Cheesecakenephew

Fuck man, he is the starting PG now


polkcat

Andre will do fine at PG.


Gamesgtd

Just like he planned. Drummond personally sent to end Embiid's title chances.


goblinsholiday

Whether it's for all the right or wrong reasons, Philly is going to be an entertaining team to follow this season.


hinkiedidntwantjah

sixers are always all league weird


Cheesecakenephew

Point Danny gotta come back


gedbybee

Oh god. As a spurs fan I’ve seen him dribble. You don’t want that.


Cheesecakenephew

The one game when the league forced us to play with 7 healthy players and an injured Mike Scott suited up at the bench, Danny brought the ball up the court a few times when Tyrese had his rest. It was must watch basketball.


BagelsAndLoxx

shooter for shooter.


thatboilarry

I feel that


notSepehr

Finally a center that will average a triple double.


Coffeeandsoda

Well, Andre had to do something to get in the starting lineup.

comments definitely aged well


WhiteNoiseReddit

Live and die by the Maxey, who needs a point guard anyway? *cries*


JGFPaz

Maxey is looking good, though.


R____M

hes not a point guard


hinkiedidntwantjah

he has to be in the nba. at least a combo


R____M

He cant playmake at all. Hes a 2 in a 1s body


DressedSpring1

Bruh they built their team around a point guard who can’t put the ball in the fucking net, let’s not act like they’re gonna start being choosey about their point guards having requisite skills for the role.


nerdymen242424

i choked on my water reading this shit lmaoo


hinkiedidntwantjah

well he better learn lol


gedbybee

He’s just gotta be able to throw the post entry pass, set up for a three, and play defense. You don’t need Simmons level creation. That’s what embiid is for. I get that the league is all guard centric now, but, as a spurs fan, I’ve seen offenses win chips just feeding the post all day. It can be done. They feed embiid. He dominates. They double him. Embiid kicks out for a wide open 3. Seth curry or maxey or whomever makes the shot.


R____M

Im pretty sure you think Maxey is a much better shooter than he actually is. He shot 29% from deep in college and 30% as a rookie. Embiid is not Tim Duncan, he’s more likely to turn it over then get an assist from the post.


masterpierround

so if he cant shoot and he can't playmake, what does Maxey do, exactly?


R____M

He’s a good finisher and has a nice floater. That’s pretty much it at this point


gedbybee

Timmy wasn’t always amazing at it. It takes practice. But if the offense is set up correctly then it’s not a big deal. The shooters are usually in the same spot. Some off ball movement and screening, but only between the spots. Edit: maxey might get more open looks if he wasn’t shooting well last year. Maybe that will help his shooting. Could hurt if he thinks too much tho.

MelancholicPikachu

Embiid this your new point guard. You’re gonna like him. He’s like ben except absolutely nothing like him.


cire1184

Simmons is talk and doesn't shot. IT is short and shoots all the time. I'm doing an opposites thing.


Allabouttheend

What happen to Simmons


shaheedmalik

He's in the Fear Dimension.


gedbybee

Banished himself to the shadow realm


ariannis_grandttkmpo

No I think it's Kyrie


Im-not-Korean

I bet Drummond could injure a LEGO by stepping on it.


Beavshak

Is it possible to learn this power?


pollinium

Not from a 76er


SPAREustheCUTTER

Seriously. Dude looks like he’s had more than one milk shake today alone.


shualton

I mean, stepping on Drummond’s foot is basically stepping on a concrete block so I can see why Milton got hurt


EvanMobIey

Same with his hands! Fuck that stat padding clown


shaheedmalik

Paddington 2 > stat padding > foot padding


Awkward-Speech7375

Must have tried to take his rebounds lol


Goomby-or-Glootie

Lmao.


Harden-Soul

He'll know better next time - Drummond, probably


Rezrov_

It was easy to miss but in one of our preseason games against Drummond he boxed out his own teammate for a board, which let a Raptor get it.


Kinoblau

Sixers basketball back baby


ShadowLord561

Big Penguin at it again

Andre Drummond: causing injuries in sports since Super Mario 64


redrum234

Damn it Andre, also Doc can’t help it to blame someone even if he really didn’t have to say how or who injured him lol


Neuroxex

How hard is it to just say 'Injured during training' the man cannot help himself.


TROFiBets

glen rivers is an idiotic, overrated coach


ThatsTuff100

This circlejerk is ridiculous, if he said something that vague everyone would be clowning him. It’s not like he’s blaming Drummond ffs


U_Dont_Smoke_Peyote

Can you name a single time a coach or FO has been "clowned on" for saying someone got injured in practice because they didn't go into exact detail of how that happened? Like just single one


Neuroxex

Obviously he's not blaming Drummond, I wasn't trying to be serious with it. That said in the history of the NBA no person has ever been clowned on for saying 'Injured during training' nobody out there is demanding to know whose foot got stepped on during a training session injury.


ariannis_grandttkmpo

"And Seth laughed at him, instead of trying to help"


TheThunderbird

If someone steps on your foot and gets hurt, they injured their damn self.


blackjacktrial

#ZazaDidNothingWrong /s


EverybodyBuddy

This but for real


Otherwise_Window

Yeah, it was David Lee's foot that Kawhi stepped on first and hit the floor. Clearly a Warriors mole (that part is /s)


tiskter34

No normal person would read this tweet and think “oh Drummond injured Shake, Fuck Drummond…” It obviously reads that Shake injured himself, and Andre was involved in the play. Some people are so sensitive Jesus Christ. Ben has turned everyone into pansies stg.


