James Harden revealed that he is not surprised Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving left the Brooklyn Nets.

In his brief time with the team, he quickly saw the “dysfunction” within the organization and asked to be traded.

Although he did not specify the reasons for the issues, he felt there were internal problems within the Nets.

After the 76ers' 101-98 victory, he stated that he did not look like the crazy one and did not want to deal with the issues, choosing to play basketball and have fun.

When Harden was traded to the 76ers in 2022, Durant and Irving were still with the Nets.

However, one year later, they are both gone, with Durant being traded to the Phoenix Suns and Irving to the Dallas Mavericks.

The Nets were a championship favorite when Harden arrived, but they lost in the second round of the playoffs and struggled in the 2021-22 season.

Harden's interest seemed to wane when he was forced to carry a team that had to play with unproven players around him.

He asked to leave, and the Nets sent him to the 76ers in a package for Ben Simmons.

Harden did not say if the Nets’ problems started with the difficulty of relying on Irving.

He said it was part of life, and everyone is now in a better place.
