    But the pay is the only real knock on him as long as you know that he's going to this take a dip in the playoffs. His age fits Embiid's timeline, he seems to be a good teammate, doesn't complain,...

    I don't disagree. Harris is a solid 3rd option. He's kind of overpaid, but a solid fit with Embiid and that's what really matters.

    Honestly I hate the idea of any trade of Simmons to a contender. I can just picture this entitled man-child being carried by Durant and Harden and eventually hearing his smug responses in the...

    Not from his perspective.

    Yes, as I stated originally, he chose Brooklyn to play with the teammates he wanted. But now he's being given an ultimatum to basically decide between playing against...

    Because it would be counterproductive to deciding his own fate (the 1st time he's had that). He was drafted to Cleveland (didn't choose), then was traded to Boston (not on his preferred destination...

    Agree with all except the "role player" title. But I think the problem is Philly has two of those, and they're both making more than Embiid.

    It's not that CJ or Fox move the needle more than Simmons, it's that as a GM, I absolutely can't have that blow up in my face. Too risky.

    To make an analogy, to trade for Butler, Miami gave up...

    You make solid points for sure, but it all works under the assumption that Simmons CAN do better and was in the wrong situation/roster and completely disregards the idea that Simmons mentally CANNOT...

    Sticky: I think this is too far in the other direction...

    I think this is too far in the other direction and now adequate blame is not being given to a guy making an average salary of $41M.

    If the opponent puts Terrance Mann on you or other undersized...

    I don't see a really high value as another GM. This problem with Simmons is so multi-layered. Maybe a couple years ago he could play the Jason Kidd's Nets role and be the best player on a contending...

    You have to be the most desperate of desperate teams to inherit this mess.

    Simmons has been completely unprofessional, seemingly has mental issues along with entitlement. He's making the max as...

    I think it's easier to reverse course and save face on the trade front than it is the vaccine front. But I can always be wrong.
  14. I think him and Durant can work past it as long...

    I think him and Durant can work past it as long as he knows it's coming from him. If he comes to him and says "I want the Nets to work out a trade for me, not because of anything the Nets are doing,...

    I think he's committed to not taking the vaccine more than he is playing for the Nets, but not more than he is to making money. Hope that made sense.

    The 76ers fans will be unforgiving though regardless of how "professional" the team and Simmons try to handle it.

    I'm sure he's gotta know that and after 4 years of this, I'd guess that's playing...

  19. I legit don't understand Conservative + Anti-mandate

    Can someone please break it down in the "for dummies" view? This is honestly not an attack. But seeing the Texas Governor about-face on his views on private business mandates confuses me.

    So the government doesn't already control everything?

    Nobody actually owns anything. Nobody has any rights that the government doesn't say they can't have. Don't see the motive.

    Who would still want this guy if he does that. This is not a Kawhi/Toronto one year flier in a contract year where he has motivation to prove himself, this bum Simmons has 4 years left.
