The Philadelphia Boomers

An extremely unlikely hypothetical:

The 76ers currently have

Simmons
Thybulle
Broekhoff

Let's say they draft Josh Green at pick 20 (likely).

They waive some players to free up some cash. Then they do a multi team trade of Embiid for Ingles, Baynes, Delly, Mills and Maker (very unlikely!).

They sign Bogut for the playoffs as insurance.

Then we have the Philadelphia Boomers. A playoff team that would likely get bounced in the first round of the playoffs. We decide to add in Kyrie for Harris and picks and we are a legit contender.

Kyrie Irving injured and not Australian. I won't even mention the other reasons.

They could draft Makur Maker in second round and bring back Jonah Bolden.

. Don't forget Gleeson as assistant coach and Cadee on a two way deal.

I would probably take out extremely highly unlikely and put in totally impossible!!!
Better chance of getting an only European team in Dallas.

And that should be enough to end thread.
Irving has played for U.S.A. already.

Doesn't mean he can’t play for Philadelphia on an all Australian lineup

Yeah so that would mean he isn't a Boomer and doesn’t make the team anymore Boomer than it would without him.

The comment was he wasn't Australian, not he wasn’t a Boomer. Reading what has been previously written is generally a prerequisite to commenting

Interesting debate, did we miss the boat on that?
Should we have offered him Boomers gig at the first opportunity after he turned 16??

Thybulle born in USA, lived in Aus from ages 2-9 obtaining Aussie citizenship in that time, went back to USA, grew up there and can now represent either USA or Aus. Seems he has chosen aus.

Could be because Australia are more likely to select him (Thybulle) than are the US. Especially with Brown (maybe) doing a Lemanis.

So Thybulle is basically in the same boat as Kyrie but has 0% chance of representing America yet we have different opinions on him representing us.

Thybulle wants to play for Straya. Irving doesn't.

Think the implication is that we take what's left over. Maybe, and I'm sure that a few great teams could be constructed using other left-overs from the US.

Certainly, Thybulle won't win us the gold but IMO, he'd definitely be a bonus for the Boomers.

Thybulle is a legit player. Can see him being a stud in a couple of years. His defence is incredible
