I haven't I haven't done one of these in a few months.
I've been busy with school.
Um, we're working.
Ah, College College application here.
Got that in a few weeks ago for a Temple Temple University.
Hopefully again hear back soon Between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I haven't had a lot of time Thio do one of these streams, but I I just wanted to do one again and again.
Hockey has started.
I'll be trying to talk about those specifically the Flyers and the six years more and probably the Eagles.
Soon again, I did the week run picks on the Eagles there again, the five and four now trying to talk about them, Hue and the future down the road and get someone streams out when I can.
But I just wanted to talk about the Philadelphia 76 years so far.
My favorite basketball team.
They just got ah, sixth win of the season, defeating me.
Charlotte Hornets won 14 the 106 that's six and three so far.
They started off with a five record, and again it was again against teams that then I'm on that the greatest, except for the Celtics, of course, the opening night win.
But but most of those five went out.
Three or four of them were against teams that they should have begin end and in this Pasto road trip really gave him problems again.
They went one for three on the road trip out west, winning against Portland on a last second shot, a game that they could have lost a CZ.
Well, they lost against the Phoenix Suns.
They lost against the Utah Jazz game that Ben Simmons got hurt in, UM, they are so beat the They also lost to the Denver Nuggets.
It's on a Nicola Yokich shot flight eight night.
They beat the Hornets tonight as it starts in easier streak for them, coming up against six and sweet on the season.
I think that puts them at about 1/3 of fourth White now in the Eastern Conference.
My personal thoughts again.
Embiid suspended a few games, Um, about 34 games ago, the altercation with Call Anthony Towns that definitely heard us in a few games.
Big, uh, how Horford, I think, has taken on a very good leadership role for this team that I think it's overlooked.
And I think that was the one thing that going into the signing, that we are wondering what Whoa is our Horford going to play? Especially alongside Embiid doing the game, though, Try and, um, Nixon match both of them, I mean, have both of them on the field at the same time.
Sometimes also haven't beat on the floor.
Horford on the bench.
So and also is putting up points in the paint on the when m beads off the floor.
And I think that's the biggest thing in the leadership, Um, on the court, the again, the adult in the room, as as determined in sports says.
And I think that's That's definitely what he's taking on defense Sidley and offensively, and he's been very solid so far.
He's had had games up and down that big games that have kept the Sixers in the game and a few other games where either he wasn't given on up enough opportunities or just with some opportunity was just struggling, especially on certain games where he's trying to stretch out the range for the team and in a game where the rest of the guys aren't shooting very well and and is trying to do a a bit too much, and we see his numbers suffer a little bit from there.
But I think definitely he has proved to be a great pickup so far by the Sixers here through nine games, I'm also looking at Josh Richards in the other big pickup for the 70 Sixers in there again starting five, he is again.
The roller coaster kind of mix span says.
Well, a few gave again that he's put being put on the primary ball handler on the opposing team and um, has done a pretty solid job.
I think again, that was definitely a weak spot last year with J.
Um defensively and now tohave again.
All five guys be able to play solid defense.
Got any position? He's done it all like job with that, committing a bit more fouls than maybe I would like to.
Or maybe other fans would like to.
But he is producing on the offensive side, and he's getting to the hole he is shooting.
I think a bit more threes, but I think again that's also coming with This team needs guys to step up and shoot the walk.
So again, I think that that's just going to come with time.
He's gonna knocked a He's knocking down his shots Now again, I have no, no real huge problem with it.
It's just again was more of an attack.
The whim guy with Miami more day paying a attack in the whim with Miami.
More so than a shooter? Um uh e.
But he can shoot the three effectively, and and that's gonna be huge for the team again.
Has has a lot of shooters again.
And again, this is a huge problem.
A huge Parliament was coming into the year, and that was That's the bench points in again.
First few games of the year.
1st 34 games through the year.
The bench wasn't stepping up the way it should.
But now I think that that it's it's getting better and the guys are starting to establish their roles so far.
