My Overview:

Joel Embiid playing exclusively in the post exposed one of Atlanta’s major weaknesses! This is the second time this year were the opposing center had a career night against y’all. 👇🏽

NIKOLA JOKIC VS ATLANTA HAWKS (1-6-20)

The Philadelphia 76ers unleashed their beast. Atlanta started double teaming Joel Embiid. But that didn’t work. He would kick it out to shooters. Also players were able to slash to the rim because of clear driving lanes created by Joel Embiid. Or they would pass the ball back to Embiid for a repost. I believe that was the game plan going into last night’s game. A formula for success in my opinion! Now play like this against a good team.

For the Sixers going forward, will they continue with this formula of using Joel Embiid more in the post?

Injury:

Ben Simmons (Out indefinitely)

NBA (bballscholar) Terminology :

Repost– This is when a player in the post passes it out to a wing player. Then the post player can now establish a deeper post position. The wing player then passes it back to the post player as he has deeper post position with a 1 on 1 match up.

1. Giannis Antetokounmpo

2. Derrick Rose

3. Carmelo Anthony

4. Vince Carter

5. Damian Lillard

6. Anthony Davis

7. Kemba Walker

8. Paul George

9. Devin Booker

My List:

A lot of these players I grew up watching and I can appreciate their body of work.

I believe if you are capable of playing at least 10+ years in the nba. That alone is a nice accomplishment of durability. Your body has so many years it can perform at a high level.

19-20 EAST & WEST ALL STAR RESERVES

EAST RESERVES:

WEST RESERVES:

WEST > EAST

THE WEST ON PAPER LOOKS LIKE THE BETTER TEAM. ALSO THEY HAVE THE MORE EXCITING PLAYERS TO WATCH.

I AM DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE A LOT OF PLAYERS THAT I WANTED TO SEE DID NOT MAKE THIS YEARS ALL STAR GAME.

MY BELIEF ON THE BIGGEST ALL STAR SNUB:

EAST BIGGEST SNUB:

BRADLEY BEAL

WEST BIGGEST SNUB:

DEVIN BOOKER

NBA ALL STAR FACTS:

WHICH PLAYER DID YOU WANT TO SEE IN THE ALL STAR GAME?

I PERSONALLY WANTED TO SEE DERRICK ROSE IN THE ALL STAR GAME. I BELIEVE THE FANS WOULD OF WANTED HIM OVER KYLE LOWRY. BUT THAT IS JUST MY OPINION. KYLE LOWRY’S TEAM IS 2ND IN THE EAST, SO THAT IS WHY HE WAS REWARDED.
