NIANG GANG 💪
The Opening Tip
Hello and Good Day, It's the Corner Three!
Oh Yeah, The Sixers
1. Are the Sixers very good or very advantageous?
A little of both! And that's just fine. They're shooting the lights out, playing very tough on defense, and swept their first homestand 4-0. Not to mention they're doing all of this with now two gaping holes in their rotation left by Ben Simmons (Or his replacement) and Tobias Harris who will spend the next 10 days recovering from Covid-19.
2. What are you seeing in Maxey?
My hopes and dreams. He's coming along just fine and I respect Doc keeping him in the starter's role even with Shake being back. I won't hold my breath because, well, it's Doc, but would be a very welcomed surprise if he stays at that spot in the rotation all year.
3. You running with the Niang Gang?
4. Is BBall Paul getting enough run?
Ehhhhhh. No but he did get a few non-garbage minutes last week so I won't kill Doc on it..yet
5. How you feeling about Embiid's health?
Really a huge downer for me. I know the big fella wants to be out there but man he just looks like he's wearing cement shoes at times and his shot has zero lift and I know it's solely due to the knee. Then there's times when he'll up and block a Demar Derozan dunk so who the hell really knows.
