    Oh for sure. I'm not implying Noel is anything like Hakeem (or Scot Pollard for that matter). I thought the fact that he's the youngest player ever to hit these numbers was the interesting part. Btw, I didn't do any...

    It's a list chock-full of Hall of Famers or potential Hall of Famers and you cherry-pick the two "poor" names from the list. Kudos. Ok, I'll play too! Hakeem Olajuwon! David Robinson! Patrick Ewing! Woo hoo! Nerlens is headed for...

  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Be as snarky as you want, but if you can't see the improvement in Noel's game as this season has progressed, along with his defensive impact, you're just not trying at all....

    @preston76: Nerlens Noel becomes youngest player to record at least 13 rbs, 5 blocks, 4 steals in a game (via @bball_ref) http://t.co/dzFt5zKOCm...

    Would be something to consider to be sure (which is what I'm assuming Hinkie was doing at the deadline), but I don't know if I'd trade Embiid for either of those three players. Clearly health is the #1 issue at...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    I have been a fan of most of what the Sixers have done over the past year and a half. That said, if they traded Embiid I would certainly be disheartened. I don't think for a minute that they shopped...

    Noel nominated for Rookie of the Month award: http://www.nba.com/sixers/video/channels/award_nominees/2015/03/02/20150301-kia-nominee-noel.nba/...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    I don't have any real salary-cap knowledge (or any other knowledge for that matter, haha) but didn't they sign McGee just so they could get to the salary floor this season? He certainly doesn't seem like the type to play...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    HAHAHA it's clear you don't like the way Hinkie's running this team but if you're using an "article" by ANGELO CATALDI to further your cause then we're probably done here....
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Isn't this team a season and a half into the rebuild?...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    So Jrue, an unfortunately oft-injured PG, (which is a position, according to you, that is most easily replaceable in the NBA) is more valuable now and forever than Noel and Saric? Ok....
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Thing is, I didn't cite yesterday's game. I never even mentioned Noel. Brian randomly brought up him only having 3 rebounds in response to my post about Canaan. Vuc was great the other night....
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    By the way, you've complained about having a PG who couldn't shoot for years. The team then trades for a PG who is actually a good shooter, and now you complain about his fouls, turnovers and assists in his first...

    Isaiah Canaan made four 3's tonight in his Sixers debut. MCW made four 3's in a game ONCE in his Sixers career....

    Uggh...Ignore the above post, nothing worked right. If you want to see some video of Embiid working out, go to the Sixers twitter feed from last night. https://twitter.com/Sixers Like I said, he looks good and very fit. Great to see...

    Is trading MCW really a "reset" though?...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Yeah you can't have it both ways. If you hated this Sixers team and one of the reasons was because MCW was terribly inefficient and couldn't shoot, then you can't hate the fact that they traded him away for a...

    Brian should be THRILLED!!! No more MCW and no more KJ. He hated both of them. Back on board, WOOHOO!!! Fwiw, I love the Javale+1st rounder trade. I'm totally good withe the MCW trade and my thinking on the KJ...

    Haha yeah I knew the Santa isn't real thing was coming as soon as I sent that. You could totally be right, but why ruin the ride? Actually, like anomie said, it all hinges on Embiid. If he turns out...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Oh I know you hate counting stats, but I figured the defensive box score +/- might pique your interest: • Perhaps most impressively, Nerlens Noel ranks fifth in the league in defensive box +/-, a measure of a players' effect...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    You are right about Embiid being THE major factor in all of this. If his health is right (a major if) and he's everything that people think he can be, then this plan will work. Does it work because of...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    LOL! I HAVE to sound like a polite Canadian around here because of the incredible inability of some to find ANYTHING positive about the direction of this Sixers team. I am normally an optimistic sort, but it does feel like...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Jeezus man you're a relentless downer. Noel is putting up some potentially historic defensive numbers this season. If you see Stromile Swift as his ceiling, more power to you. "Defense (The Nerlens Noel Edition) • Nerlens Noel currently ranks 12th...

    As I said (I'm not The Six, btw) this is the definition of nit-picky. What does "being a good eye-tester" even mean? To me it means watching players play and forming opinions based on that. Maybe to you it means...
  • Commented on He'd Be a Starter If...
    Me thinks you're picking nits. Doesn't the endorsement of Hinkie "watching more basketball than anyone I know" point to the "eye-test?" My understanding (FWIW) is that people bash analytics guys as not actually, ya know, watching basketball. That to me...
