I've always like the 76ers, but they're always missing something, I'm just not sure what exactly that is. But they have up-and-comers JrueHoliday and Evan Turner. They also have some good talent with guys like Thaddeus Young and Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen to a lesser extent. Not sure what Jason Richardson can still bring for next season. However, they’re getting a new coach and already have a President/GM in Sam Hinkie (formerly of the Houston Rockets). So I think Philly’s arrow is pointing up.
Hasan: Totally counted out the 76ers, but you reminded me a lot of what makes them a threat going forward. This year was the first in a rebuilding phase anyway with Andre Iguodala gone and if Andrew Bynum actually plays for the 76ers, they have a lethal team. Not exactly NBA championship caliber, but one that is setting itself up with a good core that should hit its stride in late 2014/early 2015. If they can draft a wing player in the mold of Iguodala, this could be a lethal team.
Felipe: Technically, the 76ers have been rebuilding for a few years now. Yes, they have made the playoffs, but haven’t had a winning season since 2004-05. And I really don’t see Bynum ever suiting up for Philly and they would have to be absolutely desperate to want him this bad. I have to question his heart and his degenerative knees. And the 76ers didn’t do much when they had Iguodala with the team so I doubt getting another player in that mold will help much. I would actually suggest getting a big man (maybe a guy like Cody Zeller as his stock seems to be dropping) would prove to be helpful, but then again, it depends what kind of coach they will hire.
