Video: NBA On TNT Crew Roasts James Harden During All-Star Draft

By far, the biggest deal of Thursday's NBA Trade Deadline was the trade between the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers.  The 76ers acquired James Harden and Paul Millsap while the Nets acquired Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, Andre Drummond, and two first-round picks.  The trade came after several reports emerged this week alleging that James Harden wanted to be traded - specifically to the Philadelphia 76ers where he could then team up with potential league MVP Joel Embiid.  

While many fans and analysts will spend hours debating which team won the trade, the NBA had other matters to attend to, as the NBA All-Star Draft was set to take place to decide which players will be drafted to each team ahead of the NBA All-Star Game.  Team Captains LeBron James and Kevin Durant were set to go back and forth picking from the pool of players before there aren't any left on board, which sounds innocent enough until you add the TNT crew to the mix.  

Kevin Durant is the now-former teammate of James Harden, one of the All-Star reserves available to be selected, and Charles Barkley and company made sure that the awkward dial was cranked all the way up as they made hilarious comments throughout the broadcast regarding the situation.  Durant does his best to keep a straight face throughout, but even KD has to crack up by the end of the segment when Charles suggests that James Harden's hamstring was magically healed by the recent trade.

Check out the entire video below:
LeBron did his part in putting fuel on the fire by purposely leaving James on the board, and watching Kevin Durant's face as he slowly breaks as the crew's jokes become more and more blatant is one of the funniest things you will see in sports this year. 

Stay tuned for James Harden's response.
