No salta, los tapones y eso los hace de rodillas.

Histórico también iba a poner. Hay que mudarse a la conferencia oeste para jugar más veces por temporada en el Staples, ha sido alucinante.GiKONG escribió:Partido histórico de Embiid. Sin palabras.
Covington will receive a $15 million bump on top of his current $1.6 million salary this season, plus an additional $44.9 million through the 2021-22 season. The money is a boon for Covington, an undrafted free agent in 2013 who made just $3.2 million in his first four NBA seasons. Once the deal is signed, he is set for life.
But Covington still isn’t getting paid what he deserves. The 26-year-old is scoring 16.5 points per game while draining 49.5 percent of his 3s. He emulates everything you would want in a 3-and-D player.
Covington is better than T.J. Warren, who in September received an extension of $50 million over the next four seasons. Covington is arguably better than Gary Harris, who received $84 million over four seasons last month. Covington is also arguably better than Otto Porter Jr., who received a max contract last offseason worth $107 million over four seasons. So why would Covington agree to the deal?
Timing is everything. Unlike the past two summers, most teams won’t have the cap room to splurge next offseason, when Covington was set to hit the unrestricted free-agent market. Only six or seven teams are projected to have max cap space in the summer of 2018, and there are bigger fish in the sea than Covington. Waiting would have come with significant risk, and not just because of the limited number of suitors. He could have gotten hurt, or his production could have fallen off.
Covington made the right choice, and so did the Sixers. It would’ve been a risk on their end to let Covington go into unrestricted free agency. Even with funds evaporated across the league, all it takes is one team to spend big and steal a player away. Now Bryan Colangelo and the Philly front office retain financial flexibility moving forward and one of the most promising young cores in the league. Covington won’t spawn headlines or hot takes like Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, or Markelle Fultz, but he’s a crucial component of their team, and one of the biggest success stories of the Process.
peixes escribió:A mi me parecen 2 traspasos bastante absurdos, sobre todo el de López. No querría pagarle lo que cobra para 15 minutos que jugaría si Embiid está entero. Además Holmes y Amir me parecen más que suficientes para los minutos que deje Jojo e incluso para los días que le toque descansar.
El de Delly sería algo más interesante, pero realmente Sixers lo que necesita es descargar todos los salarios que tenga en ese tipo de jugadores y ver si pesca algo este verano. Además de que el titular es Fultz a medio plazo.
Lo que si me causa más curiosidad, como aficionado que no sigue el día a día de los Sixers, es el perfil que van a buscar para ser el quinto titular con Fultz - Simmons - Covi - Embiid para la próxima temporada. Es decir, si te cae un Lebron o super estrella similar, te las ingenias para hacer funcionar el asunto y listo. Pero si te tienes que ir a piezas secundarias y buscar encaje, creeis que se apostaría por un tirador como Redick otra vez? O algo más perfil 3&D tipo Danny Green? O incluso, viendo que el equipo va bastante sobrado de jugadores para el SF/PF con los Simmons, Saric y Covington, un jugador más pequeño que Green, tipo George Hill por ejemplo.
Embiid had decided to basketball-murder the Los Angeles Lakers. Like, all of them. Everyone on the team.
He overpowered them like Young Shaq. He Euro-stepped around them like a mutant James Harden. He drained 3s like Same-Age Porzingis. He rolled to the rim like Georgetown Ewing. He protected the rim like A Not As Young As We Probably Thought Dikembe. He pranced around in full command of the stage; you almost expected him to grab a microphone and sing Marvin Gaye songs during the timeouts. And just when we thought the night had peaked, Embiid unveiled a Hakeem-McHale quadruple-pivot drop step that twisted poor Julius Randle into a helpless pretzel—nobody has executed a low-post move that complicated in 20 years
Of course, Embiid isn’t even the best player on his own team. Ben Simmons is better than him. You can’t call Embiid a “can’t miss” because of his knees and his body and his injury history. Barring another fluke injury (and you could say that about anyone), Simmons absolutely, positively, unequivocally can’t miss. When I compared him to the best possible version of Lamar Odom two weeks ago, I shot too low. He’s a bigger/better/nastier Grant Hill, with a dash of Magic and a sprinkle of LeBron thrown in. He’s a future MVP and he can’t even shoot yet
With Simmons as The Sure Thing and Embiid as The Great Unknown, the Sixers already have a precocious one-two punch that ranks among the all-time building-block duos: Elgin and Jerry, Bird and McHale, Ralph and Hakeem, KD and Russ, Kemp and GP, Shaq and Penny, you name it.
Could you say Philly fans crawled through 500 yards of shit-smelling foulness and came out clean on the other side? Sure, why not? They embraced the Process, sacrificed years of their NBA-watching lives for it, kept buying tickets for the worst products imaginable, believed in the great unknown and battled everyone who felt differently about the concept of an NBA franchise intentionally losing for almost half a decade. And when the world finally swung their way, the naysayers (like me) couldn’t say anything. They won. They sacrificed nearly five full years of their NBA lives for what we witnessed on Wednesday night. I’m happy for them.
