35 Burst results for "Sixers"
Embiid returns from injury, powers 76ers past Hawks 104-101
"Well then basically the final 1376 is points in the fourth quarter to help Philadelphia for a one O four one O one win and basic consecutive baskets to give the sixers a one point lead with 18 seconds to play. It then had three straight free throws that sealed the victory. I just wanted to come in and fit in and, you know, whenever I was needed, that's when I felt like I needed to turn it off. And they'd finished with a game high 30 points to buy as Harris at a 24 Trae Young and Deandre hunter had 18 for Atlanta. Michael luongo, Philadelphia.
Packed Black Friday sports schedule
"AP sports I'm Tom Miriam. On Black Friday, the NBA and NHL were as busy as the shopping malls. 14 NBA games and 13 on the ice were played the day after both leagues were off for Thanksgiving. The Celtics added to their league leading record by beating searching Sacramento as Jason Tatum scored 30 with help from the Boston bench. I think when we might have been down for the end of the half of ten, he knows because of those guys came in and just changed the momentum. The bucks kept pace by beating the Cavaliers thanks largely to a 35, ten third quarter in which Bobby port has played a key role. Felt good for us overall as a basketball team, because it felt like we was playing books, basketball, for a chance. Victories also for the Lakers heat suns, warriors, nuggets, grizzly sixers pacers, rockets, thunder hornets, and the trailblazers in overtime over the Knicks. NHL, the bruins became the first team to win its first 12 home games in the season, as they beat the hurricanes three to two in overtime on David pasternak's gold. Big win for us, obviously, and coming from behind, you know, after Thanksgiving, the game is never easy, so it's good with. The devil's after having their 13 game win streak snap bounced back with a three one win in Buffalo. Other winners, the capitals penguins islanders red wings, Maple Leafs Canadians kraken jets, senators kings and lightning, with Braden points scoring too early goals. I think both teams were into it right away. It was nice to get a couple goals for us early. Pretty good jump on the game. I thought it was a fun game. World Cup soccer, the United States finished in a scoreless tie with England as coach Greg berhalter's young team had the better scoring chances. Overall, pleased with the performance of the group, most importantly, the belief of the group, because that never wavered. The U.S. now must be to ran on Tuesday to advance to the knockout round. Plenty of college action on Black Friday, football winners included four ranked teams tulane, Florida state UCLA and Texas, and basketball top ranked North Carolina lost a wire with state.

Dinesh Welcomes Zuny Tarrio, Mom of Proud Boys Leader Enrique Tarrio
"I'm really happy to welcome to the podcast Sunni tarrio. She's the mom of Enrique Henry tarrio. He's the leader of the group that is known as the Proud Boys. Sunni, welcome to the podcast. Thank you for joining me. This is a pretty serious situation because you've got your son incarcerated along with some of these other Proud Boys and facing charges that seem to me to be just downright ridiculous, which is charges of conspiracy, I assume conspiracy to overthrow the government. And yeah, as far as I can see, your son Enrique was an even in Washington, D.C. on the day of the January 6th. He wasn't even there. So I'd like you to tell your story and tell Enrique's story from your point of view. So we can understand a little better what is really going on here. Mister de Sosa, first I'd like to thank you. It's really an honor to be on your podcast. Your great with RJ sixers with this cause. So we really want to appreciate you even listening to us. Enrique tarrio is my son. He was an ex chairman for the Proud Boys. Has now been incarcerated for a 175 days. Of which not only me, but none of the mothers have been able to see their sons. Children have not been able to see their fathers. They have been given no bond. They have been given actually stripped of all the rights. And just to think that these men that had no arms were trying to overthrow the government is just like a ridiculous thing from any point of view. Enrique was not even in D.C. on January 6th. He had been taken on custody the day before. So he wasn't even there. You know, these guys are fathers, husbands, brothers that have missed up children's birthdays that have missed, and we could just missed his grandmother's funeral last week. So this is a very hurtful situation and again, it's a very scary and serious situation. And that's how we see it.

Incarcerated Political Prisoner Jake Lang Calls in From Prison
"Very pleased to welcome to the podcast Jake Lang. Now Jake is actually calling in from prison from incarceration. He's a 27 year old January 6th political prisoner. He has been incarcerated for over 540 days. He and his team recently released the film, it's called the truth about January 6th, Debbie and I watched it last night. You can watch it a J 6, the number 6 truth dot org. It's intended to bring truth and awareness to what happened on January 6th. Jacob, thank you so much for calling in. I know that your free time is, well, you get so little of it and it's a little shocking to me that you have been incarcerated for over a year, when is your trial scheduled? Hey, Jeanette, God bless you. Thanks for having me. My trial is not till January 9th, 2023, two years being a political prisoner in this country without a free and fair trial, speedy trial. No constitutional rights anymore, man. I mean, this is so outrageous. And is it the reason is the reason for your incarceration, the judge's determination that you are somehow a danger to the community, they feel like you're a threat if they let you go home and show up for trial when you're due. Yeah, I say, I say that that position that all these judges are taking as politically biased, they need to hold some of us for their democratic handlers. To basically show fidelity to the Democratic Party and not let the January sixers go home and await trial like normal
"sixers" Discussed on Open Floor: SI's NBA Show
"But with this game, I'm kind of like, I don't know, I feel like there are little bullet points of data points that are intriguing going forward. For example, I wrote this yesterday up on the site, a piece about just kind of assessing hardens first month in Philadelphia and how the sixers looked on both ends with him and what it kind of portended for the future. And one of the elements that concerned me a little bit is they're spacing. And they're inability to space the floor. Or just that being a question mark, I think, going forward, when you play Matisse Val as many minutes as it seems like they might have to play him Tobias Harris isn't a great defender either, but it's also been unwilling to take wide open threes and looks a little bit uncomfortable doing so. And you go up and down the list, if you were to play lineups that are the best kind of spot up three point shooters for this team, then you really limit yourself with playmaking and you really limit yourself on the defensive end as well. And I just thought that was interesting watching last night, Seth curry is guarding Matisse thal and he's, you know, Seth curry is obviously not the greatest defender he's not the biggest player, but his ability to kind of re havoc as the low man and help really early when thigh bowl is standing in the weak side corner or even when thy ball is he's doing those back cuts along the baseline, but South Korea is kind of twisting it, he's got his head on a swivel, making sure that Bible doesn't creep too close to the rim and get an easy layup. And the space sign is just like, it's terrible. And it's kind of reminiscent of the situation that Hardin was in Brooklyn when he was so unhappy when Joe Harris wasn't there, Kyrie wasn't there. Katie wasn't there..
