Stephen A. Smith’s hot version of Sixers
“Everything” is at stake for the Sixers, according to Stephen A. “The future of Doc Rivers as a coach, the future of James Harden as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers… the future of Daryl Morey.
“You’re not out of the first round against the Toronto Raptors? This is an indictment against this franchise that will have epic consequences. You don’t win this series, heads will roll.”
Stephen A Smith is right. This is arguably the best shot the Sixers have had at an NBA Finals title since The Process began. Not to mention that Joel Embiid isn’t getting any younger. It only has a few years left in its prime before it begins to decline.
That being said, the Toronto Raptors have their entire roster healthy and will be looking to put pressure on the Philadelphia 76ers since game one. With Pascal Siakam leading the Pact at both ends of the court, Joel Embiid and James Harden would certainly need to bring their A-game if they want to get past this underdog in the playoffs.
Will we see fans as Wells Fargo Center fooling their own players? Or will Joel Embiid lead his team in ways never seen before. Remains to be seen.
