Then my bois wouldnt have Ben Simmons, who is also now a certified **** monster

The Sixers are Fultz being legit (which isn’t looking great) away from being a legit East juggernaut.
Imagine if this team had the balls to stand pat and take Dennis Smith Jr, or Tatum. Oh em geee!!

If embiid can stay healthy (such a big if) they are a potential eastern conference finals team

Philly sports, stand the **** up!

Honestly, I’m really not sold on Philly.

So far Tatum+pick for Fultz is looking bad (though, it is still early) and honestly I’m not completely sold on Embiid. Injured a ton, and honestly kind of inconsistent even when he’s on the court. Also, apart from Fultz Embiid and Simmons, they really have absolutely nothing of value. The team in its current state will never be able to truly compete and I don’t see any assets they could/be willing to flip for something better.

The process is still in process though, so I guess we’ll wait and see

Covington is pretty great and Saric has flashed. JJ knows his role and does it well

I think the squad is really solid with the upside of great.

The trade of Fultz looks brutally bad right now but I don’t share your concerns on Embiid, injuries concerns are fair but when he’s on the court he’s as legit as they come

Simmons is outrageous too. They have potentially two centre pieces and if Fultz can be something, they’ve got a team

All hinges on Embiid though, he and Simmons can be a dominant duo.

Embiid and Simmons are the real deal barring injury. Fultz i am not sold on.

Covington is a solid player and Holmes has a high ceiling. Reddick is not far off retirement.

If Fultz can become a solid PG and Simmons and Embiid can stay on the court together they definitely have a solid core to build a stong team around.

The timeouts in NBA and NFL make the games drag out so much. Even the MLB drags on towards the end when they start bringing in relief pitchers who then warm up for a bit.

In the case of the NFL, I would love to see them replace the two minute warning/timeouts with stop-the-clock timeouts instead i.e. teams can use the timeouts to stop the clock but everything else goes on as normal (meaning offense has 40 seconds to snap the next play). It'll never happen though due to the broadcasters wanting advertising revenue.

On the other hand, did we really have to give up the BKN pick?
Also I got an IT4 jersey 4 months ago, so this is doubly disappointing

How do you think 2K feels. They have KI on their 2K18 cover.

Cavs robbed Celtics blind. IT, Crowder, Zürúíķ and a 1st rounder is a great deal for them.
Good this was a very bad comment on my behalf lol

Top 10 in the bag, so I’ll leave the picks there... Michael Porter Jr. seems like the best player still on the board

Who did the Cannons pick?
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Just watched the Vince Carter effect on Netflix. As a VC fan, I really enjoyed it. Shame they couldn’t play the Sydney Olympic dunk.
See some similarities between the Raptors and the Raiders
