On February 10, at the transfer deadline for the 2021–22 season of the National Basketball Association (NBA)the league was rocked by a trade that sent james harden to Philadelphia 76ers and Ben Simmons and Seth Curry to Brooklyn Nets.
Thus, two new Big 3s formed by Harden, Joel Embid and Tyrese Maxey in Philly, and Simmons, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving in Brooklyn. But the one who has given something to talk about is the first mentioned, who has already won two games convincingly.
133 to 102 was the result in the trio’s debut against minnesota timberwolves. Embiid had 34 points, Maxeya second-year base that is becoming more important every day in the franchise, 28and The Beard finished with 27. Then they dispatched New York Knicks by 125 to 109 with 37 from JoJo, 21 from Tyrese and 29 from the brand new escort.
