Harden posted on his Instagram story a simple response:
«The lack of respect,» he wrote.
To Harden’s credit, his numbers this season with the Sixers are very similar to what he’s been putting up in previous seasons. Harden is averaging 21.4 points, 11 assists and 6.4 rebounds.
Harden’s 11.0 assists would be leading the NBA, however, he is not among the leaders because he has only played in 56.5% of the Sixers’ games (34).
For a player to be eligible for the Stat Leaders list, they must have played at least 70% of the games.