"sixers" Discussed on The Lowe Post
"Between Kyrie and Hart. And Zach, we can go on and on about the Simmons stuff, and it is fascinating. But Kyrie said, after that Charlotte game, he was the communication with Hardin had been better at the end, Hardin was the one go back two months ago to that game in Chicago where they just kicked the bull's ass in the second half and hardened stands up from the little podium and goes, I'm gonna give Kyrie's a shot myself. I don't think Kyrie, particularly like that. And I don't think James particularly like playing without Kyrie and all these games because he's not vaccinated. So I'm already tired. I'm already tired of going back into it. The reason they were so locked in wasn't just we've got Ben's back. The reason that Kyrie and Kevin were so locked in was also that they were trying to send a little message back to Hardin and saying, hey, you quit on us. We wanted you here. We wanted you to be part of this and win a title with us. You quit, and now we're going to kick your ass all night. And we are going to show Simmons and play at the seeds in his head that this is the team that he is with now and moving forward and we will be there for him when he's ready to roll. Any interactions between Simmons and anybody with the sixers because usually you see guys come out even you'll see it on TV. Even if they don't want to go dap up their former costar teammate with whom there's some tension of the coach, they'll hit the security guys. You'll see a couple of trainers or whatever sort of step out a protocol and give the guy a hug. Anything did he avoid the bench? What was it like? He walked by the bench to start the second half, a little before, halftime was ending. He gave Doc, a little half hearted, and looked like he talked to a couple of the security guys. And a couple people on the bench, but it was very cold. It was interesting to me before the game started before he had walked out there with patty mills onto the floor. He was talking to like the social media guy, I think, from the sixers or one of the social media people. And the security guards and I have never seen this because we live in a world where everybody's got their phone out and they're taking pictures or video all the time. The security guards are screaming at people. No video, no video, and I'm thinking, was that Simmons send something? Was that the nets being ultra protective, but it was just an odd scene because he was walking through a building that of course he knew so well. And there were people that he went out of his way to say hello to and have a moment with, but there were not a lot of teammates. Former teammates that he appeared to have those couple of seconds with. And that's all well and good because it just felt like when you're watching two parents, two sides of a divorce, meet back up at a family function for the first time. It was cold. It was awkward. And it was something, frankly, at least from the net perspective, Zach that had to happen. They felt like mentally, Simmons had to go through what he did last night because they feel like it will prepare him not only for whenever he does come back and play in the next couple of weeks, but for whenever that return game in Philly's gonna be especially if it's in some kind of postseason series. But it was a mental hurdle that they felt like he had to clear and they did the best they could to clear it with him and control what they could on the floor. It probably is, it was a mental hurdle. I just think it's like it's the hurdle that the little kids use when they're learning track. Like the real hurdle, the one you gotta actually like run full speed and jump over and then if I tried to jump over, I'd hit it with my knee and fall and hit my face on the floor. That hurdle is coming when you actually have to play like sitting on the bench they forget about you and then it's a blowout I didn't even hear any chance in like the second half of the game directed Adam or anything like that. He didn't exactly what I would have done. I would have said let me step in. I can't avoid the game. I gotta go because otherwise it's a whole thing and I look weak and I am weak. I gotta go. But I want to sit on the bench and just be there and feel it and absorb it before I go full blast and have to play in front of those fans have to shoot free throws in front of those fans have to pass up jump shots in front of those fans. So wake me up when that happens. Hardin, you mentioned James Harden. Three of 17, four turnovers, 11 points. Look, James Harden's had some big playoff games by the numbers by raw numbers is a playoff numbers are what they are. You can look back at the game log and say, oh, look at you at 30 points in this game four and 29 points here and his 2019 series against the warriors in the conference, so my final is the average like 30 a game. I watched all the games. I went back and watched all the crunch times. I went back and watched all the last 5 minutes of every close game. I know how that series in 2019 against the warriors when his raw numbers were so good. I know how it ended. It ended with Kevin Durant getting hurt in game 5 the door opening and the rockets falling on their faces and then smacking their head on the doorknob on the way out trying to get out the door and getting roasted on their home floor and James Harden coughing up like four heinous turnovers in the fourth quarter of that game. I know what his shooting percentages are in the last three minutes of close playoff games. They're really bad. They're way worse than you would expect even if you expect shooting percentages to go down and crunch time against great defenses. I know it is turnover rate in those minutes. It's really bad. I watched them all. I know that his best playoff games, some of them many of them a disproportionate amount of them are Houston down three O in the first round and explodes for 41. Who gives a. Houston down three one. I know that a lot of his crunch time baskets 'cause I watch all of them are Houston down 8 with 30 seconds left. Here have a layup. We just don't want you to get a three. Not a lot. A disproportionate number. And so I see a game like this and Nick, right away in the first quarter, there was a play that stood out to me and we were playing it a little bit today. He has on the left wing, he drove in, I think off a pick and roll from embiid and Durant was guarding the guy in the corner. And Durant stunted out at Hardin and Doran's big and long and scary when he gets in your way and help defense. And harden rather than playing basketball, saw Durant reach out, picked up the dribble like 14 feet out of the rim and puked up this attempt at something and it was, it was a signal to me that he doesn't want to play basketball today. He's trying to game the game. He's just trying to play for a foul. And he just, I don't want to say James Harden is a FrontRunner, but he has a little bit of a FrontRunner thing to him when it's easy and everything's we're cruising. We're beating people, the step backs rolling like he's full throttle. When people punch him in the face a little bit, he has a tendency in some of these games to sort of retreat a little bit and I thought he retreated last night. I'm not going to go overreact to one game. I don't really care what he does in the regular season. I care what he does in the playoffs. I'm not going to overreact to it, but it wasn't.
