Joel Embiid, NBA Twitter react to Sixers star James Harden’s All-Star snub

The Philadelphia 76ers will have representation for the 2023 All-Star game in Salt Lake City on Feb. 19 as Joel Embiid will be sent to his sixth straight All-Star game as a reserve. He probably should have been selected as a starter, but as long as he gets in, that’s all that truly matters.

However, James Harden was left off the 2023 All-Star game roster. The Beard, despite averaging 21.4 points, 11.0 assists, and 6.4 rebounds while shooting 39.4% from dep, was left off the roster. It ended a streak of 10 straight years of being named an All-Star in Harden’s career. The last time he missed the mid-season showcase was in 2012 as a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The complete list of All-Star reserves were: Embiid, Jaylen Brown, Bam Adebayo, Julius Randle, DeMar DeRozan, Jrue Holiday, and Tyrese Haliburton. DeRozan and Holiday are the two who are getting some heat for being selected over Harden.

Embiid and the rest of NBA Twitter were set ablaze after Harden’s snub as they reacted in shock:
