    Joel Embellish will never win a title. He might have a future in acting though.

    I love Brunson but he was bad last night. Deuce and Hart saved them. IHart will have all kinds of issues so he might play less against embiid. That being said, ain't no way oubre is gonna give those kinda problems to Brunson again.

    Hart really saved them. Not only from 3 but he made some clutch offensive rebounds.

He will be constantly trying to find ways to cut corners on the court to preserve himself, be it not defending, not rebounding, not dunking, trying to dominate from the three point line, etc. That team can't win if he can't give his all. This is not worth it.
    He should not have come back and I think he’s on team USA roster? Correct me if wrong. No way sixers don’t talk him out of that nonsense. Embiid just ain’t dependable health wise. I fully expect him to be “out” for a game this series if not next rd. If sixers advance which I think they will.

    Yeah he's on Team USA. His people may have bought into Stephen A Smith's perspective, which is that he will never be healthy so just run him into the ground.

    It’s really this bad. As great as his talent level is, he really does play the game in a lazy dishonest way, and it’s sickening that officials still largely let him get away with it. Joel Embellish it is, from here on out

    the Sixers got caught playing Knicks basketball. They wanted to be the team that makes the passes and moves the ball well, instead of the team that says we're gonna try and punish you in every pick n roll situation depending on whether you switch or not.

    defensively, the sixers should emply a half man half zone scheme. where you weak side plays zone and the strong side plays man to man, without Randle, Harris and Reed are both acceptable rim defenders.

    Also how the fu@k is Embellish on the USA roster ???? Wasn’t he born & raised in Cameroon ? At what age did he move to the USA, and at what age did he become a US citizen ?
