Reporter: Butler will have to adjust attitude to mesh with Philly's young stars

6 monthes ago   |   By Yardbarke

Jimmy Butler never meshed with two young stars in Minnesota, but he'll have to make a similar situation work with the Sixers, writes Mike Sielski of The Philadelphia Inquirer. Butler was abrasive with Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, often questioning their toughness and their work ethic. Sielski believes he'll have to take a different approach to be successful in Philadelphia. The confrontations could be at least partially explained by Butler's background, Sielski notes. He was picked 30th overall in 2011 and didn't enter the league as a ready-made star like Towns and Wiggins or...

Are the 76ers now the favorites of the Eastern Conference?

6 monthes ago   |   By Yardbarke

Coming into the season, the Philadelphia 76ers were viewed as one of the teams that could win the Eastern Conference. Especially with LeBron James traveling West. However, through 13 games, it has been a somewhat disappointing start to the season for them. Although they are 8-5, they're just 1-5 on the road. Additionally, they currently hold a negative point differential. Philadelphia looked at the revamped Raptors (12-1); the revitalized Milwaukee Bucks (9-3) under Mike Budenholzer. But that's not all.

Bovada, a site I rarely look at in the offshore market due to late line posts, has the 76ers at +750 to win the East. I'm not sure how you pass that up with this move. While the 76ers lost outside shooting and doesn't have many players who can stretch the floor, they now have possibly three of the top-10 players in the...
