Fans of the NBA are constantly reminded that the preseason doesn’t really mean anything but those who love the Philadelphia 76ers can’t contain their excitement right now.
It is true that the team will have a lot of challenges in the regular season and there is a large group of teams who could get in the way of them making the Finals.
However, right now the 76ers are on fire and seemingly unstoppable.
4-0 this preseason.
— Philadelphia 76ers (@sixers) October 13, 2022
The 76ers beat the Charlotte Hornets, 99-94, on Wednesday night, securing a 4-0 record in the preseason.
Not only has Philly won every single preseason game, but they have done so with dominance, drive, and a sort of energy that feels very different from the years before.
Yes, these have only been preseason wins but some people are wondering if the 76ers are the real deal.
The Process Pays Off
The team hasn’t changed too much in the offseason but there are numerous NBA analysts saying they could go all the way this year.
As well, the fans of the team also swear that the 76ers will make the Finals at the end of this season.
This is mostly because of Joel Embiid, the team’s lead player who has been playing like a man possessed at times and could be having his first MVP season in 2022-23.
James Harden‘s renewed dedication to the team is also making people believe.
But other guys are stepping up and boosting the squad’s chances.
Take Tyrese Maxey, for example: he’s had perhaps the best preseason out of everyone and has seen his star shine brighter than ever during these four games.
The team is coming together exactly as it should – but can they carry this over into the regular season?
