This Sixers team is going to be legit scary before we know it.

Anthony Davis can't come soon enough.

Ok so this team can’t shoot threes, can’t defend consistently, can’t shoot free throws, can’t take care of the ball, can’t create easy buckets through their offense. Are they good at anything except being exceptionally unprepared every game?


Take Embiid, Simmons and Butler off that team.

Let's see how well they stack up against us at full strength with LeBron, Kuz and Lonzo.

Let's be fair, right?


maybe take like 1.25 of those 3 away would make it fair.....Kuz and Lonzo are not on that level

I love Embiid, dude is fun to watch, gonna be exciting to see AD and Embiid battle it out if Davis becomes a Laker.

I don’t think jimmy butler is gonna stay, he’s like an after thought out there. I don’t see Embiid getting much better, he doesn’t need to lol. But yeah, if Simmons develops a shot they are gonna be a problem.

I have a feeling things aren’t gonna work out in philly in terms of chips, no reason, just a hunch.

Reports said Butler wants to stay there and work out an extension with the Sixers.

All they need is one or two veteran role players and they'll be the best team in the east soon.

The team does not get better, yes they have injuries and that hurts, but the turnovers and bonehead plays shows poor coaching and teaching. Walton says they work on these things all the time, but I'm not sure if what they are practicing is getting to the players. The Lakers offense is basically run downhill as hard as you can and try to get uncontested layups, it works against poor defensive teams, but against teams that control the tempo and defend well in half court it fails. This is why his days are numbered. We need a balanced coach, with good X/O's on half court sets, and plays that can restore order.

Beasley and McGee out there making boneheaded plays. Personnel definitely factors in. No coach has made them the way they are

Embiid's literally improved every season he's been int he league but ok.
Butler will remain as long as we give him max which we've inidcated we will.

Your post seems deluded and at best hopeful.
