Preferring to put the ball in the hands of Jimmy Butler over D'Angelo Russell is preferring to play with one hand tied behind your back.
I would rather have a one handed Jimmy butler handling the ball than Russell handling the ball in a last possession situation.
If you only watch 76ers games and you don't watch Nets games I can totally understand that position.
I watch both teams a lot and I don’t think DLo is a good fit at all.
Ben Simmons needs to develop a jump shot, like we all know, we don’t need DLo if Simmons can handle the PG duty. If Simmons doesn’t improve, we trade him for another PG, then we will consider DLo.
Everyone is overrating Jimmy, he’s the best we had last season at clutch and last minute situation, but he’s not enough and we don’t need a 30 year old regressing ex all star for a 5 year max moving forward.
We need Ben and Embiid to improve and build around those 2. Those 2 are the sixers’ future in the next 5-8 years, fruits of the process.
Give them time to improve, more chance to experience and deal with clutch moments. They will get there, as long as Ben works on his jumper.
