Joel Embiid isn’t one to sugarcoat things, and he was pretty honest when speaking about James Harden after the team’s brutal game 6 loss to the Miami Heat.

On Thursday night, Harden went scoreless in the second half of the team’s elimination game vs. Miami.

While Harden blamed the team’s offense for his poor play, Embiid implied that Harden just isn’t the same player that he used to be.

“Obviously, since we got him, everybody expected the Houston James Harden, but that’s not who he is anymore. He’s more of a playmaker.”

Embiid went on to say to compliment former teammate Jimmy Butler who currently plays for the Heat.

Fans had some interesting reactions to Embiid’s comment about Harden.
