Hard to believe we've gotten through an 82 game season. I think the NBA season is my favorite sports' season to follow. The NFL is more frenetic and intense, it's only 18 weeks so it's not long enough to sit back and enjoy.

Bel, how much of a threat do we see the Nets next week?

Dinwiddle is going to be a pain in the ass like he was a few years ago I think.

There's always the athleticism issue but the 76ers have the advantage. They have no answer for Embiid, obviously, but they shouldn't take them lightly.

Really impressed with the bench in these last 2 games. Performed much, much better than I anticipated.

I'd like to see more of this kind of offense with the starters. More ball and player movement.

I think its ECF or maybe even Finals or else for Morey/Doc/Harden/Harris. I don't want to say Embiid but you never know and he should do what's best for him.

Really not impressed with what Morey has done. Backup C and bench has been the crutch for how many years now? Last couple games notwithstanding, both are still weaknesses.

Rivers -we all have too many examples during the season and playoffs.

Harden - don't really know but included him b/c he's become mercurial. he's not been asked do anything other than distribute. why would he leave? would he leave if pieces around him left?

Harris - i've wanted him gone for years.

it'll be an interesting playoffs for sure. assuming they get past the Nets, will be their toughest 2nd round opponent yet.

God only knows.

Sixers have to make some tough choices this offseason. Do you, again retool around Embiid, or blow it up, and start over with Maxey?

It's been what? Six years and they have tried just about every combination of players in this leauge with Embiid, and they still can't get past round 2.

Vested too much time and energy into Ben Simmons and that bit them in the butt. Giving Harris that contract killed them too. Don't ge tme wrong. we all wanted it to work. It just didn't.

Is it Doc? I am sure he is to blame as well.

You see the hustle the young kids have yet they (and the rest of the bench) can't hold the fort down in a game while Embiid and Harden rest.
