Can't argue with that I guess. I just think it has to be frustrating for the coach. The other is, and I am not there to hear this, what do fans think when they pay to see a game and he isn't playing. I suppose it is like a lot of BB games where the star sits out. Might not be happy but it is just a fact of life.

They appear to give him his days off on the road if at all possible knowing the home crowd has expectations of seeing him. I'm going on the 24th. He better play!

What is going to happen with Fultz. Do you see him playing by then

Yeah - they still can't close out some big leads but they are fun to watch. Simmons can't shoot and is still one of the more exciting players to watch in the league. Tough loss yesterday. It will be interesting to see if Embiid plays tonight in his first back to back in perhaps ever? He's been cleared as long as he feels up to it.

As for Fultz, it appears to be completely mental. I hope we have a good witch doctor for him because we could use the college version of Fultz right about now.

The Thunder game was national so I saw most. Sixers just aren't in that class yet. Like most sports you have to have your high picks pan out. Maybe he'll be there next year. Are you headed out to Minneapoils

Debacle last night. The Nets shot the lights out and we just crapped the bed. Lick our wounds and see if Embiid can play back-to-back on Fri/Sat for the first time ever.

Didn't see it but read the results. Like the Flyers in that it is nice the team is on the verge of being relevant. Better than knowing going in that they won't be in the game. Just need one or two more good basketball players; can they do that?????? Hope so but still got to see it

The Sixers have rebounded nicely. Embiid scared the shit out of me with all his writhing around on the ground. Redick calls him a great actor. I hope that's the case. Adding Belinelli for nothing is a great shot in the arm. They need bench scoring and that's what he delivers. They have a really favorable schedule down the stretch too.

I think I saw somewhere a day or two ago that since the SB the Sixers and Flyers are 8-0. Nice to see a little sunshine.
I think I put it on the EFO board but it was real nice to see Embiid, et al supporting the birds showing up to support the Sixers
