James Harden’s situation with the Philadelphia 76ers could get tough to watch.
The former league MVP is reportedly adamant about leaving the team, and he’s willing to go the extra mile to do so.
Harden publicly called Sixers executive Daryl Morey — who happened to be his close friend and the one who got him most of his money — a liar, stating that he would never play for an organization that he’s a part of.
With that in mind, sports analyst Chris “Mad Dog” Russo completely unleashed his wrath against Harden in the latest edition of “First Take.”
"This guy is poison. … I wouldn’t want him anywhere near me if I was a professional organization because he is not a winner."

He claimed that he’s not a winner and that no organization should want him after all he’s done to force his way out of his teams, especially considering the fact that he’s been fairly inconsistent in the playoffs.
Truth be told, it’s hard to make a case for Harden after all he’s done to get traded multiple times over the years, especially considering the plethora of superstar teammates he’s had and how badly he’s played every single time the season is on the line.
This has become a trend with Harden, not an outlier or a fluke.
He’s not getting any younger, and he wants way more money, but he may not be worth all the drama at this point in his career .NEXT: Paul Pierce Shares His Opinion On James Harden, Daryl Morey Saga
