Philadelphia 76ers Schedule in 2014-15
The Philadelphia 76ers are ready to hit the hardwood this season to do battle
with the top teams in the National Basketball Association. The Sixers have young roster that is riddled with talent, and fans
are eager to see how some of their young players perform on the court this season. Philadelphia will certainly have their
work cut out for them at the Wells Fargo Center this season, as a bevy of tough teams are slated to hit the court there.
Sixers always look forward to playing the New York Knicks, their Atlantic Division rival. The Knicks have one of the best
players in the league in Carmel Anthony, and the Sixers will likely look to Thaddeus Young to try and slow down the New York
scoring maven. The Sixers would love to send the Knicks back to the Big Apple with some defeats in 2014-15.
will also see the Toronto Raptors hit the court at the Wells Fargo Center multiple times this season. The Raptors are coming
off a 2013-14 campaign that saw them earn the third seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The Sixers will need to play
their best ball to take down a tough Toronto squad. There are plenty of other great matchups coming to the Wells Fargo Center
this season as well.
Philadelphia 76ers Team Info
The Philadelphia 76ers are looking to continue the rebuilding
process that the team embarked on a year ago. The Sixers hit the reset button on the night of the 2013 NBA Draft when they
traded All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday to the New Orleans Pelicans. Philadelphia struggled to get wins last season, but
they did show that they have some nice young talent that gives this organization a lot of promise down the road. Syracuse
product Michael Carter-Williams thrived at the point guard spot for the Sixers last season and went on to win the Rookie of
the Year award. The team's other 2013 lottery pick, Nerlens Noel, missed the 2013-14 campaign due to injury but should be
back this season at full strength. Noel was one of the more intriguing prospects in the draft class thanks to his ability
to become a dominant defender. All eyes will be on Noel this season when the Sixers take to the court. Philadelphia took another
gamble on draft night this offseason when they selected center Joel Embiid. Embiid might have been the most talented player
in the draft class, but he could very well miss the entirely of his rookie season just as Noel did. Still, general manager
Sam Hinkie is in this for the long haul, and his plan is a long-term one. That sentiment was reinforced even further when
the Sixers used their second lottery pick in the 2014 draft to select Croatian forward Dario Saric. Saric probably won't come
to the NBA for at least two years, but he was one of the most talented players in the draft and already has big-time experience
overseas. It's clear that the Sixers have a game plan and they're sticking to it.
the Philadelphia 76ers hit the court this season, fans will be packed into the stands to see this young team compete with
some of the best teams in the NBA. Being there in person is the best way to catch an NBA game, as these players will do things
on the court that will amaze you when you're right there in the stands. The size and skill of these athletes is something
you're not going to be able to truly appreciate from your living room, and that's why so many people flock to arenas all over
the country throughout the season. Be a part of all the action when you head to the Wells Fargo Center in 2013-14.
Philadelphia 76ers Trivia
What pick in the 2014 NBA Draft did the Philadelphia 76ers use to land rookie center
The answer is the third pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. Embiid was the favorite to be the first selection in
the draft before it was revealed that he would need foot surgery a few weeks before the draft. With the history of big men
and foot problems, this scared away both the Cleveland Cavaliers, who picked first, and the Milwaukee Bucks, who held the
second pick, from selecting the Kansas product. Much like they did a year earlier with Nerlens Noel, the Sixers pounced on
sliding talent in the draft and scooped up a player that has drawn comparisons to the great Hakeem Olajuwon. Embiid could
miss as much as the entire 2014-15 season, but if he's healthy the following year he could prove to be a huge steal for this
