home sweep tonight. Sixers better run the Bulls off the court, Miami played a close game on the road last night and the Wiz are the better team, and LeBron is gonna drop 35 but the Lakers are gonna lose a shoot out with Lillard going off for 40+

Expecting another L for Miami missing 3 of their main pieces, I wonít include weighters fat ***. Hopefully the GOAT has a better shooting night.

Sixers will win, Simmons will put up big numbers and for some reason weíll be talking about him not being able to shoot in here after.

I think Lakers win and LeBron goes off.

sixers win by 7... Fultz will look alright and Embiid will turn it over about 4 times but simmons/embiid will do what they do best.

Miami over the wizards tonight strictly because when the wizards shot dont fall they stink and the first game yesterday most teams struggled shooting it seems and it being the wizards first game i feel they will struggle.

Lakers over the blazers by 12... lebron goes for 30/10/10.... Ingram puts up 25 on 50 percent shooting.

I will stop giving wade so much ****. I actually think he will do his thing tonight and the heat pull this off. Dragic will be the one to struggle tonight in my opinion.


Whiteside actually seemed more focused and energetic yesterday so you might be right about him this year.

The problem is his confidence seems to be shot. He's gonna get benched at the start of the 2nd half - basically the coach telling him he's not ready. They need to make more of an emphasis to get him started in games. Today they went with Embiid. Embiid doesn't need that push. Fultz should have been starting and getting the shots in early. Bulls left him wide open in a lot of the shots so let's not pretend that they are contested shots.

benched? it was said coming in before the season started that he would start and reddick would start the 2nd half... that has done wonders for his confidence because the best thing for the team would have been to start reddick and bring fultz off the bench.

I said the same with Ben's jumper and some of your fellow Philly fans were upset. At least you're smart enough to admit it. Ben's jumper is why I don't think Philly will take a huge leap as a team this season. Embiid's already a great overall player but Ben can't shoot FT's, can't score other than getting to the basket, and Fultz needs to be capable of developing a shot soon or else they may have to trade him eventually. But really, if Ben had a jumper, I would take the Sixers over Celtics.

yup that is why we are going with this lesser lineup... if we were trying for just wins reddick would start and fultz would come off the bench... they are forcing this lineup for future benefits and honestly its smart. The only way I will be pissed is if ben/fultz starts refusing to shoot... id rather them go 0-16 then 5-6 at this point if that makes sense.

He shouldíve been on one last year. Only play to hit as many 3s as he did and block as many shots as he did last year except for KD and was a top 3 paint defender in the NBA next to only centers lol!

Heís far better offensively, itís not even close. If Covington isnít catching and shooting a 3 heís screwed. JRich can attack and dunk on you, shoot, and playmake. Covington can shoot sometimes.

Bulls were one of the worst defensive teams last season and they literally played zero defense on Fultz and it was garbage time. I would be even MORE worried if Fultz wasn't taking those shots. Dude, no one is even close to him. Go check the game again for highlights... You'll see Fultz is running and pulling up to every shot because there is so much space between him and his defender. Just wait an hour and I'll post the link.. every single shot made in the 2nd half, defenders were so far away from him.

Wtf? Lmao, I never made any excuses for Ball.. Lakers fans were upset I said Ball was the worst shooter in the league with the amount of attempts he was shooting. Dude, have you been watching the game? Fultz is literally running into his shot every time because his defender is like a mile away from him. Not to mention this is garbage time. These are all practice shots he's making.. There is no defense being played.

:laugh:

now its practice shots... first its he has no confidence and wont shoot... Now that he is shooting its they arent defending... when he starts making them you will just try and find something new to hate on

Okay, come talk to me when he's making shots when the defender isn't a mile away from him. Until then, I'm not impressed he is scoring in garbage minutes against one of the worst defensive teams in the league in which even the Bulls bench are daring him to shoot.

Youíre just trying to sugar coat everything Fultz does. The situation is no different. No one in the East is touching the Celtics so it doesnít matter what Fultz does. Miami obviously wants JRich to be the go to guy and the Sixers want Fultz to be good and itís that simple. Right now both are trying to work their way towards getting where their teams want them to be.

