I was the biggest Coach Rivers supporter for years, but it is what it is with him and his consistently bad coaching.
Doc rivers is oblivious to every situation in life you can tell by the way he rocking his hair first breh from that generation not chopping the obvious baldy. Same with coaching he rather stick with deandre out of some sense of loyalty for what he did in the past every time that dude on the floor Miami makes a 10+ run.

I mean at least he tried even though he missed those free throws last year and the turnovers but other than that the jury is still out on this guy. He could lead the sixers to a chip but I don’t know. I’m not a Philly fan but I am named after one of the Philly goats so I always wish them the best, they need to get a better roster. They’re not a championship team yet

He does these things but I do get the sense that he lacks that hard-to-quantify ability to galvanize the troops so to speak. The lead by example types don't really work out unless there's a more vocal co-captain.

That being said, the timing on this is odd since Embiid is out and saying he isn't an MVP caliber player is ridiculous.
all that galvanizing shyt BS. you either got good players/coaches who are smart or you don't

North Jersey but I miss Cali :sadcam:
So you’ve been watching how terrible the Sixers have looked without Embiid and your conclusion is that he’s NOT an MVP caliber player? Lol

They wasn't that good when he was in there. Crumbling.


It's not that hard to show out in the regular season. The playoffs are a different animal. I'm not saying Embid is a scrub, but based on his time in Philly, How many players have come and gone. Who has elevated their game because of him? What was his impact on Ben Simmons? A superstar big man, yet Jimmy Butler didn't want to stay long term. No. 1 Pick in Fultz bushed. Where was his leadership?

I rip Towns a lot, but at lease players like playing with him. I don't see that with Embid. He's a fraud to be honest. He puts up his numbers, but at the end of the day, you can't run shyt through him. He complains too much. I remember when Harden first arrived and he was overjoyed about all the space he was seeing for the first time. He was more worried about how Harden coming in was benefiting HIM. And of course he threw Simmons under the bus after last season.
