Hey look at that! Many on here claimed he was being disingenuous when he claimed he was committed to Philadelphia and continuing to play with Embiid.

They were wrong.

Hoping that Ben gets to celebrate multiple parades down Broad over the next six seasons.

if this kid could learn, and many in the past have, to shoot a J he will be deadly. Not only will he be a beast but will be a league MVP. He can drive to the hoop, can pass and is a great defender.

I believe he will. Kid is young. He will work on it, develop a J and be a beast for years to come

Elite court vision.

Is there another player in the league who can't shoot that has a max deal?

I guess that's the bet they are making because if he does develop an average shot, he very well may be underpaid in a few years.

I mean, Harris said Simmons hit two threes in a row against him in a one on one game so we should be good there, no?? I'm kidding.

now I am not nuts and comparing him to Magic but he didn't have a shot early on either. Kid can still develop one. I know everyone has been saying it over and over but who knows why not be optimistic. You never know

Jason Kidd is who I always think of. He couldn't shoot much at all early on and by the time the Nets were in the finals he was a decent three point shooter.

We'll see. I'm not as gung ho as I was a year ago but I'm still optimistic. I have no problem with the contract.
