2022-2023 Season Preview

The 76ers are going all in after acquiring All-Star guard James Harden last year. Daryl Morey is putting together perhaps the deepest team Doc Rivers has ever coached with a lineup that has many Sixers fans expecting a ring. PJ Tucker and Montrezl Harrell signing gives the Sixers a deep and experienced duo behind Joel Embiid. Trading for DeAnthony Melton gives the team a dynamic defensive combo guard to back up Harden. Excited eyes are looking at Tyrese Maxey as he could emerge as a Most Improved Player candidate. 

With a deep team and championship coach fans in Philadelphia are excepting a trip to the Finals. The Process has taken a serendipitous route thus far and if the Sixers collapse without anything to show for it the question of what’s next won’t be able to be ignored. There may not be a team with higher expectations and pressure entering the season but look for the Sixers to be near the top of the Eastern Conference come the end of the season.
