James Harden and Joel Embiid teamed up only a few months back, but their camaraderie is already exciting for the Philadelphia 76ers fans. Having reached the Eastern Conference Semis, they will be hoping to make a deeper run next season. Building chemistry is a huge part of the process, and they seem on their way to doing that.

Both were seen dancing and vibing to Meek Mill at a party recently. They were joined by the 76ers newest recruit, PJ Tucker. Meek, a Philly fan, called them on stage while performing at a party hosted by billionaire businessman and 76ers fan, Michael Rubin. It was an all-white affair, but it is easy recognizing the 76ers stars.

While Joel Embiid had arguably his best individual season to date, the rest of the team didn’t support him much. Except for the emergence of Tyrese Maxey, the Philadelphia 76ers fans didn’t have many things to enjoy. Embiid led the league in scoring by averaging 30.6 points. He became the first center to do so after more than two decades.
