James Harden for Ben Simmons trade has NBA fans going nuts on Twitter

The Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets were able to pull off the blockbuster trade involving James Harden and Ben Simmons on Thursday. 

WIth less than two hours to spare, the Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks just flipped the NBA upside down with the biggest deal possible ahead of the trade deadline. That’s right, James Harden is on his way to Philadelphia, while Ben Simmons is Brooklyn-bound.

This trade had been in the works for a little while now, but the two sides were finally able to get things across the finish line. As you might have been able to guess, Twitter is collectively going insane right now after Shams Charania broke the news.

James Harden got his wish with a trade to the Philadelphia 76ers

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Harden was hoping for a trade to the 76ers, but he didn’t want to formally request one due to fear of public backlash. Well, Harden ended up getting his wish after all and he’ll now be ready to suit up with Joel Embiid.

On one side of things, 76ers fans are jacked up over the news. They’ve now got NBA Finals dreams now that Harden will be making his way to town. For the Brooklyn supporters, you already know they’re pretty annoyed with Harden.

Last year, he forced his way out of Houston and ended up with the Nets. The thought was that Harden would be able to ball out and help this team get to the NBA Finals. Instead, Brooklyn blew it and the Milwaukee Bucks ended up winning it all.

Harden will now have yet another fresh start, this time with Philly. No one in Brooklyn will be wishing him much success the rest of the way.