So just taking shots isn't good enough? Now he's got to make them under pressure? Amazing how a player starts doing stuff you said he needs to do, and now it's not good enough.

I see. Standards are so low that scoring against a terrible defensive team that is daring him to shoot is impressive to you. Well, have a go at it. Philly could have been up by much more. They even had Ben and Embiid there still in case Fultz screws up the lead when he misses the shots... You're impressed by his performance tonight? Lol. Damn, standards are low in Philly.

its not that standards are low which is shocking you cant comprehend this put are quick to poke ben on something we actually agree on... Its the results dont matter after everything that happened... his confidence and his ability to force up shots right now is key... I said it all along if him and ben dont keep shooting that will be more worrisome and that is what we are saying. He came out firing every change he got and that is a good thing.

Here's evidence for you. You don't need to take my word for it. Look at the damn videos.

Here's one in which Zach Lavine is moving AWAY from Fultz despite there being over ten feet separating them already.

https://twitter.com/Ballislife/status/1053110604238594048

Here's a video early in the game when Fultz literally passed a wide open shot. None of you ever mentioned it but when he's making shots in garbage time when Philly are up 16+ against the bench of one of the worst defensive teams in the league, I'm supposed to be impressed?
https://twitter.com/Dcorrigan50/status/1053078826450857984

Again, if his confidence isn't low, why the hell is he passing up this shot? Please, tell me what the reasoning is.

Yup. I'm convinced no players are perfect in your eye.

It's called growth.

The fact you brush that off is showing your idiotic view here. Who gives a **** if he wasn't 12-13. He's taking these shots. He made shots in game. Who cares if the defense was no where close. Seeing that ball go in can do good things for confidence. To not pass up that ball and feel it to throw it up there....that's growth.


They even had Ben and Embiid there still in case Fultz screws up the lead when he misses the shots...

And this is the dumbest thing you've said.

Should Fultz not shoot? But if he's not supposed to shoot those how's he supposed to shoot?

You call it a straw man but you are looking for reasons to downput excitement for a fan that has seen a player come a long way. You are what people hate about boards by being a Debbie Downer on another fans excitement to see a player try things he didn't even think of trying last year. ****.

I mean, of course by the end of the season I want to see him shooting better. But that was his career high in attempts and first 3 3's attempted in his career.

2 guys with double doubles, a double triple in the starting lineup and 2 guys with 20+ points. Fultz adding this type of stuff to the mix and builds on it, it gives some interesting flexibility to the lineup.

dumbest thing I have ever heard... people thought the same about the celtics against the cavs etc and about the sixers last year and the celtics if healthy were the best team in the east while the sixers looked better than everyone in the east except the celtics when they werent even suppose to contend... We dont care about wins and need fultz to be what tatum was to the celtics come playoff time... My god i cant believe you follow basketball.

If you think thatís dumb, some kid told me Covington was a top 25 player in the nba and the best player on the 76ers last season.

And I told you and backed everything I said with the numbers for you and JRich was basically Covington last year while being on a much better contract and to start this year itís easiky JRich over Covington. You just havenít watched.

Never disagreed that Jrich wont/cant be better than Cov... my entire argument is that it was utter stupidity that the wolves valued him so high. If I am trading a guy like butler I am doing it for saric/Cov/First or Multiple firsts from the heat along with Jrich etc etc etc.

The two glaring problems everyone had with the Lakers coming into the season have come to fruition. They can't play defense and they can't shoot 3s.

They're an athletic team that's going to put up points, and LeBron should be good enough to get them to a 6th seed.

Post game- Shaking hands and smiling with the other team... Kobe would rather cut off his nuts after a loss then do that


KCP- He was signed because he is lebrons boy and bringing in lebron meant the lakers had to sign kcp... KCP starting over hart is just wrong.


Ball- He just doesnt fit next to lebron and the lakers might trade him for nothing.


Now again its just 1 game but looking at reddit the amount of hate for lebron from lakers fans is hilarious. I gotta give them credit... they are sticking to their guns wanting the lakers to win but still not liking lebron

Lakers fans can cry. None of this has to do with hating Lebron either. KCP starting is not a reason to hate Lebron. Ball not performing has nothing to do with Lebron. Its opening night. Kobe has plenty of hugs in the regular season after games.

