The Sixer Sense Podcast returns following another Sixers preseason loss to the Boston Celtics. Now 0-2 in the preseason, Lucas Johnson and Jonathan Geib discuss the pros and cons that they saw watching this game as well as any concerns that may leak into the start of the regular season.
Kelly Oubre was the leading scorer for the Sixers in this second preseason game and proved that he is still a walking bucket. Shooting six of eight from the field and four of six beyond the three-point line, Oubre looked comfortable in the Sixers’ offense and is showing why he should compete for starting minutes this season. Should we expect this kind of production from Oubre when the season picks up?
Next up, Doc Rivers, former Sixers head coach, joined Malika Andrews on NBA Today yesterday to discuss a number of things including his relationship with James Harden and the recent comments Harden made about General Manager, Daryl Morey. Doc had some interesting things to say, specifically regarding the Morey situation. Do Lucas and Jonathan think more people within the Sixers organization share Harden’s feelings toward Morey? If so, what does that mean for this team going forward?
The podcast closes out with the guys discussing the ESPN NBA Top 100 Players list that was recently released. Four Sixers players made the list: Tobias Harris at 83, James Harden at 43, Tyrese Maxey at 42, and Joel Embiid at 3. What do you think about the Sixers’ rankings on this list? Most notably, how should Harden feel being below Maxey and a number of other players we assume he thinks he is better than? Lastly, Lucas and Jonathan preview guests who will be joining them on their 300th episode next week. You are going to want to listen to that episode!
