The hilarious reactions from Sixers fans to the mega-trade in Harden originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
On Wednesday, the noise of a James Harden deal with the Sixers reached a cacophony. It seemed like a Harden-for-Ben Simmons was imminent, falling any minute.

The Sixers stay the same, but what about the team's fans? They took it pretty hard because their hopes were so high.
