They thought they did. "Bully ball." We're gonna be bigger that everyone, create mismatches, and shut teams down defensively.

It just didn't work out like they planned.

Well they planned it like it was the time Elton Brand played, ofcourse it wont work.


I don't think they planned anything. Their only plan was to NOT SIGN Jimmy Butler. Everything after that is just a reaction to that stupid decision.

With no shot creators and no spacing? That doesn't make any since .

Marcus Smart, Jayson Tatum, Kemba Walker, Jaylen Brown, Gordon Hayward, Brad Wanamaker.

Joel Embiid, Alec Burks, Shake Milton, Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris, Josh Richardson.

When you compare the two on who can create offensive, it's laughably unbalanced between these two teams. Shake barely fits in this category. Burks is very much a bench guy. Embiid should be creating in 3 seconds or less. Ben can't shoot. Tobi only creates for himself and without drawing fouls. Richardson is mediocre offensively.

Three, possibly four, of the Celtics on that list could be the lead guy on almost any team in the bottom half of the league.

Who needs that when you can just back your man down from halfcourt and then toss the ball to a guy who's posting up so that he can either score or pass to one of the other 3 guys that are also posting up. It seemed fool proof

We are running a prehistoric offense, it is time to move on, we need a guy that can score on the ball.

Yes, but why can't a $2bil organization figure this out?

Al horford was the last player anyone thought they would sign it was assbackwards. We basically signed an undersized aging center, a talented but limited playmaking pf, undersized scoring PF. None of which can protect the rim or shoot the 3 consistently. These moves were baffling.

Embiid deciding to play hard in the final 6 minutes of a 12 point game. Sigh.

That will have a lot to do with what happens to the FO. If they successfully pin it all on Brett and get another shot, they will know they are on thin ice and will act accordingly. So let's hope that doesn't happen.

Deep respect for Tobias coming back from the horrendous fall.

Return to Philadelphia 76ers
