This late afternoon edition of “Fo’ with the Foes” — Philadunkia’s advanced scouting series which with the help of an accomplished journalist from around the NBA beat or blog world, previews upcoming 76ers opponents — features tonight’s foe, the young, talented and highlight reel producing Oklahoma City Thunder.
This is going to be a very interesting game featuring two very young, athletic teams that shoot the rock poorly and play two completely different styles of ball. OKC values defense and has a certified, go-to NBA superstar in Kevin Durant to rely on when they need big buckets. The Sixers play absolutely no defense and are a “star-less” squad on which you never know who is going to hoist the big shot during a given game. Even though on paper Philadunkia’s home team appears to be an underdog in this one, we think the Sixers players may have a chip on their shoulder right now over today’s addition of Allen Iverson to the roster and they may be out to prove something. So we boldly predict a 76ers W tonight.
For a little more insight into the Thunder team the Sixers face tonight, we turn to our man Royce Young from thedailythunder.com to answer two questions on the Thunder from us here at Philadunkia as well as provide us with two points of analysis on this OKC squad from an insider’s perspective.
