    This reminds me of when the NBA Store opened in NYC and they had a black leather jacket with all the team logos on it. I wanted it to so bad. It was like $5000.

    This is a really good point.
    My problem is that his coach and players around him have given up a bit. That leads me to believe it's more about the player than the skills.

    I don't think that was the biggest takeaway from that debacle of a press conference

    I think the biggest takeaway, by far, was that he believed the roster wasn't the problem and that different coaching would fix it. Everything he has done since that PC has matched that takeaway

    I'd be floored if Olshey ever traded CJ

    Easiest 3 point shot in basketball kick out 3 where players have chance to set their feet. Usually come from offensive rebounds but with a guy like Simmons he creates the open kick out 3’s

    been a long time since we’ve had a guy who makes the game easier for his teammates by setting them up for open shots. Nothing against Dame just not his role

    I really liked Curry not as starter but super sub. To me he’s a diminishing returns player the more time he plays over 25-30 minutes the less effective he is, just opinion no facts to back it up

    Here's what Sixers fans are excited about. Notice his 36 point game in 37 minutes.

    that tweet is 13 hours old and nothing anywhere else. I'm about as skeptical as can be. I guess that's a mild way to say bullshit

    I mean, some of his shots are wayyyyyyy off.
    That's some pathetic stuff.

    I have to say if you read the comments on that dumpster tweet it's hilarious.

    I something like this might happen (has to wait until October because of recent trades of participants, and the picks can't be consecutive):

    This way the Raptors get to offload Dragic, he gets to play for a contender, Philly gets two PGs to replace Simmons but also get a ton of picks from Minny to help in the pursuit of Dame (Morey hopes) - perhaps then bundled with Maxey, Thybulle and the like.

    Ben Simmons has followed one new person on IG in the last few days: Damian Lillard.

    safe to say talks have been happening

    and it happened after Dame followed him last week. Maybe Dame is trying to get in touch w/ him through DMs?

    also looks like Dame is on his honeymoon in Italy atm.

    It just makes a lot of sense for both teams. Kinda like the Nance trade. If Morey is finally coming down from his ego trip, it's possible that serious discussions are finally happening.
