Yeh we are, team has fallen apart since the injuries and all the trade rumors. We need to probably go 20 - 10 from here to make the playoffs.


#802

Philly… Simmons, Reddick, Butler, Tobias Harris & Embiid.


#803

Quite a good starting 5, It seems like Philly is focusing a lot on this season, as both Harris and Butler would be free agents at the end of it and would ask for the max.


#804

It has been reported Philadelphia wants to extend both guys and make this their ‘big four’. As a Giannis fan this sucks.


#805

How would Philly fit 4 max contracts in the cap ? :thinking:


#806

I think Simmons is still on his rookie contract. Redick is up for an extension too so he might take less money in order too make the Harris/Butler signings happen. I’m not that educated in the cap stuff, but I think they have some room to work with.


#807

Simmons is still on a rookie contract for one more season, but long term I don’t see how they can fit all 4 in.


#808

Celtics are doing pretty well lately.

Also, what do you think about that?


#809

I think they’ve gone all in in hopes of getting to the final this year. I like the trade for Harris. I think if they don’t make the finals, Butler walks. If they win it all, they may sign them all and pay the fine. I do think there is a lack of depth. I like the trade for Harris. He’s a team player with a great attitude. If anyone walks, it’s Butler, and I don’t see that as a bad thing. It opens up plenty of cap space and you save yourself the headache of a high maintenance player who could ruin the chemistry- Philly doesn’t need a blowup.


#810

Shumpert off to the Rockets. Everything the Rockets are doing is making up for mistakes for Morey in the summer. He had a really bad one and it might lead to Harden getting another MVP lol.

Harrison Barnes is traded to the Kings too.


#811

La Var :fire:


#812

LeBron James WITH Lonzo Ball isn’t going to win a Championship in LA either.


#813

Couldn’t watch the whole thing with all that bullshit coming out of his mouth.


#814

#815

That’s quite a good trade, a bit late, but still good. the EC playoffs are going to be fantatstic to watch.

J.Simmons to Philly isn’t bad either.


#816

Orlando is trading for Markelle Fultz, league source tells ESPN.

#817

The top 4 teams in the East are arguably the 2nd-5th best teams in the league, Eastern Conference playoffs should be rather interesting after the first round.


#818

Not sure what Boston will offer.


#819

Probably a lot of draft picks but I think a lot of it depends on Kyrie Irving. If he leaves in free agency they won’t make a big offer to NO.


#820

That Celtics vs Lakers game was crazy, Lakers shot exceptionally from 3 and Rajon Rondo won it on the horn after the ball deflected to him.
