Even NBA.com is intrigued by the Sixers’ potential this season:
We’re not going to lie.
There is considerable intrigue in how potent the tandem of a fully healthy Joel Embiid and a newly re-committed James Harden can be.
They could rival Shaq-Kobe in offensive impact.
They have help too with the additions of tormenter/talisman P.J. Tucker, Montrezl Harrell and De’Anthony Melton, along with holdovers such as Tyrese Maxey (poor man’s Ja Morant?), Matisse Thybulle and Tobias Harris, who should be primed for a pivotal perk-up performance.
Plus, freedom from the Simmons melodrama.
Best to get busy now, though, because the window won’t stay open forever.
