He has made a point to specifically tell people that he’s taking things very seriously and is intent on helping his team go all the way next season.
Harden is certain he can lead Philly all the way to the Finals and he’s going to put in the work to make that happen.

The latest video of Harden during the offseason proves that, at least for now, this isn’t just talk.
Harden was shown moving around the court with ease, passing with expertise, and taking impressive and challenging shots with authority.
He certainly is talking the talking and walking the walk right now.
Has Harden really turned a page and are we looking at a future MVP candidate?
Harden The Hero
If he continues to play as he is in that practice video, it’ll be a major turnaround for the star.
He hasn’t played with much drive over the last few seasons and even those devoted to him can admit that he’s at times seemed uninterested in really committing.
But he is seemingly happy with his new team, the 76ers, and he is apparently tired of losing in the postseason.
He is one of the most talked-about players of this generation but Harden still hasn’t won an NBA Finals.
Harden is older now and he can feel his chances slipping away and that’s part of the reason why he’s stepping up.
Additionally, it’s been some time since he’s played with someone as capable and talented as Joel Embiid.
All the pieces for great success are there, they just need to come together.
Harden is ready to take that next step.
