Sixers might come out of the East.
I think they're too immature for it, but you never know.

If the playoffs started tomorrow the Sixers play the Pacers.

Guess who's playing Tuesday?

Embiid when hes on the court is a top 5-10 player

Ben is prolly the best rookie since Duncan

Deep bench, one of the best shooters in JJ for spacing. One of the best offensive rebounders and offensive bigs in Saric. Arguably the best 3&D player in Covington whos a top tier perimeter defender...........

no excuses.

Embiid is African so hes prolly really like 32

Yeah, Sixers have a legit shot in the East at a 1st-round upset. I think that's about it for the East. Although, hell, Sixers can sneak into that #3-#4 seed...

In the West? Guess it really depends on the seeding, which is still way up in the air. Any team at #5 or #6 has a chance to upset #4 and #3, imo.

The excuse is maturity, slapnuts, and it's valid.

It's the same reason the 1995 Orlando Magic got swept and asses kicked by the Rockets, despite having massive talent superiority. It's also the same reason the 2009 Orlando Magic lost the Finals, because they were also the superior squad.

Maturity matters in the playoffs, that's not just some made up thing... lol.

i think Miami is the typical grind out tough series where no win is easy but theyll lose in 5 or 6

they have arguably the best coach in the league but rely too much on that and depth. Theyll make it tough but i cant see them upsetting anyone

I really wish they got rid of conferences in the playoffs.

I believe that NOBODY would wanna see the Bucks in the 1st round.

Miami cuz of Wade... And Sixers cuz they have a very talented team .. I think Embid is def a top 10 player in the league when not hurt.. So sixers can beat anyone imo ..