"sixers" Discussed on The NBA Show
"Down. Ben Simmons have resplendent in Pittsburgh penguins color Louis Vuitton hockey Jersey that was like right off the back of yarra Maria. And it was just like hanging out on the end of the bench was politely getting up in golf clapping like any run of play that was good for the nets and that was quite frequently so he was up and down from his seat a lot. The back didn't seem to be bothering him. And yeah, I think he got an earful and after the game KD was certainly like at the end of the game they were booing. They weren't saying Ben Simmons sucks. There was actually more nets fans here than sixers fans. So you got to take your medicine, but to your hardened point. I'm going to ask this knowing the answer. Do you think that this is an aberration? Or do you think that this is a cause for concern for sixers fans? I think it just highlights exactly what it is hardened. The pressure that is on harden right now, because it was, I would say it's not an aberration, I think you knew that's probably what you thought I was going to say, just because of the way that it happened to. It really just had all of the makings of a hardened playoff collapse or a hard and big game collapse. We start off with a little bit a little bit timid. And then we get into the things that I asked tactically kind of consistently happen with him where you open that game and it doesn't really matter who's guarding Kevin Durant. Although Tobias Harris can not be the answer. But it doesn't really matter. You put the Bible on him, it doesn't really matter. Bible can't guard Durant and Irving at the same time. So they're going to have to come up with something for that. No, I think he tried to jump between both and pretty much everybody else in the court today. Pretty strange, weird, crazy game from my favorite player, but you know, you get into the stuff that we see with Hardin. The nets have a lot of physical defenders, and they're actually kind of filled to the brim with guys that you'd kind of want to have guarding James Harden, right? You have Bruce Brown, you got James Johnson. Katie and Kyrie spent some time on him. And they obviously have guarded him before. They know what it's like. But pretty much like the hodgepodge of players that we have talked about on the nets, will they be able to kind of have a use for all of them in the playoffs? That doesn't really necessarily feel like a question to me in a hypothetical sixers net series because those are all the types of guys that you'd want to be able to have against harden and say, yeah, we can afford to take 6 vowels on you, which is not going to happen because we have KD and Kyrie on our team and just try to see if that's called 6 vowels on them in the playoffs. Again, and again and again, it's not going to happen. Yeah, there's a couple of things in this stats category that we will get to. I think really leap out about what the sixers were trying to do there, which I thought was kind of naive and whether we want to get into that stock's fault or the sixers fault, but yeah, I definitely picked up on that as well. Before we get on to the emotional part about it, I did want to mention one other possible storyline coming out of this. This might be actually a little bit galaxy brain, but I still want to throw it out there. Which is the nets needed this game more than the sixers. So the nets have Kyrie four more times in the regular season if the vaccine mandate rules don't change in New York City because they're playing the Knicks twice. They have a batch of home games. So they basically have four more Kyrie appearances for the rest of the regular season. They're currently at 500. They're doing fine or whatever, and I'm sure they'll make the playoffs. But I do think that this was like in the same way that the Lakers needed to beat the warriors more than the warriors needed to be the Lakers. The nets needed to beat the sixers just as badly as the sixers needed to beat the nets if not more. And I wonder if in the spin zone of the NBA, like you could make the argument that it's like the sixers are worried about. They're now 5 and two in the 6 games since harden or 7 games since harden's been traded. They're doing fine. Maybe it's even good for them to be in the three seeds so they don't see the nets coming out of the plane. There's all sorts of stuff you could say, but I do wonder whether you could say well the nets really needed that one. See, I like that you got that out of your system before we really dive into the emotions with this kind of, you have done the classic disassociation stuff. You've seen it from the other person's side. Your emotions first. And you're like, well, hey, what do I have to be worried about? Maybe the other guy should actually be worried. We call that projecting, actually. But I would play around with his take if not for the nature of this victory for the nets because they are very much a team that is hypothetical. And up until the playoffs, like they are very much going to continue to be hypothetical. We'll see when Ben's back, but hopefully those games do coincide with the games that Kyrie can actually play. But that said, the nature of this SmackDown was just a little too much to really, I don't think you can spin this one. It almost gave me shades of the rockets versus warriors. In the playoffs, the way that the game would just kind of get bogged down into tunnel vision for harden and Chris Paul and everybody else would just be standing around watching and the funny thing is they were all kind of, they run the same plays now ever since harden went over to the sixers, but the play style of the best players is what it really comes down to because the way that the nets just kind of got the sixers to get bogged down. Like there's two ways to look at it. I think if you want to spin this, the best way to spin it is just to say that the sixers really just didn't try. And we don't know why. We don't know why..

But man, you had a chance to tie that game up there at the end. I didn't like that class. I don't know. I saw Tatum kind of waiting for the ball and he had almost four seconds to get a shot off. I would have probably just done that. Instead of do the yeah, do the thing where you don't throw it into triple coverage. Yeah. That would have probably not done a bad football play. Yeah. Brady. Story of the game really just comes down to the last few minutes, Celtics, it was an 18 to 6 run over the final three 40 with a little over four minutes to go. Celtics take a 97 90 lead. Click the freaking head. Think about that. Put the hammer down, guys. It's a 7 point lead with four minutes ago. Put the hammer down. Right. Similarly, do you have your two best players in the game? There's no excuse. And I know you've got problems in your down bigs tonight. No, but is it disappointing? You said it best. Right, like having cancer at the end of the game, obviously is an ideal. But at the same idea, you had a 7 point lead in the fourth quarter. I get it. Out there, I know dwell indeed is, you know, he's a tough down the stretch. He's that guy that can do what he did. But still, the execution wise, it was just poor. And you look at it an opportunity for someone like Payton Pritchard and it's like, come on, man. Those are the games that something's usually win when the unsung hero comes up big down the stretch, a big three, what was it three straight possessions he knocked down three shots? I mean, this is the kind of game we were looking for out of like a nee Smith or like a Romeo and Pritchard, you get it from printer to get it into a short handed sixers team and you don't capitalize, man. I don't know. So that's kind of what's the point of laws in my opinion, because that's kind of what I'm going to talk about very winnable game. Yeah. Totally. Pritchard. Pritchard didn't necessarily need to come out of that game. No. I didn't hate that. Yeah. Pritchard was Pritchard was great here. Wait, what are you doing? Are you saying something? What do you mean? I'm just saying, I'm just trying to figure out exactly where it.
