The Philadelphia 76ers currently sit at 2-2 in the early stages of their shortened 66 game schedule. A record that could have very well been 4-0 if it weren't for some mental lapses late in the two losses.
It's still early, but the Sixers are in 1st place in the Atlantic division, a place where they would like to stay for the remainder of the season.
Sure it is a bit of a long shot, but it is far from imaginative thinking from the Sixers themselves.
One reason why the club to off to a good start this season is their balance and chemistry with each other. Everyone knows Andre Iguodala and Jrue Holiday by now, but who are the lesser known guys that make this team go?
You'd be surprised what "stars" are on this list.
