This triple OT game is going to end Embiidís season. 

His back is clearly killing him.
im watching this. its about to enter quadruple overtime and theyre still playing embiid, he can barely move because his back hurts. what an incompetent organization the 76ers are

Um, it is a report from Woj in which he says the league pushed back the high school kids a year in part because of the trade for that draft pick.  If Woj is right, it is an absolute bush league move by the league.

The league pushed it back to 2022 but had never fully committed to 2021, as there were a lot of things that needed to happen. The league had to get the players to approve it. The league needed to set standards for which players could go straight to the draft. They had to coordinate things with USA Basketball. They had to change things with the G League.

And, they said originally they wanted to do things farther into the future so that no traded picks we're involved in that first year yet. Philly knew this but took a chance they might be able to get a pick in that year anyway. If it wasn't Philly for that traded for that pick and it was someone else, the league still would have pushed it back. If other teams traded for other 1st round picks in 2021, the league would still have pushed it to 2022.

Philly gambled and they lost. The league isn't changing it just because it's specifically Philly that traded for that pick. They would have done it if it was any other team. The league let it be known ahead of time that they didn't want traded picks to be a part of the 1st year of high schoolers coming in but Philly made the trade anyway. So their gamble failed.

And, they had a bunch of other reasons to push it back as well.

Philly is just acting like the paranoid team and fanbase they have been for years.

I agree. I like a lot of the liberty ballers content, and think they have some objection things on there. That article, however, was an embarrassment.

They are just desperate, because several things are not going their way:

1. They didn't get Lebron, George, Butler, or Kawhi in a year when they thought they'd be the most attractive team for free agents or pre-free agents.
2. Fultz doesn't look like the All-star they hoped he would be.
3. They traded Tatum and a draft pick to give their biggest rival a huge advantage.
4. They are apparently not the 1st or 2nd best team in the East. They may not even by the 3rd (Bucks), and the gap between them and the 4th and 5th (Pacers and Wizards) may not be that big.
5. Their front office has been a joke in recent years.
6. Brent Brown looks like a good coach, but he also looks outmatched against the top coaches.
7. Their roster is completely unbalanced and in need of perimeter-oriented scoring. They also can't seem to make the necessary trade to make that happen. Covington, Saric, and Simmons all play the same position.
8. They have a constant low-simmer of fear that Embiid will get injured.
9. A lot of Sixer fans really like Holmes, who they traded for nothing.

Anyway. It's not surprising that they are lashing out and taking the victim mindset.
Most talent in the league. We don't want or need AD.

Weird Celtics Twitter (it's a very real and wonderful thing) calls the Sixers fanbase "Infowars Twitter" for this exact same reason lol.


They're in a weird place as a team - some great draft luck and good picks have put them in a place where contention is reasonable to expect, but some terrible picks and moves have made it so their window may be a lot narrower than it could be. They're dangerously close to having Embiid + Simmons and even overpriced rookie deals ($10 million for Year 3 of Fultz, $13 for Year 4) chewing up most of their cap and not having much left to fill in the gaps. And they went through like a half-decade of atrocious ball to get there. I understand why the fan base is kinda in a state of giddy paranoid anxiety.

lol. Imagine how good they would be if they had not blown picks on Noel and Okafor.

Becoming abundantly clear the Sixers blew it by not including Fultz and acting quickly on acquiring Leonard.  Leonard looks awesome and has Toronto rolling while the Sixers are puttering along.

If Philly really could've gotten Leonard by including Fultz (I know there were reports) they definitely blew it, especially after PG13 signed in OKC.  If you believe in Fultz, I think Fultz-Saric is more compelling than DeRozan-Poetl.  I don't really think a ton of RC at 16m a year.
Give us this pick, Almighty Red
And forgive us our tanking
As we forgive those who tanked against us
And lead us not into the lottery
But deliver us from losing
