The 76ers blew their shot at an Eastern Conference Finals on Sunday night.  They were supposed to be throwing down with the Celtics for a shot at making it to The Finals, now that LeBron took his talents to Los Angeles.

Both teams were bounced and nobody took Philadelphia’s loss harder than Joel Embiid.  There are plenty of ideas floating around about how to fix the Sixers for a run next season.

None are more ridiculous than Colin Cowherd’s.  His idea is for the Sixers to trade away their best player.

“My theory on this: You keep Jimmy Butler, you keep Ben Simmons, you trade Joel Embiid and get shooters. Don’t overpay for Tobias Harris. You keep J.J. Redick.”

This is one of those takes that Cowherd is throwing out there for attention.  There’s no way that he actually believes this. 

If anyone needs to go, it’s Ben Simmons and his refusal to shoot three pointers.  It’s beyond absurd that he’s an NBA point guard who won’t shoot threes.
