Lol wat

He is a black hole on offense, especially at the end of games. At least three terrible drives tonight in the fourth that ended in turnovers because he refuses to pass and has to look to get his. Not sure he is the answer at point

1:46 from being officially eliminated.

At least the winning streak damaged their lottery chances.

This basketball season sucked in its entirety. Was in the finals in my NBA fantasy league. Match-up was tight all last week. Had 12 players available on Sunday, the last day. Could only have 10 on my playing roster so had to bench 2.

One of the guys I put on the bench was listed as GTD (injured...game time decision). He ended up playing and hitting 2 three pointers that would have tied the match at 4-4-1. Would have won the tie-breaker (head-to-head match play during the regular season) and won the championship.

Nah, total bandwagon fan. I'm not a good fan like 'travis or OTPT. I just follow them when they're winning, can't name all the starters.  I'd go to a game if they came to Detroit for a playoff.   I'd buy a ticket.  If they're not goingto get their ass kicked in the first round, I"ll follow them if they get near a victory in the series. I'm a horrible NBA fan.   I'm not like these guys.  But it's fun bustin their balls.

A little clip for those that spent a chunk of the winter scoffing at the Sixers rebuild.

With a thrilling 132-130 nail-biter of a victory, in front of a raucous sell-out crowd at the Wells Fargo Center, the Sixers took control of the Eastern Conference's third seed and all but locked up home-court advantage in the first round of the NBA playoffs.

The Sixers came into the game with a 48-30 record and riding a 12-game winning streak, a half game behind their opponent, the Cleveland Cavaliers, who themselves had won 10 of their last 11 and sat at 49-30. The Cavs were on the second night of a back-to-back, yes, but the inexperienced Sixers were playing a LeBron James-led team without the services of Joel Embiid, the Sixers' superstar who is all but guaranteed to miss the rest of the regular season recovering from surgery to repair a fractured orbital bone.

I'm sort of on the side of keeping him. It's his mess, let's see what he can do with it.

Gores just needs to put the clamp on him trading any future draft picks or putting further into cap hell.

Other than that, let him try to make it work.

Some reading for those that scoffed at the 76ers model earlier in the year.....

But that was five years ago, which feels more like 50 when you consider how far these Sixers have come. They entered the playoffs on a 16-game winning streak, and they went 23-2 at home between Christmas and the end of the regular season. They don’t have problems filling seats anymore, and the Wells Fargo Center, which used to be uncomfortably quiet during the lean years, is now so loud that I had to scream to talk to the reporter seated next to me in the press box—and that was before the Sixers tipped off their first playoff game in six very long seasons on Saturday night against the Miami Heat.

Game 1 Was the Sixers’ First of Many Victory Laps in Philly

Hire Hinkie!!

I get that misunderstanding people’s arguments is sorta your MO but I don’t think anyone exclusively scoffed. I think people said “tanking isn’t actually the only way” and they were right. And by they I mean me. I don’t know what other people said.