"sixers" Discussed on The NBA Show
"Like when you look at the sixers, the hole that they have is a Ben Simmons sized hole. The contours of a 6 foot ten man who can run like a deer. I don't know. Who could that? Who could that shadow be? You know, possibly shut down Gabe Vincent. You know, maybe maybe that's not too much to ask. You know, like that kind of thing. I think you and I have always been in our conversations like outside of like podcasting and stuff like pretty pro Ben as like a concept as like a player within the sixer system. And I weirdly find myself getting a little bit more frustrated watching Joelle than I ever do getting watching Ben. And I know that's saying something since Ben Simmons literally became a performance art piece during the hawk series in the playoffs last season. But like, you know, watching Joel embiid not score for the last 15 minutes of the game, getting two really ugly looks. And a lot of that is down to I don't think a single player on the sixers knows how to throw an entry pass. I honestly do wonder they've got coaches for everything in video analysts for everything. Should they just hire John Stockton to be like, you bend over here and throw the bounce pass to his right hip so that he can continue his. Do you know what I mean? Like there's some basics here that are missing. But yeah, like I kind of still pine for Simmons. But to this exact point, this roster was built not solely around Joel embiid. It was designed around the contours of Ben and Joe. And they don't have personnel to immediately fill those gaps as good as tyrese maxi has been, and he's adorable, exciting, talented, young guy with a lot of upside. He's a very different player than Ben Simmons. You know, he is not the guy that just creates transition opportunities and creates open threes and brings this odd mix of speed and size and basketball IQ. This is not a knock on him, he's just a different person. And I don't know how you find those attributes that Simmons offers because in my opinion, you know, I'm a big Simmons fan. I think he's a great player. I think his scarcity is what makes him so valuable and has such an impact on winning games. There just are not elite shutdown perimeter defenders in the NBA. There aren't that many guys who are great facilitators to have both of them in one man. It's like the 96 summer jam or however you would put it in the rat parlance. Do you think that some of what's happening is a bit of an indictment on what Tobias Harris is in the NBA right now. In terms of, you know, there is a version of this sixers team, I think, where and bead is carrying the weight for most of the game for the first three quarters of the game, but as things get a little tighter and maybe he gets a little bit winded. A perimeter offensive playmaker is able to get his own shot and especially in clutch just like create offense for himself. And that's where Simmons is typically become marginalized at the end of games when his file shooting or is just lack of jump shooting and his lack of ability to space the floor comes into play. And then I think this season was like primed for that's what the money's for Tobias. That's why you're paid the way you are. And yeah, you're a third option, but this is where you become a second option. What is like the sort of ripple effect of Tobias style on the sixers in general? Well, I think there is a point to be made that the current Philadelphia offense looks surprisingly like the playoff Philadelphia offense when Ben Simmons was ushered out of the half court offense and told the stand in a corner. And he got a lot of blame for that, but you look at the offense now and it's so weird that looks exactly like the team when Simmons wasn't given the ball enough. And I was shrieking like a banshee that they need to give bend the ball, clear the floor and let him attack. And that's where we've seen maxi do a lot of damage. So I think in the case of Tobias Harris, he's one of those guys who's always been the same player his entire career. And I don't know if he can step up. I don't know if he's playing significantly worse. He just strikes me as being the same guy always. And at times the jumpers are falling. Sometimes they're not. I don't think he is a great player. I don't think he's a bad player. Yeah, me neither. I do understand that he is now a target of scapegoating and there are a lot of people saying, well, it's to bias that's the problem. Man, this has been the same Tobias that's been on like 27 different teams and kind of put up the same stats as entire career, except for some hot shooting streaks here and there. So like I kind of find him blameless because this is who he is. It's interesting that he's having at least in terms of perception. I don't have the numbers right in front of me comparing this to that breakout clippers here that he was having when that sort of everybody is everybody has abandoned lob city, but Tobias is here. Clippers team that was kind of a really fun inspirational squad. But him being at least in pedigree, the best player on that team compared to I think he's supposed to be obviously in the current roster construction. The third option on this sixers team and somebody who can officially get a variety of kinds of offense and be really useful. But when you push them up to two and when you make him the best perimeter offensive player that we've got, then it just becomes like an unfair kind of spotlight goes on. I mean, one thing for him is that he's just shooting really poorly from three. We know he's hesitant to just let it rip, but I think him shooting below his career average from deep is also an impediment to him really letting him fly. So his field goal percentage is right with career averages. He's just missing a lot of jumpers in the way that he was not doing last year. I don't know if there's a trickle down effect from Simmons absence where he's not getting the same looks and transition because we know Philly can't run it all now. They're 30th and the league in pace. But my upside for Tobias here is that he's a pretty consistent guy so I would hope that those numbers will edge back up and he'll kind of hit his averages. I don't think he's a 31% three point shooter. I think he's a pretty league average. The guy across the board and we kind of joke about him being like net zero because he is like right in the middle there of the crosshairs of like, this is the average NBA player. Like he can do a lot of things pretty well, but none of them brilliantly. And solid player, not bad. Expensive for net zero though. The price tag is a little hot and is immovable because that's like I mean, as we're getting into these as we're getting into trade season in full, obviously the sixers are going to be at the forefront of all these kinds of conversations. And look, there's in my mind there's the ideal version of this where it's like Daryl calls David Griffin is just like you've got a problem I've got a problem Simmons for Ingram. Let's do it. And I don't know whether or not that he's Ingram to duplicative with Tobias in terms of some of the physical space they occupy the kind of game that they like to play is Ingram of quote unquote fit within B, I couldn't tell you, but Ingram certainly a more exciting prospect than nothing..
"sixers" Discussed on The Crossover NBA Show with Chris Mannix
"When they are defensively tenacious, it's about Marcus smart. When it's about their intensity, it's about Marcus smart. But it's about somebody being willing to step up and say something, even if maybe he went a little too far publicly, he was the one who called out the stars for not moving the ball more. And they got to bounce off that. They got to bounce off that. They did. So I'll be afraid to give up somebody who brings all that to the table. Do I want Marcus smart as my primary point guard? No, I don't think that's his best role, but I love him as a player and I mean, listen, on the other end, you're talking how are you talking about the blazers? We both agree. Stale, right? Something's going to change. And that's exactly the case. They're the same. Maybe you're maybe you're swapping out pieces and it's not going to work, but the Celtics aren't going anywhere. At some point. Yeah. It's the same thing. At some point too how are you? I think jaylen brown's got two years left in his contract, you know, Tatum's gotta think one more, you sort of start thinking about that long term. I just gotta shake things up there. You gotta do something different. And Brad Stevens is not shown any hesitancy to do that. He shook up the roster. This past off season a little bit, Kemba's gone, fournier's gone. They made a couple of deals. I trade the young guys if they have any value now. He made yoga does not like playing young players. I don't know why. Like, Romeo Langford finally got off the bench or started playing more minutes against Phoenix. You had arone Smith finally getting off the bench against Phoenix didn't play well. Peyton Pritchard can barely get off the bench with that team. These young players are not getting shots in Boston. If they have any trade value, give them all up, like clearly the south aren't gonna play them. But if you could do smart, rob Williams and whatever else they want, besides Jayson Tatum and jaylen Brown, I would do it. I'm just do it. And I'd live with being able to fill in the space around McCollum, Brown and Jayson Tatum. Yeah, I mean, I agree that the Celtics also have to do something more creative and bold. And if you're gonna stick with brown and Tatum, then smart is your only other big chip. They should trickle Brown Tatum though like this like I'm not there yet. McCollum and Lillard, I think we've established anything. I'm not there yet with brown potatoes. He's missed a bunch of time this year. And the critics of jaylen Brown disappeared in this recent road trip when he wasn't playing. It's like, well, we're getting jaylen Brown back this week. We'll be all right. So I'm not there with brown and Tatum not working. The reason they're not analogous is, I mean, one, just longevity..

