    With the latest moves, 76ers have assembled a superteam. On paper they are better than any other team in the East and on par with Warriors.

    They now have the roster to win the East and win the championship.

    Agree or disagree?

    I saw a bit of their last game and they look scary.
    As a Bucks fan I prefer 100% the Celtics over them.
    Let the Raptors and Philly fight it out and exhaust each other in 7 games.

    They are deeper than the Warriors but their stars are not better overall than the Worriers. Not close yet.

    They look scary as their role players such as Redick and McConnell are absolutely hitting everything now. Let's see if they cool off.

    If Tobias can be that 20+ ppg dude, that is indeed scary.

    ...but how do they stand in the repeater tax? Because that is what matters the most.

    This was meant to be a joke but is actually a good point.
    Their ownership group hasn't shown any signs so far in the past that they would be willing to actually pay the tax let alone the repeater tax. They had Hinkie doing some complex moves that had them actually paying as little as allowed by the rules.

    I don't believe that they will be willing to be paying 3 max contracts + signing 1 max rookie extension in the books, next season unless they actually make the finals.
