The media have become all about first takes and hot takes and outrage, even if it’s phony.
And the Inky’s Marcus Hayes neatly sums up first and hot with this sugar plum after the Sixers beat the Heat to even their Eastern semis series at 2 apiece last night:
The Sixers are becoming more and more like themselves.
This should terrify not only the Heat, who are cooked (book it), but also the Celtics and Bucks in the other bracket.
If Harden’s hot and Maxey is for real and Harris keeps playing the best ball of his career, the NBA Finals should be in their future.
