Default 5 points in 20+ minutes...

Dudes a fucken bust. Tatum is a star. Huge miss. The worst NBA misstep of the 2000s by far as an entire Process was predicated on it. A Process the Sixers RAN from and are now litigating to be a part of. There is no Process. The Process does not fit the process definition. I own all this.

The problem now is they are trying to force him into the lineup at the expense of what Simmons is best at

He just needs to actually get some run with Embiid and Simmons.

The Celtics are just in another league right now with their depth.

Its something different than this. Hes got some mental issue, IMO. Go back and watch some of his stuff from Washington. It wasnt just the bad teams. He played/looked completely different in everything he did.

At least wait until the end of the season to write him off.

The talent is still there. He just needs to build some confidence and chemistry with the starters.

One game. ONE GAME. and my hopes for this season are already over.

Boston is 100x better team. Were fucked.

Fultz over Tatum makes me Fucking sick. And irate. And depressed. I fucking hate Bryan Colangelo. Danny Ainge played him like a goddamned fiddle.

not ONE outside shooter. Simmons still allergic to a pull up J. Teams
Will give him and Embiid their stats. Look good on paper but one dimensional team that can ONLY crash rim and shoot from 3 feet from rim.

Nauseating. Depressing. Expected.

I need a cocktail.

He needs to be on the ball. Hes a PG. he and Simmons cannot co-exist.

He can only get better/confidence if hes bringing ball up and distributing. Thats never gonna happen if simmons on floor at same time

That was what was so depressing about last night. They aren't going to beat Boston. I don't know why I forgot about that over a few months.

Brett Brown is no prize either. This idea of starting Fultz the first half and Redick the second half sounds pretty fucked up to me. Fultz ended up playing 3 minutes in the 2nd Half. Bust or not you have to play him to find out if he's ever going to turn into anything.

Boston is going to own them for years unless they pull off a miracle and sign 2 big free agents next year, if they fail star hunting, Simmons could head to LA in a couple years and this thing can blow up in a hurry like it's doing in Minnesota.

When LeBron and Kobe came out of high school, you knew they were developed and mature beyond their years. You knew they were special. I see that with Tatum. I don't see it with Fultz. He looks like someone brought their little brother to play with the big kids. As mentioned before, my gut tells me he's Eric Snow.

ha, Eric Snow! He does have a body type sort of like him, and a shot somewhat like him in that its in front of his body, but he's not slow, not as strong, and plays nothing like him. He looked very nervous and lost in his place out there. Not shocking in his 15th career game. Embiid was pretty awful last night too.

Kobe was not very good his first year. You could see he had talent, but he was not a good player that first year.

Kobe was never bad. He just didn't play that much early. He certainly didn't need a shot doctor to fix his shot. He went right from high school to the NBA and never got the yips. I'm not asking this immature kid to be Kobe but he's far from worthy of being a first overall pick.

I'll have to disagree. Kobe was bad at times, but what he wasn't was scared. Almost every NBA rookie, especially the straight from HS guys or one and done has to find their NBA looks, and where they can get them, and has to be willing to get stuffed. Fultz looks scared to look stupid, and you can't have that. He did look more confident on attempts near the rim, but even then had hesitation that you can't have in the NBA. its his first opener, first regular season game starting, lot of firsts. Lets hope he gets a lot more chesty. I have seen plenty of glimpses as to why he could be a stud, just not the consistent attitude to get him there. Not gonna freak out over the first game though.

If Fultz and Simmons are both on the floor then Embiid is going to have 3 guys on him the second he touches the ball near the paint. We all know that Simmons' jump shot is somewhere between "non-existant" and "work in progress," but Fultz is supposed to have a jumper. It's going to kill their offense.

Did Brown give a reason for Fultz's no-show in the second half?