"This was fun. man. I appreciate you. What's yours you're wearing by the way this is embiid. Ray jersey from there all Years ago one of four sixers said this one. A white ben simmons dursey than to blue ones mature tires. Maxima t stibal which is interesting because the other three Beat all could have very likely been traded at different points this season. So you know. That's at least one consolation i have is that i all those. This is still a sixers alternate jersey. Yeah no. I love the grays on the grade. How do you feel about the black alternate. Though i kinda like everyone is really like on sixers. Twitter doesn't like them while there won't be so you're thinking it's a rip off of the ira symbol actors these which they the sixers the the sexiest. pr staff. At and t's maybe those jerseys were coming back in the sectors. It'd be wearing those this year. So that's kind of why people don't like the black jerseys think they look like they're not ugly. I think when you're watching game it's although it's kind of funny. Both the wizards in the sixers played with a task to the rest. Which i thought because they were in black and gray and you know obviously the wrestler in black and gray so i thought that was kind of funny but They're generally like they're not as good as a black jersey. Should be for the sixers. So it's a little bit. But it's i mean there have been worse jerseys. Obviously the gnaws fair enough bring back the bring back the og blackened black alz those were From the first ireson run necessary. I like that's should always be in rotation but nike so now have have five new jersey's every year mark. Oh exactly because it's the only way we can force people buy new ones see. I just think why not find what if we just had like three rotating alter something and you could bring in a new one every year or something like at some point. It's not as cool when every team's jerseys completely different every year like there has to be like take some cool ones like the grizzlies should wear. The grizzlies can have those vancouver throwbacks time. I love those jerseys like us all the time. Like switch through the more. Why does miami half to retire the vice jerseys that everyone liked to like though original like white miami vice jerseys. Those were awesome. They were so good it was like. Why don't they just wear these every game. It looks so good but instead it's different every year has to be we now. We have to retire them. It's like no you don't like also k. Wurster why did the heat in the bucks go dark green versus mustard yellow. Yeah those terrible man about that. I was appalling link. Why again i love. Referencing means live on. Podcast it's like anything it's one you know the moment. It's like it's unnecessary. There's no reason. Yeah those ads with action. Bronson is necessary. That was exactly watching the pacers yesterday. It's like who asked for this color matchup. No-one did no one wanted. This like neither team could wear white. Yeah it was a it was gross. And i'd like to see better but it's better than the gobert tide is the that miami's been wearing this year. So that makes it looking broker phone screen. Yeah it's awful..

"Today is one of his best games as a six. Or i thought you played really good defense on a bradley beal when benson's was out there And i thought he did some some quality stuff in just you know. Dumping the ball off to tobias harris in in taking open shots How'd you feel about george today. And how he factors in moving forward a great game from georgia. I really liked it to you. Said defensively just another guide. Pretty quick long arms. The you know the sixers type as far as wing defenders go then offense like he had a few of those drives just. He is very normal guard. He just helped your team a lot in a lot of normal ways. He makes three from their opening. Can take a few shots off the dribble he can get to the rim. If asked like does all those little things that are fine your team. He's not outlined good anything but he contributes in all those ways and then i mean one thing i liked said there was the one back door the back door but west brooklyn to double d. Don't have enough pass that. In the next time down when they entered in denby hills and get on the same side any made that same cuts but like from a slightly different angle and thing is since. He scored on the wizards kinda like spa in westbrook and some other vendors. Were paying attention to help you to score that and then be drove baseline for a score. So it's just got anything like we as you know there's a lot of talk about how cutting opens is another way to open up spacing. That's signed george hill. Does well to. It's like you just at the right time with his like since he can finish in generally good player like teams. Do pay attention to money. Cuts are not ignoring him so in that can open up embiid too so yeah i thought was a really good game from george hill. Yeah so that leads means in my first quicker than because I guess i would just ask. Who else are you confident off the bench because the bench unit was not a bright spot today especially when they went all bench with with tobias and even when they had the bench with tobias bias in sat there was still pretty shaky Especially shake far. I laugh at myself sometimes But yeah well. I mean we're we're you out with that. Yeah of so like if you're going for guys. Trust dr benjamin. George hill is one of them. Trust him for sure in. Like i know the minutes don't always great but i mean you need a backup center in. I think tweet howard is perfectly find that all year we still had some good moments day even if there was some slopes from time to time but dwight his finest backup center. Trust him and then you start to get into well okay. Who are we really going with. You're not a ton of minutes from t- stibal day but like in sober. The trust in him is of course. None of it is like offensively. it's all rooted in. I trust that his defense is good enough to outweigh. How much can hurt the offense. At times. And i still think he's at least a little bit better than like. Say someone like a tony allen on offense from back in the day just because he will take a few threes and make a few of them even if he didn't today..

