3 Reasons to be Psyched About the Coming 76ers Season (2018)
Jonathan Levin on Why to Watch the Philadelphia 76ers This Season
The NBA has never had such stacked talent, and the Philadelphia 76ers has some of the best names in the league on our roster. Last year we enjoyed an unexpected playoff run and look to capitalize on Bron Bron leaving the East with an Eastern Conference finals appearance at the very least.
Below are some reasons why you should look out for the Sixers and maybe program their schedule into your phone so you can catch some games and witness this electrifying team.
1.) Because Ben Simmons
This past season Ben Simmons showed us he’s the real deal. He passes like Lebron and Magic and moves like… Lebron and Magic. Sure, he needs to work on his jumper, but we’ve seen some of the NBA’s greatest players develop their range over time (Lebron included).
2.) Because the Eastern Conference is Wide Open
With Lebron out of the East, this paints an entirely different picture. The 76ers and the Boston Celtics are slated to battle all season for superiority in the East. There will be many narratives going on, like whether Ben Simmons can develop his offense, whether Embiid can remain healthy, what the heck Fultz is going to play like this season. Will Danny Ainge be able to trust his offense to Kyrie after their bench took them to the Eastern Conference finals last season? Who knows. No matter what happens, it’s going to be exciting to watch.
3.) Because the NBA Has Never Been Better
Evolution doesn’t stop, so, accepting this, the NBA has evolved rapidly over the past 20 years alone, giving us some of the greatest players of all time — names like Lebron James, Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, Shaq, Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, and more. It seems like every team has an amazing player — for instance Giannis Antetokounmpo on an otherwise less-than-inspiring Milwaukee team.
Tune into the 76ers season if you’re a fan or if you’re simply interested in watching exciting basketball being played at the highest level. Visit the Jonathan Levin Philadelphia sports fan page often for the latest Philly-centric sports news and rumors.
