You’ll be here until the Celts lose and then disappear.

Can’t have been too bad if I had you tailing my bets on occasion. I didn’t realise I had to post every single bet I made before hitting the “confirm bet” button?

Um, you’re talking about tipping, not punting. You do realise there’s a difference?

You’re the only one who’s done the disappearing act because your ego flog ways didn't fly....that & you were a sh*t punter.

Me tail you? lol Not while my arse points to the ground have/will/ever, but given it’s been years since you’ve shown your ugly mug, I guess you can make up whatever stories you like. Comical nonetheless.

Watching this nets team play ball. wondering what harden will look like in brooklyn white
We're both fans of the Nets' retro blue threads.

Unfortunately we've already established that Jim Harden's silhouette and baby blue uniforms aren't working well together right now.

Holy sh*t rockets got screwed
It's all based on what the picks and swaps end up being. They didn't get a young star but it seemed Simmons was their only chance there.

Dipo they get a look at and drop further salary as part of a rebuild.

Likely move Tucker and Gordon for expiring too and suddenly have some cap space and a youngish team plus Wall.

Stephen A Smith seems to think that the Rockets owner was never willing to trade Harden to Philly because of Daryl Morey.i do not agree with that (think they would have done it if the Sixers threw in Maxey along with Simmons) but it does seem like there was a lot more hostility with Morey's departure from Houston than wet thought.

Anyhow Philly were right not to trade Maxey, he has future all star material written all over him (in my opinion)

I believe morey when he says ( a lot) he wants to build around simmons and embiid.

Makes sense cause they are youngish good players and look promising with shooters around then

Just not at Philly.

I am in the camp you trade either Embiid or Simmons if, and only if, Philly get an offer too good to refuse.

Simmons really needs to work on his shooting game and work ethic, a few commentators I follow on Twitter suggest part of his problem is that he is too lazy/does not work hard enough at training etc

He is a good player, but is not developing or improving his game at the same rate as others of his draft class like Jaylen Brown or Brandon Ingram.
