Listen: Anthony Davis, Joel Embiid, Jimmy Butler discussed on Jon Marks and Ike Reese
"To the NBA. I don't I don't. I don't think the I don't even think the recent conference finals. Well, listen, this summer is going to be big for the NBA in general. With the injuries that have taken place with Golden State talking about the two two of the top three or four free ages that was supposed to hit the mortgages had season in the injuries that pretty much is going to wipe them out for next season. So that's going to impact, what these other guys do this summer where they decide they wanna play it because you don't have these guys to sort of play with now. What the hell is going to do? You just want a championship with the raptors shout out to the rafters show. Nuff go. I Leonard Drake the six about that about that. Yeah. I wasn't as happy as I thought it was going to allow for Kyle dash. The raptors listen by the time that game was over man. There was nobody out there. Steph Adriana dollar now it's pretty much. I mean it was they had a shot in the head, but somehow and that would have will they were going to lose this series win in Toronto game seven with just now without no. Steph was bad. I don't even know how they were in the game. Steph good yet while he was the reason why they were in a game and their role player showed up but it wasn't enough in the end. So. Listen, the Sixers man. I don't I don't know what a six is our right now know part watching Toronto, do with. They did this year going there with no promises that he's going to sign for a long term deal, you know, Masai jury comes and he basically reshapes that roster. Bring in a guy like Marcus. All right. Danny green. He's in that trae Kawai and you trade for a guy that could walk after one year everybody everybody would be saying you traded to get a guy that's going to go next year. Yeah. He thinks her also cares now fire coach of the year that fifty nine dollars a coach of the year. Like even if Kawai lease it was worthy rafters. It doesn't even matter, doesn't they won the championship. She's been telling you got me thinking, I'm trying to figure out is there a way. Like ebony Davis is the big trading ship out there. Right. Right. What are you doing who you trained for him? To say because there's only one player that's going to get it done. And you know, it well Ben Simmons would be would be the guy you would have to trade to get Anthony Davis. Correct. I wouldn't have a problem doing it. I don't know of Anthony Davis and Ben Simmons. I mean, Anthony Davidson and Joel is the combination that gets done for you. But I'll tell you what would know. K D. No clay for most of the season next year. If you have a d- here LeBron is irrelevant. You look at the east, you got nothing but the bucks in east. And even if stays. Anthony davis. Jimmy Butler, Joel Embiid. Supplemental parts around that. That's not enough to get you out of the east. No, it's not. Nope. Nope. Nope, disagree. Here's why you ready disagree with it. Let's start with Ben Simmons because Ben Simmons isn't a good enough score offensively while just traded to affect the game. So that, that's if you keep in, if you, if you were to move, Ben Joel L MP. It's just about Joel Embiid. Now Joel Embiid. The fact that his availability is what it is. It's scattered look at this year's playoffs. Do I expect that to change? Yes. Dear yes, I who not. And here's why matters less. You're adding a top five player. Yeah. In, in theories, a top five player. Yes. Resent about a wide last year. Same stabbing quite ones. But yeah, but quite one, Anthony Davis has it okay? Would that make team did this year? I'm talking about prior to him going to Toronto the same things were being said about them. Last year. Things are being so Andre dollar at that time. My point is had led a team. He had led a team to a championship until this year. And people were saying the same things last year. It's coming off a plan nine games. He's not a top player. What does he ever done? He's injured. The same things were being said, because we forget, what Kawai was when he was at his best, and people forget, what Anthony Davis was when he's at his best. You gotta throw this season out the do didn't want to be their New Orleans. He basically take the season. You put him with NV with Jimmy Butler. Embiid doesn't have the pressure on him to play every night. He's gonna be you'll be fresh when the playoffs because Anthony Davis can take that scorn line. So can we leave it like this, the Sixers they actually have some options here, right? They have money. They have an opportunity if they're not going to resign to bias or Jimmy, maybe every signed, Jimmy, and they make a trade for Anthony Davis. They. I do have some options, one of. All right. Yeah. Yeah. You gotta resigned, one does this make with the options. The seventy Sixers have does this make them the team that's going to be in the NBA finals next year from the east, eight seven to nine ninety four ninety four, I don't even believe that they're in the Eastern Conference here in the options that they have, whether it's they bring back Jimmy Butler, and Tobias Harris, whether they make a trade and they're able to bring in a guy like Anthony Davis does that put them over the top. Do you sit at as we don't know what's going to happen? So as we sit here the day after the finals are over. Do you think based on what you've seen in the playoffs? Do you think that the Sixers are now elevated to where you're like? Yeah, I do believe the seventy Sixers are a title contender are the team is going to represent east. I don't. And it's because of Joel Embiid, Joel. Embiid is a Radic Joel Embiid. Can't stay healthy Joel and beat is too emotional. Joel Embiid is an shape right until he proves that he can be that guy. I'm not going to believe that they can't be that team. A lot of people more or less saying that they were one bad bounce away from winning an NBA title. I believe that for a second. I don't."
