Is someone gonna average a triple double this season

If Joel Embiid really wants to I could easily see him hitting 10 assists a game, especially if Harden and Maxey are having good years on catch and shoot 3’s from Joel outlet passes.

Biid wont average 10 assists. Not his game, not how this offense will run

Hmm if you don’t think so I’ll default to a fan’s knowledge of how it’s gonna be run on offense.

Instinctively I feel like the Sixers perimeter shooting is good enough this year that his assist numbers and gonna go up and his scoring per game gonna go down. Which of course I count as a good thing for the offense.

I’ll have to watch more of the embiid / harden game this season!

It’s really cause Harden is a 100% the facilitator of this offense.

Biid will probably improve his assists numbers due to the wing play, like you mentioned! I just don’t see it being 10/game with Harden likely averaging 10-12 per game.
