He can do well in the right spot but probably a bad mix in ny. If he can't handle the pressure in philly it probably won't go well here. I'll take the ham sandwich

If he just cost the ham sandwich, I'm ok with it. No need to part with anything else. Meaning if he sucks, he gets cut.

Spoiler:
What?!?!?
I've gained a little weight. I could stand to spare a sandwich.

Hornets can be really strong team this season, they were pretty good past season and have added alot of talent plus a year more experience for LaMelo so wouldn't surprise me if they are in the mix for HCA.

You never know with that fat sack of quality journalism. I heard he ate Rachel Nichols as retribution to the woke ESPN execs.

It sounds like Philly has to trade Simmons. $16 million in October and sit versus $33 million and play. It's not his job to fix his trade value. What an **** whose technically correct.

Philly is in a cold war. They should move on and gain shooting before they get nothing.

Is Patrick Beverly still moveable? Malk Beasly and Beverly works. Ben Simmons brings a lot to the table but 6ers need to add different things to their rotation. Maybe they get a pick.

Simmons and Curry for Hield, T.Thompson, and Bagley III or Simmons for Heild and T.Thompson both work. As long the long as the 76ers keep Tyrese Maxey and Shake Milton they should take a leap of faith on these type of deals.

I think if you were committed to playing Julius as a 5 he would fit a lot clearer into our core because you, in theory, would have 4 guys around him who can make an open catch and shoot. But as long as Mitch and Noel are going to be a massive part of this team's rotation, Ben doesn't make much sense here and I don't see Thibs sacrificing his coveted rim protection just to fit him into what would still be somewhat of a clunky fit for him.

I will say though, I think we would easily become the best defensive team in the league if we had Mitch and Ben on the same team which would be cool

She really pissed me off over the years with her Knicks coverage. She was just an entertainer following the trends. I just think ESPN is a bunch of try hards. Bunch of crack heads from New England who I give no credit too because if it wasn't for the hot-mic Rachel would still be there. Good for Maria Taylor to leave.
