Obviously, the fate of the pesky ping pong balls on lottery night will have huge implications in Philadelphia, so while the season will mercifully end in a couple of weeks, the real stressful situation to determine the next direction of the franchise is right around the corner.
The folks over at Liberty Ballers released their updated "Big Board" ranking the top prospects in the much-hyped 2014 NBA Draft. This is their second crack at ranking the available players and after some disagreement who the No. 1 overall pick should be when they first put a list together back in February, there's no argument who the top guy is now.
Eleven of the eleven Sixers nerds selected Kansas SF Andrew Wiggins as the cream of the healthy crop.
"Elite athleticism. High potential. Canadian goodness. Unanimous number one. He's the top prospect that everyone needs but not everyone deserves. Except us."
The consensus stops at the top. After Wiggins, some of the guys like Wiggins' teammate at Kansas, Joel Embiid, at No. 2 while others preferred the offense of Duke's Jabari Parker.
Rounding out the top ten are: 4. Dante Exum, SG Australia, 5. Julius Randle, PF Kentucky, 6. Noah Vonleh, PF/C Indiana 7. Aaron Gordon, PF Arizona 8. Marcus Smart, G Oklahoma 9. Doug McDermott, PF Creighton 10. Gary Harris, SG Michigan State.
