The Philadelphia 76ers were picked to be one of the top teams in the NBA before the season started. Here are five reasons they are playing like a mediocre team.
The Toronto Raptors are 5-0 starring Kawhi Leonard. The Celtics are having some problems at 2-2, but they blew out the 76ers in the TD Garden to start the season. The Sixers are 2-3 and on the wrong side of the playoff cut right now.
It is way too early to panic, but there seems to be some real problems with the 76ers. Some will fix themselves. Others have to be addressed now or they will linger through this season and possibly seasons to come.
In all, there are five glaring reasons the 76ers are looking more like a pretender than a contender.