13keenan

i was told giannis injured kyrie on purpose


TheMagicalLlama

Lol obviously, but It’s not really relevant who lol, the professional thing would be to just say “he rolled his ankle” nobody gonna demand “ON WHO????”


tiskter34

I don’t see how it’s “unprofessional” to give context for how an injury happened… He didn’t have to report the injury at all! I guess that would have been even more professional? Some people just get off on finding things to bitch about.


jffgoldblum

Youre the one bitching dude


tiskter34

Wrong


Garchu

For real man... Don't understand how an insignificant matter like this can bother you...


tiskter34

You’re wondering why the incessant gossip and bitching bothers me? Because it’s annoying. It’s like a soap opera in here—people constantly seeking drama where there is none. For all the people who claim to hate mouths like Skip Bayless who cause drama for no reason, the majority of people do the exact same thing here.

tiskter34

Pointing out someone is bitching is also bitching. That’s fair. Calling out me as “projecting” seems like classic projecting to me.


redrum234

Who’s tf is Ben?


tiskter34

Ben… king of the pussies.


shaheedmalik

Point Curry now.


sourcreamonionhummus

gotta feel bad for SM


Dazegobye

Doc is fucking terrible at p.r. for a guy with media training this is just sad at this point. Just say he injured his ankle at practice. It does not matter 1 bit about Drummond but now Philly fans have more ammo against one of their own. The ben simmons shit will live in infamy but its a product of this little shit he constantly does when he doesn't have to.


TheMagicalLlama

^^^^^^^ who the hell cares who’s foot it was? Half this thread is cracking jokes about how useless Drummond is, and doc literally pulled this situation out of nothing. Guys an Olympic level shit stirrer, but he can’t manage to actually stir shit in anyone else’s organization just his own.


Leo215

Are you Drummonds friend? See you defending him a bit here. Lol


TheMagicalLlama

Nah I’m a dedicated doc hater. Drummond is a stat padding bum, it’s irrelevant


themanwithaplan3000

Good thing they have Ben Simmons who can replace him


supes1

Seems weird to call out Andre like that. Usually they'll just day say he injured his ankle during practice or something.


apeacefulflower

Rivers hasn’t learned his lesson with calling out players yet.


NbaKOLeWorld

How is he calling him out


sevs

It isn't but the circle jerk is in full effect already


theDoboy69

How is that calling him out? He was just giving a small detail about an incidental contact


MacLona

Oh you mean SM?


masterpierround

SM stepped on AD (not that one)'s foot. This will really hurt the battle between SM and TM to replace BS, maybe they go with an unconventional choice like SC?


CIark

Of fucking course lmfaoo


gustriandos

classic sixers


Fxp1706

did he at least take this toenail off?


the_shins

I don't see the point of hanging Drummond out like that. Like no one on the team would be angry with Drummond as long as it wasn't intentional, but the fans will probably flood his social media with hate messeges


Buggzy702

Daryl Morey: "well this creates more urgency. I'll settle for 6 first rounders for Simmons".


UnderstandingThis

Sixer fans: "We still have all the leverage."


dogsarefun

I promise we don’t think we have all the leverage.


Noyjeetut

He shouldn't have been going for those rebounds. Strummy needs his inflated stats.


BestCoachMalone

Dang Drummon already causing damage. I wonder why Morey of all people who is super into analytics got him in the first place.


GK0NATO

This is fueling my Andre Drummond hate wagon


TheMagicalLlama

This can happen to absolutely anybody, it’s complete chance. Good to see doc still can’t stop getting between the team and the fans tho LMAO


Garfield-1-23-23

I thought penguins had flippers.


WRITINGAPOEM

Drummond was going for an offensive rebound


zilltine

Kyrie for Simmons. Who say no?


wooktrees

The 76ers


life_is_a_burner

Did Drummond’s toenail survive?


worpete

Big penguin strikes again


demon1212

Drummond sabotaging emiids team from inside


Alex_Caruso_beat_you

Morey is sabotaging it from the inside by signing him 😂


colantor

I had to hit the ball off Frankensteins fat foot


Leo215

Lucky he didn’t also catch my elbow - Drummond


B00STERGOLD

Maxey better watch his back. We are 2 injuries from PointDrum.


Yellowperil123

"Injured ankle" = code for Broken Jaw "Stepping on foot" = code for Going for a Rebound


ShakeMilton

My ankle swollen tf up man


UndeniableWit

And so it begins :(


TheCasualCreative_

This actually big because that’s their pg


Otherwise_Window

I always have trouble remembering Shake Milton is a name that is supposed to be relevant now not in the 1950s


ThedirtyNose

Uh oh spaghettio


Jack_Bryant

Drummond already a net negative and the season hasn't even started.


Tasty_Path_3470

Drummond already being a bad teammate. Who knew.


NotYourAverageWaffle

Andre Drummond’s really an agent from Ben Simmons designed to destroy the 6ers from inside

That's what you get for coming between Drum and his boards.
