    But, if all PHi asked for was Knox, IQ, Toppin and 2 of our top 3 picks this draft…. I couldn’t say no.
    It’s that 30+ million contract that scares me most of all. Simmons is making 40 million in 2024-25. That is a potential franchise killer over the next 4 seasons unless he learns to shoot. You could almost argue assets should be going out from Philly, not coming in, to move him.

    As an aside, I think IQ is untouchable. His game is mini-Trae Young with the extended 3 point range, ability to draw fouls, very high FT percentage, and developing runner in the lane. He needs to develop his court vision and grow as a passer and he is a starter in this league, maybe a very good one, for a long time.

    2021 Draft order:
    1. Detroit
    2. Houston
    3. Cleveland
    4. Toronto
    5. Orlando

    Cade to Detroit? My sympathies to the young man.

    Orlando picks 5th and 8th. Be interesting to see if they try to package and trade up to top 3 or if they are a target for another team to trade up to one of their top 8 picks.

    Clippers Paul George chokes and misses 2 FTs in the final seconds that allows the Suns to make an alley oop putback by Ayton off their inbounds to give them a 1 pt win. Great pinpoint pass by Crowder to Ayton that he just had to guide in make the bucket. They often ask who you would want to take the last shot to win the game, I would not want Melo or George to take that shot. Clips are not coming back from a 0-2 hole without Kawhi.

    Atlanta just keeps on winning. 3 wins away from an Eastern Conference championship.

    Trae with another incredible game. Hard to believe the 2 best players in that draft got traded for each other. Though I think if DAL had Trae they would have advanced to the 2nd round.

    When he came into the league I said he’s one of the guys I’d pay money to see play. He hasn’t disappointed anyone esp. ATL fans.

    I kind of had that feeling, more of a wishful thinking…. That the winner of ATL/NYK would have a nice run in them

    Part of this was believing the injuries were leveling the playing field, and both were quality “teams” with chemistry that could defend.

    Ignite a Young or Randle, get help from their role playing friends. Defend. Stay in it and fight the full 48.

    Just incredible. Could be ATL - PHO Finals.

    Rick Carlisle hired as Indiana Pacers head coach. His 2nd stint with the team.

    Apparently, Carlisle said that Dallas should hire Jason Kidd because he would go well with Doncic. This is now the 2nd team where someone has publicly said they should hire Kidd. Kidd said no to Portland. I wonder if he wants Dallas at all.

    Wow .. I thought Carlisle was headed to Boston .. Good luck in Indiana lol
    Cuba cussed-out Kidd every which way when Kidd signed on to the Knicks in 2012.
    Kidd saying no to Portland .. and Carlisle mentioning Kidd should replace him in Dallas .. Plus Lebron changing numbers, may also want to change assistant-coach to head-coach this offseason.

    After trailing most of the game, Bucks steamroll Hawks in the 4th quarter. I think Atlanta’s impressive run is coming to a close.
