At the Philadelphia 76ers, everything went so well, but now the understaffed team is losing five games and one Sixers legend has had enough.

For Charles Barkley, the message was “clear and simple” in the middle of the Philadelphia game Utah Jazz.

“You have to go ahead,” he said ESPN “The NBA is TNT,” he refers to his ongoing Ben Simmons win.

The Australian scorer was again fined for not taking part in a six-match trip to Philadelphia, and Agent Rich Paul said he was not yet mentally ready to return to action.

The Sixers have been firmly waiting for the real game to turn a piece into the future trading table before the move, but Barkley is losing patience.

After a tough season, the 76ers have now dropped four games in a row without the middle Joel Embiid, who came with the NBA’s Covid-19 health and safety protocol.

Matisse Thybulle (protocols) and Danny Green (left femoral tension) were also sidelined on Wednesday.

But it’s Abbiid’s absence that has recently shown exactly the period of time Philadelphia would rely on Simmons (or his replacement) to fix the loose.

“This would be a tough game even with Joel Embiid,” Barkley said.

“The Sixers need to stop fooling around. They need to get this Ben Simmons thing over because if you have other players to switch to Simmons, the team can be competitive.

“It’s going to be an elephant in the room all year, and you can see he got banned because he didn’t go on a trip. The marriage is over. Let it be.”

It is, of course, easier said than done.

However, Barkley is not alone in believing that the Sixers are better off making compromises in the short term.

“This is a bad divorce,” Reggie Miller said ESPN broadcast from Wednesday’s match against Jazz.

“You have to cut losses, cut the line. I’m not saying this has to be done tomorrow. There’s guilt on both sides. You have to send him west. That would be a condition.

“I understand their tough attitude because this is a guy who is committed.

– He has one year from the five-year maximum contract, so it’s a bad precedent for players who move forward whenever they’re not happy with the situation. I understand the position coming from Philadelphia because it is a bad look.

Sixers boss Daryl Morey has already shown he’s ready to wait for the ideal deal, no matter how ugly the situation gets.

This ideal piece doesn’t look closer to presenting itself, although there could be room to move in the struggle of the Trail Blazers, Kings, and Celtics.

A report from Philadelphia and Boston was released last week in an effort to get Jaylen Brown ashore, but it was quickly shut down.

Damian Lillard is a dream come true, but Portland superstar is still committed to the series.
