A Disastrous Trade?
A Colangelo Level Disaster
Things are good. There is no denying things are good. If you can avoid fights about Brett Brown or Spike finding a reason to think literally everything besides Jonathon Simmons isn't good, the Sixers are basically a good time when they're not losing to the Bulls.
But Andrew Unterberger has this terrible feeling in the pit of his stomach, and it looks like Landry Shamet. Pay no attention to the fact that this means AU has something in his stomach that sort of looks like Spike.
The Sixers gave up a lot in the Tobias Harris trade, but it has Unterberger thinking there's a chance that trade could look worse than anything Colangelo did. Those are his words.
Here's just a small sample:
The other reaction is usually “Well, yeah, it’s a disaster if Harris leaves.” And well, yeah, it’s a disaster if Harris leaves. Obviously in the case of him bolting for another team in free agency, having given up three premium assets -- Shamet, our lottery-protected 2020 first-rounder, and a totally unprotected Miami 2021 first -- for a half-season of a maybe-top-30 player is not a great outcome. That’s a guaranteed catastrophe of Fultz-sized proportions.

Late Game Brett Brown Issues
Spike and Mike did a pod on Wednesday night after the Bulls game and found a way to find critiques for Brett Brown without deciding to fire him. It's a novel concept.
There is also a deep dive into JJ Redick's new haircut, and who would play Spike and Mike in the Process movie that will probably never get made.
