    Is it my imagination or does Markelle Fultz look a little doughy?

    OK, I'm just going to admit this and I mean no offense and I'm truly not being a smartass...but I first thought that was Jemele Hill.

    Even worse was Rajon Rondo making the game-winner.

    Good to see Caris LeVert back. When he got hurt, I definitely had the over on his return date.

    Seems to be a fan favorite in Brooklyn.

    I'm sure Magic just wants to help a young guy for the health of the league right?

    Simmons reached out to Magic. Magic said if everyone signs off on it, sure. Not sure how he's a bad guy here.

    He is a bad guy because someone with any integrity would have politely declined saying that it would be inappropriate. Period. Some bullshit about if everyone else says its OK is more passive/aggressive slimy behavior which now makes the Sixers the bad guy. Magic is a scumbag. If Silver had any balls he would come down hard on Magic, but since he doesn't he won't.

    Aren't the league's tampering rules such that if you even mention wanting to play for another team or wanting a player from another team you get fined? Anthony Davis got fined $100,000 because his agent said he wanted a trade.
    So how are Magic and Lonzo Ball (via LaVar Ball's comments about the Suns) not paying out the ass right now?

    Oh, for fuck's sake. Magic is the greatest point guard of all time, and given their height is probably the most analogous player for Simmons to emulate. Simmons approached Magic to work with him in the off-season. Magic says "If the Sixers, Lakers and the league all sign off on it, sure." Seems like a perfectly reasonable response to me, and I doubt it will happen.
