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

Welcome to another edition of Casual Friday Sixers Links.

Quick things:

  • No Sixers links last week, sorry. Too busy building my Sam Hinkie shrine.
  • Draft season is upon us. Keep an eye out for our LB Big Board series.
  • Want to share some Sixers thoughts with the LB community? Write a FanPost. Do a good job on it and we may even promote it to the front page. I'll even link to it in this weekly links post too. You'll be famous!
  • Go like the LB Facebook page!
  • Follow LB on Twitter. We changed our handle from @Philly76ersBlog to the more aptly named @Liberty_Ballers!
