James Harden takes young 76ers players to club after loss (Video)

Written by Doug Rush

New city, same old habits for James Harden.

After the Philadelphia 76ers 99-82 loss to the Miami Heat, Harden was seen in a club with Tyrese Maxey and George’s Niang.

Harden didn’t play in the game because he was “resting his hamstring,” but clearly being on a new team and in a new city will not change Harden’s partying habits. And getting younger players involved might not be good for them or maybe he is trying to gain trust with the players? Either way people are saying that it isn’t the best look.

The 76ers acquired Harden at the trade deadline last month and it took Harden a few weeks to make his debut from a hamstring issue. The 76ers are the second best team in the Eastern Conference at 40-24.
