The Philadelphia 76ers enter the 2018 National Basketball Association playoffs as the hottest team in the tournament.
Overall, Philadelphia has won 17 consecutive games. Johnson has made little impact and been the target of social media scorn from Sixers fans who would rather see Richaun Holmes get a crack at staring.
Dragic is the better scorer and shooter, but Simmons tops him in virtually every other category on offense and defense. "And to have him come back and save the day because we lost Game 1, that's not going to happen".
Kelly Olynyk scored 26 points off the bench for the sixth-seeded Heat.
He is still out for Monday night's game vs. Miami.
While Simmons has expressed similar respect for Magic Johnson, Julius Erving, Allen Iverson and other prior-generation National Basketball Association greats, there was a deeper reason for him to have trafficked in Wade's preferred sporting goods.

Aguero featured in City's last two games against United and Liverpool, coming as a second half substitute. Before, the back four was not well organised, now all the teams are well organised.
JJ Redick scored 28 points and reserve Marco Belinelli added 25 to lead the Sixers, but it was rookie Simmons, who stole the show in his National Basketball Association playoff debut.
The 76ers shot an extraordinary 64 per cent from behind the three point line with Reddick top-scoring with 28 points, Belinelli 25 points, Saric 20 points and Ilyasova 17 points.
Philadelphia 76ers Robert Covington has been with the Philadelphia 76ers since almost the beginning of "The Process".
Redick, a member of Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Clippers playoff runs during his 12-season career, loved the fire Simmons let loose to motivate the team. The 33-year-old Duke University product is also the only regular Philadelphia starter to have any postseason experience, having appeared in 88 playoff games. Richardson and Covington are both part of the "3-and-D" movement in the National Basketball Association.
Thompson was lethal, shooting an astounding 85 per cent from the field by connecting with 11 of 13 field goals and five of six three-point attempts for 27 points. "So we'll fight as hard as we can in Game 2".
In Embiid, the Sixers have a big-game player that who excels on the national stage.
