Will the Sixers make the playoffs this year?
Will Ben Simmons, Markelle Fultz and Joel Embid push the Sixers to the NBA playoffs?
Last year, the number one pick in the NBA draft Ben Simmons injured himself resulting in him being side lined for the duration of the 2016/2017 NBA season. However, even though the Sixers lost there star player, emerging center Joel Embid carried them through the second half of the season helping the team win 28 games. Although they did not make the playoffs, Sixers fans saw a glimmer of hope in the young center and more importantly in there teams future. With the return of Ben Simmons this year and rookie number one draft pick Markelle Fultz, some say the Sixers have a guarantee spot in the playoffs. But is it too early to tell? We have only seen Ben Simmons play partially and haven't even seen how effective Markelle Fultz is against NBA level competition. Time will tell to see if the new big three in Philadelphia can live up to the expectation NBA fans have placed on them.
