    Ben Simmons allergic to crunch time - The Atlantic Files Ep151

    Ben Simmons allergic to crunch time - The Atlantic Files Ep151

    The Philadelphia 76ers' common word of the season so far should be 'underperforming.' Ben Simmons, while still not shooting much in general, is shooting even less when it comes to crunch time and the Sixers have yet to find their actual leader. This week's episode breaks that down as well as more around the Atlantic.

    While looking at the splits for the fourth quarter and the second half, Simmons has a big telltale sign. He isn't performing too well in the second half. What does the mean for the Sixers moving forward as the season progresses?

    Kyrie Irving is putting himself in the same sentence as Julius Erving these days. Almost positive that he's going to need to play a lot more minutes for the Brooklyn Nets if he really wants to make that comparison. On top of that, the Nets are on the brink of the playoffs in general and may even have to start hanging out at home earlier than expected.

    RJ Barrett, while hurt at the moment, is a bright spot for the New York Knicks. He's found himself near the top of the current crop of rookies even though his shooting hasn't been the best. He's scoring at a decent clip and is playing the most amongst all of the rookies.

    Finally, we have to appreciate the body of work Kyle Lowry is putting together this season for the Toronto Raptors. At the age of 33, he's leading the league in minutes per game and has been a huge reason that the Raptors are at the top of the division. Could he be trade bait as well?

    Topic rundown:


    2:15 - Brooklyn Nets and Kyrie Irving's higher thinking

    16:00 - Philadelphia 76ers and Ben Simmons second half splits

    25:45 - New York Knicks and RJ Barrett's chances to win Rookie of the Year

    29:20 - Kyle Lowry's impressive season for the Toronto Raptors

    Are the Celtics real contenders? - The Atlantic Files Ep150

    Are the Celtics real contenders? - The Atlantic Files Ep150

    We're approaching that time of the NBA season to start wondering whether teams are real championship contenders or not. Enter the Boston Celtics. Their current record would say that they are, but when watching them against the cream of the crop, does that match the record?

    Jayson Tatum, Kemba Walker, and Jaylen Brown are all enjoying some great seasons respectively. They've formed a great big three so far and have gotten the team to a nice 26-11 record. This is after losing an all-star center and a superstar point guard. Cause for some celebration? Yes! Cause for title hopes? Pump the brakes a little there, Beantown.

    Joel Embiid is now out for at least one or two weeks with a torn ligament in his ring finger. He underwent successful surgery and will be re-evaluated in one to two weeks. This means we may see the best version of Ben Simmons that only appears whenever Embiid is out. Can Simmons help right the ship with Al Horford as the starting center now or will we continue to question everything about the team?

    Finally, we have some curious cases with the rest of the league. The Toronto Raptors are a very good team comprised of an up-and-coming star, an aging one, and a very good supporting cast. Is that good enough?

    Then there are the Brooklyn Nets. Kyrie Irving returning to the court is great news, but will that result in more wins? Then, of course, the New York Knicks are...well...the Knicks.

    Topic rundown:


    2:00 - Boston Celtics contenders or pretenders?

    9:20 - Philadelphia 76ers sinking odds and Joel Embiid injury

    15:00 - Toronto Raptors hustling their way to a top seed

    21:38 - Kyrie Irving returns

    Joel Embiid tired of losing - The Atlantic Files ep149

    Joel Embiid tired of losing - The Atlantic Files ep149

    Here we are, over a week removed from the Philadelphia 76ers dismantling the Milwaukee Bucks on Christmas Day. Joel Embiid is talking about how losing is taking a toll and making vague comments about specific players on his team. How much can change in a week is pretty amazing.

    That being said, on this week's episode of the Atlantic Files, Alex talks about Embiid's comments, how true they may be, and some of the other comments from the rest of the team. Josh Richardson says they don't have enough accountability, Al Horford says he's very limited in what he can do, and Brett Brown says they won't be able to click their heels come playoff time and all of a sudden perform.

    After that, there are some rumors flying around and news to talk about. Kevin Love is showing some frustration in Cleveland. The team isn't doing well and he still has a lot left to offer. He was visibly upset in their latest game and the coach was only about half on his side. 

    Andre Drummond is the first big name to be thrown into the trade rumor spotlight. Two teams in the Atlantic are even rumored to be the ones that could trade for him. This begs the question, is he worth trading a lot of assets for?

    Finally, Darren Collison wants to come back to the NBA, but only to a team that plays in Los Angeles. Wouldn't we all?

    Topic rundown:


    1:50 - Joel Embiid comments and Sixers news

    12:00 - Sixers clicking their heels

    18:00 - Kevin Love frustrations

    21:30 - Andre Drummond trade rumors and possible destinations

    33:18 - Darren Collison wanting to go to LA
