Uh, yeah, as underlings.
You all right? We're chugging along.
You been with in the past month? Is that you in there? Look corny Job owner said that he should never, ever say again.
But this season Campbell, you say that Get a little but anyone to see this coming back in two weeks.
Um, born of what we talked about, Like directs in the Eastern Conference.
We have it Talk about the Sixers when wherever me said, who couldn't be the biggest to the Bucks.
It's always been either that he because of their size, the lake versatility and shooting or especially like the wing position for the Celtics because of pure talent.
Tatum Brown, Cambon Gordon Hayward Are the Sixers under the most pressure going? Gets the restart.
And also, by the way, the you don't know Shake Milton is going start at point guard.
Inter putting, then Simmons at the four spot.
I mean, they're the coach.
I'm not good are the six is under the most pressure going into the restart in the Eastern Conference.
That's clear by that because because yeah, generally, you'll probably the Lakers or the Clippers.
I got to say, Yeah, they were pretty much everyone's favorite coming into the year, even over the bucks, just because of not me? Actually, no, I said I said they could make some noise.
Um, I mean, because the Celtics have lost Kyrie and we didn't really know about how the young guys would rebound that for that.
They also lost Al Horford, who into the Sixers, which even amplified their chances.
Um, and then while Jimmy Butler left, he didn't go to another powerhouse.
We went to the heat, which were really under perceived in their talent level.
I think the Raptors were counted out because they lost Kawai.
The patients were counted out because all the depots hurt and the, um, the Bucks were just, you know, the bucks.
You know, you didn't really have a the confidence in the on issue, you know, he got stopped by by a Hawaiian in the playoffs, didn't really like what you saw, and they were in a weird spot, and I and I think the six years were on favorite to win.
The Julies represent the East in the finals, and if they don't do that and they get eliminated early.
It's a it's a terrible season for I mean, you're gonna You shouldn't see things shaken up either.
A star player getting moved.
Somebody getting, um, you know, somebody hadn't cut somebody getting fired.
Something happened in drastic.
If they, um, squander this season away in the Sixers, the Sixers do not perform in a decent left.
At the very least, breath Brad inspired.
Look, let's put that straight up.
Because with young players, the one coaching don't want is a coach that when they come in e drab young players for them and that same player after 23 years has developed.
Ben Simmons is the same player from 2 to 3 years ago when they drafted him or in his rookie year.
So tier of correct me if I'm wrong, he did win working here. Correct.
Hey, what working here? But he's the same again, hasn't got he hasn't.
In fact, he's gotten a little bit worse in terms.
What I like and you look at that, like working in the your ballot.
Mitchell's got in and at the very least, the same, but he's got it better, right? Sim IDs is the same player, if not worse.
And that's not make.
Maybe that's not a knock, because defensively, he said, he's a great player, but especially in the offense inside the boat, he still don't have a consistent jump shot, so that means he's a liability.
And these put playoff Siri's where we've seen literally last year with the Bucks that you can't shoot a casus tick 15 foot jumper.
What teams go to go pack it in in the six is already Tobias Harris like Miss Improvise hairs.
But I don't trust by Stairs to make a shot off the dribble, right, especially in the clutch.
Which is why Jimmy Butler leaving is such a big deal, right? Our corporate kit isn't like a reliable shooter.
Gramlich on my goddess out for Burt, right? Joel Embiid shouldn't even be out there enough.
So where he could be a constant threat, right? And Josh Richardson? That's not his game.
He is a three Andy player, and then there needs he's not a knockdown, catch and shoot guy that you wouldn't think up thinking of catching shoot wing defenders, right? And then, to your point, you know, I think some some people going to say, Well, the Honest and Ben Simmons are very similar players.
They both don't really have a jump shot.
They're both dominant paint, both grateful.
I'm more terrified of the Yonas jumper, the events in this.
But go ahead along, though, but here's the difference between a Me honest has a team designed around him where nobody else is in the paint.
He has wing shooters all around him, so it works for He's also bigger.
He's stronger, is more dominant in the pain, and he's even the honest who was a bit of a better player.
It had been Simmons own game is developing a jump shot to becoming a better player. He's shooting.
What I think 30 32% from three is not taking a lot of threes.
You still take King and knocking down about 1/3 of them.
So I mean, that doesn't tell Ben Simmons.
He needs to get better and take pride in his craft, and I don't know what will also also your Joel Embiid was falling out like crying after they lost to do the rapper's.
Whatever happened to that fire? Think they lose early again? Jolan be does that.
I mean, can you imagine the the headlines that come his way in the hate and the just so letting there's him letting people down? Who believed in him that, you know, this is Jolan be crying shows he has heart.
He's gonna come back even better next year and better in the playoffs.
And I feel like it's been kind of a down season just for the Sixers in general and specifically Joel Embiid and his rolled up in his home road splits.
And how often you sit on the court.
I just don't think it's a, um, a great great set up.
All right, Warner.
So the n B A hotline? Do you think it's petty? That's the next topic will be with my back by Not really.
We'll be right back.
