You want Russ to be good enough that we can trade him, but not so good that we keep him.

There is no way we don’t trade him unless we make a very deep run in the playoffs (not happening)

Biggest takeaway of the game - PLAY A BIG GUY AT CENTER


Been calling it for a long time... Defense looks more cohesive with Dwight in there... I mean as a wing defender it takes less pressure for you when you know you have a big back there.

No time for moral victories. Good fight from the guys. This 76ers team shouldn’t scare anyone


They are dangerous as long they have Harden and Embiid.

Don’t trust either not to choke in the playoffs and Doc is still their coach.

The effort was encouraging but the defense needs work if we want to turn things around.

I've said before and I'll say it again. If AD comes back healthy, we can beat anyone in a random series.

My biggest fear is that we win against the Warriors in a first round series and then Klutch continues to control the team.

We need a reboot... and if we do well... anything can happen.

DeAndre Jordan

4/6 9pts , 7rbs, +3



Can't say the lakers had good effort when they make him look decent.

We will have to play the suns, and we will need a much better lebron and AD to have a chance, we can live with “this” Westbrook, but not with the AD just came back from injury.

We don’t trade him if no one wants to trade for him. It would likely be very expensive.

He will be an expiring contract, much easier to trade. Lots of teams will want cap space in 2023 (including us).

Klutch will be around no matter what happens... Well for another year at least.

Not many teams at the top of the West that we could win a series against. Barring significant injury.

Not about that at all... It's just the reality of it all. The odds of Jeanie getting rid of Lebron/AD in the same offseason is pretty much close to ZERO.

Great game! The Lakers look so much better without Lebron, and him purposefully chasing individual accolades/prioritizing that over winning.

On bron's end, this was a smart game to fake again...don't want to risk scoring less than 30 ppg with Embiid protecting the paint. Next game, he can probably continue the chase better.

If LBJ agreed to just let a GM run the team and rode out his farewell tour and headed off to Vegas, I'd be cheering him on.

I still think he's a great player.

I just hate, hate, hate his GM moves... even if he's only partially responsible and I can't enjoy the team until he's gone.

I love our young signings like Wenyen and Reaves and see a bright future if Klutch is gone.

If they continue to have a strong influence... I don't think it will be good for the team long term.

Funny that the 76ers had Crypto.com on their jerseys playing at Crypto.com Arena.
