Who is Jason McIntyre and why is he talking about Embiid, Harden, and the Philadelphia 76ers?
Wow. Just when you thought the national media couldn’t get any more stupid, in comes this random guy named Jason McIntyre. Full disclosure: I have no idea who this guy is and honestly, I hope I never see his name ever again. What a total moron.
For whatever reason, this no-named loser was on Undisputed today speaking about the Philadelphia 76ers, Joel Embiid and James Harden.
There’s a lot to unpack here, but go ahead and watch this video clip of Jason McIntyre talking about the Philadelphia 76ers.
Bozos huh? Damn Jason, I don’t even know where to begin. Let’s start with the obvious.
You’re not Skip Bayless. No one knows who you are or why you’re even on television. I guess I can throw you a bone and say congratulations for sounding like a total moron and getting the attention of 76ers fans, but honestly I’m hesitant to even do that.
Also, you were telling this to your kids? I’m about to call child services. No one should be raised by such an idiot. This might be the dumbest rant I have ever listened to.
To talk with such conviction about how the Philadelphia 76ers are not the favorites in the East is just stupid. We all know it’s only been two games but the drastic changes to the 76ers offense, even with such a small sample size, is something that shouldn’t go unnoticed.
Joel Embiid, James Harden, and Tyrese Maxey have combined for 176 points in their first two games together. The spacing on the court is ridiculous. The transition offense and open looks that every. single. player. has gotten over the past two games is perfection.
Honestly what the hell is Jason McIntyre even talking about? Two iso-players that can’t work together? Seriously?
From here, we have to assume that Jason McIntyre has never watched basketball.
The pick-and-roll and dribble-handoffs are working perfectly Jason.
There’s so much room to operate with Harden as a consistent threat to shoot the basketball. The Sixers also have lightning-quick Tyrese Maxey and a newfound lane cutter in Matisse Thybulle as options if needed.
Embiid knows it too you dummy.
There are countless examples of this working over and over again. We’re only two games into the Harden-era buddy. All of these schemes are just going to get better, and I’m already confident enough in saying that this pairing is reaching “unstoppable” levels.
As for the playoff stuff, sure Doc Rivers has struggled in the playoffs. Now with this team, all he needs to do is stagger the starters and we’re good to go. It’s really that easy. The only thing that can slow down the Philadelphia 76ers is health and injuries.
Embiid was sick as hell in the Raptors series and played last year on a bad knee. Doc Rivers was dealing a ball handler that couldn’t shoot the basketball. Ben Simmons literally can’t perform in the playoffs. He was terrible and provided no spacing and was the least threatening player in NBA history on offense.
That all changes with Harden on the court you bozo.
