"Rika Bonnie, who Wow. I need more on that. First of all, Welcome back in everybody. Rob Ellis in for Marks and Reese on this festive ists on joining us. And I, It's like I didn't even know about this. But joining us to discuss them Sixers as the season kicks off, and I didn't know he was this renowned in the wrestling circles, But he's got his own move. Now is Spike asking Spike? What is happening here, man? What is that much? There's so much you don't know about me, Rob. There's such a dark side of full of wrestling and other things. Ring Ring of Honor is is a You know, it's a terrible O w w E in terms of how big it is, but it's based here originated here in Philly and the The play by play guys Sky name in who is from here, and he told me he was like, I have a surprise coming for you tonight. This is last Friday night, and the clip came out. And there it is. So the finishing move? Yeah. I mean that you've made me forget about rights. The Ricky Sanchez podcast or anything like that. That's what you know. You've made it bad. Yeah. Come on. I don't think this is not a big deal to me. The Ring of honor, finishing move wrestling finishing move. Come on Every kid's dream. All right, So this is We got it. There's so much we need to get to here. But let me start with this one. Because Whoa, shams. All the you know all the heavy hitter. Insider guys are saying that the game tonight is gonna be postponed. Between the Rockets and the thunder. Houston basically doesn't have the required eight players to play because there's so many guys on you know, on Cove. It, uh, you know, protocol right now. What's your sense of that? And kinda? Is this going to be the recurring theme or like Jack says, Hey, it's just, you know, bumps in the road early in the season, guys will adjust. Yeah. I gotta be honest with you every time game and maybe this will make me sound insensitive and stupid. I'm being honest with you every time he gained gets postponed. Like a certain percentage of people throw their arms up in the air. Asked how they could even dream of playing, say, this is the beginning of the end. And if you just close your eyes and wait 24 hours. Everything's back on track, and, uh every everyone knew going into professional sports seasons that they would have to be flexible that there would be postponements and due to an abundance of caution, they would rather postpone a game. They go into a game with questions and this is what's going to happen. That's why they only announced the first half of the schedule. I It happened in baseball and happen in football. We finished the baseball season. We're gonna finish the football season. I just think it's something that happens, you know, and when you look at it, it's I think it's one guy that tested positive and three guys that went and got a haircut with him. I think that was the story. Um, So you know, I don't know if you get it. I don't know how close they were. And things like that. I think they're just being safe. So it doesn't. I mean, obviously, the whole thing concerns me that our lives have concerned me since March, but in terms of it being a danger for the sport to continue, I don't I don't. I don't think it threatens the season. It all stay with one of those teams. Then the Rockets hard is one of the guys who's unavailable due to a violation of the health and safety protocols. He claims he wasn't in a strip club. He was a friend. He was trying to encourage a friend who got a promotion. Whatever. I don't know what's going on. But it's been ugly for between him not reporting reporting overweight. It seems like he's doing everything that you know, grease the skids to get out of there. What's your sense of what the where that stands? If you're the Sixers, do you play the long game here, knowing his time goes on, and the more he tries to implode that thing? You know, the more desperate Houston could get. How do you view it? And would you want him to come here for Ben Simmons? Yeah. I mean, I would take him in a second. I die if it's him for Ben Simmons. I'm all in. You know when, when a player like that becomes available. It is rare that if you have the chance to acquire and the situation is going to be perfect, there's always something wrong with this situation. You know, they're just always you're always taking a chance when the Raptors Took a chance with Kwai Leonard. He ended up leaving. They want too tight over the ended up leaving, you know that they had no assurance he was going to stay. There's very little assurance in the MBA in anything more than a couple of years. You know this team we have doesn't win a title. In the next year to either Benner Joel will be gone. You know, there's no guarantee that they're here for the next decade, I think hardened for a number of reasons is handling it. Wrong. I mean, aside from the disrespect to his teammates, the disrespect to the organization's sort of disrespect and I think strategically, it's pretty dumb. Because it puts the rockets in a worst bargaining position, which makes it harder for them to pull off a trade. That doesn't that they feel good about right. And if you're James Harden I think the best thing to do is to make other teams think that Houston is willing to hold onto you, because if they think that Houston is willing to hold on, it may take more to get him and it might be more like they can pull off a trade. So You know, Every player has pulled different stuff to get out where they where they wanted to be. You know, Jimmy Butler famously berated his teammates and coaches at a practice basically the whole year in San Antonio. Yeah. So I said, you know, Anthony Davis set out for a good while basically to force himself to one team, which he ended up getting himself too. So I think James Harden will get out of there. And I think that every time he makes it more difficult to trade him. It actually has the reverse effect, you know, and I think it makes it Means that his weight maybe a little bit longer. That said, What do you think is the most likely landing spot? I just I have this feeling He wants to go to Brooklyn, and he's gonna end up in Brooklyn. I, you know. N BA teams are so fearful and the Spurs were And out liar here, But the Spurs on out liar and a number of different ways in this is that NBA teams are afraid of upsetting star players because it it makes the chance..

