NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Philadelphia 76ers Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NBA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Philadelphia 76ers fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

As the 2021-22 NBA regular season commences, fans don’t give the Philadelphia 76ers or their franchise superstar, Joel Embiid, much of a chance to make permanent waves throughout the league this year.

In this week’s SB Nation Reacts poll, 3% of voters tabbed the Sixers to win the East, which ranked seventh overall among the conference’s 15 teams. The Brooklyn Nets led the way in garnering 42% of votes, followed closely by the Milwaukee Bucks at 34%.

Despite Embiid’s runner-up MVP finish last season, only 6% of voters selected him to win the award this year — sixth among all candidates, including “other,” which received 11% of votes. Luka Doncic sat atop the poll at 23%, while Giannis Antetokounmpo was on heels at 20%.
