I have not gotten over the trade that sent Nerlens to the Mavs. I know, his contract was up and he wanted big bucks, plus playing time. I know, his knees could become an issue down the road.
But, Nerlens was the perfect compliment to Joel Embiid. With both on the roster, the Sixers could dominate the paint for 48 minutes every night. And if Joel went down, the Sixers would not miss a beat if they started Nerlens. And they may have been able to share the floor. And Nerlens can run the floor.
Nerlens is now playing well for the Mavs, and great for him! He has offered to by cheesesteaks for fans when he visits with the Mavs to take on the Sixers tonight.
Good for you Nerlens!
