Welcome to another edition of Casual Friday Sixers Links!
• After all the worry over beating the Celtics a couple weeks ago, the Sixers have not won a game since and lost several in hilarious fashion. I love this team.
• Missing you, green grass. The grass is supposed to be green, isn't it?
• 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 the weekly links post too. You'll be famous!
