ESPN Radio of the Lehigh Valley Sports Slice



With the Sports Slice, I plan on giving you my brash, harsh, but always honest opinion on the Philadelphia sports scene. There's no smarter sports fans in the world than Philly fans. While many view us as heathens who just boo and throw beer at others, there's a side that many don't see that I'll share with you. Picking up on the nuances of each sport is something we take pride in and there's always a reason behind each boo. So whether you trust the process or not, I got you covered every step of the way from State College to Philly.  – Lucas Gouvalis

I hate to be the wet blanket, but the Sixers as currently constructed aren’t better than the Celtics with Kyrie and Hayward. I believe that even with the natural progression of players like Embiid, Simmons and Saric. What changes that? The addition of Lebron would change that.

  • I was worried that the longer the situation dragged itself out, the more likely that the Sixers would screw this up and Colangelo would keep his job. Luckily, both sides knew it was best to part ways, and Colangelo offered his resignation.
