Sixers Draft Pick You Forgot About Will Play in League You Didn’t Know About
Jordan McRae, one of the 400 players the 76ers drafted in the 2nd round this year, is going to be playing pro basketball in Australia. McRae was the 58th pick of the 2014 draft and traded to the 76ers from the Spurs, and will now suit up for Melbourne United in the NBL. McRae was named to the Second Team of the Summer League’s All-NBA squad when he averaged 21 points on 50% shooting in four appearances.
One report thinks the Sixers retain the right to call McRae back to the NBA until January, but if not, he’ll spend the year playing in the same league as Josh Childress. And that is what Josh Childress is up to.

Soothsayer Larry Mendte Says the Eagles Won’t Win the Super Bowl
Call of the parade, Eagles fans, the harbinger of Eagles success has announced that they will not win a Super Bowl this year, so let’s just pack it up. That Nostradamus of professional football is Larry Mendte, and he just knows this year is not the year:
After false prophets who came to Philadelphia and fell short of leading us to the Promised Land, Eagles fans believe they have found their Messiah. And I am now put in the unenviable position of having to yell at the Chipnotized, “Snap out of it! It’s not going to happen this year!”
That hurts to admit. There are just way too many questions. I believe Nick Foles can and will be a star in this league. But, the defense is still suspect, as is the kicker. Depth is also a problem. What happens if offensive linemen Jason Peters or running back LeSean McCoy gets hurt? Injuries at key positions are inevitable. The Eagles don’t have the depth at most positions to compensate.
The great prognosticator of the Philadelphia fan has spoken, and his will shall be done.
