The 76ers are the polar opposite of what the NBA has become.
The NBA has become an individual star-driven game where the good teams have one guy they can turn to when it comes to the clutch moments. That can be gift as much as a curse as you may have a dynamic scorer to take over the game, but if he is having a bad night, there's no one else to pick up the slack.
The Sixers do not have to worry about this.
They have six players who average double figures in scoring. The team's leading scorer, Lou Williams, comes off the bench and has not made a single start this season.
If the Sixers need a bucket in a pressure moment in a big game, they usually turn to Williams. But if he is having an off night, the team could turn to Jrue Holiday and possibly even Andre Iguodala as well.
The common conception that only stars win NBA titles is a bit of misnomer.
Every team that has won the championship recently has been a deep team that had multiple scoring options.
The Dallas Mavericks last year had Jason Terry and others to spell Dirk Nowitzki. The Los Angeles Lakers had Pau Gasol, Andrew Bynum and Lamar Odom. The Boston Celtics had the Big Three.
More than one person is needed to step up in order to win the NBA Championship and that is a problem the Sixers do not have to worry about.
