I think Shake should not see the floor again until he shots great or learn how to pass the ball

Tobias wasn't that bad. Everybody is overreacting. He got to his spots. Just had some tough misses and without Embiid, the opposing big man was free to roam and come challenge his drives.

Shake isn't a bad shooter or passer. He can do both of those things. He just lost his confidence.

Embidd plays out the game 76ers win by 20. It seemed like they were not trying win mid game with lineups on the court. How was that last foul on Simmons not a F1 is beyond me. Westbrook had no intentions for the ball but the man. All this hate on Simmons is laughable, we saw what happened when he missed last year’s playoffs. 2 years ago the 76ers lost on a lucky roll on the buzzer.

Next time Joel attempts a driving layup from 30 feet away from the basket, he should benched for the rest of the game.

Lets not go crazy. The Sixers were missing arguably the best player in the league in the Second Half and still could have won. I mean the Nets lost a game to the Celtics completely healthy I doubt there fans were going nuts. They will close it out next game.

It’s because Simmons is 6 foot 10 and 240 pounds of muscle being fouled by a 6 foot 4 210 pounds of westbook.

Switch the roles with Westbrook going for a dunk and Simmons grabbing Westbrook over the shoulder. It would be a flagrant.

You don't seem sure about the majority of the things you post. Shake had a 20% assist rate this year as a SG/SF. Shake ran point at SMU during his sophomore and junior seasons. What are you even talking about?

It doesn't matter which one of Simmons or Embiid you trade they are both fatally flawed.


One: MVP candidate

The other: Can't make foul shots

Yea, both fatally flawed :lol:

Mvp candidate who can get off any shot he wants , protects the paint (look how many points wizards scored in paint after Embiid left) and makes 85% of his free throws.

Nah, Embiid's paint defense is non applicable this series. The Wizards have been scoring in the paint all series long when he was out there. Embiid's defense in this series has been putrid.

Nobody is worried about this series. The problem is if a similar situation arises when we play a better team...

True, no reason that trade couldn't have used Mike Scott as salary ballast instead.

didn't help much...but Doc's lineups and Tobias reverting to last year were bigger issues

Doc lost this game. No one else. Coached this whole series like it is the regular season. His insistence on playing 11-12 players in a playoff game in unbelievable. And not having George Hill on the court down the stretch made absolutely no sense.

Or even if a similar situation doesn't arise. It just showed this team is not elite.

Well honestly, as soon as I saw them do that once to Ben, I would've put him on the bench to win the game.

I don't care how it looks, or whatever, its just the smart move to do.

Ben would've been on the bench for 1 min, and back in at the 2 min mark.

Doc should've just had some balls and made the move, if he wanted to win, we already know its Ben's main weakness.

Literally a 35 year old Lowry would have won us this game in the same conditions. It's time to upgrade


They were letting him be guarded by Neto and Ish Smith and he couldn’t take advantage like a max guy is supposed too. He deserves scrutiny like Ben and Doc as well.

Mike Scott is a corpse. Doc needs to let him rest.
