    Maybe I'm just getting a little sentimental in my old age. Maybe it's because I look out the window and what I see — sharp sunshine, long shadows, orange and brown colors scattered across the back yard — yells "Thanksgiving” to me. Whatever it is, I am in an especially thankful mood. And it goes…

    1. On this day let’s give thanks that our lottery pick

      * puts on sunglasses*

      didn’t turn out to be a turkey

    2. Anyone else see the video of an apparently drunk Jahlil Okafor punching a guy in the face outside a Boston bar last night? You think, between Embiid’s reported attitude problems and this situation, the Sixers might start to re-think their “rebuild with no veteran leadership” strategy? By the way, it was nice to see Melo get in Smith’s face when Smith started mouthing off to Porzingis last night.

      I think everyone had doubts about Philly going without a veteran presence. That can’t be an easy job for Brett Brown to control that situation. It doesn’t help when you have Duke fans making friggin Sarah McLoughlan videos about saving Jahil.

      I was all over the Melo and Smith confrontation. Great leadership from Melo to go into bat for the rookie. I don’t think we have really seen that from Melo before, so it really solidifies the reports coming out that this group have bonded and are playing for each other.

    4. Jahlil Okafor is punching fans in Boston because he wants to be a Knick and knows the only way for that to happen is to punch Celtics fans.

      On a more serious note, it sucks that Jahlil Okafor got drafted to Philly. They honestly need to fire Sam Hinkie because he flat out sucks at rebuilding. He’s been on the job for how many years and his team can’t do better than 0-16? He’s the reason why Dolan/Isiah thought “you can’t rebuild in a town like New York.” He’s terrible.
