CAMDEN, New Jersey. Philadelphia 76ers star James Harden has struggled with a aching hamstring that has kept him on the floor for a bit, but after a full summer of training and going to the gym, he’s ready to make a comeback. to be earlier.
Harden averaged 21 points, 10.5 assists and 7.1 rebounds in 21 games, which are really solid numbers. There aren’t many players in this league who can do what Harden does every night, but the efficiency hasn’t been up to his standards.
As a six, he only shot 40.2% from the floor and 32.6% from deep. A hamstring injury has delayed him a bit and is something he needs to fix to help Philadelphia succeed and move forward.
Over the summer, Beard was able to work out and lose some weight, and on Monday’s media day, he opened up about his workout regimen.
“It’s a diet,” Harden said. “It’s a complete rest, and then for me, I think it’s the strengthening of my muscles and the increase in muscle mass that I always had, it’s just that for the last year and a half I haven’t been healthy enough to work properly, for example. I’m used to. This summer has been huge for me in that aspect. Hill running and weight lifting were important and added skill on the court.”
As Harden prepares for his first full season with the Sixers, Beard wants to improve year after year with the team. He is expected to obviously win the title, but he also wants to make sure he can still be James Harden.
“Just win as many championships as you can here,” he added. “This is the goal. Just going through what I’ve been through in the last few years, I think you should just take it one year at a time. Just to make sure that I can do everything I do individually, and then make sure that my individual goals align with the team goals and our goals as a whole. I’m taking this year and trying to do what we all expect and then we’ll go from there.”
