39/17 with 2 blocks on 10-18 shooting... foul troubl in the 3rd caused him to barely play the 3rd or he would have put up 50... took him out of his groove. Easily the early season MVP.

he had 2 negatives that he needed to work on... his turnovers and his lack of domination inside... he has excelled this year at both and basically tries to live in the post a ton.... he now has no weaknesses. We should have traded him for 2 2nds.

fun note... the story of this game is when the pistons cut it to 9 after the sixers being up 22 and embiid and ben forced to the bench with 4 fouls each... fultz came in and played insane defense and fultz and the bench took it back to a 15 point lead but yo he is trash... his defense has flat out improved so much in such a short span and his ball movement is sick... easily 5 assists left on the floor from wide open shots missed on dishes by him.

I didnít watch but I doubt the story of the game or the reason the Sixers went on a run was your starting shooting guard that had 4 points and 3 assist on 1 of 6.

except defense actually matters in this sport and his defense the last 3 games has been ridiculously good and seeing as how they were a plus with him on the floor out of everyone that says a ton.... This is why he starts over reddick because of this upside... Yes reddick shoots better but fultz is better everywhere else and his growth continues to shine... Nobody outside of embiid/shamwow really stuck out in the box score but fultz/ben/cov/embiid defense is disgusting. This is like game 20 for fultz and he is showing drastic improvement who would have thought a 20 year old could improve if given the chance to play????

Donít short sell him. His performance was more then the story of the game. We havenít seen the other games but it will be at least the night. Btw both sides of the ball matter. If you are atrocious on either you kind of suck and I doubt he is better then JJ at much

You know what I find amazing...

Show where Iím saying Frank is great. Iím happy he has been more aggressive since being moved to the point. Being indecisive has been a real issue for him. He probably is better then Fultz right now and there is no way he should be starting on a team with legit aspirations. Also letís not hold showing up against Frank. Fultz opportunities have been limited bc of Fultz

he hasnt at all be better then fultz... the only thing frank has on fultz is 3point shooting but he is shooting 36 percent from the field. He turns the ball over more with 6 more minutes on the court and scores/rebounds/assists less with 6 more minutes on the court. I think frank will be good but yes you like what frank is doing but have this insane bias against fultz because the sixers tanked lulz.

Fultz #1 option isnít Tim Hardaway. Do you think might wind up turning the over ball more and lose assists if he is wasnít surrounded by creators and shot makers. Fultz does have tighter handle but no one defends him outside the paint so really unless he dribbles it off his foot or get himself in trouble he probably isnít turning it over. Frank also defends one through 4 and 1 through 3 an a very high level. Knicks fans are very split on Frank. he can look like two different players. Im hoping the better one steps forward still I donít know if the guy will ever be a legit starter and he certainly hasnít performed like one so far. Heís a kid i hope gets better but Iím willing to admit he isnít there. He also playing in front of Trey Burke and Emmanuel Mudiay

how am I being a homer? What have I said that screams homer? I have explained my logic for each thing I have said on why id take fultz over tatum and why we are starting fultz... all of what I said has weight... I dont think fultz is great by any means... No player that shoots under 40 percent normally is but its like 20 games and he has fixed his shooting stroke yet everyone writes him off or calls him a bust when he has shown flashes of brilliance on both ends. This is called looking at the entire situation and the fact that a person is 20 and how nba ready they were when entering the league.

Today you said: The guy who had 4 points and 3 assist on 1 of 6 was the story of the game on a day where Joel had 30 in the first half. Btw itís more then 20 games. I know he plays for a team that take Twitter trolling seriously (see your last GM) but that doesnít give him a pass

well ben and embiid were forced on the bench with the pistons cutting the lead down to 9 before fultz came in and helped hold it down as the primary ball handler. Embiid was other worldly but the game was its most pivotal when our broken/busted/horrid player came in and held the fort down. I said the story not the best player.

Fultz couldn't shoot last year and can't shoot this year. No improvement at all. PER 36, his stats were better last season and his shooting was also better even though it was such a small sample size. No evidence at all Fultz has improved. Funny I said he has no confidence in his shot and you guys think it's not true. He isn't even trying to take any.

The Nuggets are for real.

They're playing great defense, they have a strong bench and this is the 2nd game in a row where Jokic was subpar and they still dominated. Gary Harris should get All-star consideration this season.

I had them as the 4th seed this year in the West. I think they can finish as high as 2nd depending on how Houston can bounce back.

I never said Embiid wouldn't be healthy. I said his health is very questionable and at that point, it was. When the hell did I say he should be traded for 2 2nds?

Ingram doesn't fit the Lakers. He's an ISO player who can't hit threes. Lakers don't need anyone other than LeBron to ISO. Just a weird fit for him. I was wrong about Ingram but the Lakers, if smart, should look to pump and trade Ingram. If Pelicans do terrible enough, maybe AD is available for a trade. Funny enough, AD basically said he has to play perfect for the Pelicans to win every time. Sounds like he's upset. Since he was injured, they're 0-5. He's basically forcing himself to play so they can compete. Never thought I would say this but imagine Javale and AD on the frontcourt lol. They'd be blocking every shot and finishing every lob.

Just going to give you guys a heads up on Kawhi:

The Raptors have been holding him from playing one game of the back to backs so far this season, and this will likely continue (as both are more focused on the postseason games). They've also sat him on some random games to accumulate rest (E.g vs the Bucks so he could get 5 days rest and slowly get back into it).

Raptors have a back to back tomorrow and Monday vs the Lakers/Jazz. Kawhi had to leave early (precautionary) due to a jammed foot vs Phoenix, so I would think there's a good chance that they sit him tonight. So be careful picking Toronto in the future on back to backs if they're playing a good opponent.