"Green south korean there. There's easier to build up a wall against ben on when he's trying to get to the rim all kinds of stuff it's like so much of the sixers identy flows out of embiid being who he is. But you know even if you'd like an aisles upset sixers could have played them a little more in the second half because he wasn't in foul trouble and he had gotten basically all the rest you would get in a normal game. All almost all met first half of sitting south dropping only played ten minutes. In the. I ask so i was kind of thinking. Doc like why are you sticking with normal rotation serious basically the normal rotations already got thrown off today. So but you know it's like you saw its final minutes. He basically just closed the game out with like three or four really hard contested. Mid-range jumpers some off the dribble. Some really hard angles. Which i mean. It's still craziest thing. That's all these years to six are struggling to shoot embiid basically decided this year. He's gonna become like elite mid range shooter and it's made all the difference in the world and that's what again today so like you know not as not the best playoff game and beads overplayed but a stillie. It's probably up. There is a very very good one because in the end of the day was really great. Like he's been all season. Yeah definitely i think My thing to just moving towards maybe adjustments. That'll happen a throughout the series. How do you feel not even just the series but like looking forward. How do you feel about the like the depth that The doc wants embiid drop because there were a lot of times today where i mean he was playing a little bit more center fuel but mostly deep drop and i mean it works again but like there was enough where it's like okay. Guys getting a runway Easy floaters easy. Mid range stuff I mean do you want to see that. Change at all or like it. That was one of the few things where i think i've looked at a lot with phillies defense. Granted they turn it on when they need to and they're they. They still had a good defensive game regardless or not. Awesome like a solid defensive game given the offense or playing but That's one of the things. I really look at wanting to see implemented more as the playoffs. Start to go on. I think that they really have that up their sleeve. And just haven't shown a whole with a lot of regularity and consistency..

As always we want to hear from you get your feedback. Course read us over there as well really be joined by a good friend of mine today and a happy sixers fan. After today's game. Dan allender from over at liberty ballers as well as inside and you. Dan how are you doing it then like you said a happy success at the moment stress. Sixers fan through. I mean technically. I can't hide the sixers fan museum supposed to be covering them. I knew dead like covering a pacers indie cornrows that you like you try to be as neutrals possible. I think it works out for me. Because i'm a fan but i'm always a pessimistic family. I did not take the sixers to win the title. I'm always very worried about them. Backfield trying to be rational about their flaws. But yeah i'm happy right now because they pulled out that way definitely man i. We have a lot to dive into. I wanna talk a little bit about the game. I you know. I'm not really a full game recap or anything but Definitely talk little bit about the series and where they're headed to number one. Tobias harris had a fantastic game today finished with thirty seven points Countered by the fact. That roy hodgson marin might have been the worst player on the floor. Today i feel like that's actually fair to say sucks rui but like he was he was a step behind the entire game. Defensively really. I mean he finally took that three down the stretch but he passed out like four or five open. Ones reminded me a lot of watching miles. Turner two years ago Yeah i mean but not the takeaway from tobias. Bias was awesome on both ends thought. Well first of all you're going back on your works in our group. Chat you said for concorde. Moss was the worst player on the court. Well i've played the whole game got played out after the instant now is about it. So you know like Was the one where it's like end. Were done that was like for minutes after that. First half with the. I don't know doc will keep doing going forward. He has been a good piece for the rotation most of the season. He had a good second half of the season. So maybe he'll just like maybe just a quick understand that wasn't for khan's game or maybe it is going to be going forward just more maxine mainly maxi taking emphasis minutes then but you have a mirror just is kind of weird because like if you're trying to think of the ideal way someone like koch america play you would think. Maybe it's like to buy harris this bigger bodied forward..

"Wow. I'm shocked and that's a bias has a 30 million thoughts his I have to check that. He's like 34 35. Yeah, he's on a Max. I am shocked cuz he does that like extended his contract offers, but he's about to be afraid at the bowl. Yeah. I know that wage I'm saying, how do we go from his rookie deal to now, he's making twenty million. What contract did he sign? It was like a four year 70 million cuz he got an offer from the Sacramento Kings and then the Bulls matched it off. I restricted. Okay. Yeah my way. No it's a bias is going to get to 44.41 by 20 23 24. It's amazing good for him. He's got a really good Agent to that. Wow. And in what world would advise hair. I listen. I left the marriage advice, right? He's great. He's a perfect. But in what world is the third best player in a good team make forty 1 million dollars a year off. Amazing. Well, technically. II think about yeah, we don't it seems like in my opinion we talked about basketball. It seems like we confuse a lot of times second best player with second option right back in charge too biased when Jimmy Butler made it clear. He wasn't coming back was the only guy that they felt like could be a second option on the roster that they could sign they sign up for a second option money in that case interesting lives of Chris Middleton, right? Exactly a good call. It's a bias is the second option to go offensively on the starting 5, right? Yeah. That's true. Although I would I would argue that a truly good team would not have to buy us as a second option on the offense. You have to be a parent. Yeah 1,000% That's the main problem. Right? Right and and that's not Tobias is off. But you know, he's doing what he can do, which is fine. But yeah, it's an interesting conundrum. So well, listen guys that this is the show we go for an hour every Wednesday and I want you to thank everyone of you guys for being here. Because this is definitely the all-time high for people in here on stage listening. I can't thank you enough. This is awesome. Yeah, no business fire really?

I'll do it, you know, in fact you can all answer the question when I say don't forget sports fans and people operates now, we're not a channel. We're a conversation you in.
"sixers" Discussed on BBALL BREAKDOWN Podcast
"Yeah, that's definitely something that is interesting. But like I said earlier all of that is solved by getting A scoring our regular schooling guard Ben Simmons doesn't have to be in that role and it makes him a better player automatically. Do y'all think that and I don't know what the package would be what we hear in a lot of Kyle Lowry rumors and a lot of teams are fishing around to see what his value is depending on what you would have to give up long as is not correct and the home take all the hometown stuff out and do y'all think that outfit but Kyle Lowry in the Sixers will take the team to another level or do you think it'd be more of a lateral home. Now? My question would be is are we trading are we must not even who are we trading are we keeping to buy has been Angela Angela Colorado? Ultimately that's not possible with the amount of money, Yeah in trade like Mike Scott and like I know it's a couple of Danny Green like Scott and caterpillars. Absolutely. We can do that and get and get contacts off. What these guys we could yeah. Oh, that would be amazing. I would Cry tears of joy to be. So honest with you. I think they can make it further in the playoffs then maybe third round but not I think right now for the second round but not third round win the championship, but the but the problem is the rappers are now in eighth spot place a B16 the last ten so they they suck right of their shift a little bit. I think more is Zach LaVine, honestly if that's even possible. Yeah. Yeah the rappers that are going to blow up their team and you know tank to do that deal, but that the polls are interesting thought he knows they have a new management. So we don't know what their deal is. Do we let me ask you this. Do you really think that losing calorie for the Raptors would cause them to think well, if you if you I mean listen to he's doing this thing. I'll just check his numbers. That's like I thought they were a little bit lower but they're kind of like in you know in line with what he did now, how would they get back again? Cuz it sounded like you know who would live the place. You're listening from the Sixers. I think they said Danny Green any green like in caterpillars, like my tech got Tony Branch be a draft pick or something and draft you like to forget and flip flops on I mean, so you're going to take out like the starter right a guy who's you know, is their leader and you're going to replace him with Danny Green and Mike Scott wage, like, you know, I don't see how that we know what I mean that just seems like they're going to kind of look to get up higher traffic at that point. Yeah, they want to Optics. I think what coach this is. This is why I ask is because they have a question..

