Mortal Enemies of the Night: Peninsula is Mightier
- Forget the Xs and Os, this may be the final Sixers game we have the pleasure of watching in a very long time (Off-season + possible lockout.)
- Will this be Thaddeus Young's last game in a Sixers uniform? (Restricted free agent)
- Will this be Spencer Hawes' last game in a Sixers uniform? (Restricted free agent) (Please?)
- Will this be Andre Iguodala's final game in a Sixers uniform (Off-season trade) and/or final game as the "face of the franchise" (Jrue Holiday + Evan Turner)?
- Even if the Sixers season ends today I'd love to see them go down swinging, and with Coach Collins at the helm and the resiliency these guys have shown all season I'd expect nothing less.
- I know things look bleak being down 3-0 and all the momentum and talent on Miami's side, but crazier things have happened. Don't count on it, but a little kid named J.P. once said "Hey, it could happen!" And he'd be right -- "it" can happen. /hopeless optimism
- This might be the last game thread we have until THE thread for the NBA Draft! I haven't joined the fun as much I have in previous years, but I've thoroughly enjoyed the time I've spent GT'ing with you guys this season, and I'm glad Mila Kunis and Dong have brought us all closer together. I know it's Easter, but if you're around watching the game let's go out with a bang (and lots of Arianny Celeste pictures).
- Who knows what Andres Nocioni's future is with the Sixers, but there's a decent chance this is his final game, which means this thread may double as NoceOne's farewell thread! I think I speak for all of us when I say, it's been a pleasure! Please come back and visit!
- If the Sixers pull a Pacers and win, let's do this again Wednesday!
