    Anytime, big guy....
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    Yeah he'll definitely get his shot blocked a fair bit, but his post game is so advanced for a 19 year old, and he draws so much contact, I have no doubts he'll be ok. I want to see him...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    Okafor looked like he petered out towards the end of the game. Lost some lift off his shot for sure. Finished with 18 pts and 6 boards but was definitely worse in the fourth quarter. Got blocked a few times...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    I know it's summer league but Okafor just dominated the entire Knicks front line in the first quarter of this game. Can't recall this type of offensive post presence on the Sixers for a loooong time. Sharone Wright notwithstanding :)...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    Man, you're really sticking with the Jahlil Okafor is a "slow-footed Al Jefferson" aren't you? Damn I just don't see it. I feel like at WORST, Okafor is Al Jefferson. At 19, he's already bigger (taller and heavier), has a...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    I think motor = cardio for Okafor in this case. 260+ lbs is a lot to haul at altitude in your first game in months. He was slow to get back defensively a few times after thinking he got hacked...

    Don't know anything about Holmes but was def impressed with him tonight. Didn't know he had that range. I watched McConnell a bit at AZ and thought he was very good tonight running the team. Gotta hit open threes if...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    Zach Lowe says he's hearing the deal could include a Sacto draft pick as well. Wonder who the overseas assets are?...
  • Commented on A Fleeting Moment of Importance
    Per Woj, Sixers trading "overseas assets" for Stauskas, Carl Landry and Jason Thompson. Sixers wanted Stauskas, agreed to take on contracts of Thompson and Landry...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    If I had to speculate, I'd guess that because Embiid just hit the 1-year mark since the injury first occurred, the doctors had a certain benchmark set as to how far along they'd like the healing to be after a...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    Now this is a great question. I think most people would agree that a healthy Embiid is a better prospect than a healthy Towns but until we get a couple of injury-free years out of Embiid in Philly it'll be...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    This is perfect...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    FWIW, D'Angelo Russell jumped 39.5" in the vertical jump test today. Really good, especially for someone with questions about his "explosiveness."...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    Caitlyn is an explosive, versatile athlete....
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    Kristaps article from Grantland. He's definitely an intriguing prospect. http://grantland.com/the-triangle/who-is-kristaps-porzingis/...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    I don't know why it makes me so happy to picture Dollar Bill feverishly searching the internets for Drake songs....
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    It's similar to the NFL in the way that the running game has fallen out of favor a bit. Yet, if you can find an exceptional running back and build a strong O-line you can still have great success. Look...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    I would love Winslow but I'm definitely intrigued by Saric. A legit 6'10" forward with great passing skills plus supreme grit/energy sounds pretty good, especially next to Embiid....
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    From Chad Ford's chat re: Dario Saric Question from James (NYC) Where would Dario Saric rate in this draft if he came out this year instead? Chad Ford (1:17 PM) Probably Top 10. But maybe higher based on the NBA's...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    Man, not me. I think McDermott is going to have a significantly more difficult time getting his shot off against NBA small forwards than Russell will have against NBA shooting guards and PG's. Russell had a 6'9.75" wingspan at the...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    DBill, You don't seriously like Doug McDermott as a prospect more than the D'Angelo Russell do you? Are you Bob Ford?...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    The only "chronically injured malingerer" even remotely associated with this Sixers team was Bynum. Which "chronically injured malingerers" were you referring to?...
  • Commented on A Whole Lotto Nothing
    I didn't follow Utah at all this year so can anyone who did talk to me about Exum's shooting? Can he do it? It feels like in today's NBA you really need a PG who can make shots, and not...
  • Commented on Might Be A Starter
    Yeah count me out on this one. Noel plus two first round picks for Beal and Stauskas? Doesn't feel like nearly enough of a return. Like tk76 said, without knowing exactly what you have yet in Embiid, Noel is, if...
  • Commented on Might Be A Starter
    You (and EVERYONE ELSE) knew that heading into this season, wins were not necessarily the main goal of this season. The main goals were always going to be monitoring Noel's development and his health. Both of which were met and...
  • Commented on Might Be A Starter
    First off it hasn't been 3 years, this is only the second year of Hinkie's stewardship. He was hired in May of 2013 and traded Jrue on draft night. Regarding Noel losing effectiveness as a PF, it's virtually impossible to...
  • Commented on Might Be A Starter
    Haha this is like James Inhofe holding a snowball while he's addressing congress and saying, "so much for global warming, am I right???" There's a difference between climate and weather, and like The Six said, you can't just cherry pick...
  • Commented on Might Be A Starter
    Oh I love Danny Green's game, dgmw. You said it perfectly that he's the type of player that every team could use. That being said, I think of Max players as superstars and I don't see Danny Green as that....
  • Commented on Might Be A Starter
    Oh man I do NOT think Danny Green or Aaron Afflalo are max players. I'd hope Hinkie would agree with me. I don't really see there being any massive free-agent moves the Sixers make this summer. I see that happening...
  • Commented on Might Be A Starter
    He does a pretty thorough exam of Noel. Worthwhile read. http://www.cbssports.com/nba/eye-on-basketball/25129487/roy-breakdown-nerlens-noel-has-taken-big-steps-forward...
