What If The Sixers Were Avengers?

So after the news of Joel Embiid‘s long awaited surgery broke yesterday, I found myself exhausted from the effort of trying to pull together information of what was, is, and likely will be the rehabilitation of a player many once considered the keystone of general manager Sam Hinkie’s plan to rebuild the team into a perennial post-season participant.

So I sat down and popped in a meaningless video to watch and found myself mesmerized by the film of a wide range of individual superheroes who attempt to group up and save the planet.  At first, the group is pretty much at each other’s throats, but eventually they find a cause that unites them, they learn how to perform as a team, and they succeed in saving the earth.

Which is why I am here to write this article.

But the wheels never stop turning.   What if the Philadelphia 76ers had to form themselves as the Avengers?  Could they?  Which player would be which superhero?

Let’s have some fun and see how this plays out?
