Shots Fired in Philadelphia

I think foreign players just have less tact with how they communicate. They seem to be much more "to the point" and less coded. That probably rubs some the wrong way. It's probably why Jimmy really loved playing with Embiid. They from the same cloth. Some players are just built different. THen you have dudes like Mitchell and those types who dont want any critique because it will hurt their "brand".

Like Rudy, I think Embiid would probably be better served by being a "lead by example" leader and not someone who says too much.

In for Harden if it's our ultimate tank move.


If i was invested in some sort of all you can eat gentlemen's establishment in Salt Lake City i'd be all in on trading for Harden, outside of that i can't see any benefit. Like so many futile attempts in my sexually barren youth, I would suggest a three-way.

I had an addled moment earlier where I imagined Elton Brand being so pissed with Embiid that we could offer him Rudy for Embiid straight up and he'd consider it.
I absolutely cannot stand Embiid. One of the least likeable players in the league. Complete *******. And I absolutely want him on our team paired up with Mitchell. It would be like a $20 handy in a back alley, fun while it lasted but I would hate myself in the morning.

I dont actually mind him but I don't want him. I've come around to offloading Mitchell and Gobert getting a shed load of picks and starting again.

Harden is really good, but he's Dantoni ball. You put him in a different system and he just isnt the same player.

It's an effective system, but I have no desire to watch Harden-style Dantoni ball. I hate that the Jazz made a large move in that direction this year. Made the team way less enjoyable to watch.
I agree but he has also fallen off physically and mentally he has always been shaky. I can't stand watching the guy. They stopped calling some of his grifting BS as well.

I actually really like Embiid and feel kinda bad that he has been saddled with all this **** for so many years. I am not sure any team has had a weirder run than Philly the last 10 years.

But but but remember the AS team and tanking doesn't work....

Hopefully if they do run it back with Donovan and Rudy the vibes are at least better and the team is fun to watch... but I'm guessing by game like 20 we will be back to misery.
