Feels like PHI is sort of slipping in the Lebron race which is nice.

He needs to be surrounded by shooters, something a lot of the supposedly "great" philly talents are not great at.   He got a taste of cold shooters this finals and it ratcheted up another loss for him.

I was listening to Celtics Beat and they had on Matt Moore who was asked what he thinks about LeBron to the Sixers and he had one of the most sensible arguments against it happening. I'm paraphrasing, but he said if you're 34 and you are going to be working 12 hour days from October to May, the last thing you want to be doing is spending that time with 19-23 year olds. This both made me laugh and really rang true. But alas, crazier things have happened (like KD joining a 73 win team).

Redick will be 34 in a couple weeks and he really enjoyed playing with the Sixers.  Lebron certainly didn't appear to be having fun this season playing with older players who couldn't carry their weight.  In any case, the Lakers are a young team too.

Yea I think if you are a role player like reddick or bellinelli you can kind of live with it. If your going to be the face of the franchise and be responsible for carrying those other guys day in and day out I can see it being a different kind of challenge. I suppose they could try to dump fultz and Dario to bring in mike miller and James jones.

Nope. Not at all.

I'm of the belief that - if healthy - this team can beat ANYONE.

We have talented youth (Tatum, Jaylen, Kyrie)

We have a versatile Center (Big Al). This man battled both Giannis and Embiid and held his own in the playoffs.

We have the Swiss Army Knife of Forwards - Gordon Heyward.

We have our Lunch Pail / Hard Hat guys in Marcus Smart and Marcus Morris.

We have a good bench (Theis, Baynes, Rozier, Larkin)

We have Halloween covered in Scary Terry.

We have our potential Shot-Blocking jump out of the gym rim-running rim-protecting Big in Robert Parrish - I mean - Robert Williams.

I'm not concerned AT ALL about what PHI, GSW or CLE does. All I know is that if "I" were in that Celtics Locker room I'd have total faith in OUR guys to get the job done.

This team is READY.

Redick said last season was probably his most fun season he's had in the NBA.  It was arguably his best season too.  He's mentioned multiple times he wants Lebron to come. 

The selling point for the Sixers is that Lebron isn't going to have to carry "those guys" day in day out.  Embiid and Simmons in their 1st season playing together took the Sixers to 52 wins and 3rd in the East.  If Lebron goes to the Sixers, he can coast through the regular season.  They can reduce his minutes and games significantly. 

Dumping Fultz and Dario for Miller and Jones would be way beyond stupid.  I really hope you weren't serious about that.

Sounding like Leonard would resign in Philly. Seems it might be coming together for the Sixers. That would pretty much doom Boston's chances in the East.

And GS is pretty much a lock to win it again next season... So why do we even.bother, right?

I don't get the pessimism... Healthy celtics shouldn't be afraid of any team

Absolutely agree with you. But James and Leonard would be a very tough out for the Cs. Would prefer the Sixers stay as constructed.

When you go all the way no one remembers your path to the trophy. So facing scrubs all the way to the trophy has the same result as facing the best teams of all times.

But I prefer the second road

There is a report that LeBron has made up his mind but will announce on Tuesday:

A recent report from Nick Wright of Fox Sports 1 states that James has already come to a decision, and he’ll announce it on Tuesday morning.

I am watching NBA Channel show on TV and there was a blurb that said LeBron AND Kawhi are following the Sixers on Twitter.

There is nothing concrete here but I don't like it. I guess it may be mano y mano if this happens.



Hey Jaylen. I lost 519 Tommy Points betting on you guys and lost
