Things are getting out of hand for the Philadelphia 76ers.
James Harden has officially gone too far by calling out Daryl Morey by name, stating that he’s a liar and that he will never play for an organization that he’s a part of ever again.
That’s why NBA analyst Marcus Spears believes things are personal at this point.
He explained that Harden’s relationship with Morey goes way back, adding that it has been quite beneficial for both parties.
"This was personal. … This is more than just basketball at this point."

Spears pointed out the fact that it was Morey who believed in him and made him the focal point of a franchise, adding that Harden has made over $300 million dollars as a result of that.
People also claimed that Harden’s desire to go to Philadelphia had plenty to do with Morey being there, which is why this is even lower and more mind-blowing.
The Sixers — just like every other team in the league — have been reluctant to offer him a max deal, which is why he is reportedly upset now.
Harden is still set to make north of $35 million in his age 34 season despite having some major blunders in two close-out games in the playoffs.
And even despite all that, Morey and the Sixers still want him there when no other team seems interested in trading for him.NEXT: Reporter Shares Daryl Morey's Reaction On James Harden's Criticism
