As the Sixers take a 2-0 lead into Toronto we take a look at what a starting five would like look made of Eagles players.
Head Coach: Nick Sirianni
The king of the Mini-Hoop hits the hardwood. Sirianni will lead the squad just like on the football field, being the coach to bring the visor to NBA sidelines.
Point Guard: Jalen Hurts
Hurts is a natural leader which like the QB position is perfect for a point guard. He can score the ball, but would be a distributor first. Hurts would also be a good defender and can push the ball in transition. He will be able to utilize his read option skills from his college days.
Shooting Guard: Darius Slay Jr.
Slay would be the leading scorer on the team. He would be a prolific scorer as well as an elite defender just like on the football field.
Small Forward: Haason Reddick
Reddick would be the teams three and D player. He will use his size and athleticism on the defensive end while being able to knock down the three ball.
Power Forward: Dallas Goedert
Goedert would be an absolute beast on the court. Huge, athletic, and skilled Goedert can do a little bit of everything. He can dominate on the perimeter and on the outside.
Center: Tyree Jackson
The six foot seven and uber athletic Jackson will be an elite rim protector and a lob threat.
Bench: Boston Scott
Scott will be energy off the bench. Often like his running style he will be no non-sense and bring an attitude and different dimension to the team.
Bench: Quez Watkins
Quez is a microwave off the bench. He will be an instant offense, a truly deadly 3-point shooter.
Bench: Josh Sweat
Sweat would be a defensive anchor off the bench. He will mainly protect the rim but is also a key player in the pick and roll game.
