It's not over yet. Hard to look worse than they did on Saturday but you don't get 2 or 3 losses no matter how bad the loss is. It's still just one game. Plenty of talent there, question is whether they play up to it or not. If they do, on to the next round (where who they face could be anyone as 2 of the top 4 seeds in the East lost their series openers), if they don't, then Brown will be let go pretty quickly and they'll have to see whether they choose to spend money on Harris, Butler, and Simmons. Still have to play Game 2 first though.

He's not the end all but I respect Ray Didinger, and hoops isn't his speciality but

And I am paraphrasing his comments from this past weekend
"How can you be an elite NBA player when you can't make shots that the 8th grade CYO team is expected to make on a routine basis and the CYO team shoots FT's better?"

Plus the team can't let you have the ball in your hands with 5 minutes to go because you are a liability with it at that time of the game??


I guess that is elite.

Oh and yeah.....that is sweet to look at!!!! :oops: :oops:

One game after the Sixers played so poorly that I couldn't even watch it, they played one of the best quarters I have ever seen....Absolutely edge of your seat stuff....Evidently Brown got "fiery" (word used by media) at half time...It looked like Brooklyn was playing All Star defense...lol...And Welcome back Harris, Simmons and Redick.....Because they stunk and thats being kind in game one....

We scored 145 and Embiid played 21 minutes.... He is hurting as he didn't even take a shot for some minutes into game....Whatever they did to him at halftime, I hope they do it again because he was a beast to star third....

Can't wait till Thursday...

Very nice win last night. Simmons showed what he's capable of doing. Monroe had good minutes and our guy from the Clippers Harris showed up.

WOW!!! They put on a clinic last night....Hopefully we wont trade Simmons before the next game...LOL...
He and Harris were amazing...The Nets game plan was to deny Simmons the ball and still couldn't stop him..The spaces he creates is second to none...He is also the reason the Sixers lead the league in defensive perimeter ratings....He pored in 31 and took over the game despite the double teaming and collapsing defense when he penetrated...

Greg Anthony made an interesting comment...He said he would like to see Simmons play the 4 and Sixers get a true point as he thinks it would free Simmons up even more....Nets had no answer... He does have to shoot free throws and that is the biggest concern with his game....I loved on how he was out there coaching..He ran a pick and roll w Bobo who didn't roll..There was Ben letting him know....

Darn shame we didnt get Korver off the bench.....Scott sucked last night....We need him to play much better...I guess the Sixers can play half court offense after all....lol...

One of the best games the Sixers have played - they shot the lights out. Simmons, Redick, Harris all excelled. Even Boban was a force!

Thought the same thing Bill...Simmons is the key...When he didn't play against Orlando they were lost...This guy is by far the most unique player in this league..Rookie of year in year 1 an All Star in year 2 as voted by coaches....No one in this league can cover him...The Nets tried to take a page from Celtics to deny him the ball and put the Sixers in a half court set...Great to see Brown's adjustments......Those open looks weren't by accident...They were because of Simmons...Who responded to the horrible article that appeared in a New York paper. Ben answered the bell and challenge...How old is he again..And I repeat....Magic Johnson couldn't shoot either not even a little bit good thing the Lakers didn't trade him....Unbelievable!!!!!!!!!!!

We need to win 2 more but a message was sent...We just won a game without Embiid and scored 131 playing half court......Barkley said before game Sixers had no chance....Brand needed to get another sniper and he did not...

Bobo was terrific out there Bill...I loved the miked up Harris...Nice Touch....I agree w HJ that Monroe has some skill and was a presence out there..They pointed out he was unsure of the rotations so he will only get better,,,

Watch him Pat He doesn't bend his knee's and everything is a line drive...Harper doesn't hit line drives that hard....lol... He plays with the ball in his hands and has to improve..He has but he went from awful too bad...The guy is an extordianary player that every team wishes they had...He is a perennial all star and yes an Elite player in this league....Dont care what Diidinger said, should I post what everybody else says including men who actually played the game.... I don't need their opinions as "Ball don't lie"....If he shot more from deep it would take away from everything else...There are only so many points out there....Everybody has bad games..I, one time had a three base error playing 3rd base on an awful throw that allowed 2 runs to score in an all star game at Dyer Field that lost us a game....It don't get much worse than that....

As Buddy Ryan once said "you have a winner in town".....

Challenge accepted. How much. I don’t think you can do any of that. So tell me when and where and bring your cash. I don’t back down from any thing. I am sure you will come up with another lame weak excuse Oh can you post up’ penetrate pump In 31. Be in league leaders InTriple doubles be in league leaders in defensive stats.
I am sure you can. Hear you tell it. Here’s the deal I watcH more NBA in one night than you have watched all year

Next ridiculous comment “throwing accolades”. Lolololllll. You mean like rookie of year and an All Star in his second year. Those aren’t accolades they are facts. Is he drinking age yet?

I surely can go on but like i been taught never argue with a an idiot as they will pull you down to their level and beat you expertise.

Show me Pat. When and where. I accept your challenge. Pretend I am from Missouri and show me. Talk is Cheap
Keep on posting I love the proof. Stick to Ud hoops and I appreciate your obvious wisdom there.

And he has to beat the Celtics bucks? Man and all tHis time I thought it was a team sport.

So bring that sweet jumper you have and let me see it
Maybe the Sixers will hire you as a shooting Coach
Hear you tell it.

I got plenty more

On to Toronto after finishing off the hapless Nets. Toronto is a good match up for the 76ers if Embid is reasonably healthy. The 76ers are getting a big break maybe never having to face their nemesis, the Celtics.
