  • The Jump's Cassidy Hubbarth, Ohm Youngmisuk and Chris Haynes discuss whether the Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics will be the best NBA rivalry in 2018-19, with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons taking on youngsters Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum, as well as veterans Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward.

    The crew goes on to discuss Giannis Antetokounmpo's showcase game on Christmas Day (Milwaukee Bucks vs. New York Knicks), and whether there's pressure for Kristaps Porzingis to play in that showdown. They also talk about the Christmas 2018 game featuring Donovan Mitchell and the Utah Jazz vs. Damian Lillard and the Portland Trail Blazers.

    Indiana will make it to the eastern conference!! Don’t know who their playing but they’ll be there! I would say Boston will be there and would like for them to be there, but they have an HIGH volume of injuries that always seem to take place when they need that star power!!!

    Only pressure on KP to return if from non knicks fans. He can sit out all year if he has to

    No. The Celtics will dominate them too much. The Warriors/Rockets will be the best rivalry. Or possibly the Celtics/Warriors will be the best rivalry.

    Philadelphia got WEAKER AT 3-POINT SHOOTING.😞😞😞
    They lost 2 of their best shooters, meaning Simmons has less floor space to operate with.

    I dont get why they have us playing Philly in the 2 biggest games of the regular season. Give us someone competitive, like Toronto, Milwaukee, Golden State, OKC. Shit, I'd even take Indy or Washington over the 76ers. That team is pure trash. 5 games is all it took without 2 All Stars. Only upside is we will shut those cocky Sixers fans up (again) on a nationally televised game, for the world to see. Show those idiots they cant hang with big brody. 2nd or 3rd tier team.

    How can they be considered a rival, when they got bodied in 5 games, and got worse over the summer? At least the Bucks took us to 7. At least Toronto was the 1 seed last year and improved.

    No. Philly is not on our level. Boston v Toronto, or Milwaukee? Yes.
