After discussing the Mavericks NBA Finals upset of the Heat at length, there’s one thing all of us here at the Philadunkia offices can agree on — as a team, the 76ers are closer to being the Dallas Mavericks then they are to bing the Miami Heat. When you first think about that statement, it’s great news, considering the Mavs just won the NBA title.
However, the key words in the above paragraph are “closer to being”. Make no mistake about it, the Sixers are NOT the Dallas Mavericks and they have a long way to go before they can compete for an NBA title like the Mavs did this past season. Still there are enough similarities between the two franchises that there are a few ideas that helped Dallas grab the championship hardware which if applied properly here in Philadelphia could push the Sixers to the next level.
The Philadunkia staff took notes during the Mavs destruction of the Heat and from those notes we complied a list of 5 Things the 76ers Can Learn from the 2010-11 Mavericks.
Check out the list after the jump.
