Closest thing Embiid has gotten to a good PG that helps him out was when Jimmy Buckets came in and started taking over the role. Take the gamble on Harden's attitude, I want to see Biid get some easy looks.

Joel absolutely unconscious tonight. I think this is the best he's ever been since he came to the league. Such a joy watching big fella.

3rd game in 4 nights, where we play with a squad of around 8 players

So not too worried that we got pushed far.

Worried about Simmons, think it's pretty easy to see we could get better a lot by trading him.
But since COVID is ruining this season (and much other stuff) again, I don't know if it's wise to go and trade him this season.
Luckily we have a smart GM now, he will make the right decision.

A joy to watch Joel at this level and Maxey and Joe develop during these strange games.
Tyrese should be untouchable at this moment.

Personally, Maxey and Milton are or can be much better on offense than Jimmy. Atleast both guys can shoot and run better 2 man game than Jimmy. Jimmy’s edge is isolation but he’s not that good.

Ok. I just realized this.

Why are the refs not wearing any face masks? :lol:

Ben Simmons is a fantastic player, DPOY potential, can run the floor and terrific handle and passing abilities for his size. He's also a very limited initiator in half court. Both things can be true at the same time.

Doesn't stop the mental midget from shooting. Ben is nothing more than a 3rd star... not a guy that should be the highest or even 2nd highest paid player in the team. You could get 50 players in the league that could do what he does at point guard for 10 times less money.
When i guy with Simmons in his nickname is trashing Simmons we reached the boiling point

Not really. My man caught feelings against Simmons for off-court political stuff. After Simmons said he was racially profiled in Australia, dude got mad and started slandering his play at every chance. Transparent

Actually if you ask me which Center I want for my perfect championship caliber team, I will chose Asik hands down
