The Sixer Sense Podcast returns as there are three teams still in contention for the Larry O’Brien NBA Finals trophy. The Denver Nuggets are the Western Conference representatives having swept the Los Angeles Lakers in the Conference Finals and they await a nail-biter of a series in the Eastern Conference. The Miami Heat and Boston Celtics are tied 3-3 with a winner-take-all Game 7 on Monday night. Can the Boston Celtics make history?

In news more applicable to the Philadelphia 76ers, some NBA head coaching vacancies are starting to be filled. The Milwaukee Bucks hired Toronto Raptors assistant Adrian Griffin to be their next head coach. This move was supposedly signed off by Giannis and sees one of five team vacancies filled. The Detroit Pistons are also closing in on their next team leader as many believe Kevin Ollie will make his NBA head coaching debut in Michigan next season. Do the Sixers need to speed up their head coaching search to ensure they get the candidate they want and need?

Lucas Johnson and Jonathan Geib shift the conversation to discuss a recent Sixer Sense contributor article from the website. Jack Simone wrote up an incredible piece positing one potential Joel Embiid trade for every NBA team. The article ranks the trades from least to most likely and is a must-read for Sixers fans. Do the guys think any of these trades are plausible or need to legitimately be considered?

The podcast ends by diving deeper into this remarkable Eastern Conference Finals. At the time of the podcast’s last recording, the Miami Heat had a commanding 3-0 lead over the Boston Celtics, and Lucas and Jonathan were discussing the Nuggets versus Heat NBA Finals that was about to occur. Fast forward a week and the Celtics have strung together three straight wins while facing elimination and are on the brink of becoming the first team in NBA history (0-150) to come back from a 3-0 series deficit to win. Can Boston make history? Give us a listen to find out what the guys think!
