This season for the Philadelphia 76ers may be one of their most unpredictable in recent memory.
For one, there is no season, as of now.
As a team full of young players trying to establish themselves in the NBA while also building up a chemistry that could last for seasons to come, a missed season would not be beneficial for the Sixers.
But the players are not the only ones trying to prove themselves.
From new owner Joshua Harris, to second year coach Doug Collins, the entire 76ers franchise is looking to reestablish their reputation as a contender, after enduring nearly a decade of mediocrity.
And, after last season, the team has every right to feel confident heading into this season.
However, for the Sixers to take another step towards success, and away from their days of remaining in the middle of the pack, a number of different scenarios must take place.
While these scenarios are not out of the realm of possibility, they are also far from a sure bet, as the Sixers look to have their first winning season in nearly 12 years.
But, if this season goes the way the team envisions, these best case scenarios, as well as many other accomplishments, may be headed the Sixers way.
