    Quite an interesting matchup. 2 previously star-studded teams stripped down to one real all star between them.

    Warriors have depth and balance on their side. Buddy is a legit scorer and he's surrounded by quality defenders in Rubio, Brook, Harkless, Tristan and Ariza to an extent.

    X Factor is clearly John Wall. I'm going to give Philly the benefit of the doubt and assume for playoffs they don't start bridges and use a wall/beverly backcourt. Philly, for as bad as their spacing looks, is a quality defensive team, even with an out of position Randle on defense.

    I think the PnR of Wall and Embiid has deadly potential. Wall might not be a sniper but he's not Simmons. Not sure what to expect from Zion, but Philly simply has too many high-powered guys whereas the Warriors are safe but predictable. Sixers in 5/6

    Also didnt Wiggins go to GSW from PHI? where is he?

    Considering how we treated Durant in this game, we have to treat Wall the same way. Wall has been ruled out for the season I believe, so that factors into my decision. Still, give me Philly. Embiid+Randle will be enough.

    Wall is never going to be the same player, let alone healthy enough to play whatsoever this season.

    He's a complete non factor

    No doubt but the 6ers are still a much better side even if poorly constructed.

    Agreed that its definitely a weird constructed roster for PHI, but still the superior talent. Philly in 5, maybe 6.

    A write up at this point is useless because you canít change your vote but itís safe to argue that if Embiid is gonna average 50 than Hield will average atleast the same.

    Randle as his second best player is a nice second option but you could also argue he is gonna be playing out of position when he should be used primarily as a Center.

    Beverly yeah heís a dog defensively but thatís about all he is gonna bring to the table.

    Mikal Bridges and Zion ? 2 huge questions marks. If this was a team where we voted 5 yrs in the future he could potentially have one hell of a team here.


    My flexibility and depth paired with Rubio, Hield, Lopez. Are far superior to what Philly is bringing to the table. Embiid averages 50 a game sure okay. So Philly scores what maybe 85-90 points a game. Donít see that winning a 7 games series

    How is Buddy gonna average 50 when his career high is 37?

    The 76ers can't shoot, but their front court would absolutely dominate. Their defense would also be much better.

    6ers arenít putting Bev on Rubio. Buddy will get punked by Bev. Randal is fine at PF. Jonas as a back up C would crush it against second units. Their issue is Zion isnít a SF and Bridges at SG. They should have moved Jonas for wing depth but I get why they wanted cover for Embiid with his injury history. Even with that their still much much better. Idk what was done to the warriors roster but itís horrible. I know Klay/KD were FA but Green and Curry should have gotten so much more.
