76ers Young Stars Give Team Promising Future
February 4, 2014
The Philadelphia 76ers were able to win their first game of the season against the two time defending NBA Champion Miami Heat on opening night. Since then the 76ers have not been so lucky as they have gone a dismal 13-31. All hope is not lost as there have been some other bright spots for this Philadelphia team as rookie Michael Carter-Williams has been playing like the Rookie of the Year this season.
MCW has been lights out this season really developing quickly as the season has progressed on and is averaging 17.4 points per game, 6.7 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game. Simply put, the kid can do it all. In fact Carter-Williams is only behind Evan Turner in points per game on his team. Turner and MCW have been the lone bright spots in a down year for the 76ers as they have both improved and are a solid foundation to build upon.
Additionally the 76ers figure to have two lottery picks in what people are calling the deepest draft in a decade, with players like Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins, Marcus Smart and Aaron Gordon expected to declare.
The 76ers other pick is from a 2013 draft day trade that sent Jrue Holiday to the New Orleans Pelicans in exchange for big man Nerlens Noel and a 2014 1st round pick. When Noel does finally get healthy enough to play he is projected to be an impact player from the moment he takes the court. The amount of talented players the 76ers are assembling will certainly impact their future for the better as the 76ers new management has done a fantastic job of identifying and developing talent.
The 76ers presently have one of the lowest home averages in the NBA at $84 for the remainder of their games at the Wells Fargo Center. The 76ers do have some great deals on games still like when they play the Milwaukee Bucks on February 24th. 76ers tickets for that game averages just $52 and has some tickets for as low as just $7 for this contest.
