Oh Yeah, The Sixers
He's Still Here.... Let's do some questions!
1. What are you buying or selling less than a month out of the trade deadline?
The only certainty right now is 50 points. However, business is certainly picking up, I think probably every single buyer or fringe contender has called the Sixers and we're going to continue to hear about who offered what and what Morey's response was. It is also Trade Szn though so I urge and remind everyone to take everything with a 6'10 point guard who won't play PF or shoot the ball sized grain of salt, but unfortunately the noise won't stop until The Trade or they finally resolve to say that they are Ok keeping 25 on ice till Summer.
2. How much of "We don't need any help" do you buy from Joel (50 POINTS!!) Embiid?
Is there a such thing as negative zero? I'll never call Jo a liar (atleast not to his face) but he's just being a great teammate and employee which is fine, no need to publicly throw rocks at the house. I also think it's incredibly cool and important that he is saying these things and publicly showing support for his teammates, whether he truly believes he can carry the load or not.
3. BBall Paul just got sent down to Delaware, thoughts?
Extremely unfortunate and honestly really an indictment on how stubborn Doc Rivers gets in his coaching and rotations. I really hope if they're just going to let him rot that they explore other options for him at the deadline so he can be somewhere and actually get valuable minutes.
4. What else/Whom else should be on the trade wishlist?
That's an easy question that most likely won't get answered in 4 weeks but this team lacks so much ball handling, athleticism and guys who are competent on both ends of the court that it honestly hurts to watch them some (most) nights, even when they win! So, I do think there'll be some moves but the ultimate solve probably is still out there until offseason.
5. FIFTY FUCKING POINTS
Color Star Tech Gets Its Own Section
The Sixers are no longer partners with Color Star Technology (have you heard they're on Nasdaq), but that's not stopping us in any way. There is some new stuff in the Color World World, check it out below.
Sir Lucas did an actual interview?
Color Star threatened to sue The Defector, the letterhead they used is awesome.
JR Mailey seemed to find out Sir Lucas' actual identity.
On last night's Ricky, the guys broke down all of the new updates. As usual, worth it for Mike's face.
The Rest From The Best
Nobody (me included) reaallly expects this team to contend for a chip pre or post trade, so maybe, just maybe, let's kick the can a little longer?
Established in 1992, the Black Women in Sport Foundation, or BWSF, is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to increase the involvement of black women and girls in all aspects of sport, including athletics, coaching and administration. BWSF’s work, however, is not limited to black women and girls. It enrolls girls and boys in the programs conducted throughout the city of Philadelphia and surrounding areas. It facilitates the involvement of women of color in every aspect of sport in the United States and around the world, through the "hands-on" development and management of grass roots level outreach programs.
