(VIDEO) LaVar Ball Fires Back at Joel Embiid

The saga continues, there is no question that Joel Embiid is tired of hearing LaVar speak everytime he is in public. After Embiid said “F*** LaVar Ball” on Instagram Live, this is what LaVar had to say.

After Embiid said “F*** LaVar Ball” on Instagram Live, this is what LaVar had to say.


Honestly, this is a joke!!! Why is a 48-year-old man going at it with a 23-year-old? Maybe both of them love attention and want everyone to speak about it.

Last year, when Embiid was healthy, he averaged 20.2 points per game, 7.8 rebounds, 2.5 blocks, and 2.1 assists. I know for sure everyone is waiting for the first game these two teams faceoff.

 

JJ Redick Agree to a 1-Year, $23 Million w/76ers

On Saturday morning, the Philadelphia 76ers reportedly agreed to a one-year, $23M deal with JJ Redick.




Redick went on Twitter to announced that he was joining the Joel Embiid and company.

Signing Redick to the 76ers can help the team with leadership and spacing out the floor. Last season with the Clippers, he averaged 15 points per game and was shooting 42.9 percent from the three.

Redick, who now is 33 years of age is looking to get paid, and why not with a team who can be fun to be with and also shape the minds of the younger players.





76ers Give Ben Simmons Every Opportunity To Be Their Starting Point Guard

76ers Willing to Start Ben Simmons at Point Guard


Despite the depth in the point guard position for the 2017 NBA Draft, the 76ers still plan to run their offense through Ben Simmons and will pursue starting Simmons at point guard long-term.

“I feel that the team has to try that immediately,” Brett Brown said. “In my eyes, we are going to try that. I feel that it’s something that I doubt you say, ‘That didn’t work,’ and you just move on quickly.

“There has to be a body of work that you judge him on.”

Simmons will miss this entire season after surgery to repair a Jones fracture in his right foot.

Among those expected to be the top point guards in June’s draft are Markelle Fultz, Lonzo Ball, Dennis Smith Jr., and De’Aaron Fox. Also in the mix is Frank Ntilikina, an 18-year-old French point guard.

There are also a number of free agent point guards with Kyle Lowry in particular linked to the 76ers due to ties to Philadelphia.

Joel Embiid is the New Greg Oden

Joel Embiid is the new Greg Oden, For now!


Joel Embiid, the center who was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers in 2014 is out for the remainder of the season with a recent MRI scan revealed the meniscus tear in his left knee. That is three major injuries and people are going to dislike what I am going to say but Joel Embiid is the new Greg Oden for now.

We hope he comes out healthy, but for now. He is in the same position that Greg Oden was a few years back. Both of these players were hurt in college and could not stay healthy in the pros. Joel has only played 31 games out of 246 NBA games.

Embiid has a chance to come back strong and give the 76ers fans the great basketball they truly deserve. With him and Ben Simmons, I believe they can make some noise next year and hopefully make the playoffs.

2017 NBA TRADE DEADLINE: Winners and Losers

2017 NBA TRADE DEADLINE: Winners and Losers


This year NBA trade deadline was not as big as others in the past year. The only big name star that was traded was DaMarcus Cousins. Other than him, regular role players were traded before Thursday 12 pm pacific time. Other super star names that we were expecting to hear was Paul George, Jimmy Butler, Carmelo, and even Blake griffin.  None of these teams did much to make them better for the 2nd half of the season. The Clippers are still stuck in the same place, just like the Bulls, Pacers, and Knicks.
Below, are all the trades that happen during the past few days.
