The Philadelphia 76ers released their shortened 2011-12 schedule a few days ago.
We will have an NBA season...phew!
And what a season it should be for the 76ers as they look to enter into a new era in Philadelphia basketball. A new owner, a new mascot, a new passion for a team that has lacked a fanbase for the past several years.
The one thing that sticks out to me from last season is Games 3 and 4 in the playoffs against the Heat. I just can't get over the overwhelming feeling of having the Wells Fargo Center packed to see Sixers basketball. The whole city came out to watch and cheer on the super underdog.
That passion, that support, that fire should be back for this year's team as well. The core group of players are still on the roster and Doug Collins is now entering his second year as the head coach.
With plenty of games to choose from, here are 10 that fans must watch.
