The Philadelphia 76ers are the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference and they lead 2-0 against the Washington Wizards in their 1st playoff round, but there are some who believe they don’t have what it takes to reach the finals. Win the NBA in 2021
The Sixers is led by the star duo of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, as well as Frontier All-Star Tobias Harris, but there are many forecasters who believe the Brooklyn Nets or the Milwaukee Bucks should be the favorites in the East.
It makes sense because Nets and Bucks have bigger names. Brooklyn has the star trio of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden, while the Bucks has Giannis. Antetokumpo and the others But no player was as dominant as Embed in the 2020-21season.
Former NBA champion Metta World Peace took to Twitter on Saturday afternoon to tell people to stop sleeping on the Sixers, and he cited Embiid as the reason.
@sixers sleeping Big bastards dominate. Be careful.
