Ben Simmons & Joel Embiid are putting the entire city of Philadelphia at harm with their selfishness to get better.
A Zilgitt bomb dropped this afternoon & sadly I was not surprised.
As they say – Philly gonna Philly.
So that got me thinking, what are some appropriate punishments for the 76ers*:
- Ben Simmons must shoot with his opposite hand for the remainder of the season
- Joel Embiid should have to drink an entire vat of Shirley Temple’s pre-game
- NBA mandate that the 76ers surround these 2 talents with role players that can’t shoot
- Must employ a coach approaching 60 with a sub .500 winning %
- Sign a post player that eats up their cap and plays the same position as Embiid – making it very difficult for them to play together
I think we have a good starting point. Even if just one of these were implemented – the 76ers would be in rough shape.
Moral of the story is don’t be like Simmons & Embiid – practice proper social distancing & act selflessly not selfishly.
*In case you didn’t realize – all these are true for the current 76ers (Yikes).
