I have to wonder if the George Hill addition affected him mentally.

Lmfao I reckon early chris jericho, early edge and early batista with team evo was goat lvl. Though Stone Cold saving everyone was the highlight for me. That wasn’t even a main event too wild times.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that “ when it comes to trying out talent, the directive from above has changed, wanting younger and bigger guys again.”

Awww yeah, Vinny Mac trying to bring the ratings back.

They really just need to do away with it because it's stupid. Mattise Thybulle's was literally one syllable words that sounded like ad libs in a mumble rap song

As we advance in the postseason, we're going to need guys who can isolate and score off the dribble. I personally look for Shake to be better involved once that is called upon. It's either him or Maxey that is going to have to step up if we are to get to the finals. It's a tall task for Maxey, Shake played well last year against Boston. He's certainly been phased out for this series, but we're going to need his scoring. This is the playoffs and these things happen with matchups. We're able to get away with it against the Wizards, but like I said. Either him or Maxey are going to have to eventually step it up with the second unit. I'm not worried about Shake just yet.

^ I don’t get all the hate and hand wringing about Shake, we pay the guy nothing and he has the ability to be a big difference maker if he’s on at the right moment. We no longer should need him to carry us at any time—Joel and Tobias are the options there and we don’t actually need a super volume 6th man in the PO—so it seems like anything he gives us is a bonus, and he’s been good enough at times before that it seems like we might very well get that bonus in an important time. Don’t know why it’s any more complicated than that.

Turning off a playoff game for almost the entirety of the 4th quarter because there's no point in finishing feels.... Wrong? Right? I dunno. But do we even need to bother with a 4th game?

I just don't want to see us lose that 4th game. You can expect Westbrook and Beal to continue fighting, but it won't be enough. Still, I don't want to see us "Sixer" one up for stupid reasons.

I'm already on to the next series, and honestly, if it takes them 6 to beat the Knicks or Hawks I'll be somewhat disappointed.

Doesn't feel like the Sixers have been Sixering many games this year.

I just want a clean bill of health the whole way through. Lets see how far we can go and then we'll have a clean and clear way to evaluate everything.
