The Lounge>****OFFICIAL NBA Playoffs Thread****
KC_Connection 10:11 AM 08-28-2020
Have been banned from the other thread by an apparently sensitive snowflake (ironically after dozens of pages of political discussion from others) so I'll stick my thoughts on the NBA Playoffs here from now on. We needed a new thread anyway.

:-) 76ers are dumbasses.

ESPN Sources: Philadelphia 76ers All-Star Ben Simmons will not report for opening of training camp next week and intends to never play another game for the franchise. Simmons hasn’t spoken to team since a late August meeting when he communicated this message to Sixers officials.

Morey overplayed his hand and should have dealt this guy in the offseason. They got plenty of offers and took none of them.

Butler tried to tell the 76ers about Brett Brown and Simmons.

To be fair, situations like that are the new norm for young players in the NBA. Itís one thing for Butler to assert himself as alpha dog in the locker room. Itís another thing to team hop and get disgusted by your teammates everywhere you go. Heís going to be disappointed unless he winds up on an already established title contending team with vets on it

Simmons has some glaring flaws as a player. So did Wiggins and Towns. But Jimmy Butler is a fucking asshole

Why is this on them? He choked away the playoffs while embiid was busting his ass playing on one leg.

For not trading Simmons for Harden when they had the chance to.

Yeah, Ben Simmons is a major fucking pussy, but when the coach and other star throw him under the bus, back it up, then peel out over the top of him again, the GM spends the entire off-season dangling him as trade bait leaking reports that no one is offering what they want because he sucks so bad, and the fans have made him public enemy #1 in Philadelphia, you can't act shocked when he says he doesn't want anything to do with the organization anymore and tanks his value even further by refusing to play. It's not like the 76ers are world beaters without him either. 17-17 record, good enough for a play in at best. They've irrevocably fucked this up unless Portland goes full retard and actually gives them Dame like they're desperately hoping for.

:-) Now Doc is in the media desperately trying to convince everybody he didn't mean what he said after that Game 7 fiasco.

In hindsight that looks BRUTAL.

:-) I guess, but Harden is the biggest choker in the entire league. Combine that with his demeanor and Philadelphia would eventually run his ass out too.

it could have been huge because they wouldn't have to play embiid a million minutes. Dwight Howard is fine as a backup but Howard and Simmons together is a black hole for the offense.

Iíd venture 100% (of rational) a Philly fans would rather have that than this.

Didn't the Simmons/Harden deal fall though because of Houston? Philly thought they had a deal but Houston was just using them to get the best offer out of Brooklyn, and never had any intention of trading him to Philly because they were butthurt about Morey.
