On Lebron, of course.

Hard to stick anyone on LeBron with fatter Jonah Hill clone Brian Windhorst firmly attached to Lebron's ****.

I hate to see KD injury, it was devastating.
But after that injury, and seeing Raptors one game away from championship, we HAVE to run it back. I will even say this:
If we do this things:
- bring back Jimmy
- bring back Tobias
- bring back Redick
- brick back Scott
- solid FA singings using MLE and vet contarcts
- Embiid to play 60-65 games due to load management

We are going to be title favorites. Seeing what's going in this playoffs makes me feel good about #runitback, and that Joshua Harris is willing to pay for that.

And if Kawhi stays in TOR, that's the top 2 FAs off the board for summer 19. Leaves the rest of the league with all that cap space fighting over and possibly overpaying Tier 2 guys. I'd rather keep the Tier 2 guys we know than reset the dial and risk coming out empty handed.

I wonder if they would want to arrange a S&T with DLO with us? Then they can use that same “above the cap” money that they would use for him on Toby, and then still have money to sign someone else. We would also be in the same boat.

Unless it doesn’t work that way? Or would the money be too far off? (While I’m not a huge DLO fan, I think his offense game would really open things up)

I don’t think Tobias showing interest in his hometown team is the same as he plans to leave.

I mean, it hints at something. I don't really believe it, but this is in the hypothetical that he does.

Neither of these players will bring a championship. Neither of them has a winning DNA, and neither of them would make any difference on our roster.

Ok I was very vocal against us going for Kawhi. I am an idiot, and know nothing.

Better just to watch the game and shut up..

Actually, it’s okay that we did not went for Kawhi. It would probably cost us Simmons and who knew Durant would get injured. A healthy GS would win the title. Kawhi is leaving Toronto, so was a huge gamble.

I say the chances of both Butler and Harris staying in Philly are higher then Kawhi staying in Toronto. So we can win our own title in the next 5 years.

Is Klay a possibility for us in FA now after the ACL tear?
I don’t see Golden State paying two guys max contracts that won’t play at all (KD) and the majority of the year in Klay, especially going into a new arena.
Seems like GS is gonna shake things up and would you sign Klay for a playoff run if they let him walk?

Who are we going to fill the roster out with if we resign both Jimmy, tobi and even Reddick?

Would be nice to get some encouraging Sixers rumors today.

Thanks for the nice words. I also thought it would be a rental, but now watching this final ... man if only we had him :(

Until players actually start signing, expect 95% of the “good news” to be for the LA and NY teams.

I wouldn’t be stunned to see a story soon about how Kawhi is still considering LA.
