The Philadelphia 76ers are off to their best start in over a decade. The last time the Sixers got off to this hot of a start, they became Eastern Conference champions.
Now while I won't crown this Sixers team champs of anything yet, you have to be pleased with the way they have played. Sure, they haven't played any "great" teams but they sure haven't played down to the competition. That's what makes you a successful team. You beat the teams you're supposed to beat.
And the Sixers aren't just beating teams; they are destroying them.
One main factor of the team's success has to be the continued improvement and leadership shown by Andre Iguodala. Sure Jrue Holiday and Spencer Hawes are off to scorching starts as well, but I think we all know that this team goes through Iggy.
Time will only tell what will happen to the Sixers down the road, but one thing is for sure: If Iguodala keeps it up, he could finally make his first All-Star appearance. Here's why.
