Good interview. Holmes and other players have made noticeable progress. Holmes dunks everything and plays very good defense. If he can mold his game into a stretch 4 type or small ball 5, he is definitely a keeper. Also, Covington, Stauskus, TLC, and Saric made huge improvements. The coaches should be given credit. Midrange game improvements were obvious for them. Instead of getting awkward offensive fouls, now you see them taking 10 foot pull ups. Many have started using step backs to create space for better 3s and General ball movement improved. Anyway, with more talent, the team should benefit greatly with the extra playing time those players got last year.

So Paul George is the reason Carmelo Anthony struggled on defense all these years...

Does anyone really say that he can't shoot?

I mean that was a concern when he was drafted, but he has improved a lot since then. I see a player that can definitely shoot. He just needs to continue to work on it.

I think he eventually shoots 35-40% from 3 on real volume.

It will be interesting to see where Saric fits in the rotation. He seems to have a good in and out side game, he easily overpowers most PFs. He would be a good playmaker for the 2nd unit.

How good can the Sixers be if they somehow pickup Bradley?? Competition between Fultz, Bradley, Redick and TCL would be a huge upgrade over last season.

Bradley for Holmes
Boston gets a promising PF and cap relief, Sixers get a defensive SG.

Was KJ on the downside of his career then? Still better than Hornacek...the Sixers traded so horribly in the 80-90's.

Iverson being Iverson again...sad story.

Good to know just exactly how overmatched and dim witted Harold Katz was.

Then again, with the Shawn Bradley fiasco, I think we all had a pretty good idea.

According to that report, they are 80% credible, 20% fake news.

KJ was in his prime at that time, but he was injury prone and missed a lot of time.

He was an amazing player though. Definitely much better than Hornacek.

That could be a lot of writing!

People think rookies don't win games, but Simmons and Fultz aren't typical rookies. Both are very skilled and should fit well together.

Embiid, Simmons, and Fultz should be a very competitive group. They have some really good role players that should help, too. 44 wins or more seems very possible.
