|Andre Iguodala and his mates will be taking on Lithuania in a tune up to the World Championships in Madrid at 3pm today. The game will be televised on ESPN. Game thread after the jump.|
|Another Friday, another Pressing Questions. I'll kick it off with a few discussion topics after the jump, you guys take it from there.|
|The Sixers best player is today's subject in the Early Predictions series. Iguodala is without question the most talented player who will don the Sixers jersey this season, but he's not the most important. You'll have to wait a bit to hear about that guy. Today, it's all about @AI9.|
|We've finally reached the fun portion of the Early Predictions series. Today, the guy who I believe will wind up being the best player on this team (eventually), and one of the best point guards in the league, Jrue Holiday.|
|Tom Moore has a great piece this morning detailing how Doug Collins and his staff are taking a hands-on approach with their new players this summer. This team has a long, uphill journey ahead of them, but stories like this can't help but make you feel a little bit better about the future.|
Latest comment: from Charlie HDoes Kenny Smith watch any games?...
|A player who is questionably part of the Sixers' "Young core," is next up in our Early Predictions series. Lou enjoys long walks on the beach, romantic comedies and blocking Twitter followers who make fun of him.|
|We're now deep into the rotation with our Early Predictions series. Today we'll tackle Elton Brand. Bounce-back season or slaloming down the backside of his prime with no brakes.|
|Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it to the Garden for today's Team USA vs. France game. I will, however, be right here watching it on ESPN2. If you're home looking for a hoops fix, or just interested to see what happens when the USA competes against France, instead of bailing them out of a World War, join me in the comments for the game thread.|
Latest comment: from Court_visioNno pun intended re: "better shot"...
|Never a dull moment for Sixers fans, huh? Plenty to talk about in today's edition of Pressing Questions. I'll kick it off after the jump, you guys bring it home in the comments.|
|Update: Notes from press conference after the jump Ed Stefanski has been pushed aside. Rod Thorn is the new guy at the controls. How are you feeling this morning, mere hours before the new man is expected to be introduced and given the corner office at the W(t)F Center. Vote after the jump.|
|After the jump we'll take a quick look at some of the moves Rod Thorn made while in charge of the New Jersey Nets.|
|Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting on Twitter the Sixers have signed Rod Thorn to take over as president of basketball operations. Ed Stefanski will shed that title, but somehow cling to his role as the team's general manager.|
Latest comment: from GoSixersI can live with that. This is kind of an out of the blue thing isn't it? I wonder what led to this happened....
|Evan Turner will be chatting live via UStream at 5:30pm today. Apparently he'll be taking questions, so fire away. Link after the jump, you can also watch on the embedded player.|

|The latest subject of our Early Predictions series is SF/PF Andres Nocioni, the only player in the history of the league to successfully pull off the trifecta of toughness (pictured above): 1. Argentinian, 2. Mullet, 3. Goatee.|
