My Thoughts on...
1. Things starting to heat up ahead of the very important December 15th date
In a mere 48 hours we heard that Dame Lillard and his camp over the summer floated the idea of trading CJ McCollum and 4 1st round picks for Ben Simmons to Blazers brass, that the Sixers actually did make an offer for Dame, that Chauncey Billups has already lost the locker room, and the Pacers are ready to blow it up. It's only Thursday! But with so much smoke I've never been more certain that there will be some fire next week. I'm not sure that it will culminate in THE trade but I don't expect Morey and Co to not be extremely active behind the scenes.
2. Sixers 3 game win streak
Totally uninspiring, oddly enough. The brightest spot obviously being though that the big fella continues to round into post-Covid shape and has absolutely cooked on the offensive end especially, which is a terrific sign.
3. Maxey fitting in
His jumper has regressed back to the mean like we expected but if I see him in the Simmons (Dunker) spot again I will be placing Doc Rivers under Citizen's arrest. Come on man, he's so much more important than how he's currently be utilized.
4. Tobias Harris
Oof. No I'm not offering the "Nice guy..but" I don't care if he's nice or an asshole, he's very mid. He's playing basketball not taking my daughter to fucking prom, the cut of his jib matters none to me. He's good at what he's good at but even that stuff pisses you off so...yea.
Once a year, Stateside puts out their Black Label Bourbon... it's that time of year. For a limited time, get a bottle of the bourbon, and a bottle of the famous Stateside Vodka, for $79.99... SHIPPED! Hit their website and order from just about anywhere in the United States.
The Rest From The Best
Sixers beat the Hornets for the 16th straight time which is WILD if you think about how many times Sixers/Hornets has come down to the wire over the years. Sixers Adam has the low down from last night.
And just like that, we're in panic szn portion of the NBA schedule which, as Andrew Unterberger puts it, is prime reason why you should always wait and see when it comes to buying and selling in the trade market.
