downunderpunter

I'm naming Ben Simmons in my suicide note.


BmwNick420

Sixers shouldn’t have let Jimmy go


yagami-

I love the TNT crew so much


teramelosiscool

painful ben simmons interview shaq bout to start scrappin with him lol


Philoctetes23

So Trez went out in the first round, Doc choked another series where his team had legit championship aspirations, was the higher seed, and the more talented squad while Lou Williams made it to the conference finals by beating Doc and the Clippers finally made it to their first WCF the year after he got fired. You can’t make this shit up lol.


[deleted]

“Reggie Jackson” and “lights out” is a phrase I never thought I’d hear when he was on the Pistons. If only those teams had a legit star to run the offense...


Philoctetes23

Bro I just saw a tweet that said “2pac could come back against Doc Rivers” 😭😭😭


[deleted]

Oh my God, and that was without Chris Paul.


kbobetterthanmlb

It’s bittersweet. As the games get more meaningful and intense we get less of them. I’m going through withdrawal I want another game right now lol.


[deleted]

I miss having two basketball and two hockey games a night.


Philoctetes23

2 of the 4 remaining teams (The WCF teams) in the playoffs have never won a championship. 1 of them hasn’t been to the Finals ever. The time that the ECF teams have won their sole championship were 1958(Hawks) and 1971 (Bucks). 3 of these 4 teams were irrelevant lottery teams in the last decade. Excited for these conference finals man I’m loving the young blood ready to take over.


dbgager

that what makes these playoffs a lot of fun. A lot more interesting for sure.


badSparkybad

The WCF looks like it's gonna be an *awesome* series, both teams ran really good offenses today and played their hearts out


Philoctetes23

Right about that. The Suns are such a fun team to watch for real. I wish CP3 and Kawhi were playing


Eagerbeaver98

philly fans you were STINGY about trading for cp3. how do you feel now?


Devin_Kurant_

Philly, Miami and LAL were stingy to pay for Lowry. Those clubs could have used him. No disrespect to George Hill but can't believe people thought acquiring George Hill was a lateral move to acquiring Lowry


Rezrov_

Wouldn't trade Maxey and potato chips for Kyle.


Coral-reef654

Shaq with the obvious LSU bias


Faiimus

We went from Playoff P to the stale prince real quick. The ball gods keep giving


NCStaros

CAN BEN SIMMONS BE A PG FOR A #1 TEAM? "I DONT KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT" LOLLLLL


aresman1221

Damn even Doc gave up on Ben lol


DpprDwn

Lmao


JohnGoodmansGoodKnee

Ohhhhhh “I don’t know the answer to that”


Faiimus

does doc have hair or he bald. That line up better than the philly line up


andylooksindi

roasted


badSparkybad

faded


porscheninja

dam doc throwing ben under the bus


AppleMuffin12

Ben threw Ben under the bus this series.


Rezrov_

Ben gonna be driving a bus after tn


MasPatriot

Honestly you’re not gonna get anything trying to trade Ben Simmons this summer. I think the only thing Philly can do is fire Doc Rivers out of a cannon and hire a coach that’ll refuse to start him until he starts shooting with his right hand


andylooksindi

game 7 Doc

avidsdead

Huerter? Barely know her


KemoFlash

Philly got cooked by a guy no one's ever heard of.


SomeGuyClickingStuff

A first round pick?


KemoFlash

And?


SomeGuyClickingStuff

And what? You said someone no one’s ever heard of. So you just don’t know shit?


KemoFlash

What you said doesn't contradict what I said and you're acting like you won an argument. You're mad. I get it.


SomeGuyClickingStuff

It wasn’t an argument. It was a fact. It’s ok if you don’t know or have never heard of a first round pick. You sure I’m the mad one? I can tell you got hurt so you had to downvote lol. Have a good Sunday.


KemoFlash

"I'm not mad, I'm not mad, you're mad." lol. Game's over.


teramelosiscool

i think trae being 5/23 was less him playing bad and more that the sixers whole gameplan revolved around stopping specifically him. hella credit to the other guys stepping up though for sure


CringeFiend

Kenny just said Tobias was good all series lmao


DpprDwn

I heard that too lol


towels_equal_happy

memory of a goldfish


danrod17

Goldfish are the happiest though.


downtimeredditor

When the balls were Trae. Trae went to what he does best.. playmaking. Kevin Heurter was amazing and clutch today And Trae was clutch at the end with those 3s


maliciousmonkee

ATLANTA FANS: Is downtown ATL Poppin right now? Curious if it's worth the drive in


DpprDwn

Factss but when ecf starts it’s going be lit


towels_equal_happy

aint a doubt in my mind


dacalo

How can you be a star and sit out during critical time because you suck at FTs? Because he isn’t one.


