Haha...yes that would be one long bus ride. My son and went down in January to see Mike and the Sixers so we didn’t sign up for the trip. I suspect the product on the floor may be improved so perhaps seeing the game is still worth it.

Moose will make his Lakers debut tomorrow in an immediate revenge game as the Lakers play in Philly. Great timing!!

I really hope Mike is out in better situations to use all of his skills. Floating at the 3-pt line in Philly was not the best use of all of his skills imo.

Mike got zero minutes in last night's game vs. the Celtics. Every other player got some playing time. Looks like Wagner and Williams are taking his minutes. With an expiring contract, looks like Walton is focusing on getting the rookies more minutes at the expense of Mike. Tough break for Mike as he was in a great situation in Philly. It will be interesting to see if he gets a deal in the off season or needs to return to Europe.

Yes, unfortunately Mike is not in the mix in LA. Have to think shooting 33% overall from 3 (28% for the Lakers) and not being quite as good defensively as is needed are the reasons. I think Mike can still play in the NBA and will get another shot next year.

38 6-10 4-6 0-0 3 5
REB AST STL BLK TO PF
8 1 0 1 2 1
+/- PTS

Who needs King James?

BTW, what is Mike's contract situation? Is he a free agent after this season?

I'm going to answer my own question:

2 years ago, Mike signed a 2 year deal at $5M per year guaranteed. So, he will be an unrestricted free agent.

Personally, I would love to see him back on the Sixers next season.
