What’s wrong with our getting Simmons from the Magic?

Didn’t he have 10 shots yesterday? Score 143 and he only got 10 shots? Can’t see him being ok with that long term

Yet another test of the 76ers early playoff alert comes tomorrow.

Bold prediction.

I have no idea what will happen.

I think they need to pitch it to these guys that they are saving them for the playoffs. Jimmy already has a ton of miles and if they can manage his minutes I'd have to think he would prefer that vs the Thibs approach.

If they come to Jimmy and say we plan to give you a max contract, and you are on a winning team, do his stats really matter as much at that point? He is getting his last huge paycheck and has a chance to win. For some guys that is more than enough, for others they want the stats instead of winning.

Feel like the winning angle is always ignored re: Butler's past. He's shown how badly he wants to win, and IMO a lot of the "selfishness" could have stemmed from not trusting that his teammates were able to get it done (which, yeah). That's clearly not going to be an issue with this lineup.

Ramona 'Lakers Propagandist' Shelbourne says Elton called Magic to apologise for insinuating that the Lakers called about Simmons 'unprompted'. This story is so #$!&@ stupid.

Lol.

The issue is that her idol Magic blabbed about it in the press conference and caused this whole stupid thing.

Guessing he didn't apologize for that.

Haha the Sixers got Dei Lynam in the mix "Sixers did not contact Pelinka - Ben Simmons’ brother did and he is who Ben does his off season stuff with"
