    If this doesn't happen now it is your fault. I hope you are willing to accept that.

    15 years too late if true, as we should have drafted him over Bender. Kind of surprised that he would want to come here. Figured he'd definitely want to go to a title contender. He obviously has some game left and would make us a better team.

    What happens when we sneak into the playoffs as the 8 seed and get a bad draft pick for no reason?

    The 8th seed last year got the 15th pick in the draft. Not terrible at all

    Yeah, that's the problem. I don't think anyone on this board is as big of a jerk in person as they come across on here. Except maybe Nuntius. Dude is impossibly nice.

    I don't really feel like the 15th pick is a "bad" pick (thats what the 8th seed in the east got last year) and it shows our supporting cast is better than what people here originally thought, so isn't it a good thing our supporting cast is good enough to make the playoffs even without PG?

    Well if the alternative is the 9th spot sign me up for 8th.

    I understand that the NBA is reworking the draft system and a bad record does not necessarily translate into a high draft pick. The 76ers are fighting this new draft system because they would have expected to have a very high pick, given they expect to have a poor record this year. Does anyone have more info on how this new draft system would work?

    Does this confirm that the franchise was willing to spend just had a number for lance?

    If you were waiting for someone more credible...


    I know it doesn't confirm he is signing, but there it is.

    It isn't as good as, say, the 12th pick, and for what? A few wins here and there, a playoff stomping, and then we are worse off for when the games actually matter, in 2015-2016. But whatever, I've already made my thoughts on tanking known. I just hate this move for both parties if it ends up happening.

    yep bc that 12th pick will get so much playing time on the team next year... 4 or 5 spots doesn't mean ****. If we tanked and got 5th or 6th pick the year we drafted PG then this team wouldn't be what it it

    If you believe the front office they would have picked Paul George anywhere from 2nd to 10th. If we had tanked in 08-09 we might have ended up with Steph Curry instead of Tyler Hansbrough. I have faith in the front office to draft well, and the better the pick the better the chance is we get a good player.

    something called not losing a lot of money as an owner, saw earlier today that we'd lose 17.4 mil in revenue by losing PG for the season. Now, if we sign Marion, we will make the playoffs and we won't lose as much

    I'll still wait for a more credible source to say he's officially signed. Glad Stein could at least confirm he met with Larry earlier
    Stop quoting people I have on ignore!
