It's All-Star Weekend, so we thought we would find out about what fellow All-Stars and other players think about your new-look Sixers. Obviously, they've been good, but they added more depth, more athleticism, more scoring, more star power, and you look at that starting lineup and it's really good, and you've got TJ (McConnell) coming off the bench with James Ennis and Jonathon Simmons, so it gives you some athleticism coming off the bench. It will be interesting to see how much better they can get, adding Tobias Harris and those guys, because they have already shown they can be one of the top teams in the East, so with those new additions, I think the sky is the limit for them.

Tobias Harris scored 25 points and Ben Simmons had 18 for the 76ers, who bounced back from their 112-109 home loss to Boston on Tuesday, sending themselves into the All-Star break with a 37-21 record. They went 7-5 during a difficult stretch of their schedule that included the trade with the Clippers to acquire Harris.
Often times players can be hidden under the radar, especially when they're on a team full of stars. For J.J. Redick of the Philadelphia 76ers, this is what's happened. The Sixers have four stars. Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, and Tobias Harris collectively make up one of the NBA'
