Sarcasm? There were more benefits to tanking several years than drafting high. It allowed for development of undervalued players in an environment where playing time was bountiful. TJ has turned himself into a back up NBA point guard because the sixers had no desire to win and he could work on his game. He and Robert… Read more
What evidence do you have that Ben Simmons is an asshole? Is it just because he doesn’t care about other rookies?
Funnier when Big Cat did it.
I guess all I’m saying is just because you try doesn’t mean you should be pseudo lauded. The transparency of the sixers tanking shouldn’t have been seen as a detriment. I’m sure there are plenty of lakers fans that bought into what they sold. On the other side, the sixers were obvious and allowed people to choose… Read more
Hoping doesn’t make the goal any more attainable. There has to be argument for understanding where you are and what you can actually do. Once you acknowledge what your team i,s you can look to improve in the margins like finding good, sustainable role players. Also, it appears the sixers’ approach is working working… Read more
The sympathy for Jahlil Oakfor makes absolutley no sense. He would’ve have played if he could do, well, really anything outside of iso scoring in the low post. It became very obvious that he’s just not good enough and does not have the desire to change the way he plays but, I hope you’re happy that he’s free from the… Read more
I’ve never rolled my eyes harder at any internet comment. Wow.
That is very true. I’m not here to wave the flag in defense of misogyny I just want to point out that deadspin and barstool (and many of their readers) have a lot more in common than the new writers at deadspin want to admit. Dave Portnoy is an asshole. He’ll always be an asshole but to describe that company… Read more
That’s a fair point. My bad on that front. My point still stands about deadpsin in the AJ days though. Edgy and offensive content moves the needle and both deadspin and barstool are guilty of this. I just wanted to point out some hypocrisy I notice when deadspin ignores their history to grandstand against a growing… Read more
I mean, deadspin did post something that got them sued and put into bankruptcy so I’m not exactly sure how that’s not similar to some of the worst stuff barstool has posted. I will readily admit that Portnoy takes things to the extreme in a lot of instances but, that’s how he got here and I’d guess he’s not going to… Read more
Deadspin has a very similar background to barstool that these articles refuse to acknowledge. There are certainly some instances where barstool has continued to be pretty borderline on content, bringing up pieces written 3-5 years ago is pretty disingenuous when deadspin has plenty of that in their history. While you… Read more
I think you’d find that most sixers fans would be more disappointed that they released Emeka and not Jahlil.
Can someone explain to me how the Willy Mays over the shoulder catch is better than this? I understand it was impressive at the time, but can we stop putting what has become a routine catch on all time lists?