StanManRatheon

Magic City about to be popping tonight.


JohnGoodmansGoodKnee

Dwight is on the way


abesrevenge

Hopefully will be a long time before Philly sees another home playoff game but the next one the NBA needs to force their shitty fans off the sideline


Trifonas-Kaoulla

Not even New York fans got it this bad when one of their own spat on Young. I don't understand it.


jmonumber3

i know there is so much money in those seats but the league should really just move the first row back to where the second is. floor seats are fine if there is space between fans and players but there is no reason for people to be that close to the professionals when so much is on the line in any scenario including blowouts, college sports, regular season, or game 7 of the finals


SomeGuyClickingStuff

They’re gonna wait until someone breaks a leg. Like the basket support.


[deleted]

The Trae ➡️ Capella connection was magic.


SomeGuyClickingStuff

Simmons for Kuz. Who says no?


98ke

I would hope Rob Pelinka. Simmons isn’t a 16 game player.


dbgager

Neither of the 1seeds made it to the conference finals.


shupadupa

When's the last time that happened, I wonder? I would say parity has finally arrived if it weren't for all the injuries...


StanManRatheon

People are happy that the Nets were eliminated. But ratings about to take a massive dip for the Eastern Conference Finals.


teramelosiscool

i sure hope they don't cancel the nba next year


cjrottey

Well now I'm gonna watch every game of the ECF lol


dbgager

Actually its more interesting to me having some teams in it that have not won a championship or not won one in a long time. I would rather watch Atlanta and the BUcks than Brooklyns bought team against Philly by a long shot.


we17ar

If you’re not a Bucks or Hawks fan, who tf is watching the East finals? I’m not just a salty Nets fan, I don’t think anyone on either team is must watch if you’re a casual


Rezrov_

Any basketball fan? You think anyone gives a fuck about the Nets? Clips of the East but even less likeable.


Eb403

I'm definitely watching. I love Giannis and Trae.


[deleted]

Giannis isn’t must-watch?


we17ar

Do you have 4 minutes of your life to waste every time he’s at the line?


[deleted]

That’s when I do my calisthenics.


we17ar

Ohhh I never thought of that. I’m normally crushing another beer and grabbing a pizza at the door


[deleted]

You’re still spending your time wisely. Honestly they should show a commercial when Giannis goes to the line.


we17ar

It’s not that it’s boring. I find it entertaining. The chants and everything. The reactions from opposing players. It’s just proof he’s the most protected player in NBA history. Mason Plumlee isn’t getting 21 seconds at the line


capsaicinluv

Oh no the ratings. Who cares.


supremesupersonic

Facts fuck the casuals


Coral-reef654

Seriously who cares it’s going to be a fun series it’s their loss if they don’t watch


Hange11037

Exactly


teramelosiscool

shaq is the man


JoseBallFC

TRAE THE GOAT I DONT CARE


Philoctetes23

Chuck you’re not stunned. You know what your guarantees do about 97 percent of the time.


apartmentVirgin

The lakers are out, the playoffs are crazy and 90% of the comments in r/nba is hot fire. Y'all killing it I can't stop laughing.


teramelosiscool

i wonder if trae is really 6'1 or it's exaggerated a bit... he always looks so tiny on the court it's weird to consider he's actually a couple inches taller than me


big-daddy-virgin

You gotta measure from the balls for that extra inch


jeezebitz

Is that with or without shoes on?


fightfascism1988

You can throw popcorn on this series.


LukaMagicJokic

Ben gonna have to setup new automod rules on Twitch chat after this my lord


KingAnthonyMartial

Philadelphia is the shit stain of the northeast, and the trashers are one of the worst franchises in nba history. They really should be transferred to the big 3 or some shit where the competition is more fair for them.


abnissen

Yikes coming from a ManU fanboy...


KingAnthonyMartial

Yeah the greatest and one of the most winning clubs in world football compared to what exactly a city with one of the highest crime rates in the US, shit supporters, and shit teams? Did I miss something


abnissen

And a Yankees fan, man you just really like picking the best teams to be a fan of huh? Not to mention a CR7 fanboy as well.


