Sixers vs. Heat Game Thread: Enjoy LeBron

Yes, that's Andres Nocioni in that picture. It's an old picture. - Marc Serota

There are games you want to watch because your team stands a decent chance of winning and there are games you just want to watch for their aesthetic value. This is the latter.

Those two wing matchups sure do stick out, don't they? Though that has more to do with LeBron being good than Evan Turner being detritus. On the plus side, we finally get our collective wish of seeing Charles Jenkins start over Royal Ivey. I'd have taken a chicken starting over Royal Ivey, but this works too.

Hey, it's one game. Anything could happen.
