Back to back game on the road after an OT win. Embiid facing a big white center. Hmmmmm I wonder what is going to happen.

But despite the odds I expect the 76ers to man up, show up and win.
Please allow me to introduce myself I'm a man of wealth and taste.

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

Gosh, I love Coby White. Would love to have him dominating 2nd units off our bench.

A 3rd guard. You don't waste top 7 picks on that. He's not even as good as Cole Anthony.

Gotta get the best guy you can get when you're picking.

If there are no creators that can defend available, the next best thing is a getting a guy that can just create. Then the next best thing is a defender that can shoot. Then singular shooting specialists and defensive specialists are the last thing you target.

6'4 and under, non-pointguards, with horrible length, average athleticism and small sample 3 pt success, are a dime a dozen. Coby White being drafted in the top 10 had mistake written all over it.

Normally it would be 7pm local time but the league gives an extra hour for COVID protocol when a team is on a back to back.

Nah, you gotta take effortless scorers when you find them. Whether they pan out as a franchise player or just become excellent trade commodities because of their instant scoring production during their cheap rookie contract years, it's the best investment you can make.

Coby White isn't an excellent trade commodity though, mostly because he's been pretty terrible and his rookie contract options aren't cheap. He's locked into 5.8 mil next season and they have to decide on a 7.4 mil option for the following year. I don't think it's certain that his 4th year option gets picked up, and I can't imagine another team is going to be willing to pay very much for that "privilege".
