Joel Embiid. I still don't know what happened in that series but grit and intensity weren't issues for the Sixers this season. They play hard every night.

Default Hard, yes

Smart, not so much, in no universe should a 7 foot center be hoisting threes from the top of the key, especially in the late stages of an elimination game

embiid needs to show up in much better shape at the start of this season. i think his lack of conditioning / stupid ass rest periods were detrimental in the boston series. he looked gassed.

He did looked gassed, but he was the one guy who came to play every night in that series. Still scratching my head over Simmons a bit. I agree that it is time to take the kid gloves off with Embiid.

Completely agree, but that mask toyed with his head, IMO.

McConnell. Dario too, that one dumb play where he didn't chase down a loose ball notwithstanding.

Responding to you and Harv at the same time:

Embiid's lack of conditioning is why he would hoist 3s late in games. When you're tired, the thought of banging with Horford or Baynes in the paint may not be as enticing as putting up a 3. This is his first offseason since being drafted where he's going to be (knock on wood) healthy enough to actually work out all summer. The conditioning SHOULD change.

As far as Ben, I think he just got too far inside his own head, as young players can sometimes do. Everything came so easy for him most of the year, especially down the stretch. Boston threw him a curveball and then the fans and media started in on "if he can't shoot he can't be successful" and it all just sort of snowballed.

At the risk of sounding like Dungeon Majesty with a silver lining view ...

I was talking basketball last night with two guys I know who are Boston fans.

One of them said he actually loves Simmons' game ... and then said he thinks it may have been a blessing in disguise that he got somewhat embarrassed with that -64 (or whatever) performance he had.

Said it should give him more incentive to actually work on a jump shot this summer.

Made me nod my head sideways and consider the possibility.

The Sixers have already said they're looking to bring in another shooting coach. They should be offering an OBSCENE amount of money to the Spurs shooting coach Chip Engelland.

Steve Kerr used to trust him when tweaking his shot and he took Kawhi and Tony Parker from "no outside shot" to good to great shooters. Obviously Brown knows him from his days down there too. Get him and lock him in the gym with Ben and Markelle.

Embiid started looking gassed in late March/April. He definitely is not in NBA shape. This should surprise no one. He hasn't had an off season...ever.

Fultz is a bust. Doesn't really want to play NBA. Wants to be an accountant. Heard through the rumor mill--son knows son of an Eagles Doctor who is close with Sixers doctor. Fultz has to be moved.

hahahaha. 17 games into his career.

For the record, no one WANTS to be an accountant.

Default Fultz

I just don't get all the people already calling Fultz a bust. I thought the kid looked great at the end of the season, especially considering he didn't play all year. The same people were probably ready to write off Nelson Agholor and look how that turned out.

Just passing on hearsay from a credible source. And, yes, some people want to be accountants.

No doubt ... my son knows the uncle of a friend's lawn maintenance guy who's married to the sister of the head of accounting for discount farm implements store and he says accounting is much more lucrative and interesting than playing NBA basketball.

they learned a valuable lesson. I (we?) got wrapped up in 'why not this year?' with this team but they didn't know how to win a series like this yet. And, most teams fail before they get over the hump. MJ's bulls vs Bad Boys....Golden State got whipped for a while in postseason before they figured it out...Brad Stevens started out 0-6 in playoffs in Boston.

it's hard to remember facts like that when i'm all wrapped up in the euphoria and feeling we (not they) are a team that will make NBA finals. I never thought we'd win title this year but felt confident they'd make it.

Ben Simmons should do NOTHING but shoot tens of thousands of 12 footers this offseason.
