In this episode of The Sixer Sense Podcast, Lucas Johnson and I welcome a special guest. This week, we have Kevin McCormick from ESPN 97.3 to offer his perspective on a variety of Sixers topics.  We start with the victory over the Kings.

We sing plenty of praises for one starter and one bench player, who both have been keeping the team afloat in the absence of Joel Embiid. We analyze how the team took an early lead and never looked back.

The bench and defense have contributed significantly to the Sixers’ recent success without Joel Embiid.

Following the Sixers/Kings recap, we then venture into the specific ways that the Sixers’ bench and team defense have been dominant since the All-Star break. We offer insight into coaching, rotations, and cohesion, as they contribute to the winning ways for Philadelphia.

Next, we explore the strong possibility that Kyle Lowry could be headed to his hometown team as early as Thursday’s NBA trade deadline. We suggest ways in which Lowry can wear a 76ers jersey based on the trade value and assets that the Sixers have to offer the Toronto Raptors.

Then, Lucas, Kevin, and I discuss the disheartening reality that Joel Embiid is a long shot to win the league MVP because of games missed due to injury. We dive into the ways he could possibly win the award if he returns and continues his MVP-caliber dominance for the 76ers.

Lastly, we each pick a player from a list of shooters who are on the trade market from other teams. As we always do, we share the responses from a few Sixer Sense social media followers who let us know who they’d pick from the list of four players that could boost the Sixers’ roster with much needed shooting.
