    His body language looks bad. Think he might be banged up.It happens. With all the other injuries it's reasonable that he is playing even though he's hurt more then he let's on.

    I'm sad about Kobe, i heard it on the golf course. I went to dinner instead of watching the Magic. Expected the loss...nuff said. I will be watching the Heat game tonight.No matter how bleak the season gets it's always fun to when the boys play the Heat.I want the team to win, it's possible the looming trade deadline is affecting their game. I feel like this happened last year.They seemed to turn it on right after the deadline. Anyhow gonna stick to redditt and Sb Nation until the deadline.They seem to understand the situation better, while still being fans.

    I kinda wish we would have traded for Clarkson last spring like i suggested. Now he is doing well in Utah.Reading the last few pages, at least people aren't debating why we need a change.That is what started the Fultz argument. We need change, there hasn't been enough change the last 3 years.The argument wasn't about Fultz it was about management making a move.It's still a great move but was it enough.

    What your delusional. Not going to defend this stuff anymore. It seems many other members remember it the exact same as i. It was a pick an armchair Gm could have made using other peoples scouting reports.I thought these guys were better.

    Even looking back in hindsight, Isaac pick was easy, go look at the players in the top 15. Fultz trade went to the last minute because Philly was offered nothing.Kinda of made us feel good until we all realized he wasn't going to play last year.The Bamba pick, that was the one to show us something. Everyone had us picking Bamba, another developmental player(just like Isaac). We already had a center and two highly drafted forwards. I know people will bring up a team without a star should draft Best Player Available. B.P.A. Was Bamba really that guy? He is another draft magazine player, who people said had great potential. I want our scouts to go out and find real gems. Not just draft a guy who is the biggest and longest.He looks like he can't even play basketball sometimes.And considering our franchise just dealt with Biyombo, it's no wonder our fans immediatley noticed how bad he looked.

    Agree, Isaac was an easy pick and the point guards in that draft looked like trash at the time. Simmons for Fultz was also easy.Everything points to Philly only wanting a player who was non guaranteed.Everyone had us picking Bamba as well. Literally like every mock.There was more variance on who would pick Doncic and Trea. Meanwhile many non star players have moved around the league the last two years.Bertans,Oubre,Randle,Jabari,Tj warren,Morris brothers,Randle,Bullock,Prince,Schroder,Clarkson,Bogdonovic,Taj,Dunn,Wright,Curry,Bogdon,................seriously i could go on and on. Most of the lesser players moved the last two years we could have been in on, easily. Don't talk to me about cap space, we had some options.My god in almost 8 years Fultz is the only player from another team we acquired as a developmental player who might fit better with us.Not counting the original trades for Tobias and Evan. Sorry for the format, not sure why i can't fix it....lol

    Trade Bamba and Evan. Nuff said. I don't care what others on this board think. I watch basketball. Evan is a good player who deserves to be the 3rd or 4th best player on another team.Bamba is fools gold, trade him to whoever else thinks he is good.

    Well here is the good news. Gordon's and Vucevic"s contracts were made to trade them.They are highly tradeable and probably will be at some point. Just not right now. Nothing wrong with trying to get something for Dj and Evan. I half agree with 4thewin, there is no need to trade now, except teams get desperate.

    Yeah i'm sorry, that's what i meant. It was the 3 of them not in it together. Set us back 5 years.Then the two years afterwards we truly looked like one of the worst teams in the league. The bad thing was we were trying to win!

    Does losing Evan without having a chance to get something back count?

    LOL! He has already taken and made more 3's then Ben Simmons.

    What? Not even going to argue this but Henny's pride over that pick was the real downfall of his regime.Couple that with the power struggle with Skiles and he was doomed. Should have let him go the minute Skiles quit.

    If you mean Morgan that guy will say anything. Of course we know the front office screwed with Hennigan. The whole Dipo thing was his revenge but he was still an idiot. The minute he was fleeced in the Elfrid trade he spent the next 3 years trying to justify it by never getting a real point guard. Everything started with that, the Skiles hiring and his leaving too.
