Joel Embiid in October 2018:


"This is not a rivalry. I don't know our record against them, but it's pretty bad. They always kick our ass."

Joel Embiid in February 2020:


“What I said was that All-Star Game fourth quarter, I’m out there with some of the guys that are considered the best players in the world and I’m out there just dominating, being unstoppable, doing whatever I want, especially in the post. So to me, I just felt like that was a chance for me to prove that I deserved being in that conversation of being the best player in the world.....

Yea, f–k it. Yea, I believe I am [the best player in the world]. Yea, f–ck it. My bad. I do believe it. When I play like tonight anything can happen.”



Now is the time to prove it, JoJo.

This is a goddamned division rival. This should be a great series; personally, I think it goes the distance even without Simmons playing. Truth is I don't trust the Celtics to play consistently well enough to win it as easily as they should...but I still have them winning in 7. I'll definitely watch every game.

All that being said...I'm way more interested in the Lakers/Blazers series. Lillard is the best player in the bubble by wide margin and I just feel like he's poised to do something historic.

Let's see what happens next game.

But if those sort of numbers continue you are correct in saying the Sixers don't stand a chance.

And he will also miss games for the birth of a child. So we can pretty much count him out until/unless the celtics make the Finals. Can't blame him but it's looking like his signing was for nothing.

I think I want ro see the celtics go with a more conventional line up. Smart is probably the leader of the team but I'd keep him in the same role playing big minutes of the bench and start Kanter to fight off Embiid and compete on the boards. Smart would still play in the clutch of course but if the rebounding is respectable Tatum and Brown should be able ro lead the team past Philly.

lol Stuck with him. He's been very good all season long and this was basically a fluke injury that could have happened to anyone. That's pretty much how it's been for him since he's become a Celtic...bad luck. If he was on any other team this season he'd be averaging his Jazz 2017 numbers. Him being so unselfish and such a great playmaker has allowed someone like Brown to flourish.

I want to move on from Hayward as well. He is not worth that contract.. But I think people here are underselling what he does for Boston now.. He can knock down open shots and does a decent job as a playmaker. Boston doesn't have single forward or guard (other than Smart) to come off the bench I trust.

Grant Williams?? Semi O?? Wannamaker? Romeo??

Ainge could have picked up a veteran like Jeff Green for the minimum.. He would have been much more playoff ready than any other Celtic choice right now..

He also could have drafted Brandon Clarke twice.. Ainge ****ed up a great opportunity for a title..

Bro, Brown is gone.

His fate has been sealed for some time now.

It is a done deal.

I'm hoping they get Kenny Atkinson.

The main problem is the front office though, there is only so much Brett Brown can do.

It's time to sell the team and clean out the F.O and start again.

Unfortunately they are pretty constrained with the roster at this point.

The front office has completely given him the middle finger.

After they had a decent squad last season, they ran Jimmy outta town, his best friend. Refused to re-sign JJ, who he said he loves playing with more than anyone he has ever played with. Then they let TJ walk who was essentially like his brother.

They did all this to sign an old, washed Horford to a ridiculous contract. Who is his biggest nemisis and actually plays the same position as him.

That is not how you should treat your franchise player unless you want to lose him.

It's shitty because none of this is Brown's fault. We were a bounce away from potentially making the conference finals then the next thing you know his team is gutted. Shake Milton is fresh out the G league, Tobias Harris a journeyman role player most of his career is trying to play the Simmons role, Josh Richardson a treadmill team role player is being asked to create offense, we're relying on a rookie to guard Tatum the next big thing. Nothing about this team fits, Embiid has no consistent shooters around him. There isn't a coach in the league that could make this work.

Brown's gone, and everything that Hinkie built is too. Embiid and Simmons aren't going to be happy too long, we'll eventually have to dump them and go into rebuild mode again. Thybulle's a stud, but I can honestly see them trading him for a can of beans.

None of this is Brett Brown fault? Either you didnt watch the Sixers or you're intentionally playing the other side of the fence. Brett is the main issue with this team. There are other issues but it starts with coaching first and foremost. He's horrible when it comes to developing talent, getting a team to take the next step. Not good with the x/'s and o's, his defensive philosophy belongs in college and his rotations give me memories of Eddie Jordan. Coaching matters. It shows in the boston series where Brett clearly outcoaches him. It shows when Toronto loses Leonard a certified franchise player and they are still a threat out East. Who drafted/wanted Zhaire Smith again??? Yeah lets not take MJP and its no hindsight. Wanted him the entire draft and when he was there it was a no brainer...until we did the unthinkable.

We can talk about Embiid not being much of a leader, probably one of the worst passing big men out of a double team (recognizing one as well), his entanglement with the 3pt line. We can talk about Tobias Harris making first team all no show postseason with "playoff p" George. We can talk about Horford and why he was even signed to begin with? Yes Tobias got overpaid but i get the logic there. Young, prime, compliments your stars, 3rd option. Horford? Come on. Josh Richardson played better under Erik than Brett. A person lookin at it from a stat vs stat standpoint might not get it. Not going to go into Ben "wait for orlando because im going to shoot my ass off" Simmons. Brand GM skills are questionable.

Brett Brown is not the main issue with the team.That is simply not true. The roster is dog shit.

The front office had every possible advantage left to them by Hinkie. Multiple 1st and 2nd round picks, cap space, useful young Players on team friendly deals.

All squandered by the front office.

They have two young all stars yet to reach the peak of their careers. People can make the comment that they don't fit together, but that doesn't matter when they are given to you through the draft. Just make a team to fit around them. That is the only job the front office had to do but they completely f"cked that up. Even with every available opportunity laid at their f"cking feet they just COULD NOT and WOULD NOT do it.

I'm not going to sit here and say Brown should stay as coach. It is time to start fresh. He has had 7 years here and it has come to the point he just isn't going to get it done. It is time for him to move on.

But if you are going to point fingers, you are gonna need your toes because Brett Brown is way down the list of those that deserve blame.

And on the 2018 draft , MPJ was passed over by most teams because he had a broken back and had barely played for a year up to that point. When Brown was the interim GM that summer he managed to move Bridges for Zhaire Smith AND a future first round pick from Miami, which was a GOOD move.

But of course once Brand was made 'GM' then the Colangelo posse were back in business and traded that Miami pick with other picks plus Laundry Shamet for Tobias Harris. Who was in his final year of his contract and would have signed with the Sixers anyway because no other team would be dumb enough to pay the same money.

That is the main issue with team.

But let's be serious, the f"cking slimey pricks Cohen and Rucker are gonna try to suck Josh Harris' asshole and throw Brown under the bus as the scapegoat.

The thing is this time people are gonna wisen up and realize what a shit show they have truley made.

There is no hiding now.

Part of me hopes the Celtics end this today, but I also do want more basketball. And to see which of these supporting cast Sixers can maybe step up at least for a day.

They should do something with Embiid conditioning, he's looking like he just finished 50km marathon.

Both teams relying heavy on their starters.

Tobias Harris fell sideways, with his face/head smacking hard down on the court as he landed.

Fortunately, he's now walked off the court. Still might have a face/head injury but at least he was able to walk off the court to the locker room or medical room or wherever at a normal speed without help.
