The 76ers season is set to tip tomorrow and every year our friends over @Philadunkia ask all the staff writers for their predictions on the upcoming season in 200 words or less.  With all the changes and the complete shake-up of the roster this summer it is somewhat difficult to predict exactly how the team will perform, but regardless it is sure to be an interesting and exciting season for the 7-6. Below is my The  Philadelphia 76ers made a a lot of moves this summer, and one thing is certain; the 2012-2013 76ers squad will look quite different than the one we last saw take the Celtics to seven games in the Eastern semis last Spring.  With the addition of superstar center and potential future of the franchise Andrew Bynum it seems as though the team is taking steps in the right direction in order to return to elite status.  Despite the infusion of talent this offseason however, I would still expect some growing pains from this team throughout the season, especially early on as all of the new parts learn to play together.  The team was an impressive 6-1 in the preseason and showed a great range of offensive versatility and depth.  Preseason however isn’t always the best predictor of regular season success and the Sixers still have some issues, including the health of their prized offseason pick-up and potential defensive mismatches.  Despite the difficulty of the division in which they play, I expect the Sixers to finish the season 50-32 and at least challenge for home court in the first round.  Though they are heading in the right direction to truly compete for a title in a year or two, I would expect another exit in the Eastern Conference Semi’s this season, providing a successful season with which the team can build upon.  Technorati Tags: Philadelphia 76ers,Andrew Bynum,NBA,Boston Celtics.
