Find Chemistry…Again

After our hypothetical Sixers traded for Eric Bledsoe, the team must get over the bumps of playing with a new frontcourt general. Isaiah Thomas and the Celtics started off as a hot couple by going 6-4 in the Thomas’ first ten games. Not only would Bledsoe and the Sixers start off hot, but also they must find the rhythm that is evident on a playoff ready team. Coming together on both sides of the ball will be an even tougher task for the Sixers than winning close to 20 games before the break. The young Sixers will have to face the pressure of an intense playoff run and probably have to beat out 2-3 other competitive teams looking for playoff glory.

The 2015-16 Philadelphia 76ers will have to climb mountain after mountain if they want to get anywhere near where the 2014-15 Celtics ended up. The Celtics made the right moves and everything worked perfectly, a mix of smart work and a ton of luck. The Sixers hopes for the playoffs are very very slim, but still there. A miraculous season must occur. Oh, and there is a glaring similarity between the ’14-15 Celtics and the ’15-16 Sixers…Gerald Wallace.

Just kidding, but really it’ll be interesting to see if the Sixers can be this year’s Cinderella. I hope everyone enjoyed the hypothetical trip  through a Sixers playoff run.
