NBA Twitter could not believe what James Harden was wearing during the Philadelphia 76ers’ game against the Boston Celtics on Tuesday, Feb. 15.
The Philadelphia 76ers pulled off the biggest blockbuster trade of the NBA deadline. The team acquired James Harden from the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Ben Simmons and more. Harden was officially introduced by the 76ers on Tuesday, where it was revealed he would wear the No. 1.
Harden was inactive for Philadelphia’s game against the Boston Celtics later that night. Even though he was not participating, he made waves throughout social media for the outfit he wore for the game.
NBA Twitter could not get over James Harden’s outfit
Plenty of thoughts on Harden’s outfit. On “Inside the NBA,” Dwyane Wade said that Harden was wearing a “pea-suit,” which is a peacoat and a suit connected.
Harden started off the season with the Brooklyn Nets, who acquired him last season from the Houston Rockets. He was a part of the super team alongside Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. Obviously, Durant has dealt with injury issues while Irving is not playing in home games due to New York City’s vaccine mandate. The trio played together in just 16 games.
As the deadline approached, Harden told the Nets that he would like a trade off of the team and he would prefer a move to the 76ers. Of course, team president Daryl Morey has a relationship with Harden dating back to their days in Houston.
The official deal saw the 76ers receive Harden and Paul Millsap and the Nets receive Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, a 2022 first-rounder (unprotected) and a 2027 first-round selection (protected).
Harden may not have played his first game with the 76ers just yet, but he is already generating attention on social media with his wardrobe.
