Twenty six games in a row. That’s what the Sixers lost in their obvious quest to be in the position that they are in for the upcoming draft.
When I was watching the lottery, my hope was for a top three pick. They were slotted for the number 2 pick, but ended up being bumped down a spot as the Cavaliers made this…this sick leap to get the top pick yet again.
And so, here we are, the Sixers get to pick 3rd and 10th. Over the weeks since the lottery, inevitable reports of who the Sixers would pick. Mock drafts ran rampant. Quotes from players “I could play here” and “I’m not injured” went flying.
And now, as I write this, we are a week away from the draft. What should the Sixers do during draft night? Should they trade up or stay? Who should they pick? I’m going to get into all of this.
I mean, as a fan of the team, I have thought about this for a long time. Now that we’re very close to it, and with no NBA basketball on, all I can think about is this. One day they should pick Wiggins. The next, go after Parker. For all we know, I will come back to this post a week from now and wonder where my mind was.
