Sixers podcast: NBA start date | Harden or Holiday? | Free agent shooters

This week’s podcast focuses on a potential NBA season start date and shooters available in free agency. Also, the pod covers the most recent reports by Shams Charania regarding the Sixers’ interest in James Harden, and the Pelicans’ willingness to trade Jrue Holiday.

In this week’s episode of The Sixer Sense Podcast, Lucas Johnson and Christopher Kline cover all of the latest news regarding the Philadelphia 76ers.

The most intriguing news they discuss is the report about James Harden being on Philadelphia’s radar. Per Shams Charania, the Sixers have interest in acquiring Harden as Daryl Morey’s Houston connection raises eyebrows and anticipation for Philly fans. Could a trade happen that would pair the league’s deadliest scorer with Joel Embiid and/or Ben Simmons?

From there, the pod shifts to another big name that keeps being brought up for a trade possibility. Jrue Holiday was reported to be available, also according to Shams Charania. What would Daryl Morey have to do to reunite Holiday with the team that drafted him? The conversation offers insight on the possibility of Holiday wearing a Sixers Jersey again.

After potential trades are discussed, the promising news of a NBA season start date is covered. Lucas and Chris go into the pros and cons of starting in December, as well as how COVID will impact the viewing experience for fans. Will there be fans in the stands? If so, what should be the capacity?

Next, the podcast dives into the number of options the 76ers have when it comes to signing more shooters. It is no secret that Philly has to enhance their 3-point effectiveness, so who is available and fits within the Sixers’ tight budget?

Lastly, Lucas, Chris, and Uriah debate which 76ers’ jerseys are the best. With the cryptic tweet last week by Allen Iverson, there is hype about the return of the black sheen throwback jersey. Who favors the nostalgic look versus the contemporary jersey style? Listen and find out!
