If we don't get a top three FA in the offseason, there is no way we compete with BOS.

A gritty loss. Showed heart.

But as a coach, it is beyond my comprehension how Brown doesn't force Embiid on the block late in that game.

We are in the bonus, their bigs are in foul trouble, and nimnuts is doing his best Spencer Hawes impersonation. And our fucking coach allows him to do it, time and time again.

And the next time Embiid has a week between getting cleared for concussion and getting the ok for his orbital, can you run him to get him in shape so we don't have to watch the opposing team go on a big 4th Quarter run because Embiid the three point sharp shooter is out of fucking shape.

A real good year, but a frustrating lack of basketball common sense in this series and especially in this game.

I was okay with keeping the ball out of his hands late. If he gets the ball and moves immediately, he's a young Hakeem. When he starts thinking and dribbling, he's as likely to dribble off his foot as put up a good shot.

This series was frustrating, but it was also the first look at what this team can/will be. The Sixers are the 2016 Eagles with a better start. Pieces in place for the most part, just need to seal some gaps. Overall, a good season.

Now, if Fultz can remember how to play basketball, and Ben finds a shot, this team is scary.

Based on what? The last 4 games, where we competed with Boston? An experienced team with our talent kills Boston. Now we can watch the Cavs spank them.

My wish list for this offseason:

1. Embiid to develop a back-to-the-basket post game.
2. Simmons to develop a mid-range shot.
3. Trade for Leonard or sign Paul George.

As a bonus maybe Brett Brown gets hit on the head and goes back to the 90's Spurs offense where they actually used their dominant post player in the post.

Stop being so damn reasonable.

As I pointed earlier, look at some of our Pederson rants in Nov/Dec 2016. This whole board was ready to can him.

I'm a big Kawhi fan, but I'd much rather sign a FA than trade for someone. I don't want to dismantle the young core we have. Especially with all the Kumbaya stuff from the locker room after game 5. I want to see what this team can really do first. And I have pretty high expectations for this team based on what I've seen from this year.
