James Harden believes Sixers give him best shot at winning a title

When one looks at Philadelphia 76ers star James Harden’s career, one can see he has done everything a player can possibly accomplish in the NBA. He has won scoring titles, he has set records, he’s been named an All-Star numerous times, and he also has an MVP award under his belt.

The one and only thing missing from his resume is a championship.

He has come close. The 2018 Houston Rockets were one win away from the finals led by Harden and the 2021 Brooklyn Nets might have gotten there if Kevin Durant’s shoe size was a half foot smaller, but it doesn’t change the fact that he has come up short.

Now with the Sixers and with an elite big man in Joel Embiid, Harden is looking to finally win that elusive title. He told ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne that Philadelphia is his best chance.

That doesn’t mean that the road to a title will be easy. The Sixers will have to go through the Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks in order to just get to the finals, but Harden and co. are playing some excellent basketball at the moment. They will be looking to build to move toward the playoffs.