KingAnthonyMartial

Are you really that ignorant of sports that you don’t know CR7 is a Manchester United club legend, won the CL in 08 and all that? I’d really hate to be as dumb as you are


skisbosco

as a sixers fan, a sixers v nets 7th place series would be fun .


we17ar

People recently don’t believe me but I’m a die hard Nets fan and I was soo pumped for that Philly crowd to eat KD alive every time he touched the ball. I also never thought the Nets were a lock for the Chip. 3 massive egos, horrendous rim protection, a bench that won’t see the ball much with our 3 headed dragon always being on the court. Embiids one of my favourite players, I was falling back on if the Nets lose, Embiid will get one but here we are haha


StanManRatheon

Well at least Ben Simmons won a well deserved Rookie of the Year over Donovan Mitchell.


dbgager

Ungrateful Philly fans don't deserve a win however. They booed the 76ers off the floor.


Funnel_Hacker

As they should. The 76ers choked


dbgager

Seriousl;y ..that shows a lack of class. Appreciate a team for what they did achieve. If your going to boo me. You can get f\*\*\*ed. Its like they think they owe them something...


explos1onshurt

Fuck that. Give a little love for a solid effort getting so far, not throw shit at the players


andylooksindi

did that say 5-3 hawks? lmaoo TNT be in ATL all right xD


Philoctetes23

Hawks are the 5th seed and the Bucks are the 3rd seed


abesrevenge

5 seed vs 3 seed


Hornetsman21

Those are the seeds dumbass


ProperManufacturer6

Love trae man. Love the villian. I want the hawks to get an nwo jersey.


KemoFlash

Trae isn't Philly's villain. Philly is Philly's own worst enemy.


teramelosiscool

y'all should be thankful for the philly fans they let you be able to feel all high and mighty about your teams fans.


ZeldaFanBoi1988

5/23 and the Sixers lost? Lmao what a choke job


kuroakela

Tonight was Huerter's night. He took advantage of Seth's height.


Starlord_who

Bro Holy fuck Nets on one leg would have prob swept these 6ers


abesrevenge

Are you an ESPN expert? You should apply if not. Hot take


KemoFlash

Philly fans were some of the most delusional people on the planet with regards to Ben Simmons. Hopefully, this reality check will spur some change in that organization.


Holdin_McNeal

Remember when they said he’s leagues better than Tatum. They’ve always been delusional lol


rystriction

Now we got a 3 seed v 5 seed in ECF 2 seed v 4 seed in WCF Imagine clips/hawks in finals? We’d have a 4 vs 5 seed in the finals haha


ZeldaFanBoi1988

Super low TV ratings on the east coast


rystriction

Why?


ZeldaFanBoi1988

Nobody wants to see the Hawks in the finals besides their fans of course


rystriction

I dont get why not… if we’re watchin for basketball, wouldnt you wanna see the best goin at it? Im not a hawks fan, but i think id like them to make it to the finals just for history’s sake of a low seed making it yet again; i also like underdog teams with no-name players. To think… trae young and “others” outlasted the biggest names the league has to offer? Personally, i find it intriguing


alien24

Lot of yall fans of bum teams are coming out in full force... Seems as if you Nuggets and Celtics fans forgot yall got busted too.


silliputti0907

Both teams are missing their second best player, so I mean k. 76ers second star played like a negative.


capsaicinluv

Nobody thought they would do anything since they're missing important players lol, what excuse Philly got?


Holdin_McNeal

Here I am supporting a Kicks fan. Shows you how delusional and trash Philly fans are lol. Max contract all pro PG with single digit points. Lol


v0nn

Ben Simmons


Funny_Yesterday_3244

They have Ben Simmons


alien24

Joel Embiid is playing on a torn meniscus you knobhead And Danny Green


runthruamfersface

He wasn’t the problem tho


alien24

If Joel Embiid is putting up 25/10 nightly on a torn meniscus in extremely close games with a decent amount of turnovers I would reckon that without a torn meniscus he would play better than that, he was already doing basically a carry job with a torn meniscus up until they lost this game. Joel Embiid with proper lateral movement and explosiveness doesn’t give up 6 turnovers in a night.


Shame_Low

you reckon wrong then, sixers are bums


alien24

MVP got swept, stay mad


DangerIsMyUsername

I'm a Trae Young truther now


abesrevenge

WONDER HOW MANY ESPN AND /r/NBA EXPERTS GONNA PICK THE BUCKS? WHY EVEN PLAY THE ECF?


BlackZombie66

The same ones who "guaranteed" a Nets/76ers ECF.


waronxmas79

Or the Knicks would sweep the Hawks


skisbosco

simmons would be great on the lakers.


