Welcome to another edition of Casual Friday Sixers Links!
• Even though he is not actually going away and will still make contributions to LB, I'd like to personally thank Levin for bringing me onboard to write for this tremendous site a couple years ago. He is as organized and meticulous behind-the-scenes as he is fun in public, and it has been a thrill to blog with him over the past couple years. That said, don't feel too sad. Sean and Jake are just as great, and even better Jake is just entering college next year. Those are your prime years for blogging. Continue to expect excellence in Liberty Ballers and we'll continue to deliver excellence. Or if you don't expect excellence out of us (and let's be honest, who does), you can always expect us to bring the poop.
• Missing you, Mike
• Many people have asked many blog leaders over the years if they could change their SB Nation username because there was no manual way to do it yourself. Now you can manually change your username one time without having to ask any higher-up to do it for you. Click on this Blog Huddle link for specific instructions on how to change your username.
• 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!
• For new post updates and draft commentary from our writers, follow LB on Twitter - @Liberty_Ballers, and be the first to know the next time LB gets a Twitter shoutout from Molly Sullivan.
