Prepare for the worst. Pray for the best.

I'm here to ask a very important question that a lot of Sixers fans don't want to ask. What happens if the Sixers don't win the lottery? What if Jabari decides to stay in school and we get the 2nd or dare I say the 3rd pick? What happens if things don't go the Sixers way (like usual). It's really scary if you think about it. Assuming Wiggins goes 1st and Jabari stays at Duke, who would we pick? Embiid to play along side Nerlens? (For the record, I really wouldn't mind them picking Embiid. I just think there's too much risk involved.) But if that's all that is there, then you have to take it. I like the potential of Noel and Embiid growing and learning how to play together. The freakish athleticism in the Sixer front-court would put the Eastern Conference on notice. With that being said, I don't like picking big men with high draft picks. Especially the ones with injury problems. Maybe I still have a little PTSD from the Bynum saga, but I will never trust a 7 footer ever again. So, who do we draft? For me, Julius Randle is the best emergency option for the Sixers. He's the prototypical NBA power forward who would be an excellent complement to Nerlens. He can do a lot of things offensively whether it be facing up or in the post. Mock drafts have him anywhere from 4-8 and if Parker stays, he could be the best option at 3rd pick. At this point, Sixers fans won't be happy because we didn't get Parker or Wiggins. But, falling and picking Randle may be the blessing the Sixers need. All this draft talk makes my head hurt.
