Embiid vs KAT is the classic two way player versus the scorer only, Embiid made some great defensive plays down the stretch as Harris closed the door.

When Hill comes in Korklord should go to the bench as the guy out of the rotation you bring in only when the game is going poorly and hope it’s one of his lightning in a bottle games. Hill is really going to help Milton put up numbers.

Imo Mike Scott should be the one out of the 10 man rotation. Simmons, Harris, and Thybulle in small lineups can handle all the minutes at the 4.

Scott is giving us nothing this season, whereas Korkmaz is a better and more willing shooter and provides a little bit of playmaking.

If you need more evidence, Korkmaz has actually been Embiid's best 2 man lineup combination this season, and Mike Scott has been his worst out of our current rotation members. Korkmaz is 3rd with Simmons and Scott is only ahead of Dwight.

Pretty much every advanced stat suggests Korkmaz is having a far better season than Scott as well, and I'm sure everyone can agree that the eye test does not support Scott in any way.

Neither will be in the playoff rotation though.

KAT should ask for a trade. He’s wasting his career with the Wolves.

Or maybe its capitulation before the reversal.

He’s like AD. Both has to play PF.

Someone like Marc Gasol or Baynes would be nice for him

The team was missing at least two starters or 3 depending who you ask. Then lost a 4th rotation player 4 minutes into his first shift tonight. Kat has just been playing with a little more devotion lately, his mother died last Easter. But you go ahead have have your little poke if it makes your life seem better.

Meanwhile big bad Embiid hasn't played 65 games in his life and this roster hasn't ever one anything yet. Judging by tonight, they aren't winning a thing this year either. One player on a dysfunctional and injured team almost took your whole glass castle down all by himself. Yes I saw Simmons begging for them to call a final foul on Towns. They couldn't wait to finish this one out against benchers, rookies and undrafted players. Good luck with the playoffs this year. Seems like a bunch of champions alright :lol:

How does it feel to be a flyover franchise? Are you a masochist? 2 first overall picks on the roster and still a league afterthought. Perpetually toiling at the bottom of the standings in the sewers you've grown fond of and call home. Must suck huh. ;-;

Embiid played over 70 games in both 2017-18 and 2018-19. I guess you're just not used to counting playoff games though because the Wolves are never there.

Lol, if you dont see how ridiculous it is to play your main player 44 min on a back to back in a meaningless game in a year that once again you are the worst team in the league, worse than teams that are actually tanking, i dont know what to say.

The fact that your franchise player (for how long?) and the team are treating these meaningless regular season games against the Sixers as game 7 games is kind of pathetic and tells you a lot about the team. Meanwhile, no one on the Sixers really cares about the Wolves, this rivalry is entirely one sided. I guess having nothing else to look for, year after year, other than a lottery pick will do this to you.

Bruh i missed the first half but all I saw was twolves fans going crazy on twitter about Towns poster on Embiid (who is probably 60%). I said this is pretty sad that this one dunk will be the highlight of their season.

GOAT



He was pretty slow on defense and missed some switches, in fact KAT blowed easy by him on several possessions.

And yet he got 2 or 3 blocks in crucial moments.

The guy is just build to make important plays

KAT just looks Awkward on the floor at times he’s totally lost on D. I think he’d be a good third wheel with a good team but if you’re building a ball club around him you’re not even winning 30 games a year. Plus the guy is mentally fragile.

My man said " One player .... almost took your whole glass castle down all by himself." I thought I was watching a random Saturday night game but we were really watching Leonidas prove that Xerxes "The Process" Embiid could bleed.