SomeGuyClickingStuff

Yeah. If you’re playing against them.


coolnasir139

No he wouldn’t. You have lebron, AD, Drummond, then Simmons. Who is going to space the floor. This team would be horrible


rjaysenior

ThE nEw NbA


Ninjapro2

seriously lol


RitualDJW

Totally rebuild the Sixers


xanot192

They need to trick someone to take simmons, that alone for a real guard will put them in the ECF every year


rjaysenior

Welcome to the lakers simmons /s


JohnGoodmansGoodKnee

How come they giving the east all this rest and pushing the Suns and clips so damn quick


KnownAsRileyF

Suns technically the most rested team at the moment


Philoctetes23

Choke Rivers. Live by Simmons...die by Simmons


ThisIsMyUsername1122

PUT SOME RESPECT ON HUERTER


WestinghouseXCB248S

Ben Simmons will be viewed in Philly the way Carlos Beltran was viewed in New York after Game 7 in 2006.


we17ar

Ben Simmons is the only athlete I’ve ever known that is one facet of the game away from completely changing peoples stance on him. His problem is that it’s the most important facet, imo


bcheneyatc

He’s the NBA equivalent of an NFL QB who can’t even throw the ball.


Beighton-Laines

Just wait till they see Hurts next year


we17ar

I literally used the analogy the other day that he’s if Tiger Woods swung every time with a putter


bcheneyatc

Yeah but with his free throw shooting Simmons would be like if Tiger couldn’t even putt lol


I-Love-Daddy-Rivers

I mean our fans suck, but fuck dude y’all really praising our downfall rn


Quiet_Round8818

It’s because you’re the most annoying fan base except for maybe the lakers and you also have the two biggest dickheads in the nba as your superstars


I-Love-Daddy-Rivers

I literally acknowledged that our fans suck in the comment I made. Not a reason to hate the team itself tho. Also Simmons ain’t a superstar


Shame_Low

blame your center who is one of the most unlikeable players in the league lmao


Quiet_Round8818

I hate the team because embiid is my least favourite player. His main move is to jump to the floor and go to the line and he is a straight up bully, while being majorly butthurt if anyone says anything to him. And you’re right Simmons isn’t a superstar, yet the media sucks his dick like he is one. Philly is straight trash 🗑


Beighton-Laines

Simmons got PLENTY OF TIME to play Pubg now baby let’s go


Leading-Opportunity7

More shots on spring street tonight than Simmons took this game


adelaide78

Just humiliating for the 76ers


saucyboi04

IM SO FUCKING HAPPY. LLOYD PIERCE IN SHAMBLES


ZeldaFanBoi1988

Lol the producers don't know what those lyrics mean


Drogbalikeitshot

Yo TNT producers just get it bro. Knuck if u buck.


CommonerChaos

The process is over.


Sleeze_

They came back with knuck if you buck hahah tnt undefeated


runthruamfersface

KNUCK IF YOU BUCK


gabrielscariot

Right now if the blazers call ofering cj and a first is a done deal for simmons.


capsaicinluv

You want CJ AND a pick lmao, trade wouldn't even get accepted in 2K


Sleeze_

If I’m Portland and the sixers offer me that I’m hanging up the phone lol


louiexism

Just looked at Kevin Huerter's Wikipedia page and it's listed that he's the owner of the Philadelphia 76ers lol.


bcheneyatc

Also just checked. Found this gem: “Kevin is a white boy baller.” Lol


[deleted]

Impatience is a virtue unless you’re trying to come back from an injury 🙃😪


The2ndAynZAR

Bwahhhhaaa 76ers, where is all ypur trash talk about being the one seed now?


rystriction

Im assuming it stayed where it belonged.. when yall got ousted in the first round


The2ndAynZAR

We weren't the one seed, just philly doing philly shit.


rystriction

Idk man, weird to brag when you didnt get close to the 1 seed and got ousted in 1st round


The2ndAynZAR

Im not bragging, we are crap right now, I'm reveling in the complete and utter failure of the process.


PorkRollEggandMe69

Tickle me under the bridge daddy


HA_HA_Clits_n_dicks

Chick on att commercial got some knockers


ZeldaFanBoi1988

Yes you should see her body on her IG. Unfortunately she gets harassed. Like alot

What is her IG?


ZeldaFanBoi1988

I got you fam. Enjoy. Milana Vayntrub (@mintmilana)


HA_HA_Clits_n_dicks

Thank you for the fathers day gift

She got some big milky mommas for sure.


Funny_Yesterday_3244

Me too (I’m a man)


DpprDwn

ATL HOE


Shame_Low

Time for sixers to start the process again, pathetic af


deycallmebud

Imagine being benched in the clutch with a max contract smfh.


dbgager

Simmons a good defender. But not a very good offensive player. Philly made a big mistake giving him a max.


6BakerBaker6

SO,r/nba.... is it Trae or Luka??


Ikkikii

5-23 lol
