Ever since Bodner blocked me on Twitter, the reporting on this team has been real shoddy.

Have you tried paying him 3$ a month? He'll do anything for $3 a month.

He is above average but he is straight up over matched vs T.O.B.I.



Ben cannot even drive by PGs currently and he looks like Giannis/Lebron when guarded by Brown.

Ben/Embiid PNR can 100% work on the wings. It wasn’t perfectly excuted there but that’s how I envision it. If Ben takes that shot it opens up so much of both their games.

Ben is still a good enough passer for the inlet to Embiid/open wing if there’s a double but the reverse isn’t true with Embiid as the handler. I can see Embiid topping out at a Hakeem level passer certainly not Gartnett/Duncan level.
Might be actually lack of care/awareness because he has rare touch for a big. With passing like with most things there has to a base there, it’s not great but it’s basic so it’s good enough.

Look it’s a very tiny operated offensive game with Ben have it maximize as best as you can (Roll man, Post play, outside of the it’s null invoid, zero value off ball cutting/lobbing)

He’s going to get less minutes on ball anyway.

One thing I like about the addition of Hill is that we can play Shake off guard. Not too comfortable having him handle and distribute the ball. He is much better at creating his own shots.

I will say, if we started this game and you told me Furk would have as many points as Jaylon going into the 4th, I'd take it.

3 shooters to Ben’s eyeline
Ben initiate the action with Embiid on the wing
Centralize Ben basically a feet forward of the free throw line

Leaves Embiid in the perfect position for post up/inlet/lob ottop or if Ben grows some cahoonas floater/jumper/drive to the rim with an Embiid screen

Double comes for Embiid open wing three from a Ben pass when centralized hot potato close out/three.

Easy money because Embiid is 1v1 in his most dangerous spot for even a short amount of time.

Should have been well synced in by now. That’s easily the best two man game I can up with for both in a half court setting. Don’t like them both in the dunkers spot and Embiid initiating the action because of his facilitating/passing chops.

Surely there’s loads of vision on a Gasol/Odom two man game surely.

The Celtics move the ball more with Langford than with Kemba LOL
