Thinking Through LeBron-to-the-Sixers Rumors

I need help. The last couple of months have been a whirlwind for Philadelphia sports fans. It started in early February, when the Eagles, led by a backup quarterback, took down Tom Brady and the Patriots in the Super Bowl. I was pretty level-headed about that, I think. Now, I’m being forced to contemplate the impossible again: LeBron James joining the Sixers this summer. What started out as a backfire out of the muffler of NBA Twitter feels … kind of … real … real-ish? And it’s making me ask all sorts of questions about wanting to win and how you win.
