    Theres a reason Damon Jones isn’t coaching anymore he’s an idiot.

    Why is this a question. If you think Ben Simmons is better than Joel Embiid than you shouldn’t be allowed to talk basketball. Embiid is a top 10 player in the league

    Embiid literally averaged 28 a game with 13.5 boards and 2 blocks a game last season. This is crazy how after 4 games the media does this.

    2 different players in their own way…best in their own position imo.
    Just like there was no dispute in who was greater between Kobe and Shaq
    while they played together.
    What they both share in common, I think, is that they are both foreign players,
    whom often were questioned about their lack of will to win / dominate.
    But given how young both of em still are (25/22), I think the future is still brighter
    in sixers.

    Do not trust the process

    They still play better with Ben out
    And embiid on the floor

    Simmons could average 22 10 10 in a good system

  9. Terence Butler

    If the Sixers choose Embid over Simmons they will be back to trusting the PROCESS!!!

    Brown is just bad, not the talents. When Embiid is in the post, put Simmons in the corner to practice his 3; Embiid and Simmons Pick n Roll, Handoffs should be done every time down the floor to limit clogging the paint. Stop using Simmons as a screen setter and Embiid in the high post dribbling the ball, those are not their main strengths.

    Shaq in LA and Hakeem before him are the last time a chip was won with a center as the #1 option.

    Sixers have 2 problems Simmons refuses to shoot and Embid refuses to void the zone.

    Shaq in 2001 , dirk a Pf bt is 7’0 2011 ,Tim Duncan 2014 , just to name a few the big man isn’t going extinct it’s evolving

    Damon Jones should be coach of the Knicks

  16. Gulitz Tse

    February 11, 2020 at 6:50 am

    i think results sometimes give answers lol. 5 game win streak without embiid. 4 game losing streak with embiid

    I don’t really care for the 76ers is general but I’d take Simmons over Embiid. At least Simmons actually tries and puts in effort. The game vs the Bucks says it all about Embiid’s lack of even trying.

    Embiid leaves and goes to Miami, both teams will be better but the 6ers and Simmons would catch an L from Jimmy and Joel it’d be great

    Undisputed’s bench cast is better than first take’s bench cast

    It’s Simmons. Embiid has to go, Simmons is the one the Sixers need to keep a 6’10 PG isn’t something that comes along every year.

  21. Joshua LeFranc

    February 12, 2020 at 8:09 am

    One has to go. There’s no debating that. Preferably Embiid

    Simmons is just piece of trash that philly should get rid of him as soon as possible
    Embiid? might be, at lease he tries
    Simmons without shooting?he doesnt even try to shoot. unless philly wants a team that just around in playoff time not chasing champ
    Simmons will never lead his team to the final
    hes not only bad….he doesnt even try…..neither 3s nor mid range
    ya Embiid easily get hurt, play 50ish game a year…..just like kawhi…..or players nowadays do….

    You don’t trad either of them.. You people are crazy!! They need each other to win a title.

  24. Steve Irwin

    Simmons is easily their best player

    Embiid and Simmons together are the best duo. its just my personal opinion
