|Don't read too much into my preference for Favors with this pick. If it's a decision between Favors and Evan Turner, I don't believe there is a wrong choice, merely a preference. After the jump I'll talk about why drafting Turner may not be my first choice, but it's one I'll be very, very happy with.|
|Turner, Favors, Cousins, maybe a trade? As we all know, the Sixers hold only one pick in tomorrow's NBA draft, albeit a sweet pick. But after the first ten minutes, the biggest question will be answered. After the jump, let's talk a bit about what could happen after that fateful trip to the podium.|

|When mock drafts everywhere were updated, my e-mail, Twitter account and the comments here were flooded with questions about the number four pick. The Nets seem to be wavering on who they will pick at number three, meaning Derrick Favors may be available at number four. After the jump, I'll talk a bit about what this could mean for the Sixers.|

|Whether Evan Turner will, in fact, be the Sixers' pick at number two, whether he should be the pick or not, it's very, very refreshing to hear that he not only wants to be the pick, but that he really wants to play in Philadelphia.|
|The summer of anticipation continues to unfold. We're left with one week before the Sixers will make their decision. Have I changed my mind? Check after the jump, leave your thoughts in the comments and vote in the poll.|
|I've been thinking about this question for a while, but it's a good time to write something about it given Brian's post from earlier today. We hear this stated authoritatively all the time by Sixer fans of varying degrees of understanding: "Andre Iguodala is not a shooting guard." Even Doug Collins stated yesterday that Iguodala's natural position is small forward. But practically speaking, what is the difference between a shooting guard and and a small forward? And do all great shooting guards have to be great shooters? My thoughts after the jump.|
|If you believe the national press, the Sixers are looking at a less-than ideal fit with the number two pick. They think Evan Turner won't work with Andre Iguodala. I disagree, but that's not what today's topic will be. After the jump, I've got a question for all the Iguodala haters out there, so go ahead, come out of the woodwork. Your input is requested.|
|The coach is in place. The season of misery led to an improbably, almost miraculous result in the lottery and the number two pick in next month's draft is waiting. Ed Stefanski appears to be secure in his position as general manager for the time being. Certainty should be the word that describes the past week. Feel free to call me a pessimist, but I'm still left with a number of questions. Foremost among them, what does ownership expect from Stefanski and Collins in 2010-2011?|
|With the number two pick in his back pocket, Ed Stefanski and his entourage made the drive back down the Turnpike to Philly last night. Already, there were rumors about his willingness to trade the pick for a veteran. For my own sanity, I'm going to completely ignore those rumors and assume he will be fired before that is allowed to happen. Instead, let's take a look at the roster as it could stand on June 24th.|