He on the bench, Um, **** on Cork, Mass.
He has Wheeling impressed me so far.
For the 76 years I mean, averaging 8.
Could game he put just produced 17 points tonight against the Hornets.
It he can do that consistently.
If he can consistently be able to do that naion on night out, I would that I think that could solve the problem if he can be able to come off the bench, and I'm going to get to this here in a few minutes.
If he can consistently come off the bench and be able to put up 10 15 points a night, I mean that. That's solid.
And that'll get the West of the guy's going off the bench and be able to supplement the first group.
A question When you got a starting five of Ben Simmons when he gets back healthy here, Josh Richard sent a bias.
Harris, Al Horford, Jowell and Bead.
You've gotta have the bench production of Back It up.
And for Goncourt Mai's ah, guy, you again kind of under the weight.
All, of course, coming into this year, you all for coming into this season so fug.
And when you're thinking of guys like Mike Scott, James Ennis, Trey Burke while Netto they've been playing well, I'll get to them as well.
But for Con Kuchma's the past 345 games, really stepping into a Big Wall being a number one guy.
It's all about consistency, though, and that's when he needs to prove if he can continue, I'm gonna kind of base it on a 10 to 50 team game, even 20 game stretch with him.
If he can consistently be ableto play 20 solid minutes, give him a solid 10 15 points off the bench.
Be ableto play with the first Unit B, be ableto hat, get open, get the open shots and be a key shooter on this team.
That again, another problem coming in was going to be the shooting.
That would be huge and really, I think, could put the Sixers over the top moving forward later on in the season.
And again, again, I was going to say, I'm talking more about the bench, in my opinion, the 1st 2 guys at the 76 years to bring off the bench every game should be court months who had just mentioned again can come in, play with the starting unit and get buckets as we seem so full again, consistency is going to be in question.
And number two Matisse Bible now Matisse Bible.
He hasn't been claimed.
The past two games.
I don't know if that's wet.
Brown having him sit, sit down, watch watch from the bench again.
He's been in some foul trouble.
34 fouls the past four or five games.
Hasn't been very efficient offensively, but But he is a defensive monster and continue is the effort for nearly a week and 1/2 2 weeks now reading the association and steals total steals and steals per game.
So you've got to still get him in there.
Yes, he has offensive deficiencies so far, but that will come with time coming with shot selection coming with being able to knock down the shots when he's open again.
But when you have a very talented young defendant, you can't have him on the bench.
Beast it, sitting there and not getting a lot of minutes.
So I think, yeah, maybe a few games here.
What? Brown just wanted to sit him down.
But, I mean, those guys give you should they give you length? Cork Miles gives you shooting five boys.
He he's hit a few.
He's hasn't again.
Got it fully down.
They give you shooting athleticism.
They can God 1 to 5 again.
You can put Sybil on the the better defend the better offensive guy there on the bench or good starting shooter or a ball handler on the opposing team.
If they can come in there, make an impact, you can throw in guys like Scott and Burke.
I think this team could move forward very efficiently with again, sitting the way the wet Brown has instilled, which is the wing game shooting.
And, of course, defense.
And both of those guys can come in off the bench and do that.
And I think that over time that might, we might see that be instilled more for the team as again by Go and Quark Ma's first guys coming off the bench well again have to see what what's up vibe or reason? Why hasn't been playing the past few games that I mentioned earlier again going back to the bench.
TWE Burke and, well, Netto, Now O Netto has been starting the past few games.
Now, two to be exact with Ben Simmons with the A C joint sprain been starting the past year.
Games I do like is his game.
This game fits the scheme meanies is not again the knockdown shooter that trade Berg is.
But he can work the pick and roll well without Horford and the other big man, Embiid, O'Quinn, off the bench, Work the pick and war.
Find a spot again.
Not a knockdown shooter, but he will hit his shots when he is open.
So I think that he will.
He will get in minutes.
I think again what? Brown loves him a bit.
So yeah, I think that, um, Trey Burke, I lie.
I put for the simple fact that if
