The Sixer Sense Podcast returns alongside the start of the NBA regular season. After a long offseason, even longer for those in the city of Philadelphia, we finally have meaningful basketball back in our lives. We appreciate all the listeners and readers sticking with us throughout the summer; Sixers basketball is finally back tonight!

Jonathan Geib and Lucas Johnson discuss the final preseason game where the Sixers beat the Atlanta Hawks 120-106. Joel Embiid played for the first time in the preseason and looked a little rusty. He was efficient at the free throw line as usual, but we should not worry about our reigning MVP. What else did the guys see in this game that they are excited about heading into the season?

With the return of basketball, there was another return in Philadelphia yesterday that was surprising to many. It was reported that James Harden came back, packed up, and ready to rejoin the Sixers prior to their first two-game road trip in Milwaukee and Toronto. Soon after this report, another was stating that the Sixers informed Harden he would not be traveling with the team and that he could rejoin the team at the home opener against the Portland Trailblazers on Sunday. Is there any chance Harden gets booed by Sixers fans at that game? What level of effort can we expect from him now that he is back with the team?

Lucas then presents Jonathan with his NBA Top 100 players rankings. Do you agree with these player rankings, specifically where the Sixers players land? The podcast closes out with a preview of tonight’s game against Milwaukee. Can the Sixers pull out a win as an underdog? Give the podcast a listen below!
