  • Commented on Seizing Opportunity
    Haha this is funny: @DarrenWolfson: Non-#Twolves FO exec. on Hinkie: "Always asks for way too much." He's doing his job. But also why getting Thad isn't easy. MN still trying....
  • Commented on Summer League & Free Agents
    It's nice to read that Hinkie spends so much time on the road scouting players. A solid combo of scouting and analytics is the way to go. How cynical are you that you read an article that doesn't muck-rake and...
  • Commented on Summer League & Free Agents
    First off, I didn't mean "you" specifically when I said what I said. Secondly, you can absolutely be in great offseason shape and still get winded when the actual games start. It's a totally different animal. I'm not arguing that...
  • Commented on Summer League & Free Agents
    Practicing and riding an exercise bike have zero to do with getting you in game shape. Anyone who's played a sport on any sort of competitive level will tell you that. Playing in an actual game is so different with...
  • Commented on Summer League & Free Agents
    "I give him credit for FT work and summer % improvement. Good sign. Organization tiptoe - why?" It's July. If they're being overly cautious with him in December I'll be worried, but not now. He's on the doorstep of his...
  • Commented on Summer League & Free Agents
    So you really think Noel won't improve his stamina btwn now and the regular season? I find that hard to believe. Prior to this summer league, the guy hadn't played in an actual, real competitive game since his Kentucky days....
  • Commented on Summer League & Free Agents
    Noel seems to have that innate hustle that some guys have and some don't. AI had it too. I think it's a GREAT thing. Now it's the coaches job to throttle him back when it's appropriate. Easier to hold someone...
  • Commented on Summer League & Free Agents
    Isn't the point of summer league to get a look at middling prospects and see how they play in a (relatively) competitive setting? Sure winning is icing on the cake but it's clearly not the true goal of summer league....
  • Commented on Summer League & Free Agents
    Nah, my guess is they're planning on him not playing many back-to-back's during the summer. Probably ramp him up for preseason and go full speed when it counts. IMO, Noel's wind looked better last night than it has all summer....
  • Commented on Summer League & Free Agents
    It was way worse than that re: Vitale. He was crushing the Sixers for drafting Iguodala over Luke Jackson! I still remember Jay Bilas ripping Vitale during that draft because Vitale kept pushing all of the 4-year guys over the...
  • Commented on Summer League & Free Agents
    Clyde and Joel Myers were an abomination last night....
  • Commented on Summer League & Free Agents
    Do the Sixers have the rights to Kilpatrick? I'm not sure they do. He might just be a summer league invite, but be able to sign with any team in the league....
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Guys, I think I figured out who Dollar Bill is in real life. https://twitter.com/bobcooney76/status/487776331434713089...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Yeah lots of speculation of turning Wiggins/Bennett into Kevin Love. Next few days should be fun. Bosh to Houston? Melo to NY? What about Chicago? Do they try to get local boy D.Wade back home?...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Obviously his Max isn't what Lebron or Melo's is. Charlotte offered him a 4 year $63M deal! You don't honestly think Gordon Hayward is worth $15.75M per year do you???...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Gordon Hayward a Max Player??? I know, I know, no one uses PPG, RPG, or FG% anymore. But in what world is a career 12 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 43% FG% guy a Max Player??? His career PER is 15 if...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    It's hard not to be excited about Noel. A super athletic big who runs the floor? I'm in. One thing I remember about his freshman season at Kentucky was his hustle. As the #1 high school player coming out of...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Sixers PR guy tweeted that KJ McDaniels is a late addition to Sixers Summer League team in Orlando. Good to hear!...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Patience is my whole point with this. Fans complaining about the GM and his process at this stage is like nagging the architect/builder of your house during the entire construction phase. At some point you need to trust that he...
  • Commented on A Bill of Goods
    Totally agree. Leaving Hinkie completely out of the equation, the idea of a total tear-down and rebuild is absolutely the way I'd want this team to proceed. I don't understand the desire to add middling pieces to a team not...
  • Commented on Two More Years...Two More Years...
    Haha, did I see somewhere that Aaron Craft is playing for one of the Sixers Summer League teams? SO MUCH HUSTLE...
  • Commented on Two More Years...Two More Years...
    Haha I only copied the Sixers part. The rest of the article is like 3 times longer!...
  • Commented on Two More Years...Two More Years...
    More from the Zach Lowe piece: A team you’d be advised to avoid watching next season: the Philadelphia 76ers, who turned two first-round picks into an injured big man and a delightfully feisty Croatian who won’t be in the NBA...
  • Commented on Two More Years...Two More Years...
    I don't get the handwringing of the "we're still gonna stink next year" crowd. Of course we are! We were always gonna stink next year, regardless of who was drafted last night. The team won't be significantly improved until these...

  • Commented on Draft Day 2014
    I know it's been said but we can't forget that adding a now-healthy Noel to the team next season is like an additional lottery pick....
  • Commented on 2014 Please Avoid List
    Not sure who originally "put out" the report, but the tweet is from one of the Liberty Baller guys. One league source says it looks obvious Orlando wants No. 1 to take Parker and flip him to Bucks for Exum....
  • Commented on 2014 Please Avoid List
    There's a report out there saying that Orlando could trade up for #1 and take Parker; flip him to Milwaukee for Exum, thereby leaving Wiggins for the Sixers at #3. That would be ideal. Keep #10 and grab a shooter...
  • Commented on 2014 Please Avoid List
    Any chance we can get a new "game day" thread? Thanks....
