    This is a two man race.

    And couldn't the argument be made that if it's the sixers, Simmons will be the one doing the leading?

    Simmons will be great, but if the Sixers ever win a Championship their best player will be Embiid.
    World Fucking Champions !!!!

    Caterer, I will only believe this if you confirm.

    My thoughts

    Eagles - They could quite possibly win it all this year. The stars are aligning.

    Phillies - The Best farm in MLB. Young star caliber talent already in place with a couple more on the way up. They also have boat load of cash to fill in the holes

    Sixers - They just barely edge out the Flyers. They only need a couple all-star caliber players. They appear to have them in the making, health is a factor.

    Flyers - Giroux, Voracek and Simmonds grow another year older. The only player to legitimately take a step up is Couturier, about 4 years later than all had hoped. They have a stud defensman and a lot of prospects, but I dont think the GM has a clue how to manage the actual product on the ice.

    If I had to rank 1-4 with best chances to win Championship:

    Eagles- Like Flip said they can win it this year. I try not to think that way as I can't fathom it happening and me living through the celebration
    Phllies- 2A- They have a good young core, a good farm and owners ready to spend a lot of money. I see them as a possible playoff team in 2 years and Championship contender in 3
    Sixers 2b - You need stars to win in the NBA and they have 2 studs and hopefully a 3rd in Fultz. It's much harder to get good in the NBA, but they should make the playoffs this year and by next they could be knocking on the door. Health is everything with this team. If they stay healthy Embiid is an MVP candidate and Simmons is not far behind.
    Flyers - I hate the coach
    World Fucking Champions !!!!

    Wentz is special. Rhys Hoskins is star in making. Simmons is an elite talent. Provorov is world class. Fun time to be a Philly sports fan.

    It has only been a decade since any of the 4 sports teams have been Championship contenders. It is about time eh?
