This is the first I heard about the 6ers picking Tobias over Jimmy (I think he's half joking lol). I always thought Jimmy left because of Brett Brown/Ben Simmons, even though he loves Embiid.

They traded for Tobias after the Butler trade, was he really making demands that he didn't want to play with Butler, WTF. Also they got desperate and gave Tobias a max because Elton Brand is an idiot. Either way, the 6ers completely fukked up that 2019 offseason :snoop:

Regardless of what he says though, the real reason was Ben/Brett. And I knew it was a bad decision back then. Ben was a wack non-shooting ass nikka even at that point and anyone with eyes that wasn't a biased stan saw it. You don't wait until the last minute to trade someone. You trade them while there's still some dummies out there that think they're high value. They could've tricked alot of teams to give up something valuable in return for Simmons. Paired Embiid with Jimmy + Maxey, Thybulle and whatever they got in return for Simmons and that's a contender :manny: I said the same thing with the Eagles. They should've shipped Carson's ass out after Foles won. That was a toxic environment for a starter knowing his backup won a Superbowl. They could've traded Carson when everyone thought he was still that guy, got a HUGE haul for him, then if/when Foles stopped working out, you would've had Hurts there waiting along with all the pieces you got for Carson.

Get'eem jimmy.

Also can doc rivers be sent to the torture chamber too.
As rivers undermines higher pedigree taller skilled players. In favor of his lower skilled and pedigreed favoritism based picks undersized at pg. [He undermined rey rey to simmons and made the clippers a small ball team instead of a big backcourt dominate team. Where the clippers were injured and never secured a title. As their star players played out of position and were injured past the point of no return. Plus played favoritism because of social dysfunction as well] Instead of knowing how to coach a sg and a sf.
Including how to create a high percentage basketball low post attack.

Without thibs and doc rivers both together. They are complete frauds as coaches. That now it is hopefully exposed fully. Both were only successful in thwarting an outdated larry brown exposed two superstar scheme phil jackson. Which phil and kobe phased out the next year by bringing in artest. like rodman on the bulls.
to win a war of dinosaur based attrition.
Which is the only way rivers and thibs got shine and are remedial. Unless gifted a team they really did not know how to coach once split apart.

In this people forget. Doc rivers was again bested by the heat's nepotism based videographer. Who this time had no dwade bron or bosh. Just basically one of the best rampup players in any and all of sports history in jimmy butler. Where jimmy butler is successful.
Simply because jimmy simply said to himself at some point.
I am six.seven.
why can't i.. Then went out and applied himself. To turn the word can't into i can.


Everyone could learn from jimmy butler.

Stop looking at the negative and look at your positives and then work on that to achieve.

Cot damn it...go jimmy. Go.

Yeah a banged up jimmy giving his all after carrying his team all year is worst than Tobias Harris fukk outta here
No excuses for him actively not shooting the ball. If you wanna use the injury excuse, that would apply more to him backing down defenders in the post - not turning down jumpshots when nobody is around him. Besides, he's still moving fine out there. He's still crashing the glass and playing defense.

And nobody said Tobias is better. It's more so Jimmy isn't the player that some believe he is.
