3. Will the Sixers win the Eastern Conference?
It’s too early to tell if the Sixers are truly equipped with enough weapons and experience to take down all of the top teams in the Eastern Conference. But after a few bold moves at the trade deadline, the team is much better off. Although Wahlberg is a Boston Celtics fan, he kept it pretty unbiased and was curious to know what Butler thought about winning the Eastern Conference.
He won’t come right out and say yes, but “I think we got a good chance,” is good enough. Butler went on to state that the Sixers are still learning. Clearly, with the new guys around, the chemistry isn’t all there one-hundred percent yet but hopefully by playoff time the Sixers are ready to take over the East.
