Utah is a HOT team right now and looking unstoppable. Just got done putting a beatdown on the best team in the East - should blow the Cavs out by at least 30.

Also, I really like Doug McDermott. He is a better defender then people think. He is a good shooter (i thought he was a better one out of college) and is great without the ball. I don't think I've seen him score one basket after taking more then 2 dribbles this season.

Cause we have the ISO-kings on this team. They all think this is some streetball nonsense. Melo just dribbles and tries to post up while everyone watches. Westbrook just drives to the basket and doesn't ever even look to make passes anymore. Amazing how this coach hasn't been fired yet. There's no point in pushing the pace when our team has no clue how to shoot or score. We have terrible complimentary pieces. I would rather have Courtney Lee+Doug than Melo at this point. I mean, Roberson is out for us but he can't shoot anyways.

Sixers are 1-5 past six games.. I am jumping off the bandwagon. Embiid played 50 minutes last night. We won't be seeing him till next month. He might not even be able to play the ASG... watch him get voted and then have to be replaced.

Vee-Rex
12-16-2017, 10:46 PM
Glad to get the win.

I might be whining but I felt like:

Refs were lightweight hosing us. So many missed calls in the paint especially in the first half.

They were shooting lights out from the arc.

We were missing tons of easy baskets. Wade missed a lot he normally makes.

Fortunately they had a lot of turnovers and we were able to stay ahead that way.

Mitchell looks damn good. He's gonna be an all-star in this league.

He's just not going to hold up. You can already tell, he's just too big and bulky to play his style of game and remain healthy.

Mitchell looks like a mix between Wade and Lillard to me. Shoots like Lillard, attacks the basket like Wade. That spin move going towards the basket followed by the 2 handed dunk of 2 feet was a mirror image of Wade.

I'm surprised he has held up this long so far but again, injuries are random at times. Any sudden movement, especially for a player his size/frame, can cause him to miss the entire season again. He's already missed nearly 20% of games played. Considering he's such a huge piece for the Sixers, I'm not sure that's what you want if you're looking to stay ahead in the seedings.

I turned it off and am watching the UFC fight instead. It's not even fun anymore. I support them but it's impossible to watch them without feeling sick to your stomach. I'm already at a point where this won't work. I'm a bit happy we got rid of long-term contracts and can rebuild for the future. It's a total mess right now. Donovan should be fired and we need a coach who doesn't act like a pansy.

None at all. PG looks unhappy as hell. Melo looks like he wishes he had just held out longer and stayed with the Knicks. Russ doesn't care at all as long as he gets triple doubles. It's sad. Real sad. We should be spanking some of these teams but because these guys don't know how to play with each other, we're total losers.

Yeah, if Embiid was like 6'10 and weighed 30 less pounds, it wouldn't be so hard for him.

Honestly he looks like 7'4 out there he's too big.

Didn't miss much, more of the common theme lately. Play tight and run away with it at the end. Weird game from LeBron but it was a quick turnaround from last game. Didn't attack near as much as usual but I'll blame that on being tired from last game. TT looks pretty good coming back and a lot of the new guys already seem to have the chemistry down with him. Got the good new IT plans to return the first week of January as well.
