When James Harden revealed he had “no pressure” on his shoulders ahead of getting into the playoffs with the Philadelphia 76ers, many questioned his attitude. The last is Charles Barkley, who hilariously trolled the beard for the same take. It’s safe to say that the Hall of Famer was just a reminder to Harden that he plays for one of the NBA’s most notorious cities.
Given the Sixers’ fan base, they don’t hold back to applaud their heroes and also condemn those who disappoint. A case that should certainly be learned from Ben Simmons. However, check out how Barkley made James Harden goofy for the same take.
What was Charles Barkley’s opinion?
Hearing those thoughts that James Harden wasn’t feeling any pressure ahead of the playoff series, Barkley didn’t hold back and reminded Harden that he plays for a Sixers team in Philadelphia — a city notorious for its unforgiving fans.
“James Harden, you said not to feel any pressure? Man, you better think again. The people of Philadelphia aren’t going to make you go out there and play bad.” Barkley shared while he couldn’t help but laugh, pro Kyle Neubeck from The Philly Voice.
If there’s anyone who knows how difficult it is to play in Philly, there’s none better than Charles Barkley. He spent most of his career with the Sixers, and while he was a star for the team during his tenure, they failed to reach that promised land.
That being said, if it works out, James Harden has a shot at winning his first NBA championship alongside Joel Embiid. As the latter could also be the MVP for the 2021-22 season, Embiid’s goalscoring prowess has haunted every defensive unit. Additionally, his passion has encouraged his teammates such as Tyrese Maxey, Tobias Harris and D. Green to perform better in each consecutive game.
Will Harden be trolled on the global stage again? Or will the beard come out for redemption with the Sixers? Remains to be seen
