Ben was their best player? Were we watching different games? Tobias was much better. So was Joel when he was playing.

I think criticism of Ben is being misconstrued with absolutely finding him worthless. He's still a good defender and is able to get into the lane (and promptly pass it out). He also played the most minutes. I would hope he'd generate assists because he's completely petrified of taking it up in traffic and if he does try to score, it's a lame hook shot.

He has a lot of value, but his current value is something I'd trade instantly for a competent scorer who gets his own buckets.


I'd trade Ben too. If you can trade up, like for Leonard. For Lavine? They'd have to send other assets.

But Tobias had a career night scoring the ball and Joel did his thing, and yet Ben was still more effective overall to the win perhaps both offensively and defensively. IMO




I wish the NF would put out an All Possessions video sooner, but he tosses a lot of passes out to the perimeter or lobs to Dwight in the post once he has gotten isolated into the paint on smaller guys. Yes, a lot of those passes were converted to assists today and he had some really nice assists in transition (which is his bread and butter), but he is essentially a non-threat at scoring other than putbacks or in transition. If he was a DeRozan, another essentially non-three point shooter, type scorer, then you'd never listen to me complain about him. DeRozan isn't even fair, I'd take a Dejounte Murray type scorer and be satisfied.

Instead our offense is him driving to a spot and kicking it out. That works against a dreadful team like Washington, but we're going to have some issues against teams that actually play cohesive defense.


All true, but he was an aggressive playmaker yesterday, which is the Ben I like most. He created a tempo and pace that was better than normal, and it helped everyone... Including Tobias and Joel

Yea, I'm not disputing that he was effective. He is a good player, a point I've emphasized before. My concerns exist beyond this game. Washington was/is atrocious at defense and really was begging Ben to score on them. Luckily, I don't think the Knicks or Hawks are really all that better on defense. The real issue will present itself when we're playing the Buck or Nets if we get to the Finals, especially the Bucks. When they have Giannis on Tobias and everyone else smothering Embiid, it's going to be on Ben's shoulders to score some points. What I saw yesterday concerns me in that regard.

Feel like the mods should go ahead and make the threads :-)

Sixerscan had a good one up. As I said before, can't be having outsiders like Ducler making our gamethreads in the playoffs. Reg season, fine, but playoffs, is our house!

Don’t worry we haven’t seen the end of Simmons. He’ll step up and score when it’s required of him. The main thing is free throws right now, Simmons needs to start getting to the free throw pine and cashing out, I know the dude can get to the rim at will and draw fouls .

What's the point in lurking all this time and then you decide to finally start posting, you're just being mean and trolling?

Why not just join the community and start posting normal?

Yeah, Joel and Giannis would literally wipe the floor with his crusty, old, physically weak, skinny, little jit haircut-having ass. Not sure who he thinks he's fooling with the fake tough guy act.

Look....His name is Trevor....Enough said. I've never met a person named Trevor that wasn't a jackass. Yes...That includes Trevor Lawrence in the NFL who happens to also look...Like a giant jackass.

Embiid essentially played one half and we never really had to sweat. Next win is by 20.



It's going to take more than just Embiid to win this series let alone sweep them. I doubt Tobi will continue to drop 35+ points a game.
