It would be easy to get caught up in the success Philadelphia enjoyed this postseason and be fooled into thinking this team is close to winning a title. Helped by arguably the easiest early-season schedule (finished No. 20 in overall strength of schedule) and a relatively injury-free campaign (had the second-lowest number of games missed by players), the 76ers still finished as the No. 8 seed. Does anyone really think they would have made it to the second round if Chicago Bulls stars Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah were not injured?
