Philadelphia 76ers Predictions for Struggling NBA Road Team
by Trevor Whenham - 1/16/2020
As the 2019-20 NBA season was about to start, Philadelphia 76ers' coach Brett Brown told anyone who would listen that his team was gunning for the top seed in the Eastern Conference this season. But if the season ended today, they wouldn't even open the playoffs at home. They sit in sixth place, and though they are within spitting distance of the Heat in second - trailing them by only three games - the Bucks would pretty much have to fold right now in order for the Sixers to catch them.

NBA Trade Deadline Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 1/15/2020
The NBA trade deadline looms on February 6, so we are in the last month of the status quo in the league. Let's get this out of the way up front - this is set up to be a very dull trade deadline. With all due respect to Kevin Love and Andre Drummond, if they are the two biggest names on the block in all likelihood, then it's not much of a thrilling deadline. But any change can be the one that makes the difference, and there should still be plenty of movement even if it isn't spectacular.

by Trevor Whenham - 1/14/2020