They should hate that they donít play defense. They play with pace but they remind me of the run and gun Nuggets. They arenít a good team if they play defense like that.

He ainít fam, LeBrons the smartest player ever. Imagine if he could just sit back like Rondo and pick teams apart with his passing because they didnít need his scoring.

Rondo and Rubio are sick though, the dimes they drop are more pure because they aren't a threat to score the ball to set up the defense. Bron sets up his pass with his ability to get buckets.

Lebron's iq is elite, but it's hard to tell who has the best iq ever.

Duncan and Marc Gasol are smart on defense. Jokic is smart on offense. Bird and Magic had some crazy iqs. Jordan was elite iq player also. Dennis Rodman was a genius in ways. Steph Curry is smarter then people give him credit for IMO. Chauncey Billups. Draymond has elite iq too.

I think Cp3 is just as smart or better vs. LeBron. For a PG playing defense as good as him with a severe Knee injury and at his age. He can't score as easily as Bron, but I think Cp has the higher IQ. LeBron just has the better total package offensively with Scoring, passing and IQ. Stockton had a sick IQ too.

:facepalm: i hate posts like these, it brings down the entire discussion and thread, ever since this post the pages have been crap, you can be better than this, you take it to far when no one said anything remotely like this

Then the first post is ďFultz is starting to get goingĒ and the response is ďhe took one shot thatís all it takes to get excitedĒ; yes it deserves a response like that.

Fultz made a good defensive play, set a good pick, then came hard off of one. That was one of the more aggressive set of actions from him in the 2018 season. Guys donít always need to hit shots to get into it, and I was excited to see Fultz doing that, hustling after the loose balls.

The continual put down over being excited to see a guy get engaged is absurd. Sometimes MTM is right, and he is on the amount that people obsess over points that we canít look at other things as exciting.

So yes, when a fans excitement over seeing a guy do actions he hasnít, Iím going to respond with trivialized responses about the only things that matter to them.

Like the bemoaning that I should be excited about Fultz letting it fly in the 4th. So what. This is a guy who hasnít felt right mentally and physically to do that in a game since 2017 summer league. **** yes Iím going to get excited over that.

And before you call hypocrite over not saying the same for Simmons; Kelle doesnít have the ability to get to the rim at will isnít there for Kelle he needs his shot to be effective. And you should be with me in understanding and realizing even with missing itís a good thing.

(FWIW - I donít fully disagree with your Simmons point, but for him to just come out firing game 1 isnít necessary. Unlike Kelle, Ben didnít have a base of doing this before for his ďshooting growth curveĒ is different.)

flash got frustrated and started to go tip toe a line himself, but at first he was asking real questions

I also never said Simmons should just fire, thats something you misunderstood and twisted. I said he should shoot when the defense sags because its a higher percentage play and its better to work on it now and gain confidence with it before the playoffs when the real games matter, but you took that as, he should just jack it every time, you have a tendency of taking a slight and blowing it up to the sarcastic post i quoted above

Warriors - KD is a punk, Curry can be overrated, all Klay can do is shoot

Jazz - Mitchell shoots to much and is inefficient

OKC - Russ/PG13

Lakers - no 3pt shooting

Philly - Simmons/Fultz shooting

Rockets - Melo and the D lost by Ariza/MBah Moute

Heat - Josh Richardson overrated, Heat players arent really that good

Toronto - their playoff woes pre Kawhi

Blazers have a 16-0 record in opening night the past sixteen seasons. Might just be a weird trend but from what I saw, Lakers need shooting badly. LeBron seems to be able to get the shots he needs but is too focused on getting everyone else involved. I think a trade happens this season for sure but until then, Lakers need to keep it in striking distance of making the playoffs. Was painful watching wide open threes get bricked shot after shot. McGee is perfect for this system. I'm not sure what Ball's role is any longer. Overall, you can't expect to get that many paint points every game so either Lakers have to fix their shooting or they will need to get some better defensive players on the team.

I dunno if this will be considered a hot take or not: I think Luke Walton is gonna be exposed as a HC this season. I didnít really see a set offense in that game. Time will tell, but despite having Bron, I think Walton is going to struggle putting together an offense without a bunch of floor spacers.
