Tracy McGrady changes his prediction: 76ers, not Celtics, will go to NBA Finals | The Jump
Tracy McGrady changes his prediction: 76ers, not Celtics, will go to NBA Finals | The Jump Philadelphia is usually a really strong town at sports, nicknames gangreen, the Legion of Doom, The Boston, Strangler Wilt, the stilt in the round, mound of rebound Joel embiid. Of course, his nickname himself. The process, which is true, if we’re being honest, impede, hasn’t always gotten it exactly right. Remember when markelle fultz was drafted and Joelle wanted people to call them the fens for fultz and be Daria one weekend in to the new-look post-trade deadline. Sixers and it’s pretty clear, they’re going to be because they are a force to be reckoned with on Friday, the oh, so competitive Western Conference, then, as predicted in this space for Philadelphia, he has been a multiplier just laying his athleticism and a percentage. That is better than yours or Kyrie. Irving also creates the room for everyone else to be more potent making them all the Sixers other weapons. All the more powerful are looks more comfortable. Now it has more space weakness in the disrespect for LeBron James Simmons from Batman. The key is it for everyone else. What’S Simmons over the weekend telling been the coaches staff goal for the final third of their season was for him to become more comfortable shooting by the playoffs have to make the shop. Gender doesn’t think he’s more likely to be struck by lightning. Then he has to have to work Sims on the outside and lo and behold Tracy we got this earlier. Ben teenage were talking about it after the game. I wasn’t shocked, but I wasn’t shocked, but I was getting ready to run to play and then I just literally I just saw the ball go over and then I what it would be like what just happened. Topix count tomorrow. It is inarguable, their star is rising and in a town that is so good with big game, they deserve one. Our friend, Kevin arnovitz is calling the starters D Phillies V, with a pH 5 open, clean and a nod to the NBA’s, most complete starting lineup. This side of Oakland, of course, it’s possible to buy the spring. We won’t need a nickname for them at all. It’S possible we’ll just be calling them Eastern Conference champions, I’m just not creative with that stuff. So I’ll leave that to the crib Nichols. Before I told you, I had Boston Celtics coming out of the Eastern Conference, winning the chance. I did tell you that, however, I didn’t know it was going to be the kind of figure it out. What time are you, but the Philadelphia 76ers today is my favorite team in the east, I’m out of the East and travels the Warriors more than Milwaukee, and the reason is I like. First of all, they got there that the most talented starting five other than Golden State, and they have a lot more shooting that there identify. What I felt like was a problem for the acquired Jimmy Butler and in Harris & Harris. That now only confirm he also can initiate office. He can create office he’s one of the better pick-and-roll players with I didn’t know until he got to the Clippers, initiate him as a pick-and-roll player, because he did it so well with the Clipper and with his ability to stretch the floor is going to open up For Joel embiid, the problem, a lot of teams going to have him plan against the sea, is not your point guard at 6:10 they’re all huge position where you can hide your weakest Defender. You Can’t Hide Your give the finger. Now it’s going to be tough. I have these guys being the best team in the Eastern Conference with everybody making their additions. The Philadelphia 76ers are going to be a problem. In her daily monologue, Rachel Nichols of The Jump details the new “Philly Phive” of Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Jimmy Butler, Tobias Harris and JJ Redick, who won big in 76ers vs. Lakers and appear to be formidable foes in the NBA’s Eastern Conference. Tracy McGrady then goes back on his preseason pick of the Boston Celtics to reach the NBA Finals, saying Philadelphia is the favorite.
