Someone with this team knows exactly what he is doing.
Since the 2005-2006 season, the 76ers have undergone a thorough make-over … divesting themselves of Jim O’Brien (Head Coach), Allen Iverson (G), Chris Webber (C) and their former GM (Billy King), in favour of Mo Cheeks, Andre Miller, Thaddeus Young and Ed Stefanski, respectively.
This off-season … by re-signing their own key Free Agents (i.e. Louis Williams and Andre Iguodala) and bringing in a group of solid new players (i.e. Elton Brand, Royal Ivey, Theo Ratliff and Marshall) … the 76ers have attempted to push forward into a new stratosphere, in the NBA, as one of the top four teams in the Eastern Conference … alongside the Boston Celtics and the Detroit Pistons.
How far can the Sixers go this year?
If they can remain healthy … Philadelphia is now good enough to qualify for its second consecutive playoff berth and become a serious threat to advance to the EC semifinals.
