Wow. That is huge for Philly. They don't give up any of their top guys and acquire an All-NBA caliber player. Does this make them the favorite in the East? Or is Toronto still too far ahead?

Between the completely unimaginative design and the "LOSS UNS" design fail, we have the worst of the bunch here, IMO.

OKC's are heinous, too.
Most are TERRIBLE. MIA, DEN, OKC, SAS and TOR are good. NOLA could have been nice if the numbers weren't to the left (why?!).

SO much randomness (hahaah LAC), blandness and weirdness. They have no idea what they are doing at Nike.
I really like the Warriors ones. They always have the best gear. I don't know why the Knicks went away from their NYFD unis from last year. The Wolves' "Prince" themed unis are pretty cool, too.
I kind of like the Miami ones. I mean, I don't think they look great, but they are so fitting for the city.
You should have seen their court last night.

I feel bad for Fultz. I doubt the presence of Butler will be good for him. I also wonder whether Butler will eat up minutes that would have gone to JJ Redick. Does he still have a role there?

On paper Butler is great for Philly. But I look at their roster and I still see a lack of shooting. I wonder whether they can really contend for a title if so few of their players can hit 3s. I think I still like Boston and Toronto better but will have to wait and see.

Fultz is probably available for a mid first rounder plus Daniels. With Fultz off their books they can sign another max player in the summer.

I don't hate butler, but the 76ers going to miss Covington and Saric. There are probably some conflicted fans in Philadelphia.

I dont like the trade for the Sixers at all. I get Butler is a talent, but can't see how he meshes with Embiid and Simmons and their personalities.

I think Philly has to make a trade like that if it's on the table. I don't fault them for it. I just think they will need to pick up 1-2 shooters during the season on small contracts. Maybe a guy like Kyle Korver will get bought out by Cleveland or somebody like that.

Yes let's bring another player that can't shoot into the mix.

Good for the Wolves, who saw they had a fundamental problem and made a move to correct it.

That trade is a pretty good deal for both sides because of Butler's dickheadish attitude and Thibs obvious refusal to make a deal for long term assets like draft picks.

We could use some of this right about now:

There’s more white players on the court for the opposing team than there is on any entire roster of a team today.

I'd be on the phone offering something up for either Covington or Saric. Jackson, Ariza and a pick? Saric is the 4 we need next to Ayton and what we hoped Bender would be. Covington would instantly upgrade the defense and be a knockdown shooter for us. He could also play some PF for us in spurts.

Statistically, Fultz is shooting better than most of our guys.

Anyone see Tony Parker play so far this year? Not as washed as some thought and would've been a lot more useful here for us than Ariza's been.

I’ve noticed that. Turns out he would have been a great acquisition to start at point and mentor our young French PG.
