    Obviously lying, there was no setback. Probably been healthy for months now.

    the trade away of Illy yesterday was the confirmation of tanking for the year. They got what they needed, an identification that they have a star if healthy, another rookie who will be good, and they have upwards of 2 picks to finish themselves off in the rebuild for the next 10 years.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    CT scan on Ben Simmons' foot reportedly showed a fracture
    Wasn't there a scan about a month ago which revealed no setbacks?

    Did he refracture himself while raising a cat on instagram or what?

    Nerlens Noel missed a full season, Embiid missed two seasons, and now Ben Simmons missed a full season.

    Probably malarky. They saw la give away theyre "best chance at winning games" and saw the top 3 chances get higher, so they decided to get the tank out of the shed.

    Wouldnt be surprised if we dont see much of embiid the rest of this year either.

    Is ANYBODY surprised?

    The only thing the Sixers have done this year that surprised me is NOT trade Okafor.

    I'm sorry but the Sixers are still trash.

    Out of this whole tanking ordeal they end up with:

    1 Potential Star (Embiid), 1 starter (Saric) and an unknown in Simmons.

    Okafor is trash, Noel was just shipped out for a bag of balls and they still don't have a starting caliber guard on the roster. Look, I understand the tanking philosophy, I really do. But I seriously question if they will ever be a contender with the pieces they plan on building around. Their only hope is hitting the F/A lottery.

    If the Sixers get a top 4 pick this year they will have a guard with very high potential. It's painful to watch, but they really could be something special in 3 more years ... if the players develop and they can keep them around.

    Wolves are trying like hell to make the playoffs.
