    Hot take: Having an old school hard ass coach (Carlisle) when you have a savant at PG isn’t the way to go in the modern NBA. Overall team morale looks at an absurdly higher level

    Isn’t Kidd, by many accounts, just a little less old school hard ass coach? Not doubting the morale but he comes off a quite an asshole according to many

    Carlisle had run his course especially re Luka but man you’re making a lot of assumptions on Kidd I feel like

    He’s been broken of those habits, if not, Luka will Rocky 4 him. (VS Creed, not Rocky)

    Kidd should know he’s second fiddle in the relation re: Luka, we’ll see if he’s learned from his past though

    We’ve onlly had 2 draft picks since we got Luka & Brunson in 2018, and they are… not good. He showed out tonight, so hopefully he’ll be on the active roster over Tyrell Terry, who missed 80% of last season for personal reasons, and has missed most of this training camp for the same.

    Bones Hyland hasn't played an NBA game yet, but is already disrespected and underrated. Feels like a new record.

    I thought Bones looked like a young Trae Young in that video. Good looking player.

    What exactly is this "resolution"? Philly called Simmons' bluff, and now he wants to get paid. He can't get paid unless he's there. So he's coming back. What is there to negotiate? The money he gave up by not showing up?

    Maybe this works out for both parties or perhaps it’s one sided and very favorable to Simmons. But up to this point, I think Rich Paul looks pretty bad in how he’s chosen to handle this situation.

    They could’ve had Simmons show up and keep it on the DL that Ben demanded a trade.
