The criticism Embiid is receiving is just wrong IMO

As a Sixers fan, I hate his foul baiting game but he’s obviously injured

Harden, Doc and Brand should be fired into the sun for their performance

Unfortunately, we’re stuck with Harden due to salary cap issues and management probably won’t want to pay Doc to play golf for 3 years

Nah

Embiid and Simmons are very young

Joel is 28 & Simmons has just turned 25 and hasn’t played in a year

Total mismanagement of the roster

Imo Harden's decline has been a tad overstated
Ok this might have been wrong. He's looked like complete ass for too long now. I kind of thought his A+ playmaking would mean he'd age well but way too much of his game is based on blowing by guys and it just hasnt gotten better. Even those two big games he had against the raptors in game 6 and against the heat in game 4 were hot shooting nights which isn't really his game . Probably needs a full offseason? But boy, sixers are in a real bind.

Grizzlies have outplayed golden state for most of this series, just ****ed up a few key plays towards the end of games. 3-1 ptsd will be strong for the warriors if they lose today.

Yeah, by people installed because the league ousted the GM who built it for ****ing Brian Collangelo.
Examples of gross mismanagement since Colangelo

Jimmy felt disrespected and bailed

Panicked and gave Tobias the max

Traded away Mikal Bridges for a guy who no longer plays

Gave away Fultz for an empty packet of chips

Signed Horford to a $100 million contract & played him out of position

Appointed Doc fkn Rivers before hiring Morey

Didn’t sack Rivers after last season

Allowed the Simmons saga to spiral completely out of control

Traded Simmons, depth & our remaining picks for the corpse of Harden

Current version of Sixers is way worse than any team since Embiid & Simmons started playing together and we have burned most of our assets to get there

You forgot to mention that they spent a pick swapping out Jayson Tatum for Markelle Fultz, just to dump him for a bag of chips.

I just don’t get paying max money and trying to build championship contenders around players like Westbrook and Harden…they have given everyone so many examples of their limitations over the years yet supposedly knowledgeable people around the league persist with the idea that they can lead teams to championships…

Who is criticizing Embiid? I haven’t seen anything online…Harden has been the target and deservedly so…
What I've read has been pretty mild in the media. Stuff like 'disappointed in not being MVP' at worst.

Reddit and Twitter on the other hand...

At the time the MVP announcement came out Shaq and Chuck did have a go at him for not having his head in the game, after a loss to the Heat.

Absolute insanity in the second Game 7. Mavs up 30 in half time. Booker and Paul didn't land a single field goal. Luka played only 18 min in the first half and has 27-3-9, can't miss from the 3 point line. On the way to one of the GOAT Game 7 performances.

Glad I woke up for this.
