When the Sixers are Good Again, Who Will Challenge Them?

BY PAUL MANCANO—It could be a while before the Philadelphia 76ers are back in contention for an NBA title. That elusive forth title seems further than ever now following the news that Joel Embiid will miss the entire 2015-16, and may never play in an NBA game.

I, like most fans, completely expected him to package some of those picks to move up. Maybe they would be a secondary piece of a deal to get another lottery pick. Maybe they would be used to grab a couple late-first rounders. Instead, Hinkie did the last thing we all expected: he kept them (for the most part). Continue reading
