I have been watching the Sixers closely this year as Jojo and Simmons have been fun to watch and believe it would be a cake walk for the Sixers to win a series over the Raps.

Cleveland is the only obstacle and the only reason I say this is Lebron James but the Sixers look great!

Is there any way the return of Embiid could be negative? These boys are really gelling right now. I know, in the long run, no...but I'd hate to screw up momentum.

There is no way for the sixers to play Toronto. They play the winner of Boston and Milwaukee. Toronto will play Cleveland next round if they get past Washington

Embiid changes the game completely on the defensive end. That alone is worth having him back. As great as they’ve been without him, it’s because the shooters have been beyond hot. If they go cold and you don’t have Embiid that’s a problem. If they go cold and you have Embiid, you can feed him in the paint. Not to mention him being in there forces the opponent to defend the paint even more and opens up the perimeter even more for those shooters.

Again, they’ve been great without him but if you can add the best C without a unibrow, you do it.

Good points. Also, itís going to take 2-4 games to get back to game shape, IMO. This should be a good time to build some chemistry back up, as his minutes will be slightly down at this time.
