The Sixers will be a very good team this year....Doug Collins has those guys especially Evan Turner playing with confidence and grit

Sixers and Pacers are my sleeper teams in the East they are going to suprise a lot of people

The sixers will defintely be in the 2nd round this year since they won't be playing any of the teams below in the 1st round

Bulls, Heat, or Magic

Depends how high they can keep their reg. season record. While they just beat the Hawks, I think the Hawks can potentially knock them out in a 4-5 seed match-up.

However, as a 3-seed or higher they would almost certainly advance.

Look at the 76ers schedule from Jan 30 - feb 13ish. It's a nasty stretch of schedule which could prove pivotal and will certainly test the team.

Well Philly fans, are you now convinced that your Sixers are legit?

I thought the Sixers were legitimately solid when they finished their beginning of the season western road swing at 3-2. Those western road trips are tough, especially when you start the season with one.

Yeah because almost everyone expected them to come out of that 1-4 or 0-5. When they finished 3-2 that was a early sign the team was different

A nice win against Chicago, I like what Doug Collins has done to the Sixers. They seem legit to me and I have no reason to think they won't do well in the playoffs. I doubt they can take the Heat but they can put up a good fight and maybe they can do what Memphis did last year.

Now I see why they pulled Doug from his TNT job-lol At the time I was like-"why are they trying to hire someone who is already working?