"A better version of the Lakers here in a couple of weeks than you're seeing right now. Six years picked up very much needed win at home last night albeit be it over the lowly Chicago Bulls Joel Embiid at Twenty eight points. While Ben Simmons put up a triple double phileas dominated bad teams all season probably because they're bad teams twenty one and six against teams below five hundred twelve and fifteen against teams above five hundred. All right nick if you had to shoes would you rather build a team around. Joel embiid or Ben Simmons because we are getting to the point where it seems like you are now going to have to choose breezy if you'd have told me when there's the four seconds left in game seven of the Eastern Conference semifinals and the sixers are down to and Jimmy Butler streaming up court seemingly neither force overtime or maybe pull up taking three. Try To win the game right there. That nine months later we'd be talking about breaking up the sixers sixers Butler would be gone that. Jj would be gone that now. We're talking about which who can you keep Benner. Joel said you're crazy. Like this is going to be filling walk walk in the east for the next decade but the way phillies played and the lack of maturity shown by their two stars and the lack of cohesiveness. which with those two guys on the court at the same time makes this legitimate question and to me? The easy answer is I'd rather build around and beat. I'd Rather Trade Simmons. I think that embiid while I don't think he has reached his full. Potential is certainly closer and a guy who has shown the ability if he can stay in shape and if he can get some of the NBA maturity stuff better in check he can be dominant force in a league that is going small. Having the biggest strongest potentially one of the toughest guys in the League can be an enormous benefit when he's as nimble as joyless shown the ability to be. Meanwhile Ben Simmons if I show you video of him and and I don't tell you what year it is. You have no idea what what you're watching whether it's first you've been second year. Ben Simmons This Year Been Simmons. He's the skill set that made him a tremendous rookie. Makes him disappointing at this point in his career to me. There's no way around that would that I do think he is trade value. I do think there'd be teams that want him teams names that don't have a big man clogging the paint that like what he could do so I would if I have to trade him Howard. I'm trading been because I do think he has enormous value and and I'm keeping Joel. I can't disagree. I can't disagree and by the way if anybody thinks. Oh It's premature or why are these people already talking about trying to break these guys up the media. He's trying to let me tell you something. This is the conversation around the entire NBA. This is what other teams are talking about to. That those two do not click well together. The sixers have hit a ceiling and that it's inevitable whether it's this summer or by next year's trade deadline whatever it's going to be. The clock is ticking. On Simmons Simmons and embiid now that's ultimately up to the sixers to decide not all of the chatterboxes around the NBA. But that is the buzz around the league and to your point Nick I Eileen and beat. Also it's not just the makeup the fact that he's a seven footer. WHO's got some guard skills? It could do damage inside and out and the power and the Nimble nece all of that. It's that Joel embiid cares. I liked seeing tears from Joel. EMBIID's is after they were eliminated by the raptors. I liked the passion. That was behind that now. If you want to say. Yeah but he didn't follow up he didn't come back in the best shape or he didn't find I get that he cares. I look at Ben Simmons and I don't know sometimes James He is so just just kind of emotionless. I don't even know how he just just very stoic out there and that doesn't not necessarily mean you don't care right. Kawhi Leonard showed us you can be stoic and still have a great passion burning inside Qu is also shown us how much he cares by every single year of his career. Yes coming back with the new skill or an improve still or police players to us. You can if you're not going to tell us you care through your emotions you have to show Louis Shukeir through the evolution of your game so to speak and we just haven't made. I was genuine. Remember a couple years ago. I was as big of a Ben. Simmons was because I said we focus on the one thing he does poorly instead of all the other things he does great and the argument was of course. He'll get better at that one thing but he hasn't and he had maybe maybe he's tried to get better in practice. But in the Games there's been no evidence whatsoever that he has any willingness. Shoot the basketball and that at this point in twenty twenty. You can't win that way. The thing that concerns me the most nick was earlier. I think it was in this series. Museum the preseason where when the subject came up of his refusal to shoot in his reticence to shoot it was basically. I'm an all star like that was an actual exchange that happened. You can't think that way you know we're all talking about for the last few weeks all the lessons. We learned from Kobe Bryant in his career. What did Kobe do consistently throughout his career? He worked on his game. He strove to get better and he constantly added things. Nobody can come into this league. No matter how talented you are and so you know what I'm GonNa all star laurels. It