              Get ready for the Sixers to become Warriors 2.0 if they win the championship. Most of their games will become nationally televised and kids all over will be walking around with Embiid and Simmons jerseys.. and with Embiids cockiness, this team will become unbearable!

              Honestly, I can't wait!

                    It's ok about JJ Redick, Ersan Ilyasova can lend him a citizenship since the guy is either Trukish or Uzbekish, or both.

                      You hit he nail on the head though talking about all these 6'10" guys. People keep saying smallball is the new thing, citing the Warriors' death lineup as an example. But even that lineup has no one shorter than 6'7" except Curry. The new thing is medium ball so that you can constantly switch. That's why, as a Spurs fan, I'm excited about Dejounte Murray as a 6'5" point guard.

                        Embiid is awesome and important for the team but his month out leading to the playoffs was great to have the Sixers work on other ways to score.

                                  Coach, have you noticed that Lebron is stepping into the paint illegally on his free throw attempts? I wondered why he was shooting so well and realized he's adopted the post-season Shaq technique.

                                    The 76ers are a very suspicious antichrist team that plays luciferian basketball

                                      By the way, if LeBron joins the Sixers, embid will have to play shooting guard and Simmons has to play a rolling center. Because LeBron hates centers.

                                          It's different to see a scary lineup have four and a half white guys in it!

                                          Also, two years ago the Spurs beat this team by 51, and Pop said it's a shame Brett Brown (former Pop assistant) doesn't have the talent to demonstrate his coaching abilities. He's able to demonstrate it now, but people don't talk about his ability to get his players to work well together.

                                                        This line up is deadlier once Simmons learns the three ball.

                                                                                  I love this Sixers team. They've got the problems of all young teams (all the TOs, my god), but they run a beautiful offense with the sort of cutting and passing and shooting that is only matched by the Warriors, and they hustle on D and play with heart.

                                                                                  I hated Philly when they were tanking, and I'm still a little bitter that a few good prospects seemed to have their careers ended before they could even begin because they had the misfortune of being drafted to the Sixers, but this team right now is a good reminder of what is good and pure about basketball. I don't think they're good enough to win a chip and I worry what that kind of success would do to young egos, but I would love to see them in a series with the Rockets/Warriors.

                                                                                          Got a story idea for you. I think the emerging 76ers culture owes quite a lot to a team called the Melbourne Tigers and a coach called Lindsay Gaze. No doubt Coach Popovich is due his share of credit ... and of course most is due to Brett Brown and what he makes of the group at his disposal.
                                                                                          Over 40 years ago a 'Yank' turned up and coached my team in New Zealand. He had come by way of Melbourne. He couldn't stop talking about his coach there ... a guy I'd never heard of at that stage - called Lindsay Gaze. He had an effect on people. And, of course, Ben's Dad played for him.
                                                                                          The NBA is commonly called a 'players' league'. Yeah, but how many 'players' teams' actually win. Seems to me coach driven teams - or teams with leading players with more modest egos win ... most of the time.
