  1. That almost sounds like too much at this point imo. I remember when Artest started acting..... "different". And there was a sense that you never really knew what was going to happen next with that guy. It just kind of feels the same way for Simmons and, oh yeah, you're still on the hook for a guaranteed $150M. I think his play on the courts is better than most people seem to think it is, but Ron Artest was amazing early in his career as well. Would it really shock anyone if Simmons suddenly started having mysterious injuries and never got back to the level of play that he was being criticized for? He just seems over it and doesn't even care what people think. With the contracts in the NBA... can anyone PROVE that he doesn't have back soreness for YEARS?
  2. And don't forget the Barkley deal. They waited so long they ended up getting Hornacek, Lang, and Perry in return. This was even worse because they hadn't made much noise in the playoffs since 84'/85' when Moses was still the leader of the team. At least the roster last year entered the playoffs as the #1 seed in the east. I think it was much more likely going into last season that Simmons would develop a 16' jump shot than the last several months would have unfolded like they have. Nobody could have seen all of this coming. Parts, maybe. But generally you don't see well payed guys on a #1 seed turn completely toxic. If they keep this going until December I'll be surprised if they even have home court advantage in any round of the playoffs. It's addition by subtraction even if they just get picks at this point.
  3. I was shocked I made it through this week as well, and that's after it took Mark Andrews last minute heroics just to keep me in the contest last week. Bridgewater as my only QB with Russell Wilson still on the shelf. $80 worth of RB getting "0". On a points/$ basis AJ Green has been carrying my team on his back. AJ, just keep pulling my lifeless corpse through another few rounds and I'll get that bronco "funny-money" to you well after you have spent your $5 salary...... john elway style.
  4. But that was a situation where the team wanted to trade the player, as an assurance he doesn't get injured before getting traded. At least at the moment the Sixers are pretending that they don't want(need?) to trade the player. There is no immanent trade if you believe how PHI is playing this.
  5. Too little too late? It's pretty easy to throw a fit when that is the last option available to you. It would be fascinating to hear the REAL offers they got for Simmons over the summer. I think many(though certainly not all) would be shocked at how much lower the actual offers were than the offers that have obviously been leaked to the press.... and not leaked by the teams making the offers.
  6. Seems to me it has been explicity explained to him every step along the way what would happen if he refused to get vaccinated and he made a decision. The team doesn't even talk about it as a situation in flux, they talk about the decision in the past tense. I guess we'll see.
  7. I'm surprised that they are 8-1 right now in a soft Eastern conference. Are Nets/Sixers any better than last year? The only odds I like better than MIL might be MIA @ 26 -1, but I have a weakness for longshots.
  8. This is very true, but it happens overnight very rarely. That's why I think SAC/MIN type teams make the most sense. It's entirely possible that by the end of his contract he might be worth the $, but he's not worth the money now. And teams like PHI/GS/POR are in a window of opportunity right now and probably don't want to wait around and see if he will change/mature.