"I got a lot of death. So I got to line up for you guys because I was looking at lineups and it will not allowed to be made besides the fact that the starters are you know, net rating is + 14.3 the next most played line-up though. It's just a lot so doc has been playing the starters 279 minutes across 14 games, you know injuries and what not the second most play line. I've only had fifty six minutes, but it's got Dwight Howard Tobias Harris. Korkmaz, Shake Milton and and Matisse thybulle and now one is actually better at + 18.7. So they found a lot of obviously, they're probably beating up on some of these, you know, second units pretty well with Harrison there as the one starter but I'm trying to like wrap my head around that you got Milton doing the running the pick-and-roll Harris spotting up korkmaz starting up Howard doing his defensive anchoring and you know home to rebound whatnot. And then the upside Bal who's doing the defense that's interesting line-up. And by the way, their defensive rating is like eighty six point two, which is like insanely low. I think I think they might have dead. Follow that might be just how a little bit more of a traditional line of that is I mean Shake Milton is kind of big for a guard. But either way like is definitely a more traditional set up with those guys and I think that plays a role with how well they able to play but like you said also bullying the bench and stuff like Yeah, I'm going to look up I want to look up what Bible what the roster looks are. The 5 Mi line-up looks like when fiber replaces green website that in there and see I saw five people in for Danny Green wage against the Kings yesterday. He was last night. He any green cord and Guardians box that they put enmity in the photo. They put Matisse and the guardian France. He showed him down. Yeah. He got home. He got few blocks on you and get defensive stops as well. Hm well here looking it up on. Let's see here. Where is the team shooting? So let's see how long the team is their points for possession is is wow. They're offensive rating is 155 with be put Fireball with the starters and the opponents offensive rating is m110. So that's a plus 45 now again, it's almost no time. It's like nine minutes. So that's nothing but I don't know. We really got to see that line up a lot more. Yeah, I think I think Matisse honestly the one and he's one of those kids to that. She's like he really wants to improve really wants to get better. I can see him becoming a like develop really into a three-page legitimately. Yeah for sure. You know, it's funny cuz I'm trying to you know, Rebrand Simmons if we have three and D guys. He was a I guess it doesn't go well over on Twitter if you call him back in a or maybe it's a & D assists and defense. That's what he does. It's a weird thing right? It's not even like a a term but that's what Simmons does I guess and and Page. Yeah. It's a real conundrum. We have to figure out but here's the thing. Did figure it out, ironically enough or coincidentally enough with Rondo right in a little bit of a different position. But Rondo had the equally issue, you know wage issues and we all might remember I think Kobe would just say I go off of him to no end in the finals and really, you know, try and.

"Yeah, baby love is dead. To use the goal should be getting yeah, I think Danny Green's days of garden quicker guards are over. I think he's going to have to start growing bigger former. It's kind of like what probably claycomb is going to have to do. He's probably have to guard stronger for is like the coil in their types and not the Speedy point guard types. So many times not even sure what difference it makes it is funny. How do we find those games that I'm talking about? Where the guys just let him up against the Lakers shorter like 5,000 is just the one we want to talk about. Danny Green. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah last night. He got burnt by de'aaron Fox like every play. Okay good. You know what? I might be add more to this video now cuz I forgot to talk about that off to look through it and won't be that hard as I been any games but I'm telling you there was like a 50 point game on them or something or something like that or whatever. But anyway the point I think we all get the point. It's sort Bradley Beal scoring 60,000 deal, right? Yes. It was built that drop 60 on us Jaylen Brown feel about forty on them. I remember until I mean I don't know Denny Green's defense at this point is very overrated and I don't know how we even like how does he get into a game and document writing saying, you know go at the guy that schooling a lot like no, I think they might try to package them in a trade later on the season push the deadline honestly, they better it's better. He's only shooting 36% It's not a lie, that's average. What does metiche like 25 Matthias shoots exactly 25% It's not even taken hardly any either right? So I like his form would think he would shoot better if he if he got some more opportunities, honestly, I don't see the reason why we're starting. How old is Danny Green like thirty-five thirty-six something like that. I think no, it's just 33 green pending is Danny Green is 3333. He's the end of his prime supposed to be the end of crime. It feels like six. Yeah. Yep. Does but I don't I just don't see why I mean I kind of understand because they need green does bring their shoe in the aspects of the table, but honestly, I would if I'm Doc Rivers I'm starting to teeth and bring it in and green and Off the Bench. That's really interesting. That's interesting anybody else agree with that issue. It's got lots of for calling minutes remember when they play that to through Zone and he was at the top with Ben and they got all their stops and all those deflections and steals were sent to the bench guess.

