We've done the analysis, we've looked at this series every possible angle. As the Sixers have rested and licked the wounds from a long season with a devastating finish, our excitement for the first round of the playoffs has come to a slow boil. I don't know about you guys, but I'm ready for basketball. In-game discussion after the jump.
No stats today, it's a new season, clean slate. Check out all the series coverage here. I chose to put Sammy's picture atop this post because he earned his huge contract with a monster playoff series and I think he's going to come up big in this one as well.
The tip is at 5:30 on TNT. I'll be right here, so join me in the comments for the in-game discussion. It's time to take game one.
