Man the Sixers are fun.  Embiid says after the game he is 69% healthy and taunts Lavar Ball on Instagram.  Simmons jokes that Embiid stole one of his rebounds (Simmons missed a triple double by a rebound) and Embiid responds by apologizing.

Simmons and Embiid seem to be developing a nice chemistry. I hope they can both stay healthy and play good enough basketball to get beat by the C's in the ECF for many years.

Just watched the 1st quarter of last night's game. Simmons was dominant the first part before he was pulled. Just blowing by guys, blocking shots, etc.  He's the real deal. Just can't shoot free throws.

The Cs definitely held them in check in their first match-up. Embiid going 4-16 was a good sign for our defense...and this is, of course, was without Hayward (this disclaimer is always needed).

The Sixers do look good, although I do hope they crash and burn and guys like Simmons and Embiid are able to eventually move on elsewhere. A team obviously tanking year after year doesn't deserve success.

Embiid looked slow and not very agile versus us. I think he's not in very good shape due to his offseason limitations, so you get some nights where he doesn't have his wind/legs right now.

I think he has his legs under him now.  the last 4 games he has had only 1 day off in between the games, and basically playing 32, 25, 35, and 35 minutes.   He has gone for at least 22 and 15 in all but the GS in that stretch.

Sixers win 3 quarters, including the 1st by 19, and still lose tongue Warriors by 8.  A 47-15 3rd quarter will do that to you

Always good to see the Sixers lose. Can't say I dislike many teams more than them!

I honestly don't remember a team being beat by 32 points in one quarter...insane.

Sixers keep playing this well, my Lebron James to Philly scenario next summer won't seem so crazy.

Interesting. In that scenario James stays in the East, which is an added benefit.

However, it seems obvious they would need one more veteran piece/scorer/shooter. Portland's backcourt of Lillard and McCullom are possible targets if they underwhelm again this year.

Fultz becomes trade bait at that point. Ideally, they also resign Reddick to a team-friendly deal.

If the sixers started McCullom-Covington-James-Simmons-Embiid next year, that would be a tough team to beat. Backups would be Reddick-Holmes-Saric-McConnell-TLC-Korkmaz-Anderson.

Just bumping this because Bill Simmons included a deal around this package in his trade column yesterday.

https://www.theringer.com/nba/2017/12/8/16751428/nba-trades-2017-season-nfl-week-14

His deal was McCullom for Fultz, Johnson and a first round pick. He thinks the Blazers say no and counter with McCullom for Fultz, Johnson, and Saric. In his mind, neither team gets what they really want. Blazers say no to the first and yes to the second. Sixers say yes to the first and no to the second.

My idea in this thread was McCullom for Fultz, Bayless, and Justin Anderson, plus a future first. Not that far off.

Bill, if you are reading this, you can pm me to arrange fair compensation.

Edit: my idea starts on page 72.

Right now Fultz has little if any trade value.

This is not true at all. Some teams may be a little leery of his 'injury', but I assure you the #1 pick in the most recent draft (who actually performed pretty well in Summer League) has plenty of trade value. The trade example above is definitely not out of the question.

This is true.  Teams may have some "headcase" concerns at this point, but Fultz is super talented and definitely has trade value.

This triple OT game is going to end Embiidís season. 

His back is clearly killing him.
