  • I confess, I may have been wrong about Jimmy Butler

    When Butler came over to the media, drenched in sweat, he cracked jokes about beating up on Ndiaye. "Hell no," Butler said when asked if he ever lets Ndiaye shoot. The subject then turned to Joel Embiid.

  • Sixers film review: Evolution in some areas, but nagging problems persist

    Sixers film review: Evolution in some areas, but nagging problems persist originally appeared on nbcsportsphiladelphia.com It's been an unusual week for the Sixers since our last film review. Joel Embiid rested for the first time this season, Jimmy Butler missed Wednesday night's loss to the Nets with a strained groin, and the Sixers beat the Pistons twice. At this point in the year, it's rare to see any earth-shattering shifts from a team.

    Since Jimmy Butler was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in mid November, they’re 9-3 and have looked like the team Sixers fans have waited years for. Embiid said recently that he’s been frustrated with how he’s played since Butler joined the team, and also with how he’s been used. Butler didn’t shy away from addressing Embiid’s comments.

  • Joel Embiid: Since Jimmy Butler trade ‘I haven’t been myself’

    Since the Sixers traded for Jimmy Butler they have gone 8-3, outscoring teams by 4.1 points per 100 possessions in that time. Joel Embiid, however, is not comfortable an altered role in a Jimmy Butler world. He said he played like “trash” in his last game and was given Friday night’s game against Detroit off for rest. Embiid’s counting stats are off just slightly since the trade — his offensive and net ratings are up — but from what he told Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer he is not comfortable in a new role that has him on the perimeter more.
