The 2017 Sixers preseason has started and we’re going to be getting into a ton of topics this week about various players and direction of the team. Jake Pavorsky (@JakePavorsky), Sixers beat reporter at NJ.com, joins us for some analysis and in-depth conversation about how this coming Sixers 2017-2018 season may look.
But first, on the Brief News & Views segment:
1. Carson Wentz’s development during his second year, and our predictions for this coming game vs. the Cardinals. (4:50)
2. The Flyers season has begun! (13:35)
3. Our MLB post-season predictions. (20:50)
4. Phillies talk: Pete Mackanin is out, and Andy MacPhail gets into future spending. (28:05)
Then we get into our Up or Down segment where we briefly analyze four Philly sports personalities to determine if their needle is moving up or down. (36:00)
What we’re throwing down on the Table is an interview and discussion with long-time friend of the podcast show, Jake Pavorsky. Reporting on Philadelphia 76’ers activity now for NJ.com, Jake sees first-hand how this team has been building and performing with new and healing personnel. Of course, we get into Joel Embiid’s health right off the bat and also Markelle Fultz’s shooting as he enters his rookie year. What kind of contributors will Jerryd Bayless and TJ McConnell be off the bench this season? We certainly get into one of the most pressing questions that will likely follow this Sixers front office for most of the season – will Jahlil Okafor be traded? We get into all of these topics and much, much more this week on the Table. (42:40)
