I’m reading the tea leaves and the tea leaves are saying James Harden is fucking coming to Philadelphia. Now we probably have to part with Ben Simmons. Or do we? Daryl Morey traded a first rounder to the Thunder in the year 2025! We might not even be a planet by 2025. Basketball could be played on Mars or some space station Elon Musk launches into the sky by then. If anyone can make this work and keep their two all stars together it’s Daryl Morey. You think Daryl Morey is scared to negotiate with this guy?
First rule of thumb in negotiating: Tower over the man you’re negotiating with. As a tall guy you’re giving advantages others are not, including unwarranted respect. If you put Daryl and Tilman Fertitta on Tinder together, no background, no horoscope signs, but just height. Daryl is swiped right on 10/10 times.
Tilman Fertita doesn’t have a leg to stand on. James Harden probably won’t show up to training camp and instead party with Lil Baby in Vegas until he forces a trade.
I don’t care if James Harden comes to Philly 20 lbs overweight and six different STDs he incurred from women who chose their stage name based on the car they hope to buy one day. He’s never come into a season once in shape before, why start now. Have you never heard of playing yourself into shape? Shaq did it and he won 5 titles.
If I have to be honest I think you need to do the deal. It would suck to see your 24 year old All Star replaced by a 31 year old, albeit MVP candidate, player. But I’m a nobody. Luckily though we had a somebody on The Wooderboys Podcast who would do the deal. Take it away Godner.
