Simmons looks like he will be better than Embiid, but it will be close and irrelevant at the end of the day if they stay on the court.

I will say Simmons' mentality is incredible for his age.

Simmons is secretly 32. Australia is notoriously loose with their birth certificates. :trump:

I don't know which is better, Stephen A Smith still trying to say the process was an embarrassment or Skip Bayless crying over Sean Lee and the Dallas Cowboys.

CsC I'm curious since you seem to be a big Sixers fan like me, what are you thinking win/loss for the year? I don't think a 50win season is honestly that unrealistic they look like they will only get better. I originally predicted starting like 15-15 then going on a tear the last 50 games, but they look pretty good already and hopefully a healthy Fultz only adds to it. I'm thinking like 50-54 wins and probably the 4th seed because Bos should have the 1 seed at this rate.

I was originally thinking about 45 wins but I'd bump that up to say 50 is in play with how well they started. Completely agree they should get better as time goes, especially if Fultz can get healthy

Huge win over the Cavs last night, when this team is on they are pretty hard to beat.

Another win tonight, starting to hit their stride they're 9-2 in their last 11 I believe and have won like 11 straight at home.

So Fultz randomly played tonight, looked like he was forcing things at time but he did show glimpses of why he was the consensus number 1.

8 assists and only one turnover. Don't even care about the points yet if he can bring that kind of ball handling

This team is on another level right now, even without Embiid they're running the Cavs out of the gym.

The odds are pretty slim of them missing that many 3s and Wade making that many long 2s again in the same game. I think they're fine even without Embiid.

I agree, although Wade consistently kills the Sixers even if majority of it was done in his younger days. I think we are fine in this series and Embiid probably comes back game 4

For somebody who talks the amount of shit Whiteside does, he sure doesn't do much during the actual game. This series is chippy and I love how the young guys aren't backing down. This is a fun bandwagon to be on everybody hates this team because of Hinkie and they are actually incredibly talented.

It's a 50/50 IMO. He either stays with Cle and rides into the sunset maybe making one more run or he comes to the Sixers and he gets to mentor Simmons and probably grab another ring.

I don't think he's going back to Cleveland. He's been so methodical in career choices. If they go out in the first round, he's gone.

I'll add, as someone that generally doesn't watch the NBA but likes basketball ... the Sixers are a fun team to watch play.

The sixers are the best landing spot for Lebron to stretch out the back end of his career. He can coast the entire regular season and save his legs for several more playoff runs

Sixers shot like 17% from three, while terry effing rozier hit like 7/9. Methinks that'll change going forward. I'm just going to throw this game out the window

A lot of the team has played very poorly that being said you have to give credit to Boston and Stevens. Their D is disrupting everything the Sixers want to do and Brown isn't making great adjustments.

This is the craziest sports story I've ever seen. I'm used to nutso players, but for a GM to tweet like a unhinged Trump and actively try to sabotage his own players is not something I'd ever have believed could be true.

It makes it way funnier, because it leads to the conclusion that she bought those shirts and set up the burners to defend the collars.

I like that the NBA forced the Colangelos on the Sixers because of the "embarrassment" that was Hinkie ... and here we are.
