APBetter days are certainly coming for the “City of Brotherly Love,” as many believe that the Philadelphia 76ers’ talented youth movement will be enough to push them into playoff contention this upcoming NBA season.With the likes of Joel Embiid, Dario Saric, Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz in the fold—plus the fact that several big names have moved from the Eastern Conference to the West—a playoff run is becoming a more distinct possibility for the franchise.ADVERTISEMENT Jazz moving on from Hayward, but timing is ‘problematic’ “We want to take this a step at a time,” Colangelo explained. “We want to go about it the right way, with patience and the proper focus, and the focus is on taking that next step forward.”Although the team’s talent pool is indeed something to marvel at, both Fultz and Simmons have yet to log in a minute in an official NBA game, while Embiid has battled injuries throughout his budding career.Still, the East seems to be wide open for new contenders this year, with stalwarts Paul George and Paul Millsap moving to the West coast.Aside from its promising core, the Sixers also recently picked up solid veterans like sharpshooter J.J Redick and dependable big man Amir Johnson. Khristian Ibarrola /raADVERTISEMENT However, current Sixers General Manager and President of Basketball Operations Brian Colangelo is asking fans to temper their expectations for the time being.“I think any talk of playoffs is getting a little ahead of ourselves,” said Colangelo, according to NBA.com’s Scott Howard-Cooper.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSSEA Games: Biñan football stadium stands out in preparedness, completionSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSWin or don’t eat: the Philippines’ poverty-driven, world-beating pool stars“The East is definitely in flux right now and a lot of changes are happening,” he added. “A lot of changes are happening to this roster and we’re not going to know what we have until we actually play some games, when we get together in the fall and we go through a camp and we start to play live NBA games.”The entire city of Philadelphia, meanwhile, is fully embracing its “Trust the Process” mantra, which was popularized by former executive Sam Hinkie as a precaution for fans to be patient during the team’s consecutive losing seasons.

The Sydney Mets have beaten Sun Coast in a thrilling game in the Men’s 20’s final at the 2009 X-Blades National Touch League in Port Macquarie.The game was intense up until the final siren, with both teams desperately trying to take hold of the game, with the Mets eventually winning 8-7.Tim Good opened the scoring in the 5th minute, putting the Mets in front 1-0.The Mets nearly made it 2-0 two minutes later, but their touchdown attempt was disallowed. This came back to haunt them as Sean Baldwin from Sunshine Coast scored to level the game.Sun Coast was in again just two minutes later, when Kelvin Jones scored from a great ball from Jason Schmidt, to put them into the lead for the first time in the game.Tim Good scored his second try in the 11th minute, but soon after got sent from the field as a forced interchange, and Baldwin scored his double in the corresponding set of six, giving Sun Coast the lead again. Macquire Tatola and captain Matthew Yiangou both scored for the Mets in the last five minutes of the first half, sending the Sydney team to the half time break with a 4-3 lead, despite several disallowed touchdowns against the Mets in the first half.Dave Shaw extended the Mets lead soon after the break, giving them a two touchdown advantage.Back to back tries to Sun Coast put the teams on level terms, with tries to Luke Mendham and Zach Stasser, but it wasn’t long before Shaw scored his second touchdown of the game, capitalising on some slow defence on the line. The Mets’ Luke Eisenhuth broke through the line of defence in the 7th minute, fooling Sun Coast defenders on his way, giving the Mets some breathing space.This didn’t last long, however, with Nathan Sullivan the recipient of a great cut out pass to close the gap for Sun Coast six minutes out from full time. The Mets had many opportunities to run away with the game in the second half, but numerous penalties for forward passes and over the mark calls gave Sun Coast plenty of good field position.Another penalty in good field position gave Sun Coast a great opportunity to level the scores, and that’s what they did when captain Tyson Brough led by example, scoring in the 18th minute to level the scores.The scores weren’t level for long, as Ben Antonio dived through the Sun Coast defensive line in the next set of six, to put the Mets back in front with one minute to go.Sun Coast were disallowed a try due to a forward pass in the dying seconds, handing the Mets an 8-7 win.
