Well, this should be a good one. After all, Heat star Jimmy Butler used to play for the 76ers.
That means Butler used to be a teammate of Sixers star Joel Embiid. But now Butler has a team all his own, and the Heat just happened to finish with the top seed in the Eastern Conference. They are balanced, well-coached, confident.
Meanwhile, Embiid has a new sidekick in James Harden, and look fairly different from when Butler was there. Who’s better off today — Embiid and the Sixers, or Butler and the Heat?
