We realize the Philadelphia 76ers have earned our respect for the most part here in the city. After the surprising deep playoff run of last season the Sixers are back on the tips of peoples tongues and are looking to rekindle the same fire of last season with an entirely revamped team. Sixers started the season off at 10-6, and are now 19-26 after defeating the Washington Wizards. With the apparent return of Andrew Bynum and Jrue Holiday playing All-Star basketball this team should not be taken lightly. The team grows and matures with every game. This Sixers squad has fight and determination that they have lacked in seasons past. One of the things they must capitalize on is defeating the mediocre teams in the Eastern Conference. Teams such as Washington, Cleveland,Detroit and Orlando all have lowly records and quite frankly should be easy wins for this Sixers team. I feel like once Andrew Bynum returns and gets in a good groove with Jrue and the crew I feel like this team can possibly be a 5 or even a 4 seed with a little luck. Remember, home court advantage is key and does wonders in the playoffs.
