Sixers Media Day: Today!

New, comments

Hey, Media I know them!

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Get your balls and pens and Derek Bodners ready -- we've got some answers to mock and choices to question. Pre-season media day is usually infinitely less exciting than NBA Draft Media Day (mandatory favorite article I've ever written link) but now that BYNUM, I'm titillated by the prospect of any Sixers coverage at all. Derek will be in attendance and will report any updates in this storystream. Keep checking back for news on Dorell Wright's boxers/briefs decision.

I'm hoping to hear if Doug Collins or Tony DiLeo has anything more concrete about the starting lineup. The 2-guard and power forward spots are up for grabs, with Jason Richardson and Dorell Wright competing for the former while Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young box each other out (poorly) for the latter. At this point I'd guess J-Rich and Hawes start, but that's pure speculation on my part.

Tom Ziller has the 13 lies every fanbase will hear from Media Day. Which one do you think is the most Sixers? I have this one:

8. "[So-and-so] took 50,000 jumpers this summer." This is code for "[so-and-so]'s jumper is extremely broken, so we told him to shoot a lot instead of getting a shooting coach for him. We have no idea what we're doing."

Sound familiar?
