76ers will not make it ECF if Tobias Harris does not score 30 pts per game 

Post#1 » by BB_Fan » Mon May 3, 2021 8:58 pm

Tobias Harris complains he was not selected for all star but he has not played like an all star. He has never scored 30 ~ 35 pts per game and becoming a second offensive threat from the perimeter to complement Joel. If Embiid is in foul trouble or has a bad night
76ers will lose the game.

76ers need a second ISO offensive option from perimeter who can score 30 pts per game if they hope to reach ECF as second seed.
The current roster cannot defeat bucks or nets in a 7 game series.

This is dumb. Embiid doesn't even average 30ppg.

Embiid will be double teamed and Ben will be neutralized in half court. How can the team score 100+ points every game in playoff without Tobias stepping in with a bigger offensive contribution.

You can't envision Sixers having a chance against a team like the 4th seed Knicks or worse to get to the ECF if Harris doesn't become the third top scorer in the league?

Gotcha. If he's expecting Harris (or anyone outside of Embiid) to up his PPG to 30 PPG, he is going to be disappointed. If Sixers are to have a chance, that's not going to be the route they'll take.

There is no way 76ers are going to defeat Nets or Bucks 4 times by depending on Embiid alone. You need a perimeter scorer in the fourth quarter and Joel will be double teamed. Tobias as the highest paid player has to step up his game.

It will be his chance to redeem the value of his contract.

Sure that would be ideal. I think if you're banking on that, you're probably going to be disappointed... There's a reason why they were trying to add Harden and Lowry this year.

Sure, but you'll also be disappointed if you think they'll make the finals this year. In a way, I think that's what he's saying.

Are you trying to say this team is going out in the 2nd round again?

I think most of us realize that is very possible. But if they manage to get the #1 seed, it’s also possible they get two cupcakes and waltz to the ECF’s. And once they get there, puncher’s chance and all that.

If you’re just trying to say Tobias isn’t good enough to justify that contract, I would propose this one word retort to your long-belated epiphany.

Duh.

Just seems like a long way to say they're the underdog to the Bucks and the Nets lol

Have you seen how Philly play? With the 2nd best defense in the NBA?

Tobi has had a decent season, anything over 20per in the playoffs will be great for both the 6ers chances in those games and Tobi's trade value this off season.

A big success factor of the Sixers is being 2nd in defense and 10th in pace. Great offensive rebounders too.

Yes if we get the second seed and have to play Bucks we are out. Tobi has to elevate his offensive game as you cannot rely on your center for 35+ pts every game. You need a perimeter iso scorer.

Tobias earns 35M per year and needs to be the go to scorer. You cannot rely on Shake Milton, Furkan or Danny Green to be that proven ISO scorer who will get you the buckets in 4th Quarter.
