    There is literally noone in the league with Joel Embiid's ceiling. You hold on to that guy for as long as you can before moving him.

                  Brett Brown's first two seasons were bogus af and the organization set him up for failure. Then this year they gave him a starting 5 that only played about 20 games together. He definitely deserves a full season with this unit before we judge him. AND PLEASE GET THE MAN A WORTHY BENCH!

                        Simmons need the lane and post to be a scoring threat. Everything is done to keep their best PG on the floor. SAS WTF? lol
                        Philly front office should've traded one of them while they're still worth anything

                            If Philly keep their starters, improve their bench and get a full season playing together to develop chemistry they will be the best team in the East come playoffs.

                                      ben Simmons doesn't have a jumper. why can't people understand that all he's doing is taking embiid's spots. my guy can't shoot the ball so he is constantly in the fuckin paint.

                                        Obviously Brett Brown wanted to stretch that physical Raptors defense to offer some driving space to Simmons and Butler. But Raptors were too good, to strong, too long, too mobile on the perimeter that the paint never really opened up. And Brett Brown didn't understand he had to change his plan and try to play Embiid essentially in the post. Each time he got the ball down low he was double-teamed. And although it's not easy to play with Gasol and Ibaka's arms on your face, that was the only option for Philly to draw the defense and find room on the weak side with ball mouvement. Embiid has good vision and can pass the ball. They should have try harder. But anyway, I think Simmons's lack of shooting and lack of time to build team chemistry with Butler and Harris were never goin' to make it work enough..

                                                He deserves no credit for making the playoffs, it's harder to miss the playoffs than make it because 16 out of 30 teams make it

                                                  @Polo Lavish how, 16 teams make playoffs, 14 teams miss, and with this talented roster there was no way we were going to miss the playoffs, so how does he deserve any credit, and if you disagree with something I say then actually give an argument, just telling people that thier stupid isnt much of one.

                                                          No coach stays forever. Brett Brown should have been fired. What team has effectively 3 shot clock violations IN A ROW at the end of a game 7? Embiid in the post? Yes that is a problem. Another bigger problem is Embiid's immaturity. Mr "I play my best when I am having fun" Either have fun every night or take a different approach.

If there was a conflict between Brown and Simmons, the 6ers would get rid of Brown before Simmons. And until Simmons gets a jump shot, Brown has no choice but to put Embiid at the 3 cause he shoots better than the teams "point guard"

He is a career loser, nothing amazing, awful game calling and terrible lineups, terrible uses of Embiid on the perimeter too often, team has 0 character, unprepared, got a shot clock violation out of a timeout amongst 3 huge plays in game 7 against the Raptors. Brett Brown is an awful coach, what has he done as a head coach ever, btw this is his first head coaching job.
                                                                                        His resume is : first 5 years of historic losing , blew it on draft picks ( Nerlens,Okafor,Fultz etc.) out coached by Brad Stevens in 1st playoffs, and then was given the leagues 2nd best lineup and 2nd rd exit, and player development ? yeah right look at how much his star guard Ben Simmons has developed... GTFO lol BRETT BROWN should've been fired years ago...
