Sweet! The Nets are weaker and Harden will ruin the 76ers. I'm calling Heat or Bucks for the East.

Kyrie is skipping to CVS as we speak.

Ben Simmons without any pressure? Where he can just be the magical defensive unicorn that he is?

Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit

James Harden has also, ya know, kinda sucked this year. He's shooting 42%, 33% from the field, averaging 5 turnovers.

Philly's baking a lot on the idea that he's just unhappy and not, ya know, toast.

What kind of shape is Simmons in?

I assume it takes him a couple weeks to get up to game speed,

i can't imagine possibly being that tall. it's absurd.

I understand the skepticism about Harden at this age in Philly. We'll see.

But I cannot wait for everyone predicting a Simmons renaissance in Brooklyn to see what happens in the playoffs.

And I'm sure the New York sports media will go very easy on him!

I fully support rooting for the trade to be a disaster for both teams.

it's the Nets.

if he was going to the Knicks, i'd be there with you.

nobody cares about the Nets. Including the media.

LOL yes.

But also, Simmons does not to play the same role in the playoffs at all. They have KD and Kyrie (for away games). I think this trade fits their roster quite well, even before you think of the alternative of Harden playing that level of defense.

I loved watching Harden last year, as he was possibly the best PG in the league for a while. But his offense has declined significantly at this point, which turns him into a very good player as opposed to MVP candidate.

Simmons-Kyrie-Seth-KD-Claxton/Griffin/Drummond is a pretty good, complementary lineup. They are also deeper now, with Harris becoming a bench player when healthy.They probably regret trading Allen, but what can you do.

The 76ers got better too, I think. Win-win trade.

LOL @ the Porzingis trade. Think Dallas regrets getting him from the Knicks?

exactly.

his issues with not wanting to shoot aren't as relevant with KD and Kyrie on the floor.

and i'd put good money (if i was allowed to bet on such things) on Kyrie somehow being able to play home games come playoff time.
