Philadelphia 76′ers: Their Super Stretch Five

Brett Brown’s Philadelphia 76′ers are going nowhere this season but that doesn’t mean the future isn’t bright.  Adding next year’s lottery pick to Michael Carter-Williams, Thaddeus Young and (probably) Evan Turner (needs a new contract) Philly actually has much to build upon.

The truly unique piece of their offense is Brown’s seven-footer splashing threes.  Spencer Hawes might be having the best three-point shooting season for any center ever.  Take a look at this short list of centers who made at least one 3-pointer/game and shot 40% from beyond the arc in a full season:
