The Philadelphia 76ers appear to be one of the best up-and-coming teams in the Eastern Conference. However, these six players will be major causes to either the Sixers' success or disappointment in the 2012-2013 season.
These players are not necessarily the best six players on the Sixers, but rather the six most pivotal to the team's success in this upcoming season. These players will not only have the responsibility to produce on the court, but they will also be responsible for helping the Sixers build a strong team chemistry.
After last year's playoff run and the addition of star center Andrew Bynum, expectations are high for the young Sixers team. They will no longer sneak up on teams, as they now have a legitimate star.
It will be interesting to see how Doug Collins handles this group of very different personalities, and also to see how much they grow as a team as the year progresses.
