Or, Goran Dragic 2.0.
As for my squad, this Sixers season will probably start the same way last season ended-losing to the Celtics in Boston.

As always, I refuse to get down about the presumed inevitability of GSW as champs again. The journey is everything. Watching growth of the younger guys is probably my favorite thing. The funny stuff and the drama, it's all a part of the sport.
Having said that, it WOULD be nice if Washington surprises me (and everyone else) by actually meshing as a unit and going deep, but my overall desire is to see teams playing at their peak. Especially the ones who will be on ABC and ESPN the most. (Looking at you Lebron. Please no more prime time abominations like last year.)

BTW, let's talk about Jimmy Butler. I think it's obvious that he has badly overplayed his hand. He is not a Top 10 who anyone out there absolutely HAS to have.
The level of guys who teams were willing to give up for him is nowhere near what the T-Wolves want. He may well be stuck in Minneapolis.

Yeah, so much for the Timberwolves being "the team of the future" out West. Jimmy Buckets wants out, Karl Anthony-Towns had an awful postseason debut last year and Andrew Wiggins appears to be no better than a good "#3 player." And to your point, I don't see any team out there willing to go all-in to make a trade for him before the trade deadline this season. Of all the star players the Sixers might be able to get next year, he's the one guy I definitely would not want them to sign. He'll probably end up getting a big free agent deal with some team like Brooklyn, and his time there will end up being similar to Carmelo Anthony's time with the Knicks-where he puts up All-Star level numbers, but it doesn't translate into team success.

Ugh, that was a sobering start to the season.
It was like watching one of those second round playoff games from last season. The absence of two reliable outside shooters from last season - Ersan Ilyasova and Marco Belinelli - was glaring for the Sixers. JJ Redick is the only reliable outside shooter they have now and, unfortunately, he was off his game tonight. Of course, the most frustrating/depressing aspect of watching this game is that Jayson Tatum looked GREAT once again. Meanwhile, despite getting the starting nod, Markelle Fultz was a complete non-factor (24 MIN, 5 PTS, 2-7 FG, 3 TO).

Ingram suspended four games, Rondo gets 3, Paul gets 2.
I'd be fine with 10 games for Ingram, since he's in the wrong twice over. I'm surprised it's so lenient.

i'm torn. for one, the Nets have their pick this year and i'm giddy that we have a chance at the Duke 3, on the other hand. Caris and the Fro are looking like they're going to be fuckin stars, and we maybe should try for the bottom of the playoffs in the east. I'm kind of in the mindset to let it ride out and let a top 10 pick join this roster, though it also might mean we have to Max D'angelo. Hopefully he shows he's worth the money.

Your team (Nets) is one of those teams in the league I know like nothing about. I mean, shit, other than D'Angelo, I have no idea who is on that team or who the coach is. Does that Russian oligarch still own the team or was he able to sell it?

As for the Chris Paul vs. Rajon Rondo fight, that's been like a decade in the making. Everyone knows Rondo's a badass, but I think casual NBA fans get fooled by those State Farm commercials and don't realize that Chris Paul is one of the biggest shit-talkers in the league.
By the way, both the Lakers and Thunder are off to 0-3 starts. Meanwhile, matchmaker's Raptors are 4-0!

Prokorov was looking to sell the team for a minute, but he's backed off. He's majority owner of the team and he has a stake in the real estate aspect of the surrounding area of Barclays. After hiring Marks he's backed away and let Marks fix the shit that King put the Nets in. So far Marks picks of Allen and Caris LeVert look like they're on their way to being stars in this league, and Kurucs/Musa the two picks this year are looking good as well. Especially Kurucs who we got in the second round and immediately broke into the rotation. We'll have enough for 2 max contracts if D'Angelo is renounced and we finally are past the pick swaps from the Boston deal, so we own our own 1st rounders from here forward. Most fans like myself are in a holding pattern until next offseason, where we really start to move up.
Edit: We're still trying to move Dinwiddie for possibly a pick/young player if there's any takers.

Blake Griffin sighting: he scores 50 points in the Pistons' overtime win against Philly last night. Surely, the greatest moment in the very brief history of Detroit's Little Caesar's (Pizza! Pizza!) Arena.

Steph Curry was like:

By the way, the Milwaukee Bucks whooped the 76ers last night. My Sixers continue to get a lot of hype, but along with the Raptors and Celtics, the Bucks might be another team that the Sixers are looking up at in the standings at season's end. They've got a new coach (Mike Budenholzer) and, quite frankly, I'd take Giannis over Simmons and Embiid as far as "players I'd pick to build my team around."

