Also, Green and Temple didn't cost TWO 1sts and two 2nds and Shamet.
Can Green and Temple score 20 a game on 60% true shooting while creating their own offense and shooting well over 40% from three at volume?
We paid a star package for Tobias Harris because he's playing like a star right now.
He's expiring, and this is a career year. Coincidence? Tobias isn't a star. He is also not good on defense, whereas Green is.
Also; the Sixers have Embiid who wants numbers to try and win MVP, Butler wants touches to put up stats and get paid, and Ben wants numbers to try and get All-NBA so he can get a Rose extension in the summer. So... let's go grab another guy who needs the ball and wants to put up numbers to get paid. That should go over well.
