Again…IF Embiid is healthy

Today was another potentially exciting day for the Philadelphia 76ers as they attempt to replace players who are bad at basketball with ones that are good.

The Sixers signed J.J. Redick to a one-year contract worth $23 million. Redick is a sniper, averaging 15 points per game last year with the Los Angeles Clippers, while drilling 42.9% from beyond the arc.

“It’s where I wanted to be,” he told ESPN in a text message.

This could be wonderful for the Sixers, IF…

It’s the IF that comes up every time with the Sixers. Whether it’s Markelle Fultz or Ben Simmons or Redick…IF Joel Embiid stays healthy.

Not much else matters; Embiid is the lynchpin. IF he’s healthy and gives you 60+ games, the Sixers could make a deep run in the Eastern Conference playoffs. I’m being serious, they could be that good…

…IF Embiid healthy.
