Tobias splits on ORTG and DRTG have gone down from Feb to March. The whole team is worse in general without Embiid, what a surprise.


Tobias is playing more minutes with the bench. It's obvious his ORTG and DRTG are gonna go down because of this.

That's totally unrelated to the amount of shots everyone gets, anyway

They say an analytics man doesn't have a heart, but I ran the numbers and nothing can be further from the truth - Sam Hinkie probably

57% on 3s the last 6 games. He needs to take more. I know the percentage is obviously unsustainable, but he obviously looks more comfortable letting it fly. And, as I've said, he's not ridiculously long or athletic, so he gets swatted at the rim. I think for this year, he should just try to nail jumpers and get better at using his body to shield blockers (and draw fouls) in the offseason.

I do think there is a path to stardom for him, but he has some aspects of his game that still need a lot of work, particularly on defense. He needs to be better fighting through screens.

It would not surprise me one bit if we lost that game. I'm ready to be "pleasantly" surprised that we don't, given all the ways we struggle against jitterbug guards.

I agree with you. I really belive Maxey can be a good pg for us. We gotta be patient with him. You can see in his highlights how fast and good he can be. I think he is really good breaking down a defense with his dribble and his floater is really good. You can see that his form shooting is good, so i can see him being a 36% 3 pt shooter in 2 years, and having a good mid range jumper.

He gotta learn to finish better around the rim( he will get there, he's fast and crafty as a slasher ) and be a good defender.

We gotta be patient with him, he's just a rookie playing in a contender, so he will not have a lot of time to play. If he was in a lotery bound team he would be playing 30 minutes per game and would be averaging 12-15 ppg.

Ben will never be a real pg. We should keep Maxey, i really think he can be a good combo guard who scores 20 ppg with 6 apg after some years in the league.
