Lol, Wade just tried to throw a lob to Nolynyk, and the result was as to be expected ;D.

KO really is an X factor.
Whatever crushes individuality is despotism, by whatever name it may be called and whether it professes to be enforcing the will of God or the injunctions of men.

How exactly does one miss this blatant of a travel? The Fultz foul the very next trip was equally as bad of a call.

I like Middleton like I liked Jeff Green.  Solid player with the potential to go off one night and lay an egg the next.  For me personally Bledsoe is the perfect example of a guy who thrived and got hyped up because of what he did as a back up yet when he became a starter it's clear he's not really that good.  Rozier is already a much better player than Bledsoe has ever been.

As for Al he gives Embiid fits because he can guard him down low because of his strength and on the perimeter because of his quickness.

I completely disagree with respect to Middleton, and Bledsoe is at least a borderline All Star, imo. He just has no cartilage in his knees, or next to none, iirc, lol, and Rozier isn't there. Yet. Or at least I hope that such will be the case moving forward, haha, even though it feels as if I've somehow jinxed the guy. Ugh.

I guess that I'll take your word for it in terms of Horford/Embiid, though, how about that? :)

Seems like the Refs don't know how to call travel for both teams

Is the inexperienced-ness of the 76ers getting to them?

That is absurd.
"There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, 'Thy will be done,' and those to whom God says, 'All right, then, have it your way.'"

"You don't have a soul. You are a Soul. You have a body."
