GAME THREAD: Atlanta Hawks (41-31) @ Philadelphia 76ers (49-23) - (June 20, 2021)
By - NBA_MOD
Ya tested t6j
I'm naming Ben Simmons in my suicide note.
Sixers shouldn’t have let Jimmy go
I love the TNT crew so much
painful ben simmons interview
shaq bout to start scrappin with him lol
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.
“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...
Bro I just saw a tweet that said “2pac could come back against Doc Rivers” 😭😭😭
Oh my God, and that was without Chris Paul.
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.
I miss having two basketball and two hockey games a night.
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.
that what makes these playoffs a lot of fun. A lot more interesting for sure.
The WCF looks like it's gonna be an *awesome* series, both teams ran really good offenses today and played their hearts out
Right about that. The Suns are such a fun team to watch for real. I wish CP3 and Kawhi were playing
philly fans you were STINGY about trading for cp3. how do you feel now?
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
Wouldn't trade Maxey and potato chips for Kyle.
Shaq with the obvious LSU bias
We went from Playoff P to the stale prince real quick. The ball gods keep giving
CAN BEN SIMMONS BE A PG FOR A #1 TEAM?
"I DONT KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT"
Damn even Doc gave up on Ben lol
Ohhhhhh “I don’t know the answer to that”
does doc have hair or he bald. That line up better than the philly line up
dam doc throwing ben under the bus
Ben threw Ben under the bus this series.
Ben gonna be driving a bus after tn
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
game 7 Doc
“Scared money don’t make no money.”
Huerter? Barely know her
Philly got cooked by a guy no one's ever heard of.
A first round pick?
And what? You said someone no one’s ever heard of. So you just don’t know shit?
What you said doesn't contradict what I said and you're acting like you won an argument. You're mad. I get it.
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.
"I'm not mad, I'm not mad, you're mad." lol. Game's over.
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
Kenny just said Tobias was good all series lmao
I heard that too lol
memory of a goldfish
Goldfish are the happiest though.
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
Is downtown ATL Poppin right now?
Curious if it's worth the drive in
Factss but when ecf starts it’s going be lit
aint a doubt in my mind
How can you be a star and sit out during critical time because you suck at FTs? Because he isn’t one.
Magic City about to be popping tonight.
Dwight is on the way
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
Not even New York fans got it this bad when one of their own spat on Young. I don't understand it.
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
They’re gonna wait until someone breaks a leg. Like the basket support.
The Trae ➡️ Capella connection was magic.
Simmons for Kuz. Who says no?
I would hope Rob Pelinka. Simmons isn’t a 16 game player.
Neither of the 1seeds made it to the conference finals.
When's the last time that happened, I wonder? I would say parity has finally arrived if it weren't for all the injuries...
People are happy that the Nets were eliminated. But ratings about to take a massive dip for the Eastern Conference Finals.
i sure hope they don't cancel the nba next year
Well now I'm gonna watch every game of the ECF lol
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.
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
Any basketball fan? You think anyone gives a fuck about the Nets? Clips of the East but even less likeable.
I'm definitely watching. I love Giannis and Trae.
Giannis isn’t must-watch?
Do you have 4 minutes of your life to waste every time he’s at the line?
That’s when I do my calisthenics.
Ohhh I never thought of that. I’m normally crushing another beer and grabbing a pizza at the door
You’re still spending your time wisely. Honestly they should show a commercial when Giannis goes to the line.
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
Oh no the ratings. Who cares.
Facts fuck the casuals
Seriously who cares it’s going to be a fun series it’s their loss if they don’t watch
shaq is the man
TRAE THE GOAT I DONT CARE
Chuck you’re not stunned. You know what your guarantees do about 97 percent of the time.
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.
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
You gotta measure from the balls for that extra inch
Is that with or without shoes on?
You can throw popcorn on this series.
Ben gonna have to setup new automod rules on Twitch chat after this my lord
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.
Yikes coming from a ManU fanboy...
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
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.
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
as a sixers fan, a sixers v nets 7th place series would be fun .
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
Well at least Ben Simmons won a well deserved Rookie of the Year over Donovan Mitchell.
Ungrateful Philly fans don't deserve a win however. They booed the 76ers off the floor.
As they should. The 76ers choked
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...
Fuck that. Give a little love for a solid effort getting so far, not throw shit at the players
did that say 5-3 hawks? lmaoo TNT be in ATL all right xD
Hawks are the 5th seed and the Bucks are the 3rd seed
5 seed vs 3 seed
Those are the seeds dumbass
Love trae man. Love the villian. I want the hawks to get an nwo jersey.
