He is prob a top 50 player in the league. Our whole starting lineup might be.

He was #67 coming into last season. I thought he should have been higher.

"...what Richardson did best goes beyond the box score. According to Second Spectrum research, opposing players shot 41.6 percent when Richardson was the closest defender, tied for fifth best among 100 players to defend at least 700 shots last season. The only players with a lower percentage? Anthony Davis, Joel Embiid, Al Horford and Ben Simmons..."

That is genuinely insane that we have four of those players. Insane.

Another thing to think about is he hasn't played with anyone who draws anything close to the level of attention as Embiid on offense. He could thrive off that.

I think he could see the most clean looks he's ever seen as our primary perimeter scorer on the "Embiid Unit".

PG Neto
SG Richardson
SF Thybulle
PF Scott
CE Embiid

Let him run P&R with Embiid with the other 3 guys spacing the floor. Dump off to Embiid in the post as a fall back option.

Richardson on NBC6 South Florida, via NBC Sports Philadelphia:

Honestly, when I come back here, I want to kill the Heat. I want to beat them by 20. That’s just how I’m built. But if I was on the Heat, I would want to beat Philly by 50.

Return to Philadelphia 76ers
