The @Oklahoma City Thunder are the only franchise in NBA history to select a future MVP in three straight drafts:
✅ Kevin Durant (2007)
✅ Russell Westbrook (2008)
✅ James Harden (2009)
In fact, no other franchise has even selected a future MVP in back-to-back drafts. pic.twitter.com/Ynq6enOxHn3:01 PM

Here’s what Woj said on SC:
“James Harden is headed toward opting in to that 47 million player option, and then extending by perhaps as many as two more years, at a significant number with the Sixers. Likely something short of a max contract, but still a significant commitment” – 12:19 PM

When the Sixers got James Harden, a family friend got my dad this beard and surprised him with it at a dinner in Naples, FL. Suffice it to say, he wore it the whole dinner, in 80-degree weather.

More on this storyline

We caught up with the Philadelphia head coach as he was leaving E Baldi in Bev Hills this week … and he told us he’s sure Harden, who the 76ers acquired this past season, has a massive new contract coming his way. “Huge deal,” Rivers said. Doc added that he’s “excited” about coaching JH, explaining, “I love him.” -via TMZ.com / June 22, 2022
Kevin O’Connor on James Harden: I’ve been told that (Sixers) ownership wants him to opt into the $46.9 million deal for the 22/23 season, which no surprise. I’ve been told Morey he wants that to be a three-year deal. -via Spotify / June 19, 2022
