As a history student, one thing I have been consistently taught is to avoid dabbling in the counter-factual. Counter-factuals, for those that do not know, are where you take something that did not happen, and ask "what if?" What if the Sixers won the 1993 NBA Draft Lottery? Well, they didn't, we'll never know. What if Ray Allen missed the three point shot in the waning seconds of Game Six? Well, he drained it, we'll never know. What if the Sixers never hired Eddie Jordan? Well, they did, and now everyone and their mother has Evan Turner egg on their face...
