    Anyone else disappointed in Simmons this season?

    Sixers are lucky they have Embiid

    A little bit. He is about the same as last season when everyone thought he would naturally be improving at a fast rate. I think he will be a top 15 type player in the league rather than a top 5 type.

    Some Mormon fans after the game said embiid sucked, he said if they said it before the game he would have got 40

    Good to see the Spurs sneak into 8th seed after the worst season in 20+ years
    How good has Harden been lately though, dude is on fire

    Hope Kawhi enjoyed his homecoming today!

    I think Harden is a fantastic offensive player and he's fun to watch when he gets going, but man the foul calls he gets are ridiculous

    27 FTs the other day.

    What a joke.

    The league is so soft. Harden would have been destroyed if he played 25-35 years ago.

    Meanwhile how about the no call on Durant's out of bounds today.

    The NBA refs make the NRLs look great.

    For the first time since 2000/01 Vince Carter has a better PER rating than Dirk.

    I was lucky enough to go to a pre-season game in Philadelphia. Sat two rows behind the 6ers bench and paid $60 US, which i thought was incredible. That said - stadium was barely half full and you'd have to say the 6ers are in the top 3 most exciting teams at the moment

    Its a broader problem across US sports at the moment (perhaps NFL excluded). There was a game in Chicago last year when I was living in the US that only got 900 people. Game day tickets are so cheap in many cities...stubhub will literally give them away....

    I think he bottomed out and is now on an upswing. Throwing down triple dub threats every game and starting to get more confidence in the last quarter. That and his shoddy shooting are the only things holding him back from being a bonafide superstar

    Just looked up the box score. Looks like Simmons attempted his first 3 point shot in his NBA career. It missed. From what I can see he had gone 150 odd games without a 3 point shot.
