it is bold for sure. Chances of this being true at the end of season are the same as me becoming next US president (I am Canadian)

This is maybe not an extreme bold prediction, but Matisse Thybulle starting over Tobias Harris at SF, maybe? This will give their bench more firepower knowing what Tobias can do on both ends which is a lot of scoring and grabbing decent amount of rebs. Tobias will still get the large chunk of minutes, but it'll be split up between Matisse and Al Horford giving Matisse atleast 25-28 minutes just enough to be relevant in fantasy. I think this guy will have a major impact defensively for a very long time.

 

The next Shawn Marion, now that's extremely bold.

I actually think the reasoning for Thybulle starting makes sense. The 76ers could use Harris as a scorer off the bench early in the game to counteract their lack of depth. BUT, I think they still play Harris a lot more than Thybulle and that Harris plays a lot with the starters too. Thybulle hitting 25-28 minutes seems unlikely, but I don't see anyone on their bench that is definitely ahead of Thybulle in the rotation if he plays well.

They're going to stagger their stars like any other team, but to expect anyone besides Embiid, Simmons, JRich, Horford, and Harris to get even noticeable usage doesn't make sense outside of injury.  The only saving grace is they're notably a fast-paced, transition friendly team.  If you read the press from Brown and the Sixers, they love his defense and want it to be a staple of their second team.  I don't see him going anywhere else, at least this year.

Why would he miss half the season? It’s just a couple weeks...

I'll see that bold and raise you.  Jerome Robinson takes Shamet's starting spot in the rotation and ranks a blistering 167 overall.

I don't necessarily have bold predictions but I do have questions. How will Siakam, Simmons, Porzingis, Russel, DMurray, LeVert and Kuzma handle their new roles?

Not handling the ball as much, Russell Westbrook finishes as the #1 player when he increases his FG% and decreases his turnovers significantly.  His cumulative stats take a marginal hit, but more than offset by his efficiency.