Lebron James is the closest thing to a hurricane to ever hit Cleveland.
He comes, he goes and he leaves behind destruction and misery in his wake.

Raptors v Bucks isn't quite as stimulating as the early promise: Giannis and Kawhi are both sitting out.
Still, we're getting perhaps an even more insightful look at a possible EC Finals: Bucks are destroying Toronto (122-99) with 4 mins to go.

Klay was dropping one of his monthly nuclear explosions tonight on the Bulls. Broke Steph's single game 3 record with 14 makes.
Steph will probably get it back sometime later this year though. That's just what these bastards do. The warriors get in that 'we want to crush your soul and spirit and cook it into a tasty brew' mode, there's nothing you can do. You're losing by 50

^Not really that impressed. I mean, it was the Bulls without Markkanen, Bobby Portis, Denzel Valentine, or Kriss Dunn. And Steph's big game the other day came against...Washington.
When they start having these kinds of games against a fully loaded Lakers, Houston or Toronto team, I'll be staggered.

Any talk about the Wiz putting Bradley Beal on the trade block?
Yeah, that score caught my attention, but then I heard that both Giannis and Kawhi were not playing. Raptors decided to rest Kawhi in favor of tonight's game against the Sixers, who just played the Hawks in Philly last night. While I think the Bucks and Raptors are two of the three best teams in the conference, I don't think it'll be the two of them in the conference finals, I figure it'll be one of them and the Celtics.

Right now they're being carried by Tatum and the bench. Very good team, they're continuing from where they left off, but its' not going to get them past Milwaukee, Toronto, and you've got to count Philly and Indiana as contenders too.

there's talk about everyone. John Wall will be the toughest as his max deal starts kicking in next season. It made sense at the time, but either 1) he's hit his ceiling or 2) He and Beal just can't function together or 3) Wall can't function with anyone, rubbing everyone the wrong way. However, the Wizards have a talent for 1) giving huge money for talent that doesn't pan out and then 2) somehow managing to trade those "untradeable" deals (See: Howard, Juwan; Arenas, Gilbert) so stay tuned.
Otto Porter's deal...ugh. I said it would be an anchor and it's turning out that way.
Bradley Beal may well turn out to be the most attractive guy, strictly by default.
Of course, if Dwight Howard comes in and immediately starts giving us the inside presence that is desperately needed, then everything could change. The season's just started let's not forget.
Wait, are we actually at the point where we're expecting Dwight Howard to actually be a team's savior? Sweet crap!

The words "ugly" and "dire situation" are way overused in sports.
Having said that, the situation in Cleveland is UGLY and DIRE.

True, it's a clusterfuck there now, but then again, it was only two years ago that they were hosting that championship parade. Certainly not as bad to be a Cleveland Cavaliers fan right now as it is to be a fan of some team like the Orlando Magic or Sacramento Kings.
Just when I thought my Sixers were gonna get on a little bit of a roll, they went to Brooklyn last night and got stomped by Dread's Nets. Sixers are now 6-0 at home, 0-5 on the road.

^Actually Sacramento's off to their best start in years.
Thing about Cleveland -- they got to be the fairy princess for a night, but now the chariot has turned back into a pumpkin. They're back in draft contention, there's no coach, Love's injured, and thanks to the low morale, everybody's looking for the exits. So yeah, they got a championship, but at what cost?
Would you rather be Cleveland now, or be the perpetually ignored, underachieving Orlando?

Sacramento is off to a good start (6-4), however, I brought them up because they've got the league's longest active playoff drought-12 seasons. And, despite that stretch of futility, they've only had a top-3 pick once, and that was this year (Marvin Bagley at #2 overall). And to your question, I'd rather be the Cavaliers now - with memories of a championship parade in the not so distant past - than the Orlando Magic, a franchise which has been terrible, hopeless and irrelevent since Dwight Howard was traded. Additionally, I'd rather be the worst of the worst and have a shot at a superstar pick in the draft (Cavaliers) than not be bad enough to have the opportunity to potentially draft a franchise-lifting superstar (Magic).

Sure, it's early, but the Houston Rockets no longer look like a legit championship contender; they lost to the Westbrook-less Thunder last night.
EDIT: I just watched the Sixers survive an overtime game against the Charlotte Hornets. Once again, it was Joel Embiid saving the day (42 PTS, 11/18 FG, 19/22 FT, 18 REB, 4 AST and 4 BLK). I don't think fans in Philly, not to mention basketball fans in general, realize how mediocre/bad the Sixers would be without him. Seriously, the Sixers would not be a playoff team in the East without him.

