    Embiid isn't healthy when you need him and has proven that over his career but I'll say he is vastly superior in comparison to Simmons. I'd trade Simmons before Embiid.

      They better not trade Joel Embiid! They will regret it! We will win the East next Season! Go SIXERS!!! #HybridPhillySportsTalk

        Damn thats what im talking about FACTS. With all that high tech gadgets they have at tbe sixers facility where is our kwawi. Bret had six years and countless top ten draft picks. Where's our star? I thought we hired him because he had something to do with kwawis progression. Popa said brown was full of shit im starting to believe that. I was all hype in the offseason. Brown was talking about we're hunting for star talent. What we end up getting Wilson Chandler LOL SMH

          Embiid for AD is the only trade that would be considered. Anything else is a non starter for Embiid. Also Ben is being used wrong in the sixers offense, he should be constantly setting screens for harris and reddick so Simmon's man cant be camped out in the paint waiting for Embiid or butler to drive to the basket. It is really dumb coaching by Brett Brown.

            i want philly to win game 7 but i gotta say embid is a pussy. they win and he’s celebrating having a good time but loses and makes excuses that hes sick. make up your mind dude Cant make excuses when u lose and be all happy when u win Nigga wasnt saying he was sick when he windmilled and airplaned down the court. stop making excuses and win game 7 Nobody wants to see boring ass toronto in the ecf

              Ummm Ben Simmons isn’t a good ball handler but a good to possibly great passer though my opinion

                Simmons and giannis are different... giannis was supposed to be a project, Simmons was good out the gate

                  Let’s not act like Ben Simmons didn’t break his leg and missed his rookie year.... he has injury concerns too... also embiid is a much better player and u could trade Simmons for a developing young pg who CAN shoot... also Simmons can’t even make a mid range shot he can only shoot within two feet which makes him a liability

                      I think that Embiid kid should be traded. With Simmons. For LeBron James.

                        You can’t trade Embiid. And I don’t think Simmons is that good right now but he’s 22-23. He is gonna be dominate when he matures. I don’t think you can trade him either. Appreciate what Joel has right now. He’s a great player and he’s so fun to watch, he makes he game fun. But we don’t know how long he’ll be this way. Big men with injury problems don’t always last. I really hope Joel does cause he has a chance to be great. But just enjoy the game. This team took a top 3 team to 7 games and the only thing these shows wanna talk about are the negatives, and why they don’t mesh well. There are a lot of positives too.

                              Simmons and Embid wouldn't be on the same team if the Sixers didn't tank on purpose. Just Saying

                                Giannis is now where near the passer Ben is I’m sorry he’s not. His passing’s literally compared to Magic’s and Bron’s. Greek doesn’t have otherworldly vision they need to stop this madness. Simmons is a better pure point then him as well. Greek is just far more aggressive but we say the same things about them - a jumper away

                                              Trade neither.

                                              This team went from 28 wins to 52 and then 51.

                                              Ben has been an all star and roty.

                                                  The issue is coaching. Each player needs specific minutes/quarters to shine and be the #1 option depending on their matchup.

Knew they'd probably face the 76ers and got Gasol to counter embiid. The 76ers got Harris who's +- is just atrocious. The Celtics didn't do crap at the deadline and paid the price for it. The better GMs will be at the conference final. Bucks vs Raptors.

Sooooo.... the sixers are going to keep Tobias who has barely shown up in the players vs Butler who has consistently shown up. Okay. Unless Jimmy already said he wanted out, I get it, but if he didn't say that, I don't understand the sixers mindset even more, now.
