NBA All-Star Ben Simmons is the talk of the town in Philadelphia for all of the wrong reasons and while management is dealing with that negative situation, they have a positive one happening on the court. 

Coming off a year in which they claimed the 1-seed in the Eastern Conference with a 49-23 record, the Philadelphia 76ers have championship aspirations once again. 

What winds up happening with Simmons is going to be a big deal for this organization, as he is a 3x All-Star and a big-time contributor on defense, but the Sixers really do need to approach this season without him in their game plan.

Joel Embiid is once again going to be an MVP candidate if he can stay healthy, and with other key offensive talents in Seth Curry, Danny Green, and Tobias Harris, this team definitely still has a chance to remain atop of the Eastern Conference standings. 

The additions of Georges Niang and Andre Drummond should prove beneficial to this team’s second-unit, but second-year guard Isaiah Joe is also making a case for being an impactful player in the 76ers’ rotation.
