.@stephenasmith thinks there is an incentive if the 76ers sit Ben Simmons this season. "If things don't work out, could James Harden decide to do that, to reunite with Daryl Morey? You damn right! Is Daryl Morey banking on something of that magnitude? You damn right he is."

.@minakimes responds to Stephen. A's doubts about Lamar Jackson. "It's like the goal posts on Lamar Jackson get moved so many damn times they're in the bleachers at this point! I feel like we can't just appreciate his greatness. It's constantly nitpicking over and over!"
