    I was really hoping the Hinkster would land Embiid, but way later. I guess there’s no way we’ll ever know what real offers Hinkie may have received to move down, and certainly we’ll never know how far Embiid really would have slid.

    Regardless of one’s unrealistics hopes and dreams, there’s no question that if you wanted to land a guy with the potential to be a Big 3, Lebron-Dwyane-Bosh kind of player at some point, then with the 3rd pick Embiid clearly was that guy.

    In terms of when the team will actually contend, I have to think Hinkie knows he won’t get a chance to live out his dream, if the team isn’t contending for a playoff spot in Year 3 (2015-16). Why plan for the far future with all these awesome young assets, if it’s all for the next guy to enjoy? Forget the fans… no way a hedge fund guy accepts futility 3 years in a row.
