Everyone is focused on the NBA Finals, and with good reason. But there are 28 other teams in the NBA, each with a plan to get where the Cavs and Warriors are right now.
And if I told you the Sixers had the best plan of them all, would you believe me? Vinny DelNegro and Joel Meyers of Sirius XM NBA Radio were skeptical when the subject came up in this interview, especially when I said that a decade from now we'll be taking about a dynasty in Philly.
And as I told DelNegro when he questioned my prediction, it will not take a decade for the Sixers to be contending for championships. It'll take five years -- maybe less. And that is why 10 years from now, we'll be talking dynasty. It's what happens in years 6-10 that'll move the discussion to that next level.
Everyone likes to poke fun at Sam Hinkie these days, calling him the best tank driver since Michael Dukakis. But they used to say similar things about Sam Presti, who tanked and put together a core of Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden that should have won multiple championships by now if now for the ill-advised decision to trade Harden rather than max him out.
But Presti was having to operate under a tight salary cap, which is something Hinkie will not have to deal with. By the time Nerlens Noel, Joel Embiid, Dario Saric and others finish their rookie scale contracts, the salary cap will be well over $100 million -- and teams will be able to carry at least three max players on their roster. If Hinkie plays his cards right, he'll have a core of five or six studs to build with over the next half-decade and beyond. Nobody has ever built a team this way, and by the time it is all said and done, Hinkie will be in the Hall of Fame. Mark my words on that, because you heard it here first.
The recent resurgence of Ryan Howard and Chase Utley, the Flyers' hiring of Dave Hakstol and the Sixers' options with the No. 3 overall pick in the NBA Draft will be among the topics discussed Sunday (6:30-7 p.m.) by Ron Opher, Gordon Glantz, Josh Landsburg and Eric Fisher. Call-ins are welcome at 1-805-727-7014.
It is easy to declare the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Milwaukee Bucks the winners of trade deadline day, because both will be in the playoffs and both made exceptional moves.
But the team I have declared the bigest winner of all is the Philadelphia 76ers, because they were able to get their hands on the Top 5 protected pick that the Los Angels Lakers owed to the Phoenix Suns. It is never easy trading away a player as good as Michael Carter-Williams, who is the reigning Rookie of the Year. But having a chance to build a team that can be a powerhouse for a full decade is an opportunity not to be dismissed, and general manager Sam Hinkie has put his team in that position.
Not everyone agrees with me, and the patience of fans in Philadelphia is being tested.
Also, Hinkie is getting a lot of criticism for tanking the season, but if the rules give a team an incentive to tank, what is wrong with operating within the rules?
I debated the Sixers situation, the wisdom of it, and the chances of it succeeding, with Jody MacDonald and Josh Innes on WIP Radio in Philly. Enjoy.
Did the Sixers make the right move by trading Michael-Carter Williams? Do you believe in GM Sam Hinkie's plan? Join Eric Fisher, Ron Opher and Gordon Glantz as they discuss those questions, the Eagles' silence during the offseason, the Flyers' playoff quest and the questions surrounding the Phillies as they begin spring training. Call-ins are welcomed.

Last weekend was full of British fighters, and we had some fun times in a number of those scraps. On Sky Sports, Kell Brook laced up Frankie Gavin, Lee Selby annexed a belt from Evgeny Gradovich, Jorge Linares outlasted Kevin Mitchell in a brutal go, Amir Khan got past a surprisingly scrappy Chris Algieri on Spike... But likely the talk of the weekend was Anthony Joshua's quick demolition job on Kevin Johnson. Even crazier is that Patrick Connor, boxing historian and contributor to The Fight City, and James Foley of Bad Left Hook welcome back Sam Sheppard of The Queensberry Rules, to give us a firsthand perspective of most of it. This coming weekend, Miguel Cotto wonkily defends the middleweight title against Daniel Geale at a catchweight on HBO, but not before Robert Guerrero takes on Aron Martinez for Premier Box
Tonight’s show will feature Dr. Sam Clovis.
Sam is an economics professor at Morningside College in Sioux City Iowa, as well as a former GOP Senate candidate and grassroots political activist.
Given Iowa’s prominent role in presidential politics, we will be discussing the 2016 race, as it looks on the ground in that pivotal state.
We will be raising key questions such as, who is currently the most viable candidate in the race, and, do conservatives and libertarians have a place at the table?
Which candidate can build the most viable coalition that will appeal to multiple GOP factions, without kowtowing to the Establishment?
We may also have another guest on at 10-00 p.m. CST discussing gay conversion therapy, but that remains to be seen.
As for now, please tune in at 9-00 p.m. CST for a lively discussion with grassroots activist and political observer Sam Clovis.
Our show airs at www.blogtalkradio.com/andrecontroversa, and our call-in number is 914-803-4350.
See ya then.

Lamont Banks, Sam Thurman, Cliff Stewart, and Lisa Stewart of the Colorado exoneration firm A Just Cause, discuss what happens when the wheels of justice trample unbridled over the rights of innocent Americans.
Although the American system of justice is the most-respected worldwide, it is still a system designed, and operated, by humans, which means it's not perfect. Lamon, Sam, Cliff, and Lisa will highlight ongoing struggles against "the system" to free wrongfully imprisoned people, and what happens when justice miscarries against an actually innocent person.
A Just Cause is currently campaigning for "FreeTheIRP6," who's been wrongly imprisoned in Florence, CO for a crime they didn't commit. Read full story: www.freetheirp6.org.
