Casual Friday Liberty Links Lounge: Spencer Hawes MVP Edition

May your Friday be Swaggy. - Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

We'll bring the links, you bring the discussion. Casual Friday open thread discussion fun for everyone!

Welcome to another edition of the Liberty Links Lounge.

Lots of things to touch on this week as the Sixers made their season debut. Some miscellaneous thoughts before the links:

  • Still crushing hard on Dorell Wright.
  • Congrats on the new contract, Jrue Holiday. Looking forward to seeing you take the next step.
  • After Wednesday night, REALLY can't wait to see what this team looks like with Bynum. If the Sixers go undefeated without him, 82-0 should be a cakewalk. Can you say "championship"?
  • Really disappointed we didn't see Kwame Brown play yet.
  • The lockout may have sucked, but I enjoyed having games on almost every other night. Having to wait 3 days in between games, like we currently are, is rough.
  • Diggin' those blue jerseys. And I'm not alone.
  • That was a really good Spencer Hawes costume that Andrew Bynum was wearing the other night.
  • Let's take down the Knicks.

"Andre Iguodala received a mixed reaction upon his return to Philly, which is just about right given his tenure there. Paul Flannery writes about Iguodala's past, future and legacy in Philadelphia and points beyond."
