Sixers’ Tobias Harris Crushes ‘Keyboard Thug’ in Twitter Beef
Philadelphia 76ers star Tobias Harris received much praise for playing tight defense during last year’s playoffs. Now he’s wiping out the “keyboard thugs” who gossip on Twitter during the off-season.
Harris let her personality shine this summer, from tackling math equations tease the brain to mess with Boban Marjonovic. He even went face-blind (in a good way) during a social media mix-up. It’s fun to watch.
And the most gratifying comment was made in response to a brave troll who offered Harris a contract. He will pay about $77 million over the next two seasons, which has motivated a sarcastic fan Call it a “non-negotiable contract” before asking: “How much is that player worth?” Well, Harris has his answer, and it’s a good one:
The original tweet was quickly deletedbut the damage was done and the screenshot was taken.
Harris made sure to keep the conversation going so everyone could take note of the unprovoked attack. “Keyboard thugs” so you can’t escape.

Harris ‘Very likely’ to return next season
Harris may be rolling with punches on Twitter, but the commercial rumors are very real. He was mentioned in every possible transaction that it started to feel personal. While it is true that the Sixers may have called around and assessed the market for Harris, they never pulled the trigger. He’s still on the pass list all the nonsense.
According to Liberty Ballers’ Paul Hudrick, Harris is “most likely” back next season. He wrote:
The veteran forward is said to have enjoyed being here and the whole team loves how he adapts to his role – focusing on defense, capture and shooting – when playing alongside James Harden. The Sixers also viewed Harden’s decision to opt out and sign a more team-friendly deal as an opportunity to add players rather than subtract them.
Sixers set to open Preseason vs Brooklyn
There’s a good chance the Sixers could see old friend Ben Simmons again in their pre-season opener. The Brooklyn Nets are scheduled to host Philadelphia at Barclay’s Center on October 3 at 7:30 p.m. according to a press release.
It’s always been a crap story about whether star players are a good fit for showpiece games; however, Simmons hasn’t competed in over a year. He can use practice. That’s assuming the former Sixers diva has fully recovered from a back injury and mental health issues.
Simmons’ presence will raise another interesting question: will the Sixers play their starting role? Joel Embiid might want to be on the field for that game just for fun. And James Harden may want to show everyone that his hamstring is back to normal. Just keep an eye on a few things for the next three months.
“I’m looking for an unbelievable season,” Harden told The Associated Press. “I don’t want to go out there and run around, being inefficient and looking old. I still want to be really, really, really good.”
