Months of upheaval, hope and lowered expectations have set the stage for tonight's opener against the Miami Heat. If you're a pessimistic sort, it won't take much for the Sixers to pleasantly surprise. If you're a hopeless optimist, well, anything is possible when the ref throws the ball up. Either way, the wait is over. Time for our first game thread of the season.
