagine how tough the time and question will be in front of him if he doesn’t bring glory to the Sixers.
