Pregame story on mental health and they show a picture of Walton? And right after Mo talked about how it’s challenging to have the crowd back…Ok then…now they’re talking about players struggling….are they talking about Fox?

Seriously. He never said he had mental illness. He said he isn’t mentally ready to play for the Sixers. Translation – he doesn’t want to play for the Sixers.

This might be a game where almost every player has a good game.

Fox looking good. Buddy looking aggressive. Davion making some offense. Len doing good things. Richaun being Richaun. Harrison gonna make some shots.

And Tyrese going berzerk.

In a very short sample size of games an argument can be made that Buddy is the most improved within his role coming off the bench this year.

He can get that shot every time down the court. The opposing team wants him to take the shot. He should NOT be taking it. That’s the point.

When he starts hitting at least 30 percent from 3, he can start pulling the trigger in the final minute. Until then, pass it to one of the three other guys who can hit the shot much better

That 8 man rotation was moving the ball and playing good D for the back half of the First and 2nd quarter. Which is exactly why you do it. And, had the coaches done anything different you would have said that was nuts too.

It was inevitable, after the 80’s mom jeans came back.

Earlier this year I was at a college town (SLO) witnessing all the college girls wearing the high-waisted jeans.
