As much as I hate Lowrys antics it would be cool to see him win a title.

Maybe we need less people in the interior so Embiid doesn't get swarmed.

We don't want more, but he needs to become more efficient there.

How the hell Raps got a far better player at #27 than our "generational" #1 pick?..

The fact that we had #24 and #26 in that draft makes me depressed even more.

Because the draft is difficult to predict.

And thats putting it lightly. Nurse's story about how Siakam said after a previous playoff exit that he "needs to learn how to shoot threes" and proceeded to dedicate his entire offseason to become a proficient shooter.... that takes dedication that you're not going to discover in a few workouts and interviews.

Masai, even though he is our POBO, is also the main international scout for us. This is in addition to Dan Tolzman, our domestic scout/Assissant GM/VP of Player Personnel.

We are all also hopeful for Giannis in a couple years, due to Masai's connections to his family.

Hmm, wondering if we will hear a story about Simmons saying he "needs to learn how to shoot threes" and that he will dedicate his entire offseason to it?

OMG. Partying with whatever girls is not a problem. And that is not our **** business. There is enough time for improving his game even with all that. Whether he truly wants it is a question, so we'll see, but stop with that nonsence please.

The Sixers would have beaten the Bucks in 6, just like the Raptors did, the Sixers took the Raptors to the absolute brink. The Raptors would have lost to the Sixers in 5 if it wasn't for Kawhi.


TOR beat on Philly by like 40 pts in game 5. Everyone thought it was over in 6. The only reason it went 7 is because I think Kawhi dominated the ball too much playing hero ball, much like in games 1 and 2 in Milwaukee and their other players were just spectating.

It is tough to say team x beat team y so team z that lost to team y can be beat by team x. TOR at the end of the day was better and I don’t think Simmons is mature or good enough defensively to contain Giannis a top the key going downhill without fouling out himself. I doubt Philly shuts down Giannis and especially when it comes to preventing him from kicking the ball out when they collapse on him. TOR’s length on the wings (both Kawhi and Siakam have 7’3 wing span) was the key to neutering Giannis. Butler and Tobias are a far cry even if they had Embiid protecting the rim.

GS has had 6 possessions in a row where they looked like the Sixers really bad 3 in a row. Garbage basketball at its finest.

I think for years he was just seen as a good player on a bad team while he was here, it’s nice that the rest of the world gets to see why we as Sixers fans propped him up. He’s been clutch for GS for years now.

Iggy and Curry are really two of my all time favorites players. That was great seeing him hit that three at the end. Gonna miss him when he hangs it up, Iggy is the man!

Didn't look far better last night. He has his moments but like Ben, he's too inconsistent to be far better than anyone.

Idk, for me he still was far better than Ben. It's painful to my eyes to see how Ben literally kills offence on every possession.

And Siakam is even better at finishong at the rim, which should be bread and butter for Simmons.

Hate feelings aside.

Does Fultz look dumb to you? This goes further than just what he posts at social media but also with his interview. Like the one where he told Tmac he wanted to be MVP on his rookie season and the one with TJ “can’t afford it”.
“Before you argue with someone, ask yourself, is that person even mature enough to grasp the concept of different perspectives? Because if not, there is absolutely no point.”

This is what annoyed me about trading for the pick without even having an interview with the guy. Obviously Boston didnt like the way it went with him.

But to answer your question, yes, even with being 19 years old at the time his mannerisms and composure was never that of a confident person.

Yeah. But DRose also dont seem like a smart guy to me. Some players look and sound dumb. Another guy is Kawhi.
