If there’s one thing that we can all be sure of in sports, says Jeffrey Breault, it’s that the ball is literally never in anyone’s court because games, as history has often showed, can go either way. We see an underdog suddenly rising from the ashes to take the championship and we see shoo-ins going home empty-handed. And that’s the most exciting part about sports; everyone has a fair shot at winning, it’s the circumstances that affect the results for the most part, says Jeffrey Breault.
Take the Philadelphia 76ers for instance. The last time they won an NBA Championship title was in 1983, after they defeated the Los Angeles Lakers 4-0. It was all downhill from there, as far as rivals and fans are concerned (but not Jeffrey Breault). The next time they brought home any sort of title was in 2001 (Conference and Division titles). And then, it was one dismal campaign after the next for more than a decade.
In the 2012 NBA Playoffs, then 8th-seed Philadelphia 76ers defeated 1st-seed Chicago Bulls 4-2 and in the 2018 NBA Playoffs, the 76ers once again proved their mettle when they defeated the favored Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference First Round, winning 4-1.
We have yet to see the full results of the 2018-2019 NBA season and Jeffrey Breault doesn’t want to jinx it by discussing the details right now. He shares though that in the week of December 31 – January 6, 76ers center Joel Embiid was named Player of the Week for the Eastern Conference.
Indeed, it’s a great time to be a 76ers fan!
