You can only have a top 5 draft pick for two straight seasons. Meaning, Sixers had a top 3 pick two years ago, they had a top 3 pick last year, now if they were to be a lottery team again this year, the highest they would be able to pick is #6 overall and nothing lower.

Why you mad lol

At least the Sixers aren't tanking this year. Will have some respectable talent on the court

No reason for me to be mad. Sixer fans should be man. I'm just laughing.

In defense of knowledge on the debate of Embiid vs. Towns...from the 2015-2016 thread...

There is no question that Embiid was considered a bigger and better prospect than Towns coming out of the draft. Embiid was being compared to Olajuwon. If it wasn't for the injury...there was a very good chance he would have been selected over the most hyped prospect since Lebron (Wiggins).

Towns has just been so incredible and smashed all the expectations everyone had of him and Embiid has been injured since he got drafted. That's why this debate sounds ridiculous. We will find out what Embiid has...but Towns is on another level or 4 from his draft profile in just his 2nd year. He has made ppl forget a little about Anthony Davis...that's how amazing he has been.

Really hoping for Embiid to stay healthy and play up to his pre-draft ability in his first year and improve. If he does that - I think this debate will once again be worth having. Till then...it's Towns all the way at that position.

Knowledge is a fan of the Sixers...I can understand his excitement.

Embiid looks good. Saric too. Embiid, Saric, Noel, and Simmons

Trade Okafor for a PG or SG who can shoot and play defense.

He looks good. Hope he stays healthy. Obviously he has ridiculous potential, would like to see him play and improve.
