Four years ago, the Philadelphia Eagles used Meek Mill's "Dreams and Nightmares" as the anthem for their first Super Bowl title in franchise history.
After the Sixers reportedly acquired future Hall of Famer James Harden in a trade from the Brooklyn Nets Thursday, Meek Mill is apparently eager to be part of another championship run in Philadelphia.
The rapper and activist didn't mince words on Twitter shortly after word broke that the Sixers had landed the nine-time All-Star:
Harden, 32, is averaging 22.5 points per game in 2021-22, along with over 10 assists per contest. One of the greatest scorers in NBA history will reportedly exercise his $47.3 million player option for the 2022-23 season as part of the trade.
Harden will join Joel Embiid, last year's NBA MVP runner-up. Embiid, who is averaging a league-leading 29.4 points per game this season, is currently the odds-on favorite to win this year's NBA MVP.
Embiid and Harden will form the most dominant one-two punch that the Sixers have had since Julius Erving and Moses Malone. It may allow the Sixers to capture their first title since 1982-83, when Erving and Malone were the faces of the team.
