post #61 of 852

Reports are saying the team feels it could be career threatening. I never knew a growth spurt during an injury could have this much effect

Let the Noel/ Jah Era begin.

So far, the team would look like this:

C: Jah
PF: Noel
SF: Covington
SG: Stauskas
PG: Tony Wroten

6th man: Grant

After thinking about it, I can see Jah and Noel work. Noel has the potential to be a KG type of player defensively and works better facing the basket rather than back to the basket. Jah will dominate the paint (maybe more offensively than defensively) but it can work out. The biggest factor for making this work is if Noel develops a consistent jumper.

If Noel will learn how to play off the ball and become an offensive garbage man, that duo will case problems when team double team Jah on the block. If Stauskas reaches his potential, he will complement this team beautifully.

Wroten, although only 22, still has room for improvement but looks like he suits the 6th man roll best. When Dario Saric comes on next year, our team will look like this:

C: Jah
PF: Noel
Sf: Saric
Sg: Stauskas/ Covington
Pg: (either get someone via lottery, trade Embiid for a PG, or acquire someone via free agency)

6th man: Wroten
Grant
all the other picks in the next few years

Man...this team is 100% potential (which I hate), what this team needs is some veteran leadership. We have to bring a veteran from a winning franchise.

Drafting Jah was legit the smarter pick over Russell in the end.

Hope embiid can still comeback and flourish. Still sucks man..

Jah and Noel will be great together. I can't wait
post #65 of 852

With all the picks we have, my pipe dream would be to trade every one we have this year for Durant (or two 1st + Saric). Realistically, getting Paul George from Indiana if they start off the season bad would be desirable.

We aint got NO chance in getting KD or even George. Whos the last superstar we traded or signed? Prob Moses Malone lol. And we got some vets now in Landry & Thompson. It just sucks that they dont come from a winning franchise tho

One more thing, dont be surprised if Saric does NOT come to the team next year. Hes trying to stay over in Europe for 4yrs so his rookie deal can expire and he can sign for more money smh

Saric looking like a dumb pick.

Dude's gonna keep skipping out on us until he can bypass a rookie contract and then rob us for money we don't even know he's worth.

 

#1 reason why I despise taking international players. You don't know what they're worth and 9/10 they don't work out. At least on an All Star level. I know y'all seen that stat "since Dirk, 22 euros picked top 10, not one all star game" or some ish like that.

post #70 of 852
Yea I hate drafting international players too. Most of them just end up never coming to the league or just end up being some role player. Not every team can draft effective foreign players like the Spurs.

The only reason I wont completely call that Saric pick a failure is cause we actually didnt draft him. We drafted Payton to bait the Magic into giving us the pick they STOLE from us in that terrible (in hindsight) Bynum trade
post #71 of 852

Would have rather just taken Payton at this point.

Lol yea but back then we had MCW and they were basically the same player. I still remember MCWs confused & concerned face. Little did he know he was gon get traded regardless laugh.gifmean.gif
post #73 of 852
Btw a mock draft has us taken Jaylen Brown at 3rd next year...any info on him besides highlight footage nerd.gif

He kinda reminds me of Stanley Johnson but more athletic
post #74 of 852
Jaylen Brown is going to be great. Would be very nice if we were able to get him.

Our plan was finally going smoothly before Lakers took Russell before us and Embiid was declared out for the year again. We would have had our three guys finally in place and ready to not tank again. Guessing it's right back to tanking again unless another move is made.
post #75 of 852
As a Sixers fan you have to expect things are going to go wrong for us when it comes to luck lol. The basketball gods hate us frown.gif

I knew the Lakers were gon mess things up for us since they were targeting bigs in FA & not guards. They had that planned from the go. And Embiid...mean.gif
Well thats the risk you had to take, just wish it went our way for once tho
post #76 of 852
We just got that classic Philly sports luck mean.gif

Still have hope that this will work out though. Excited to see what Jah/Noel/Sauce does together

Welp, sure glad Oak fell to us since Embiid is out. As much as I loved Russell coming into the draft, I feel much better about missing on him. As for Embiid, best case scenario at this point is Big Z right?

Embodies floor is MUCH higher than anything Big Z could have been although his career wasn't bad at all. If Joel plays as long as he did, watch out.

 

I don't think the tank is on this year TBH. This roster is much better off now than it was the end of last season. We actually have NBA caliber talent now rather than Noel an 11 D-Leaguers. Worth's back, Okafor's here. Satsumas gives us something to look forward to and watch. Serviceable guys like Landry and Thompson. Few prospects and young guys to watch develop like Jackson and Grant and Mc what's his name.

 

30 wins is plausible. It'll be a fun watch for once. Lakers taking Russell is the best thing that could have happened to us.

post #79 of 852

You really think his floor is higher than Big Z's career at this point? I honestly want that to be the case, but realistically I don't see that. And if I'm the Sixers I limit his minutes so his numbers won't be ridiculously high, but he could potentially be very efficient. Until I see something, I don't see him as the franchise cornerstone I did this time last year. 

 

As far as tanking, I don't think we will be as bad as we were the previous 2 seasons, but it will still be bad. Might as well make this the OAK4ROY season. I just want a pure point on this roster to get the bigs and the wings the ball. BTW I think McRae is the guy you're thinking of

Honestly, with Okafor in shape and playing with Nerlens, RoCo and Stauskas, 30 wins is reachable. All thats needed is a serviceable pg for a year if Wroten is still iffy to start the season

Probably because Covington is at best a rotation player right now and Stauskas could turn out to be a complete bum.

People really overhype players like Covington and Wroten, these two are on the end of the bench of a 45 win team at best

Both definitely overrated, especially Covington.

 

Give Wroten more credit though. Averaging 17 points in the NBA, albeit he only play in 30 games last year and started half that. Yeah he played on a bad team with no other scoring options and dude shot 40% from the floor, but some of his drives to the rim were flat out outlandish. He's one of the most reckless players in the league, shows from his high turnover percentage. He has a ton of work to do, but he can get the ball in the cup, plays with a lot of energy, and is willing to take shots.

post #86 of 852

Covington isnt overrated to me. He's by default our best wing and probably our best shooter. The fact that he shot almost 40% from 3 while having his shot contested over 80% of the time is worth something. When the team is ready to contend, he's the first wing off the bench but starter by default for right now

Yes they are. Really starting to believe we'll never see embiid play as a sizer.

Just move on fellas. Distance yourselves from this as much as humanly possible. It's not like we ever really had him.

post #90 of 852
Embiid..Damn hate it had to him, but yeah it definitely not looking good now. I'm wondering what could he have been doing to break his foot again, especially since from all accounts he wasn't even practicing hard yet. Or is it just that fragile..him being 7" puts to much stress on it.
