Mortal Enemies: Brew Hoop
The Sixers are fresh off clinching a spot in the 2012 NBA Playoffs and are pretty much locked into playing the Chicago Bulls in the first round as the 8th and final seed. Since they still have two games left before the playoffs, Doug Collins and company decided they didn't want to take the chance of some major contributors getting bit by the injury bug or Scott Skiles, therefore Andre Iguodala, Elton Brand and Thaddeus Young have not made the trip to Milwaukee. I wonder if they're going to watch the game together. What kind of food do you think Elton will bring? Pretzel tray from the Pretzel Factory (gotta go with the cheese, honey mustard, and cinnamon dips)?
Anyway, this game doesn't really mean much but we should get to see a ton of the young guys on the roster, which excites Mike more than any other game ever could. Expect a ton of Evan Turner, Nikola Vucevic, Lavoy Allen, Craig Brackins (UNLEASHED!), and possibly some Xavier Silas who was just picked up for the last two games of the regular season.
It looks like for the last two games, the Sixers are looking to play young, wild, and free.