just doesn't work that way not in the NBA. And we're not in a place in time right now where you're GonNa have a head coach that's going to force for C.. To do certain things that you don't want to do in the question with this team now becomes what's more likely to happen. Ben Simmons Learns How to shoot or Joel embiid gets in shape that kind of shape. You want to see him play. I and I think you guys are both saying Joel. EMBIID is the one that's most likely Howard. I've seen Joylin shape and and I think one of the things where I try to be fair with you. All I'm standing might have some eating habit habit issues. Whatever that is because he's at injury issues and because he's so big he can't do the regular conditioning guys need to do? He's going to have to at times. Play his way into shape. Because key can't do all of the off season things cardiovascular wise that you would need to do Rian tiptop shape because he does have to be careful on his lower our body in the lower extremities and him rot running five miles for example takes more wear and tear than just about any other player in the league. Other than other other than Marjanovic. You know what I mean running five miles because of how big is and so I do. I don't want to give them say I give him a pass but I understand it. The Simmons stuff's inexcusable fan hand. And the attitude stuff that you you. You're much closer league circles than I am but I still hear certain things I mean. People do wonder is Ben Simmons more infatuated with being a star. Then he is with being a star player like that is a real. I don't know been so I can't speak into it. I know that is whether it's true or not. A question people around the League have about it and it's not an unusual and I don't know when Ben Simmons well enough to know either whether that's the case but it is the case that happens with NBA players right. We know that this happens. There are some guys who are more about the lifestyle and the limelight and the pay day than they are about a passion passion for winning and again this goes back to my just distance observation of these two guys embiid has a passion and carrying there that you can see that's evident. His emotions are on his sleeve. Ben Simmons does not it makes me wonder one quick follow point because Ben Simmons might be on the trade block this summer. This was one of the reasons that I thought that Golden Gordon State trade was such an abomination that if the warriors and the number one pick they have the worst record. I know you're far from it. I wonder what Phillies says to de Ngelo Russell Russell in the number one pick four cents can do better. You think who can do but I think the sixers can do better. If Simmons is on the block they are going to be able to do better than even that. Okay Fair enough because I think been actually would fit great in Golden State. Because he doesn't need to shoot because you have all the shooting the world around you and I think will be much better fit next to Joel even though Ben might be a better player than de Ngelo Russell. It's just the been simmons comes available. I think there's going to be a lot of people feel like we can fix what ails them or we. We don't want won't even ask him to change. Because we don't have Joel embiid clawing in pain. Look we've done the sixers so many times. Every time we finish could easily say the same sentence you can count on one hand the amount of times times. Ben Simmons is shot a three point. What is it? Three or four has more threes than he does talks football now onto.

You can tell us you care through your emotions you have to show us you care or through the evolution of your game so to speak and we just haven't made I was Jin remember couple of years ago.

And and and the attitude stuff that you you're much closer league circles than I am but I still hear certain things I mean. People do wonder is Ben. Simmons ends more infatuated with being a star. Then he is with being a star player like that is a real. I don't know been so I can't speak to it. I know that is whether it's true or not.

EMBIID has a passion and a caring there that you can see. That's evident. His emotions are on his sleeve. Ben Simmons it does not it makes me wonder one quick. Follow Point because Ben Simmons beyond the trade block this summer. This was one of the reasons that I thought that Golden State trade was such an abomination that if the warriors and up with the number one pick which was the worst record. I know you're far from it. I wonder what Phillies says to Diangelo. Russel in the number pick four can do better you think who can do but I think the sixers can do better if Simmons is on the block. They're going to be able to do better than even that. Okay Fair enough because I think ben actually would fit great in golden state because he doesn't need to shoot because you have all the shooting the world around you and I think de Ngelo Russell be much better fit next to Joel even though Ben might be a better player than de Ngelo Russell. It's just the been simmons comes available. I think there's GonNa be a lot of people feel like we can fix what ails them or. We don't even won't won't even ask him to change because we don't have. Joel embiid clawing pain look. We've done the sixers so many times. Every time we finish I could easily say the same sentence you can count on one hand the amount of time. It's Ben Simmons Simmons's shot a three point shot. What is it three or four more threes than he does.
