The Sixers have captured a lot of attention regarding their blatant tanking tactics. The question is: Is Sam Heinke evil? Judging his moves from afar, one begins to wonder if his tanking has gone too far. Other questions:

  1. If they were indeed tanking, why didn't they finish with the worst record in the NBA? If you're gonna tank, you should tank! 
  2. Are free agents scared of signing with Sam Heinke and the Sixers? We wonder if free agents won't want to sign there in the future. 
  3. Heinke treated Andre Kirilenko very badly which might affect future FA signings.
  4. When will Heinke turn on the switch? Is it that easy to go from bad to great?
  5. Drafting Jahlil Okafor over Porzingis was a bold move in the sense that no one expected it. 
  6. Nick Stauskas, Nerlens Noel, Robert Covington, and Tony Wroten are going to be key players this season.
  7. Do they have a shot at Ben Simmons next year?
