Skip Bayless is an idiot.

How about that 4 team trade though. So far Iguodala is underperforming in Denver, Bynum hasn't even played, and the Lakers are a huge bust so far.
Apparently the Sixers have the most wins among the 4 teams....

Not that familiar with Bayless and his integrity to be honest but hopefully he is an idiot b/c this situation would be a huge disappointment.

Having said this...it seems though that the concerns are pretty real from various sources even if Bayless is exaggerating etc..

To put it in perspective, Panoccio looks like a Pulitzer prize winning journalists/talking t.v. head compared to Skip.

He's the biggest joke on TV. The only reason he has a job is because he has ridiculous opinions on everything and for some reason people enjoy watching him argue with Stephan A Smith.

Jrue Holiday will not be playing tonight. I caught the line at -5 right now Indiana. That line is bound to go up. This Sixers team will be in trouble if Holiday can't go for some extended time.

At least he helped out in other areas and didn't try to force shots. I'll deal with the poor scoring performance considering the guy who was guarding him is one of the best.

Good for Vuce. There was a lot of criticism of the pick at the time, but it looks like he could end up a solid starting center. I'll take that from the 16th pick all day. Not that I would undo trading him for Bynum but it's too bad we're stuck with Hawes and Kwame instead.

My bad....we are all but assured the title now especially since Howard has been less than stellar in LA and is out hurt.

Sixers are terrible. Holiday and Young have been solid but it's not translating to wins.

At this point they're better off just tanking. Bynum aint coming back and if he does it will be too late to matter.

They should consider trading Turner for somebody with some kind of inside presence.

I agree on Bynum.....but you know he's going to make a run at that payout he wants.

Sadly I think this next draft there are no big men of any significance supposedly ..... looks like another lottery year for the Sixers regardless

Zeller and Noel but I doubt they finish that low once Bynum comes back. Taking Turner over Cousins really hurts right about now.

This team was built to play with a 7-1 force playing center. When you try to replace him with players the caliber of kwame brown and lavoy allen, serious struggles shouldnt come at much of a surprise

On a positive note, I'm happy with the play of holiday, thad and turner this year as a whole. All three have shown a considerable amount of improvement.

It absolutely was. Only two guys can create their own shot- Holiday and Turner and depending on the night Nick Young as well. The front court is a bunch of complimentary guys who for the most part prefer the perimeter style of play and that just doesn't cut it at this level.

Agreed....Sixers are just too soft and they don't have the respect of the refs either b/c of it....they are one of the least fouled teams in the league.

As a player? Absolutely. But Cousins is such a train wreck mentally and would be under a bigger microscope here compared to Sacramento.

I just hope they hang close to a playoff spot until Bynum comes back, then make a push and get in at the end. With a supposedly weak draft, this would be a good year to lose a low 1st round pick (that we owe from the Bynum trade). Even as bad as they're playing now I can't see them being bad enough to get a really good lottery pick.
