Philadelphia 76ers Release a Hype Video Ahead of Playoffs
It's been a long time coming, but the regular season has finally concluded. After the Philadelphia 76ers wrapped up game number 82 on Wednesday night against the Chicago Bulls, they officially got locked into playoff mode. Now, the third-seeded Sixers will be set to face the Brooklyn Nets for their opening series of the playoffs, which is set to tip-off this Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center.
For a while now, the Sixers knew that they would be entering the postseason for the second consecutive season. Therefore, they launched this year's playoff campaign a day early. As fans entered into the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night for the final matchup of the regular season, many were granted with a car magnet that resembled the Sixers' playoff logo from last season. Once again, the Sixers will break out the 'Phila Unite' campaign with the same logo design as the previous year, which the Sixers announced and explained on Wednesday.
The Sixers are set to take on the Nets for Game 1 of the series on Saturday afternoon. While the two-day wait can cause tons of anticipation and eventually feel like it's taking forever, the Sixers' video production team decided to put together a two-minute hype video to promote their playoff campaign. As expected, the video did not disappoint.
With intense background music mixed in with such a serious commentary, the video team did an excellent job of capturing some of the 2018-2019 season's crucial moments. As always though, the Sixers couldn't leave out historical moments of the past either. With highlights from the days of becoming world champions, to the famous Allen Iverson step-over, the Sixers' social media team gave fans across the internet a phenomenal preview of what's to come in the first round of the playoffs. It won't be easy and might get often intense, but that's what playoff basketball is all about.
