I can't wait to find out how I'll talk myself into Sixers playoff hopes this year. It's always a fun surprise. Will leave some draft predictions in the meantime:

Undervalued: Amen Thompson (#2 on my own board), Brice Sensabaugh, Gradey Dick, Leonard Miller
Overvalued: Cam Whitmore, Jalen Hood-Schifino
