in today's nba, simmons is really a $15 mil/year player, not $33.

Embiid's performance reminds me of TO in the Super Bowl with one leg. Just total guts.

Ben Simmons is McNabb in this scenario

Philadelphia Eagles: 1948, 1949, 1960, 2017

Cuz that 'scrub who doesn't even belong in the NBA' according to some posters been locking him down.


Because Doc Rivers got his **** together after one game instead of the series, for a change.

People choose who they want to win against teams that they don't like. There's more Sixers bashing than Hawks praising after the Sixers loss. I wouldn't call that rooting for an underdog

I haven't read posts after the game, but that shows that a team is an underdog. I assume people talked trash because Sixers definitely should have won and didn't. That makes the Hawks the underdog.


But if it's all about rooting for the underdog, shouldn't it be more about praising their win? Some teams don't get destroyed on these boards the same when they lose a game that they're supposed to win. And that brings us back to the point, there are a lot of Sixers haters that just like to see them lose. Sixers can go against the Nets next round and people will still root for them to lose. It's just how it is around here

Um please don’t start this hack Ben Simmons chicken **** stuff. Just take your damn loss so the next game can start. Not trying to watch the last 3 minutes last 45 min.

Didn't Simmons also publicly say that he wanted to guard Trae all game? Not that Doc wouldn't have made the change but I don't think he had much of a choice.

Fair enough. I'd be rooting for Sixers. I want any team in the East besides the Nets to get to the Finals.

Wow. Now we got fouls and timeouts. WHY the **** is Doc calling a timeout up this much with 3 min left?

He’s a very good player. Didn’t think he would work well with capela. But he’s improved his outside shot even more. He’s gonna to get paid. Not sure he’s worth the max though. Hawks are in tricky situation paying him than trae after next season.
