I donít know if this is doc, the one on one nature of Embid and harden, but 76ers offense just looks kind of clunky to me.

Any offense with Embiid will look clunky. Too much slow down post play. Too little player movement leading to lack of ball movement. Too little passing from Embiid.

He still struggles to make his teammates better on offense despite all the attention he commands because he stagnates the offense (hurts ball movement, clogs paint).

It would be cool to see Embiid have a Wilt Chamberlain-like evolution where Embiid transitions from being an individual dominator (Wilt 1st 7yrs leading league in scoring) to an offensive & defensive facilitator / playmaker (Wilt 1st title 20pts 20reb 7-8ast per game).

Philly would be a much better team if Embiid allowed their team's offense to orientate around Harden, Maxey & Tobias. Like Duncan did with Manu and Parker in 2007-2010. That is what those players do best (score, offense). Embid should concentrate on making them the best versions of themselves instead of making them inferior subservient versions who function to feed him.

Imagine the ball movement that team could have with Embiid in a facilitator role off the elbows and in PnR instead of isos and post ups with those three dynamic ball-handlers, scorers, shooters, passers. That team could be a nightmare.

Agree, he still really struggles to make fairly simple reads out of his double-teaming in the post (which happens a lot). He hasn't turned it over too much tonight, as the Bucks double him less than we do, but he still struggles majorly to make good reads.

I don't like the makeup of the team though. I feel like both Harris and Maxey are best suited to #3 type offensive roles, and obviously one of them cannot be that in lineups with Harden & Embiid. Tucker was a weird addition too.

The big question is who wants to listen to Stan drone on?

The answer to that would be Stan.

Wow sixers fans just booed Embid after a miss and have been booing the team in general. They also have 59 points near end of third.

Sixers making our opening night win look a little less impressive.

The Bucks are our biggest challenge in the East again this year.

opening night still looked impressive.  we didn't stumble out of the gate with a loss and we didn't fall apart in the 3rd/4th quarter like we would do last year. 

if Philly loses several early games against lesser teams to start the season, then the 'impressiveness' of the win may be reconsidered.  them losing to us and the Bucks in their first 2 games would be expected by anyone that's not a Philly fan or one of the ESPN experts that predicted Philly would be playing in the ECF instead of the C's

We may have provided a jinx here unfortunately. Tie game now. 13-0 run.
