Even if MPJ never plays another minute in the NBA, the skeptics are still wrong. Drafting Jerome was still a colossal blunder by our front office. If nothing else, we could have sent MPJ in the PG trade and kept Shai. Plus Jerome was a terrible player regardless of who else was still on the board at the time. Don't forget that we also drafted him over Donte DiVincenzo, Kevin Huerter, Grayson Allen, Jalen Brunson, and a number of other players who - while not having MPJ's theoretical ceiling - are still useful in the NBA (unlike Jerome).

Doc managed to lose to the Timberwolves with Embiid playing, KAT fouled out, and the refs giving them every call. The Sixers are now 10-10, barely above the cut line for the play-ins if the season ended today.

Klay Thompson returns today. One doesn't have to like the Warriors, but I can definitely appreciate getting talent like that back on the court and healthy.

Clippers win, Wizards fight

Sources said Harrell became upset with Caldwell-Pope for not passing him the basketball on a play before the first half concluded, and the two started jawing during the walk to the locker room. As the two exchanged words, Harrell and Caldwell-Pope took swings toward each other — with neither connecting — and became entangled before teammates separated them, sources said.

Well, glad the Clippers are fighting for wins and not fighting each other :lol:

On the Jalen and Jacoby podcast, Jalen Rose said Trez was grieving the death of his mother. Not sure what time frame that was but he suggested it affected his play and availability.

Hawks didn't want to pay Reddish.

So many young wings on that team but they didn't expect to struggle like they have.

SHAQ:

"I stay on big guys because I care about them. I want them to play a certain way, I want them to play at a certain level. The difference between [Embiid] and his soft partner [Simmons] is, he can take criticism without being a crybaby and he still wants to play.

"Me and Charles, we've been on [Embiid] and we stay on him. We told him to his face what he needs to do. He didn't cry, he didn't say 'I want to get traded', he didn't complain about mistreatment. And that's the difference. That's why I like and respect him. The other guy, I don't respect him.

"I've been thinking about it - you're missing a whole season because they asked your coach a question, 'Can we win without you?', and your coach gave a funny answer? That should tell you, you need to get in the summer time and go work on your game."