"You know, it's a good question. So I really is it will not change because he did not change it did not adjust with those Harold minutes now, he caught him a little bit but they he kept playing Harold even more minutes than he needed to play basically how badly he was playing. So yeah, that's a real question. I guess what they're going to do it by fire and find out but you know listening to a dock and had said about all those things from like some beat writers who come on the show it kind of indicated to me that maybe they really weren't so aware of what the performance of the poor performance of man tries was and I talked to NBA coaches before and a lot of times I get the sense. They don't really look at their line of data enough and that's a scary thing. Now it could also be a generational thing. I would imagine most of the young coaches are like, you know, sucking up all the data. They want all the analytics they can get but there is a certain level maybe like my age or older who I think don't recognize the value of looking at the line of data and in pointing out Jesus, we gotta stop playing these five together. Yeah. I think that's a really good point. But then I don't want naturally put on the line of data is for me cuz I'm I didn't catch every Nuggets Clippers game, but the ones that I did catch just kind of like to me it's kind of obvious. We're okay Montrose. He gets a bigger Defender, you know, because even though Yoakum isn't the all-world defensive player. She still is taller than Mantra. So it's hard for the Mantra and do this things that he usually does and then you're also giving birth Points on it because you can't defend yogesh. You know, the horoscope said about lamelo the beginning of the year. I mean he was saying he want to start him. But if you're turning the ball over in that page since I can't justify give you the minute so that's kind of sort of how I see this too. So I want to see how Doc Rivers and integrates EM is more into the offense because like I said, I don't see him averaging 12 points for a season to me that's hard to believe a 16 guy athletic it can handle the ball only averages twelve points and while twelve points points isn't the end-all-be-all. I think Simmons got have to be more of an offensive threat in order for the team to thrive overall because if you're just focusing on Joelle, even if he's pulling 230, we know where the ball is life that makes you kind of predictable if that for sure what I predicted by the way as the adjustment and we're seeing it now is because of the issues you see with Simmons finishing at the rim and and they're pretty legit like Synergy is ranked wage. Pretty low and he and you can just look it by your eyes. What what they'll do is they'll consciously not help or get into hell position at all on those drives relying on the guy that one on one guy that you know put a hand up and maybe they'll probably have a bad Miss and that way they'll stop him from kicking out and getting this Steph Curry open shots, you know, Steph Curry right now per game is only taking 4.23 is a game in 27 minutes now, he came back from covet and that was now it's been lower because of that is not less energy whatever but I don't know in my mind. He should be you know, Korea should be shooting a career-high page 36 attempts and is not even when you normalize it for that. That's another really big red flag for me. And I I don't have the time for this video to like figure out exactly why that's happening. But I have a picture..

"I mean, they beat the Celtics I think twice but that was without Jayson Tatum which you know is basically, you know, completely shorthanded for the Celtics. So that's the other thing. I think they really benefit from a schedule that the Lakers game was the only one they one which is a thriller and exciting, but that's the only really quality when they have Yeah, I was half house. They're going to doing this user Central Florida of everybody. But that was a question. I wanted to bring up where in the Sixers they're having a lot of wins this season by no stretch of my way from them. But like coach Nick said with the schedule being what it is is it I mean, we can't fathom blue, but see how our expectations are what they are. Do we we kind of apprehensive about the same team is what it is right now because they have long had too many matchups with teams that we predict to be good or going deep into the playoffs. Okay. Wait, so what's what's the question? I was wondering if we just hold off necessarily with the evaluation of critical criticism. But like assessing the Sixers as they are because I believe them is averaging 12 points. I don't think that's something that's going to continue. I'm hoping that will increase over time seeing how you probably get more aggressive throughout the year, but they've played enough teams for me like enough of the Nets or the Lakers or Denver stuff like that for me to say, okay, they're definitely a niche type of team because Joelle he's evident having an MVP season, but I just don't see the Sixers going deep into the playoffs. I think they can be had any playoff series necessarily need right now. Right? Well, I think the two things they have to do is cuz obviously MB could carry a team in the playoffs of a series in any given series but not when it's a much. It's a really good team like in the second round or the fog. Conference Finals where they can double and rotate and like we said earlier like he doesn't necessarily pass out of the double teams that well and if he's from the trying to force shots against double teams against the good teams that might not go so well either and then what have you then you have to buy acai. So right then you have like, you know, Seth Curry trying to create off the dribble or you know, trying to create space the floor. You're right. It's it's a flawed roster. I think that's the issue may be but I love the fact that we want to be, you know, you know slow the role a little bit here and not just bite him on fire because of early-season, you know stretch now you mentioned Denver they did play Denver and they got hammered by them. So that's that was one interesting thing. I kept that caught my eye on looking through this whole schedule. But but listen, they're good. They are good. They've got an MVP candidate. They've got a conundrum in Simmons. But you know, they they have they have something but again in the context of Boston and Brooklyn who else may missing in the East that's good..

"I do on the new Locker Room app. So if you have an iPhone or iPad download locker room, follow me at bballbreakdown and you can call into the show and discuss anything NBA you like my show is every Wednesday at 11 a.m. Pacific time and every Sunday at 9 a.m. Pacific. Hope to see you there. And in the meantime, enjoy the great conversation. and we got somebody wants him on the stage. Let's make it happen right away within the sphere Edwards and this year. How you doing man? You summer? Oh not much. But I also remember I got a plug in my headphones. Otherwise to be here you walk through the speakers of the mic, but what do you want to chop it up about? All right. Well, I'll see you are asking our decisions for real. I'm from Philly and now. From ship to say something like that lay down. All right. Well first things first, I'm a firm believer in Ben Simmons, right and his talent and what he brings to the table outside of his jump shot that he refuses to take. However, Until we get actual scoring or what. So basically what I'm not a firm believer in is to myself. Oh, yeah Tobias Harris is a great player in his own right to be wrong life. He's been productive pretty much ever since he got traded from the Pistons a few years ago. He's been like playing very great basketball. However, I don't think it's a good enough money for the team that we have currently constructed. I think we need a scoring car until we can get a situation where Benson is not the primary ball-handler employee maker. As long as that's the case, I don't think the Sixers will be able to reach where they're trying to go which is holding up the trophy identity. I hear you, you know, there's so much to unpack and I have a no lesson. I don't know 14-minute video to release soon as I'm done with this show that's going to be I mean listen, it starts with all the good stuff, but I slowly start to light them on fire as we go further and further and a lot of things you said are part of it. So, you know, I'm going to try something cuz I've been noticing a lot of other locker room shows will bring more than one person in and kind of gets, you know a really but fun. So we got another speed is only wants to come in here. So let's let's bring him and Tony. Are you there? Yeah, I'm doing here. I can you celebrate so, you know, let's make this up. I mean what if you think about when this year said? I think I think that's a completely correct. Don't have as much Freedom as soon as as other people do I don't even think he's especially basketball today in the concert playoff times. I don't think you can really exist Ben Simmons and bake really existed. I know if we keep changing table. I mean it's it is true. But I do agree with the with the Tobias harvesting e, yeah, I think he when he's playing he feels like he's times it feels as if he's the best player. I feel like I feel like he doesn't really know his rule like one hundred percent. I know he's learning it but I mean if if you're playing with the Nets in the playoff season and and Tobias heard, it takes four straight possessions trying to isolate and shoot mid-range. I don't think that's a good thing. Well, I you know, it's interesting. I think as a third option, he's perfect right? He's scored twenty again, but here's the weird thing about the Sixers overall cuz I I don't even know where to begin. But let's let's start the offense itself now wage..
