So Ben Simmons already knows the Sixers are taking him? Sorry Ben, but I am now hoping you're a bust. Nothing personal , we just need true last vestiges of this fucking Process to fail miserably and be buried in the sand
Vibe in Philadelphia is finally extremely positive. It's a shame Hinkie won't be able to bask in any glory should this work out over the next couple of years. A lot is predicated on Embiid's health, but Ben Simmons, Okafor, and next year's Kings pick should be a solid core. Noel is B+ if one focuses on defense. There are probably a million other picks I'm forgetting. Saric I don't see coming this year, because he'll wait for more money.
Jaylen Brown looks like Manny Pacquiao? If you told me yes, I'd believe you. Never seen the guy (Brown, not Manny) or remember hearing about him.
I see that he's from Cal, which may explain it. But still
the weird part is the celtics should've just traded every single first round pick and an asset(s) for an allstar player because next year they could be in the same position to get a possible top 3 pick (because of a pick swap - Nets trade from 2013 is the gift that keeps on giving!).
its kind of obvious what will happen though... Kevin Love will probably be traded to the celtics with that Jaylen Brown pick. I would've wanted Ibaka more than K love though. I don't mind K Love, but would rather you just start offering Jaylen and the whole boat for legit all star because either way the Nets are going to suck next year so that top 5 pick is there next year again.
its kind of funny because the Celtics are like Philadelphia in that they might be getting top 10 picks for the next two years (because of that Nets trade and possibly with the Mavericks swap if the Mavs decide to bottom out). Conversely they are the opposite of Philadelphia because they're making the playoffs and doing great things while getting those lottery picks.