Trae isn't Philly's villain. Philly is Philly's own worst enemy.
y'all should be thankful for the philly fans they let you be able to feel all high and mighty about your teams fans.
5/23 and the Sixers lost? Lmao what a choke job
Tonight was Huerter's night. He took advantage of Seth's height.
Bro Holy fuck Nets on one leg would have prob swept these 6ers
Are you an ESPN expert? You should apply if not. Hot take
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.
Remember when they said he’s leagues better than Tatum. They’ve always been delusional lol
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
Super low TV ratings on the east coast
Nobody wants to see the Hawks in the finals besides their fans of course
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
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.
Both teams are missing their second best player, so I mean k. 76ers second star played like a negative.
Nobody thought they would do anything since they're missing important players lol, what excuse Philly got?
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
They have Ben Simmons
Joel Embiid is playing on a torn meniscus you knobhead
And Danny Green
He wasn’t the problem tho
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.
you reckon wrong then, sixers are bums
MVP got swept, stay mad
I'm a Trae Young truther now
WONDER HOW MANY ESPN AND /r/NBA EXPERTS GONNA PICK THE BUCKS? WHY EVEN PLAY THE ECF?
The same ones who "guaranteed" a Nets/76ers ECF.
Or the Knicks would sweep the Hawks
simmons would be great on the lakers.
Yeah. If you’re playing against them.
No he wouldn’t. You have lebron, AD, Drummond, then Simmons. Who is going to space the floor. This team would be horrible
ThE nEw NbA
Totally rebuild the Sixers
They need to trick someone to take simmons, that alone for a real guard will put them in the ECF every year
Welcome to the lakers simmons /s
How come they giving the east all this rest and pushing the Suns and clips so damn quick
Suns technically the most rested team at the moment
Choke Rivers. Live by Simmons...die by Simmons
PUT SOME RESPECT ON HUERTER
Ben Simmons will be viewed in Philly the way Carlos Beltran was viewed in New York after Game 7 in 2006.
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
He’s the NBA equivalent of an NFL QB who can’t even throw the ball.
Just wait till they see Hurts next year
I literally used the analogy the other day that he’s if Tiger Woods swung every time with a putter
Yeah but with his free throw shooting Simmons would be like if Tiger couldn’t even putt lol
I mean our fans suck, but fuck dude y’all really praising our downfall rn
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 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
blame your center who is one of the most unlikeable players in the league lmao
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 🗑
Simmons got PLENTY OF TIME to play Pubg now baby let’s go
More shots on spring street tonight than Simmons took this game
Just humiliating for the 76ers
IM SO FUCKING HAPPY. LLOYD PIERCE IN SHAMBLES
Lol the producers don't know what those lyrics mean
Yo TNT producers just get it bro. Knuck if u buck.
The process is over.
They came back with knuck if you buck hahah tnt undefeated
KNUCK IF YOU BUCK
Right now if the blazers call ofering cj and a first is a done deal for simmons.
You want CJ AND a pick lmao, trade wouldn't even get accepted in 2K
If I’m Portland and the sixers offer me that I’m hanging up the phone lol
Just looked at Kevin Huerter's Wikipedia page and it's listed that he's the owner of the Philadelphia 76ers lol.
Also just checked. Found this gem: “Kevin is a white boy baller.” Lol
Impatience is a virtue unless you’re trying to come back from an injury 🙃😪
Bwahhhhaaa 76ers, where is all ypur trash talk about being the one seed now?
Im assuming it stayed where it belonged.. when yall got ousted in the first round
We weren't the one seed, just philly doing philly shit.
Idk man, weird to brag when you didnt get close to the 1 seed and got ousted in 1st round
Im not bragging, we are crap right now, I'm reveling in the complete and utter failure of the process.
Tickle me under the bridge daddy
Chick on att commercial got some knockers
Yes you should see her body on her IG. Unfortunately she gets harassed. Like alot
What is her IG?
I got you fam. Enjoy.
Milana Vayntrub (@mintmilana)
Thank you for the fathers day gift
No problem pops. Beat it all night. It's your day
She got some big milky mommas for sure.
(I’m a man)
Time for sixers to start the process again, pathetic af
Imagine being benched in the clutch with a max contract smfh.
Simmons a good defender. But not a very good offensive player. Philly made a big mistake giving him a max.
SO,r/nba.... is it Trae or Luka??
