The NBA season will resume soon and when it does the 76ers might be the team that benefits most after the hiatus.
The NBA is coming back. The league and the players union are working tirelessly on medical protocols that address the still raging COVID-19 pandemic (no small thing) while spitballing ideas on how to ensure the social justice movement doesn’t get lost in the shuffle (ditto). But come July, 22 teams will report to Orlando, and a new, er, resumed season will begin.
And when it does, I’m all in on Philadelphia.
That’s right, Philadelphia. The delightfully dysfunctional Sixers. The 39-win club that stumbled into the pandemic in a virtual tie with Miami for the fifth seed in the East. The NBA champions of home games and NBA chumps of the road. Physically imposing Philly, with strength in the paint matched only by weakness outside it.
