Dario was drafted and Covington was signed off the D league and developed during it. Literally the two key plays in the trade.

 

Once again the process was just a marketing strategy to keep people interested in what they would become by continuing to suck and stock up picks. Regardless of those picks not planning out they don’t become the team they are today without them. 

I know wtf point of the "process" was. 

 

But you're wrong. Their process was tanking to draft high. Had nothing to do with signing players other teams drafted. And every team does that.

 

Not every team sucks for 6 years on purpose in order to draft players high. THAT was the process. Guys like Reddick, Covington, Bellineli, Amir Johnson are not guys they acquired through their process. If that's the case, every team goes through that process of signing guys. 

 

But you are right about one thing, if those others they picked didnt suck as bad, they dont land Embiid or Simmons. But that's why it's a joke. The process was a way to avoid saying "we suck at picking players" so bare with us. So the process became nothing but a hit or miss game for the FO. 

 

Finally, out of their 15 top 10 picks, they finally hit two.

 

That's like saying if LA trades KCP, Ingram, and a couple of picks for Davis, "our process" got us AD. Lmao. Bullshit.

Can you read you fucking idiot? I literally said the process was a selling point to keep fans interested while they continue to suck and stock up picks. How the fuck am I wrong when you say the same exact fucking thing in different words? 

 

And while they continued to suck they found a player like Covington who developed into an all nba defensive player. That doesn’t happen if they don’t continue to suck. Just because they didn’t draft him doesn’t mean he wasn’t a product of it. Completely different scenario than Riddick, Belinelli and Johnson who are nba vets that signed with them for a year or two. Covington was going into his second year and was cut. They claimed him and developed him. He was able to play and become a valuable asset which allowed them to acquire Butler.

Lmao. You're the idiot. You said actually naming it "the process" was purely a marketing stunt. 

 

And I'm saying it wasn't just a marketing stunt.  It was a real process they put into effect because they sucked at drafting. 

 

They didnt try to suck. They just did because their eye for talent was poop for so long.

@Little Earl curious as to what PHI fans are thinking about with this new look. And what you think about what Broussard is sayng... 

Most Sixers fans like Butler, assuming he signs after the season.  

 

Many are also thinking Fultz could be a bust and probably needs to go to a bad team where he can play more and hopefully work out his shooting woes.    Really not sure what is going on with him.  He clearly has shown in high school and college that he could shoot.   So either he is a mental midget, or he still has a shoulder problem, or a combo of both.    The league forced Colangelo on the Sixers, which was a disaster.   Fortunately he is gone and only could do so much to destroy all the assets Hinke accumulated.    

 

They need to resign Butler and sign a good power forward in the off season, and they will have a title contender.     Or move Simmons to PF and sign a PG.

Wouldn't moving Simmons to PF severely devalue him as a player? I mean he needs the ball in his hands to do his thing. He obviously isnt a spot up or jump shooter. I just dont understand why anyone would think to take him off ball. Seems like that takes away what makes him good.

@Oiler FANatic, tell me again what yalls record when your "big 3" play. Because tall are 1-7 (this year) when one of Harden or CP doesnt play. 

 

Told you. They gonna have to carry that team. Even if they dont become hurt for the playoffs, they'll be drained. 

 

No depth, no D.

 

So who yall gonna trade for?

 

Maybe you should bring Melo back since he made yall better.

I bet the Wizards FO laughed at this offer like I did.

I am not sure.   Granted Wall is much better than Lonzo, but Wall is also owed an absurb amount of $140 million over the next 4 years.  They are going to have to take back less in order to get rid of that contract.

I wouldn't assume Ernie Grunfeld had any kind of competent thought. That's like assuming Lendale White doesn't want second or Vince Young is going to do well in a spelling contest.
