The Philadelphia 76ers have been all sorts of dangerous since acquiring James Harden from the Brooklyn Nets in a trade centered around Ben Simmons. Harden has been a perfect fit alongside Joel Embiid, as the Sixers continue their ascent heading into the NBA Playoffs.

The Sixers beat the Indiana Pacers on Tuesday night, 131-122 to tie the Boston Celtics for the top spot in the Atlantic Division. Harden had a double-double of 11 points and 14 assists, allowing Embiid to dominate anew with 45 points and 13 rebounds.

But while many have praised Harden’s willingness to cede to Embiid, ESPN analyst Kendrick Perkins doesn’t agree. He even recently called The Beard a “liability” for the Sixers and used a rap-referenced analogy, per the report of the New York Post.

“He’s supposed to be there to take pressure off of Joel Embiid, and when you look at James Harden and you look at all the guys that he has had, all the superstars that he has played with, he has had more features than DJ Khaled when he had Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Migos, Drake and everyone across the board.”

Perkins blurted his observation when the Sixers had a three-game skid last week, even though Harden put up strong numbers. But the Sixers are 13-6 whenever the former MVP plays, so calling him a liability isn’t accurate—almost laughable, even.

Perkins, however, doubled down on his hot take on Harden, giving a warning to Embiid and the Sixers.

“It didn’t work out with Dwight Howard, it didn’t work out with Chris Paul, it didn’t work out with Russell Westbrook. You went to the Brooklyn Nets, it didn’t work out with KD (Kevin Durant) and Kyrie (Irving). Now you’re (Harden) with Embiid.”
