The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t been as good this season as they were last year.
On Friday, 76ers star Tobias Harris admitted that the team has had chemistry issues this season.
Tobias Harris added this while on First Take this morning: “I’ll keep it real we haven't had the best chemistry throughout the whole year. It's took us a while to kind of get everyone together we battled injuries from the start to the end.” #Sixers

The Sixers currently hold the No. 6 seed in the Eastern Conference standings with a 39-26 record.
While the team’s record indicates moderate success, the 76ers had high expectations coming into the season. After all, they have two of the best young players in the league in All-Stars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.
Last postseason, Philadelphia nearly advanced to the Eastern Conference Finals. However, Kawhi Leonard’s iconic game-winner during Game 7 of the 2019 Eastern Conference semifinals disarrayed the Sixers.
Former 76ers veterans Jimmy Butler and J.J. Redick departed the franchise in the 2019 offseason.
Now, the Sixers are trying to move past their chemistry issues and prove to the league that they are legitimate contenders.
Harris, 27, is putting up 19.4 points, 6.8 boards and 3.2 assists per game this season.
The 2019-20 season is set to resume in late July in Orlando, Fla.
