On today’s episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Steve, Dan and Emily discuss all things Sixers Summer League. From Tyrese “Too Good” Maxey’s deft performance in games 1 and 2, to former podcast guest BBall Paul Reed’s standout play, to the unconscious shooting of Isaiah Joe, there’s much to discuss. The trio also breaks down the pluses and minuses from rookie guard Jaden Springer’s four games in Nevada.
Then, the gang breaks down this week’s whispers surrounding Ben Simmons’ apparent discontent with the Sixers and specifically head coach Doc Rivers. How do Maxey’s apparent strides impact our hosts willingness to trade Simmons in a non-Damian Lillard deal? To what do they attribute Joel Embiid’s unsigned supermax extension?
Plus: they react to Danny Green’s midweek quotes, the Clippers-Grizzlies trade from Sunday night, and the finale of The Bachelorette.
