Casual Friday Sixers Links: 2015 Second Round Picks

New, comments

We'll bring the links, you bring the discussion. Casual Friday open thread discussion fun for everyone! In this week's edition of Casual Friday, the Knicks are a disgrace and Sam Hinkie auditions for a role on the Late Show with David Letterman. Sort of.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Is the disgrace he's made out to be

Welcome back to Casual Friday Sixers Links.

Housekeeping:

• Happy 2015! May our 2015 be filled with even more Robert Covington converting the shots of our dreams.

• Missing you, Elliot Williams and The Road To Newark

• Liberty Ballers effete snob writer Michael Baumann has a new book coming out! It is called Philadelphia Phenoms: The Most Amazing Athletes to Play in the City of Brotherly Love and can be purchased now on Amazon.com and local bookstores. If you are on the fence about buying it or would just like a tease, Baumann was kind of enough to publish an excerpt exclusively on LB. Check it out!

• 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. Also, like us on Facebook here!
