I realize it's almost impossible to stop Embiid in the post, but leaving your feet, as Time Lord did, is a cardinal sin.

Embiid is really tough to guard when the rules don't apply to him. I'm much less interested in watching a Philly game simply due to how Embiid is officiated; its horrible basketball.

Getting tired of Doris slobbering over Embiid ... okay, okay, he's good, we know that.

Her love affair with the entire Sixers team is a little puzzling. Yes, they're talented, but wake me when they do something big in the playoffs.

More evidence to support my contention: You can remove an opposing player's head and they won't call a foul if there's less than two seconds left in the first half.

I had to rewind to make sure I can count to 3 bc those travels were so obvious I am not sure how it is physically possible to not call them.

JB got fouled on his first shot then fouled again after he got the ball back....all right in front of the official.
Of course Doris didn’t say anything about those but had a stroke at Joel Embiid’s 3rd foul

Brad needs to figure out how to use TT.

The guy is lane clogging crap on offense, slow on the defensive perimeter, and challenges very little at the rim

I am curious what sort of game plan would lead to an effective use of a player who can't shoot from outside 6 feet, is slow, and a poor defender.

Bench-based cheer leader?

"He's getting really, really upset with the lack of calls" -- Doris Burke.

EDIT: Fuck off, Doris.

Embiid with an obvious offensive foul, complains about the no-call

Embiid might be the only non-criminal player in sports who when I say I hope he gets hurt I truly mean it.

I'm ok with Embiid's whining if it delays him getting back on defense.
He’s a great talent and often a great player but I simply do not see any reason to believe he’s ever going to be a key guy on a great team. He whines, he is emotional, his effort goes up and down and he is simply not in shape.

I think Morey is smart enough to know all this and have expected a deal
