OK, I’M TIRED of all this talk and focus on the growth and development the Sixers have shown during these NBA playoffs.
Blah, blah, blah. Yada, yada, yada. Booooooring.
Enough, we’re harping on something that was a given.
They were things that were going to happen by osmosis they moment Andre Iguodala sank those two free throws in Game 6 against the Chicago Bulls to send the Sixers to the second round of the playoffs.
The first two games against the Boston Celtics were automatically learning experiences because, except for veteran Elton Brand, no key member of the rotation had ever been out of the first round.
Tonight, when the Sixers resume their series with the Celtics in Game 3 at the Wells Fargo Center, it will be another new adventure for this youthful squad.
But assessing that growth is something for later.
Right now, the Sixers have a unique opportunity to do something special.
