Andrew did a real nice job earlier in the day examining the realistic player option at 15th overall, as well as his desire for Rod Thorn and company to move up, so give that another read or use it to learn about the guy the Sixers do end up selecting.
Enjoy the bad suits, the newly acquired bling, the upside, the wing span, all of the draft hoopla, but most importantly, let's hope the Sixers can continue the progress towards a championship-caliber team in Philadelphia.
AU is lucky enough to have tickets inside the Prudential Center this evening so look for a report back late this evening or early tomorrow. Want to see the Sixers move up? Move 'Dre? Make a splash? Chat along with all of the picks in the comments.
