14 Wins Away (And Vodka Sodas?!)
The Opening Tip
Hello and Happy Thursday, it's the Corner Three
Again... THE PRICE GOES UP! Stateside has taken their best in the business vodka, put in in a can with some bubbles and pure fruit juice, and you get 95 calories of pure joy. No added sugar (or fake sugar). No gluten (!!!). No weird seltzer aftertaste that you have convince yourself you don't taste.
It comes in four flavors, Black Cherry, Orange, Pineapple and Lemon Cucumber Mint. Pick up an 8-can party pack right here so you can be prepped for summer.
Oh Yeah,The Sixers
Up 2-0! The last time the Sixers were up 2-0 in a playoff series was 2003 I had braids down my back and Nike headbands in almost every color. (Seth please be OK)
5 Big Questions (Playoff Edition!)
Biggest Playoff Surprise thus far?
I can't believe how pedestrian the Clippers have looked thus far, against a team they purposefully tanked to matchup with! Just so wild that they are facing the same exact problems as last year, just a completely unserious team right now.
Thoughts on Playoff Ben & Tobias?
Really, seriously am head over heels with the way both of these men are playing right now. Tobias is playing tough, attacking mismatches, and just being ultra aggressive and damn if you can't say the same for Ben. This team is so much more dangerous when these two are attacking and putting pressure on the other team on the offensive end and making guys guard them.
Doc's rotations so far?
No qualms. He tried to sneak in a non-shooter lineup last night for about 4 minutes but other than that my mouth is shut.
Concerned about Sixers transition D?
This is a great series to work the kinks out. They're just so much better than Washington that it probably won't matter, but future playoff opponents will immediately realize that flaw and work to exploit it.
Bold prediction for rest of series
Sixers go up 20 in both games and don't look back. Closing em out on Memorial Day. Apologies to the cowards.
The Rest From The Best
Much, much more like it. Our guy Sixers Adam with Three Normal Playoff things from last night's action.
Two games deep and it's time for some bold predictions. Who hits a game winner? Who gets an opposing star ejected? The great Mike O'Connor has it all.
This year's playoff field is collectively swarming with former Sixers, some we love, others we lament. In any event, Andrew Unterberger ranked them all by how much he wants them to succeed.
The pods are LIVE immediately after games on YouTube. The guys take questions and comments from the stream, and occasionally you can see Producer CJ's bedroom. It might get dark for Mike once they lose a game but for now, seeing the perverse joy as they read Scott O'Neil's review of his own book is worth it. Subscribe to the channel here, and you get the MOC breakdowns as well.
