76ers secure top seed in Eastern Conference for first time since 2001, but know the real work starts now

CBS Sports


Article Summary:

The last time, and only other time, that the Sixers were the East’s top seed was in 2001 – when Allen Iverson was wearing a uniform for the franchise. Not only will the Sixers have homecourt advantage in every Eastern Conference series, they will also have to play only one of the second and third-seeded teams in the conference, rather than both. Considering the fact that it’s been two decades since the Sixers were the top team in the East heading into postseason play, it’s safe to say that the Philadelphia faithful will be beyond boisterous, even at 50 percent capacity. Before jumping ahead and focusing on how far the team still has to go to achieve the ultimate goal, Sixers fans should take a second to appreciate just how far the team has come.
