The 76ers have the fifth shortest odds to win the National Basketball Association championship. But amazingly, half of those games would be without Joel Embiid. No. 7 Milwaukee will meet No. 2 Boston.

Here's why they need to just hand it to him now. In addition to Simmons' $280,000 Ferrari, Fultz also shared footage of a Lambo and a $300,000 Rolls-Royce, though it's unclear which of his teammates were driving those cars.

"I'm so happy", Iverson says. I thought that finishing a few games above.500 and maybe getting the seventh or eighth playoff spot would represent a good year for this squad. "With the way it's been progressing, I'm hopeful I'll be back soon".
He said the eye was still swollen and he doesn't suffer from blurred vision.
led by 41, 70-29. In his absence, videos emerged that showed Fultz had seemingly forgotten how to shoot, with fans breaking down film for any signs of improvement.
