    Anyone think the Sixers are heavily overrated

    I dont know if its just me but Im not sold on Elton Brand making the sixers a top 3 team in the east. I dont think they have enough of a full team around them to be considered as good or if not better than teams like the PIstons who altough aging are still an elite team, the Magic who finihsed 3rd last yr and won a divisoin title and not to mention their division rivals the Toronto Raptors who already had a better team then the sixers and added a player of equal if not greater status in Jermaine Oneal . I think sixers fan have a right to be excited but the rest of the out of market fan base is on crack if they think philly finishes with home court adv

    I am a sixers fan so i wont really touch this one 2 much, since it seems like you want fans outside of the sixers to react to this, but i will say this. I would take Elton Brand any day of the week over Jermaine O'neal. Plus i believe we have a very good core that can compete with anyone in the East. That being said i still think we have a little work to do to be the best, or wait it out till the Celtics get 2 old

    Look beyond the Elton Brand signing and see a more experienced Thaddeus Young, Andre Iguodala proving that he deserved his contract, Dalembert gaining a formidable big man to compliment his play, and Andre Miller gaining more talent to distribute to. Moreover, the addition of solid bench players like Royal Ivey, Kareem Rush, and Donyell Marshall.

    I admit that I have been taken aback by some of the predictions out-of-towners are making about the Sixers' success this year, but on paper all looks good and that is all anyone has to go by right now.

    If the Sixers got Jermaine O'Neal and the Raptors got Elton Brand, which team do you think would get more press?

    Actually i dont think their overrated at all. They had a good squad last year who played very well against houston which i recall the best. They just added Elton Brand to the mix so this season should be somethin great to watch. Look out for the 76ers.

    Every team that gets hyped before they prove themselves in play is overrated.

    To me Boston is alone in the East and everyone else is fighting to knock them off and anyone can be the next best team in the east between Detroit (usually at the top), Cleveland, Washington, Philly, Orlando, Toronto and believe it or not Miami.

    Thanks MJ-Bulls for the picture.

    Philly will be a lot better If healthy but a top 3 team is going a bit far. Detroit, Cleveland, Boston, Toronto IMO are all better than Philly. Philly should be a 5th seed or 6th depending on the play of Wizards.

    The talent is there, but they have to put it all together. I can see why some people would pick them to finish top 3, and I can see why people would think they are overrated.

    I won't even give my opinion, I think you know where my loyalty is. But until the season is underway, there is no way to judge.

    NOt right now, at work, but maybe later. OK i know i may have offended some ppl in here . I like the guy who said what would we think if toronot go brand and philly got jermaine, honeslty becasue elton is undersized and it would move bosh to 5, i wouldnt like it as much and would maybe rank them as equal but Jermaine can play center and I do believe once he plays a full season ppl will forget a couple injuries of the past and realy judge him on his skills, not a recent image thanks though for the replies, all good stuff
