    Guess Philly needs to put the rookie center on the Ty Lawson Designated Driver Plan.

    Philly doesn't seem to have luck with their centers, so many off-court issues with him and Embiid.

    His self esteem must be really low.

    Getting the hell out of Philly?

    Would have been understandable if the Ben Franklin Bridge didn't end up in...Camden, Jersey AKA the city with one of the highest crime rates in the US

    I think Embiid is done with NBA and other than him, Sixers don't really have anything else that would elevate them once they decide they're done tanking.

    Philly's youngsters are going to continue to run amok given how the 76ers are devoid of veteran leadership.

    Nerlens Noel - Too busy in the treatment room
    Joel Embiid - Too bust on twatter
    Jahill Okafor - Too busy speeding on the highways and beating up people at the club

    Philly needs some veteran leadership. But that might lead to some wins which they don't want.

    When you have built a culture of failure and losing, when your 'stars' get accustomed Philly will always and continue to have these problems

    When you know the team doesn't care how you perform on the court.. they will also know the team wont care how they perform off the court

    This is something their analytics wont detect and why Hickies 'plan' will never work.

    Even if they get the next potential Michael Jordan the 76ers will continue to suck and the 'Next Michael Jordan' will never live up to his potential if he instead were on a team like the Spurs

    Wow 108 is 173 kph ?:eek::eek: On a bridge?

    The guy needs an intervention pronto. First he had a gun pulled on him, then he sped 173 (Which is insane on it's own) on a freaking bridge then he went underage to a bar and punched a guy over a girl. I don't care that he's 19 (almost 20) instead of jahlil he will be jailil pretty soon if not dead. Seems the money got to his head and the lack of veterans doesn't help at all either. He also SHOULD get suspended for his own good. It will help him understand that his behaviour has repercussions.

    I actually had this happen to me once when I was a teenager. Scary as hell.

    DeMarcus Cousins is more stable than Okafor. What a world.
