    BB needs to go with embiid, Scott, Tobias, Jimmy, and Ben to close games out in the playoffs. He also needs to close halves out with the starting five as much as possible. Dudes are gonna rest at the half anyways, they needa be out there as much as possible

    I think both the Sixers and JJ will be ok with that.

    You crazy as hell if you think JJ doesn’t wanna stay with the Sixers. We saw in that documentary his only other two options because of his family are basically the Knicks and Nets.

    He didnt say JJ should walk. He (and a lot us) believe its best for JJ to come off the bench instead of starting.

    I would agree. It’s just a matter of who we’d get to replace him. Has to be another shooter. But one that won’t get killed on defense half the time.

    Of our current options, Zhaire and Shake are the leading candidates. Shake has shown to be a capable shooter/defender with some athleticism. Zhaire is a question mark but could work. Depends on Jimmy tbh

    Yeah, I love JJ and his two-man game with Embiid. I think his role will heavily depend on how Zhaire pans out.

    Also, I know this will be a long shot, but Butler is currently playing like he's an 80 to 90 million dollar guy. I'm wondering what the demand will be for his talent and if we can get away with that price.

    If we don’t resign Butler, the team should go after Danny Green or Brogdon.

    Give a listen to Lowe Post with Brett Brown if you guys have some time. Zach asks him a lot of questions we’d all probably want to ask him and I appreciate the honesty he replies with.

    I listened to Brown in the Woj podcast right after listening to the Atlanta GM episode. First of, the Atlanta GM was so methodical in the way he thinks and Brown is more feelings based.

    It basically confirmed that he's good and making people trust him, buy into the culture and work hard but not as good with the tactics, game planning and in game adjustments.

    I will give the Lowe podcast a listen.

    i might check out both right now. The EB/Woj one was really good.

    I agree on BB being feelings based. He's got the manager part of coaching down pack. Its the XOs he's lacking in but hard to condemn him when we has G Leaguers for 3.5 years

    Our biggest loss last year was Lloyd. We really need to hire a better assistant coach. We took a dip defensively this year because we lost Lloyd, plus our offense is still not where we want it to be.

    The Lowe/BB pod is actually pretty good. He "gets" it and still has room for improvement on a XOs stand point. Still need a better assistant than Lang but if any coach can get Jimmy, Jojo, Ben, Tobias to get along, it's definitely BB

    I though BBs rotation last night worked pretty well. Also, on a random note I wouldn’t be mad at all if they spend their first round pick on dude from Carolina. Shamet-esque in the sense that he’s a pure shooter and is a fringe 1st rounder. Plus he has better size and potential as a defender

    It's one thing to be set and shoot a shot with confidence, it's another thing to make something out of nothing and be just as confident

    I’m loving the new rotation of keeping Ben/Joel/JJ and Jimmy/Tobi together.

    Now BB just gotta get rid of the JJ/TJ and Ben/TJ lineups.
