      Off Topic - Who did Philly got for Vucevic?

      I'm just asking bevause Vucevic is a STUD. He's really impressive. The guy is a legit 20/10 guy. He's not just a great post up player, but he can also shoot. Can't believe anyone would trade a guy like that???
      Andrew Bynum and J-Rich...it was part of the Dwight Howard trade.

      Horrible deal for Philly. They probably were low on him because they were using him mostly as a stretch 5 and already had Hawes...and probably didn't make any real effort to develop him.

      Vucevic is the most underrated big in the league...no one talks about him because he's on a bad Orlando team. But he will be a 20-10 type guy for years.

      **Oh, and in the deal, Philly gave up Vucevic, Harkless, Iggy and a future 1st round pick

        If memory serves correctly, he was part of the multi-team Dwight Howard trade. Don't remember who Philly got though...

        • Vucevic is great but he will need a Nerlens Noel, Amir Johnson type to cover his slips on defense

              I'd say what Phillly did over the last few years was beyond Babcock .. trading guys like Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes for 2nd Round Picks? Brutal. I'd jump ship if we ever started doing that.

                Maybe...In all likelihood, yes, his PF will have to be more of a standout defender than he's shown so far...

                But Vuc is young on a bad young team. Not a great environment for improving team D. He's bound to make some progress, however small, as the team improves and he gains more experience. Find it hard to gauge his long-term outlook on that end given the current situation.

                  Not that Turner and Hawes are world-beaters, but I'm sure they could've done better than 2nd round picks.

                  But I must admit, I am very curious to see if this rock-bottom approach eventually works for them. I guess it'll depend on how good Noel and Embiid become.

                      Back in my playing days, I actually found it to be the other way around. Found it too distracting not to have sleeves.

                      But I guess it all comes down to what you're used to.
                      Never liked playing with sleeves but some guys swear by them.

                      • Never liked playing with sleeves either, but I have a feeling the biggest thing for me would have been the camouflage pattern blending in too well with the background (crowd), particularly within peripheral vision.

                        Perhaps the craziest thing though is that the organization never had the team practice even once with them. Word is that PPat didn't even know they were wearing them until arriving at the arena, for the game, yesterday. wtf
