Not seeing how people could really be on the Sixers side at this point. Again, they wanted to trade him, he wanted out. They publicly thew him under the bus and more or less blamed him for their playoff failure. Fine.

The entirety of this now lies on a GM who wants a king's ransom in return. A return that only a prime Jordan would get you.

Did people honestly think Ben would show up, and it's all water under the bus? They are basically holding him hostage at this point.

Just think about it. What happens when Ben plays in a home game? He'll be booed off the court the second he enters the game.

I agree that he shouldn't act childish because it's all tit for tat at this point, but that franchise is stupid as hell which is typical of Morey.

I dislike Morey as much as the next guy. But itís his job to get as close to fair value and fit for the franchise. I agree he probably wanted too much. Heís not getting it now; he outplayed his hand. But Ben is acting like an absolute idiot. Heís a laughingstock of the league. Was that the plan?

There was no way out for him though. I firmly believe he would be booed at home on a consistent basis even if he had showed up with no drama. The fans have already turned on him.

I mean, is it really better if he just half ass plays like Harden did for Houston in his last days there? Houston was a trash team, so he could afford to do that. Philly needs to win now, and Ben isn't going to be a part of that. So why pretend?

There are no winners in this as long as it continues. But the idea that Ben is the only childish one is silly. Putting his salary in escrow to deduct fines from it while not paying him is ridiculous.

Westbrook to LA was so overhyped and I'm here for a Lakers implosion. That team is old old.

The Pacers rookie was insane last night. He is not afraid to shoot.

I had not thought of it this way, but a lot of similarities there. Though tough to come back and play for a coach and FO that openly dogged you, right or wrong, direct or indirect, after the post season loss.

Duarte is really good. Lot of solid rookie play across the first games.

: The NBA is preparing for a massive story accusing #Suns owner Robert Sarver of racism, sexism and sexual harassment in a series of incidents, sources say. With enough evidence to support such claims, there’s a real chance the league would forcibly remove Sarver.
