76ers formal head coach Nick Nurse died in the fire affected home together with his family after…

The Philadelphia 76ers landed the biggest fish of free agency right out of the gates by snagging Paul George off the market, ultimately giving them that desired third star to potentially send them to the thunder dome.

Daryl Morey once again scores a hattrick, but signing Paul George isn’t just a win for the franchise, but also for him on an individual level. We’re not even a full year removed from the longtime executive getting major flak for a certain someone’s summer-long tirade, so this must be vindication for the 76ers’ head poncho.

Many are doubting the 76ers handing George a max contract at age-34, but regardless of the divided opinions, the franchise can afford an overpay at this juncture. Oh, and are we sure those converse takes aren’t coming from a bitter conduit (ahem, James Harden defenders)?

To those who need a refresher, Morey refused to hand Harden a max extension last year after an alleged promise to that effect, leading the All-Star to explicitly lash out against the 76ers president and request a trade.

Unfortunately for Harden, in acquiring George, his teammate last season, Morey eventually comes out as the victor in this equation. Not only did the 76ers tender George that max extension Harden and his camp so desired, but the former Sixer is now stuck in a Clippers team that has the makings of a broken map.
