LBJ just read your post and said "Chit if this is true I should have pushed Embiid a lot harder than I did!"

You want it to be one way....but it's the other way.

I think they believe their health is way more important than anything else. They probably believe they can sleepwalk through much of the East if running on all cylinders, which probably isn't wrong.

I've been giving it 50-50 all year, that all 3 of those guys could make it through to the 3rd round of a playoffs. Kyrie almost never makes it to the end of a season. Durant has 14 seasons on his legs and has had 2 different injuries that would have forced most players into retirement just 10 years ago.

The Nets can beat the 76ers without Kyrie. It's not likely, but they can do it. The Nets aren't beating a healthy 76ers without Kevin Durant.

Kendrick Nunn is already or will be better than Tyler Herro. You agree?

If im going to trade with the Heat, i wont ask for Herro. I’ll ask for Nunn.

Nets are dominating the Suns in the 4th. Bye bye, number 1 seed.

Nets are going to lose twice in Milwaukee, just like we did. We’re fine, as long as finish strong our last 12-game stretch.

I love the optimism but the Sixers lose to everyone and the Nets are on another level when healthy.

The Sixers do have have a chance to rip off a ton of wins at the end here, 9-3 certainly looks doable. But will that be enough to even stay ahead of Milwaukee, nonetheless catch up to the Nets? It’s questionable.

If we go 9-3, Bucks can afford only one loss of the remaining 12 games to have the same record.

I don’t think it’s out of the question Milwaukee runs the table from here.

Great offensive set. Gobert is always reluctant to step out and switch on defense, and they used this bias to their advantage.

The process Sixers could have used veteran leadership like that provided by Kevin Love

This is definitely the case. Both for management and the players, the 1 seed does not seem to be a priority. testing lineups, getting healthy, getting young guys shots seems to be more of a concern. right or wrong i dont think the nets players or management are worried about home court or matchups. Definitely the players arent.

I mean when we lose vs you guys last time the mood was far from "damn we needed that win" or "if only we were healthy", it was just another game. Kyrie said "it was a fun game".

From a fan perspective, i was much more concerned before toronto kept lowry. had he gone to you guys or miami that would have made it to where id want to avoid you until the ECF. otherwise, to be honesty, philly/miami/boston are all kind of in the same boat for me and no preference who we play. id prefer to get the bucks then 1 of those 3 but again, its kind of all the same.

Not facing lebron would be nice, but we could only play them in the finals either way

I really wish D'Angelo Russell was a Sixer.
