    Embiid looks out of shape. He needs to lose some weight before he gets hurt again

    If we win any more than 15 games this yr, it would be a disappointment.

    Trade any and all vets. The last thing I want is a 30 win season.

    How do you sell Chauncey on that or do you simply let Chauncey go and get a new coach?

    Why do you need to sell him on this? He's a lame duck coach in his last yr.

    Is he? I have a hard time thinking Chauncey is done here at this point? Maybe you are correct?

    Anyone else slightly concerned Sharpe isn’t the superstar we hoped since he didn’t make the Canadian Olympic roster? Love the kid I see superstar potential but I also have my concerns

    Certainly have concerns. He didn't look improved last season. Maybe he ultimately develops to just a high flying bench player or 5th starter.

    All the more reason we need to trade our vets ASAP for a long term piece and maximize our draft pick.

    They will end up tanking this year. There will be a run for the bottom from any team not in contention.

    I don't understand what the Clippers are doing if PG statements are true... that he asked for the Kawhi extension and was told no.

    Even if the Clippers just gave PG the 4 year max and it doesn't work they could've traded him in February. The Clippers have none of their picks the next 4 years anyways.
