We welcome Noah Levick to this episode to talk about the Sixers with us. There are two games that we have recapitulated, as well as other topics related to the Philadelphia 76ers that are sure to capture your interest.
We begin by reviewing the victory in Toronto. Against another team that lacked key starters in their lineup, the Sixers went about business in the usual dramatic fashion. Noah Levick, Christopher Kline and Uriah Young discuss the huge role Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris played as the game got tight at the end. We also bring up other Sixers who struggled to shoot, in addition to other key aspects of the performance.
The second game we recap is the other recent road win over the Washington Wizards. Joel Embiid was a monster in this game, where no one could contain the big man All-Star. We break down the important moments of the game and the main contributors in defense and attack. We even immerse ourselves in the ejection of Montrezl Harrell and how Joel Embiid is so good at trolling his opponents.
Doc Rivers recently turned defensive when asked about the Sixers’ inconsistency against lesser opponents. We dive into his questionable media tactics, as well as the new rumors surrounding Ben Simmons and the Cavs.
We then move on to another topic that added a little more drama to the Philly sports headlines of the week. Doc Rivers was questioned by Keith Pompey at a press conference about the Sixers’ underperformance against shorthanded teams. Obviously, the Sixers coach didn’t like the question and even called it a “stupid question.” We offer our opinions on how Doc Rivers has handled the media since being in Philadelphia.
Next, the podcast deals with the Christmas Day report from ESPN insider Adrian Wojranowski, which links Ben Simmons to a possible trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers. We’re bringing up several Cleveland players who we think could potentially land with the Sixers in exchange for Bens Simmons. Darius Garland was a name mentioned by everyone on the podcast.
Finally, we assess the status of the Sixers, as the team nears the middle of the season. We ask which players at this stage have underperformed, exceeded and lived up to expectations so far. We end the conversation by explaining whether the Sixers’ current record accurately reflects who they are as a team.
