Best Team In Basketball? Here's How!
The Opening Tip
Hello and Happy Thursday, it's the Corner Three!
"Honestly right now Tobias Harris is better as a basketball player than as a guy"
Oh Yeah,The Sixers
New Year, New.....Offensive efficiency?! The Sixers are absolutely rolling. Best record in basketball heading into a very crucial stretch where they'll get to show the league just how real they actually are.
Love, Like, Eh - The first of 2021!
Currently the odds on favorite to win his first MVP award is happier, healthier and just playing lights out all around. He'll have his work cut out for him in the next few weeks with clashes with Jokic, AD, on the horizon but all signs point toward the big fella keeping the train chugging along.
All respect due to him. He was shit-talked, asked to do more, imploreddd to do more, and he delivered to the tune of an Eastern Conference Player of the Week nod and helping his team to a 3-0 week. I'm not sure at what clip he can keep this scoring up but if this is the Tobias they get moving forward, the optics will be changed completely. HOWEVER! I wholeheartedly reserve the right to tear his ass up again if he regresses.
Guy is a fucking flamethrower right now. Out of his mind from beyond the arc and averaging career highs in three point percentage and points. He's settled in nicely and the crazy thing is he's still (admittedly) working on his two-man game with Joel Embiid.
Still off and on as far as offense goes and excelling at his strengths there but doing his damndest on defense and continues to look like a DPOY candidate.
League Leading Defense
I'm literally typing this 5 minutes after they gave up 60 points to Brad Beal and 141 points to the Wizards but fuck it man, leading up to last night they had the league's best defense, statistically.
A model of consistency and not looking to slow down anytime soon. I'm happy to see him in a groove and pushing the envelope while leading the second unit.
He's been OK and flat out bad some nights but I like him and hope he can shake off the rust and get into a nice motion. I think he's too smart of a basketball player to not have in your rotation in a big game/playoff scenario but man, if he continues to be up and down I can't say I would blame Doc for giving him a game or two off.