I really think it will be fine. The only guy I worry about is Marekelle. It's Embiids team and I think Jimmy knows that.
Man, it's crazy LeBron goes west and the east goes nuts.
On another note. Caris LeVert. There's a reason why Marks refused any trade including Caris and Jarrett

Once it was reported that Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey offered the Minnesota Timberwolves FOUR future 1st-round picks, and they turned it down, I felt like the Sixers were going to make a push for him. I like the trade, although, the ideal situation would have been if they had been able to keep Robert Covington. On the other hand, considering the awful situation Butler put them in, the Timberwolves made out the best they could. I certainly understand why they would go with two starting players instead of Fultz and some future 1st-round picks. (I imagine Fultz's trade value is close to zero at this point.) Like the Sixers, the Timberwolves no longer need/want "future" draft picks, they've already got their top picks (Karl Anthony-Towns, Andrew Wiggins).
I'm glad the Sixers didn't drag it out any longer, that they finally shook things up and made the big move. As I alluded to in my earlier post, the team was just so damn dependent on Joel Embiid offensively, they needed to get a guy that can "create his own shot," as they say in the game. They actually got a glimpse of that type of player in the game they played the night before they made the trade, when the Charlotte Hornets' Kemba Walker torched Sixers' defenders - including Robert Covington - in the second half of the game. Jimmy Butler gives them that type of player now, but the only drawback is that he's not that great of a 3-point shooter. Well, actually, I guess the other potential drawback of Butler would be his attitude, if he doesn't get along with his new teammates. I imagine his agent has had a very direct conversation with Jimmy on that matter, probably saying, "Hey, don't fuck things up this time, not when you're about to hit free agency!"
As for where this puts the Sixers, I'm not so sure it actually moves them up any higher in the Eastern Conference pecking order. Before the trade, I thought they were the fourth best team in the East, behind the Bucks, Celtics and Raptors. With the acquisition of Jimmy Buckets, it probably makes them better than the Bucks, but I feel they are still inferior to the Celtics and Raptors, especially when both of those teams have, without question, a deeper roster than the Sixers. Unless the Sixers make some more moves before the trade deadline, where they can acquire a 3-point shooter or two like they did last season with Ersan Ilyasova and Marco Belinelli, they still won't have a team good enough to get through the East.

Well DAMN that was quick;
On the one hand, DERRRRR, everyone told you guys he was past his prime, inflexible in his style and a sieve on defense, but noooooo…….
….But on the OTHER hand, it seems like they're possibly looking for a scapegoat for their poor showing thus far...

The reason for this post:
Personally, I had no idea who Caris LeVert was until last Friday, when I just so happened to be watching NBA TV when he hit a game-winning floater in Denver. Then, I saw you mention him in a post here after the game.
UPDATE: Great news the day after-. From the story: O'Malley said LeVert will begin an unspecified period of rehabilitation and is "expected to return to full strength and resume all basketball activities without any limitations this season."

I mean, i have no idea how Caris avoided a fracture/break on that play, but i'll take it. Caris coming back in this NBA Calendar year is the greatest shit ever. For me as a Nets fan anyway. Most of us were prepared for a PG/Hayward situation not seeing him for a year or more. Caris and Jarrett are truly the Nets future There's a reason why both of them weren't included in any Jimmy trade package.
Part of me wishes the Nets fail miserably though an we get Cam Reddish. He's the perfect player to slot into Kenny's system, though i wouldn't mind Zion and RJ at all.

So...Golden State
I'd be very surprised if this dustup lingers for a long time; teams have them all the time, even if this one seems a little more volatile. I am puzzled over what's going on D. Green's mind. On what planet do you NOT give KD the ball in the clutch? For a team where everyone (supposedly) "knows their role" this is a strange hill for him to die on.
The Warriors' ecosystem appears to be one that's simultaneously strong (on the court), yet fragile (back office negotiations). If you are a WC team, you have to at least feel a little encouraged that you've now seen visible cracks in the armor. Any weakness that you can get out of Golden State, you'll take it.
Having said that, the've just beaten ATL 110-103 without Steph or Draymond.

Well, a less than spectacular start to this "Big 3" era for the 76ers. Jimmy Butler was just okay (14 PTS on 6-12 shooting), which was to be expected. However, losing to the lowly Orlando Magic was not expected. What's worse is that the Sixers actually had a 16-point lead early in the 4th quarter, but they end up losing by 5. Once Butler settles in, I sure hope this "blowing leads" shit with them will stop; for a team that is supposedly a legitimate conference championship contender, they do this shit all too often.

I mean you don't have to like each other to win championships. Kobe/Shaq are a testament to that. They'll still steamroll through and win another title, and Durant just simply moves on with a max contract to the Nets.
