Welcome to another edition of Casual Friday Sixers Links!
• SB Nation hockey blogger Eric T. is currently attending the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference at MIT where he bumped into Sam Hinkie.
Early contender for highlight of SSAC for me: getting to ask Sam Hinkie "so what are you going to do with all those second round picks?"— Eric T. (@BSH_EricT) February 28, 2014
@BSH_EricT His answer?— Justin (@JustinF_LB) February 28, 2014
.@JustinF_LB "Pick people! We need a lot of guys!"— Eric T. (@BSH_EricT) February 28, 2014
A single tear rolls down the cheek of Byron Mullens.
• Not missing you, Doug Collins. I'd bet money he thinks a Sloan Conference is a place to meet William Sadler.

BEST OF LIBERTY BALLERS:
Do the Sixers have an asset in Eric Maynor? - Derek Bodner
The more I think about it the more I am amazed Sam Hinkie could not turn Kwame Brown into an asset.
Reflecting on the Evan Turner Era - Michael Levin
"How can you say goodbye to me like that I was fouled that one time!"
"Yes, Evan, I know. You were fouled. You and every non-superstar."
"Exactly! You see what I mean! I say we should do something."
"Evan, I do not think you understand what's going on here."
"Yes I do I was fouled why can't you people see that?"
"Because you complain every time you are marginally touched and it instantly loses credibility with the officials."
"But if I'm fouled I'm fouled I need to let people know I was fouled because they fouled me. Don't you understand what's going on here?"

"Oh, Evan, you complain about as well as you defend. Now get lost."
