    PHILADELPHIA  — After years of losing, the Philadelphia 76ers finally achieved the franchise goal of earning the No. 1 overall pick on Tuesday night in the NBA Draft lottery, the first time the Sixers have held the No. 1 slot since 1996. The change in fortune reportedly could be accompanied by a shift in draft approach, as well.

    According to sources close to Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo, the team has several good basketball players who don’t have serious injuries on their draft board.

    “There is the usual mix of very tall guys, guys who aren’t good at basketball but could possibly be one day if everything goes well, guys who are one-dimensional, and guys with chronic and debilitating injuries,” said a front office insider. “But for the first time in a really long while, there has been legitimate discussion about selecting a good and healthy basketball player. Believe it or not, I think the odds are as high as 35 or even 40% that we do it.”

    Another Sixers source has said there was even a front office meeting this week when someone came right out and said: “’Hey, what if we drafted a good player who could help this team win some games in the near future?’ The room was silent for a few moments, but after the shock was over, a few staffers actually seemed open to the concept. Before such talk was taboo.”

    A front office source also confirmed that the team office received a FedEx package this morning containing a 38-page, handwritten letter from former GM Sam Hinkie urging the team to trade the No. 1 pick for several first round picks in the 2030s, when he projects an “influx of interesting Chinese projects will hit the NBA.”

    “No one actually read the whole letter, of course,” said the source. “It got pretty weird and sad. There was a part five pages in about the statistical probabilities of chemtrails and I only assume it got worse from there.”

    If the Sixers actually decide to take a good basketball player with the No. 1 pick, many analysts predict their win total next year could jump from 10 to as many as 16.

    “Obviously it’s an exciting time for Sixers fans,” said Colangelo.

    Two-years, $54 million for Kevin Durant as a Golden State Warrior. However, the second year is a player option.

    Hopefully, the Dubs re-sign Leandro Barbosa, Anderson Varejao and James Michael McAdoo for the the bench. Bob Myers, Jerry West and the Dubs brass need to let Harrison Barnes go to the Dallas Mavericks. Mo Speights, Festus Ezeli, Brandon Rush and Ian Clark should go as well.

    Why even play the season next year? Just have Cleveland and Golden State play a best of 21 for the title.

    Well for one, injuries. But IMO more importantly OKC and the Cavs started punching holes through the Warriors system. It's possible the league will have figured them out this year and they won't be nearly as effective with their 3-pointer bonanza. Other teams will be copying parts of that system too. You never know the Spurs could come out of the West

    the okc solution was to have better athletes and ridiculous 1v1 scoring options.

    and let's be serious here, without that okc series the cavs would not have won
    always reasonable
