    Will Embiid be healthy through out.
    Who is the BEST PLAYER in this series. . . . Embiid or Brunson?

    I think Philly definitely has the best TWO EMBIID and MAXEY > Brunson and ???

    But NY plays strong Team Ball
    Let's not forget ROCKETS LEGEND ISIAH HARTENSTEIN!!

    I’m rooting for Rockets legends Lowry and Batum on the 76ers.

    And Rockets legend Hartenstein on the Knicks.

    As always, I’d like a 7 game series for fun as long as it doesn’t involve our Rockets, haha.

    Brunson vs Maxey should be fun.

    I can't believe that the last time these two teams met in the playoffs was 1989.

    This should be fun.

    Embiid is done. He's Greg Oden now.

    I thought the Knicks were idiots for not tanking the last game, but silly me to assume Embiid wouldn't get injured once again...trying to do too much as usual

    Knicks raised their intensity, were able to junk the game up in the 2nd quarter and the Sixers crumbled. This happened before Embiid went down.

    With Embiid out, Knicks vs. Celtics ECFs is now a lock. No way he can return this season.

    EDIT: Good to see Embiid back in. Sixers are still in trouble because Brunson won't lay another stink bomb in the 2nd half.

    Embiid is going to require knee replacement surgery in like a decade.

    It would help if he doesn't make high-risk plays. Learn something from Tim Duncan, who was about as athletic as Embiid but played a safe game. It would also help if he learned how to land safely. He landed on his leg with force. Of course, he could have avoided landing that way altogether if he took a simple hook shot from that distance.

    rooting for Embiid is almost as bad as rooting for injury prone T-Mac for a fan

    Different team with Embiid
    I have grave concerns that he makes it the whole playoffs

    Or jokic

    Embiid and Jokic have similar body types, but Embiid's game is so much more based on crazy **** like that off the backboard dunk. Just don't think that style of play is compatible with 7'0" 280lbs if you want to stay healthy.
