The whole world thinks the Sixers signing Paul George was a home run.

But the Inky’s Marcus Hayes shit-talks it:

Maybe it’s the fact that nearly $900 million worth of 30-something Phillies either are injured or are nursing injuries: Bryce Harper, Trea Turner, Kyle Schwarber, J.T. Realmuto, and Taijuan Walker.

Maybe it’s just that I never thought Paul George was all that good.

Whatever it is, the fact that the Sixers gave him $212 million over four years at the overripe age of 34, with a track record of consistent injury, just doesn’t sit well.

I hope I’m wrong. Really. The sports books think so: The Sixers’ odds to win the championship went from around No. 6 to No. 2 in just a few hours Monday morning.

It would be nice to finally have a viable 1-A player alongside Joel Embiid, whose legacy is trending toward Charles Barkley’s unfulfilled expectations.

Bless his heart, Tyrese Maxey is not a 1-A; until he becomes a much better defender and passer, he’ll always remain No. 2.
