Sixers vs. Melbourne United: Preseason Game Thread

We back.

NBA: Playoffs-Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Ladies and gentlemen, THE SIXERS ARE BACK. Yes, it is only preseason, and yes the game is against a team that does not play in the NBA (Melbourne United of Australia’s NBL) — which actually makes things more intriguing, personally — but Markelle and Jo and Dario and Ben and JJ and the rest of squad will be hitting the court for real live basketball action.

What I’m watching for:

  • Will Fultz attempt a 3-pointer?
  • Has Joel perfected any post-moves?
  • Ben Simmons passing. Man, I miss the guy’s court vision.
  • Wilson Chandler is considered the Ersan Ilyasova replacement, but how will Brett Brown actually utilize Chandler?
  • The Wells Fargo Center crowd shouting their first “MOOOOOOOOOSE!” when Mike Muscala hits his first 3-pointer.

I’m ecstatic to welcome you all back to a good ol’ fashion Liberty Ballers Game Thread. Keep it clean. Keep it gif-y. Keep it hot-take-y.
