Good win really against Boston. Only watched highlights, but Embid in the high post is money. Worse case scenario from that situation is a mid range jump shot as teams dont want him to use his strength to bully his man and post up from the high post. That's Philly's closer play right there. I agree about Zhaire. Dont get why he isnt playing more. The bench shooting today was 6 for 19 overall. Actually think it could be worth turning Richardson into the 6th man as he doesnt seem to get many touches early in games when they go to Ben and Joel. Id start Zhaire or Mattise personally to give the bench more scoring as Richardson is a better playmaker than I anticipated. I know it probably wont happen, but if they start the year with a good record it would be worth trying out after ten games or so. The potential benefit would be a more balanced scoring effort across the game.team is good, big, thicc, and weird.
none of the contenders have anyone to go with embiid.
perimeter shooting is biggest concern. ben needs to be willing.
calling thybulle for first team all d.
doesn't seem likely but zhaire needs to be getting minutes, somewhere.
