Offseason Rumors & Updates 

Post#1 » by phillynative » Sun Nov 22, 2020 3:03 pm

The season will start in a few weeks and we havent heard much about the current sixers other than what morey will possibly do with them.

Other than who else the sixers are targeting in F.A??? @Fl311?

Has anyone been keeping up with our current sixers? Rumors , Social Media etc..

I know Embiid is now a father and Ben has joined
Faze, im talking about basketball related. We heard Doc &Rivers say Biid has been in the gym everyday but has he lost weight? Worked on his conditioning?

What has Tobias been up to after that trash playoff perfomance other than politics and getting engaged?
Last offseason i remember Tobi worked alot on his postgame because he knew he would be posting smaller players at the SF. Now what is the adjustment with playing for Doc and going back to the 4?

Matisse ? I know he has a youtube channel but what about his game? Ball handling ? Shooting ? Getting Stronger?

Shake and Furkan are young weakling shooter who cant defend? I saw a pic of Furk after a strength workout

Zhaire Smith any updated on health? What has he been up to?

Embiid said the key phrase trim down when referring to working out but he didn't go into detail . Hes upset about not being on the All NBA team and dissapointed with how the season went.

So, like every off-season, the excitement grows towards expectations of a Slimbiid and B3n 3immon3.

With the team being restructured in a big way, a promising few rookies, and videos of off-season workouts coming...

What is the ceiling for this team?

If Embiid truly comes into camp in tip top shape. If he can run all game long, has lost 25+ lbs, and looks agile and has improved his jump shot...

If Simmons comes into camp looking to take pull up 3s and corner 3s...and is making them...

If Maxey shows an improved vertical and jump shot...

Where does this team go? Finals?

Tobias still needs to be back into his best shape too, and needs to find his groove with consistently hitting shots.

And Danny Green needs to not have lost too many steps with his age.

But assuming it plays out that way, can this team beat LAL in 7?

Or are we still missing 1 more piece?

Bayesian approach.

Just focus on getting better now and be in position to get better in the future. Kind of what the Celts has been doing for years.

I think we’re going to be a lot better in the regular season. Day and night. ..or atleast for the preaseason 8-)

Man, Ben is a sniper from deep. Love that he's working on his game.

That last guy looks more like Denzel Valentine than Ben to me.

Soccer, for example, is very good for coördination. Nash, Kobe and Hakeem played it too

Video games are also good for coordination, right?

Why is 76ciologicy such a... weirdo

why does a positive Embiid story have to be amalgamated with Ben slander... but when pics of Ben working out release then it's "omg i feel sorry for the rim :lol: ". Really corny behaviour from a grown person who's join date is when Ben was five years old. Please stop it ☺️

I’ve been a lurker for a while. There was some argument you guys had a while back, something about your theory on what makes wings successful. You guys were in an argument about “intangibles”. It was pretty funny.

Because many people on the board are sick of Ben's schtick. Also 76ciology is one of the oldest and most thorough posters on the board. Not sure what you're talking about. Sounds more like your feelings are hurt because your buddy Ben isn't everyone's favorite player.

Please stop trolling the board with random fake Woj bombs. That's a little weird too.

Let’s stick to basketball and not bash other posters.
