Forget about a Big 3, according to Philadelphia 76ers guard T.J. McConnell, the 76ers have a Big 4.

McConnell wrote the following over at the Players’ Tribune about his belief in the talent on the Sixers’ roster.

“So where does that leave us this year? Man, I don’t know. I don’t want to sound cocky……. but I like this team a lot.

We’ve got three of the 10-to-15 best players in the league, in Joel and Ben and Jimmy — I firmly believe that. And they’re only getting better, and better at playing with each other. We’ve got one of the most underrated players in the league in J.J. (I’m not sure why people talk about our Big 3, when it’s a Big 4.) We’ve got a bunch of young, hungry, talented role players. We’ve got a great head coach, with a great staff behind him.”

McConnell is certainly doing his part for the Sixers, pouring in averaging 6.0 points, 1.9 rebounds and 3.0 assists this season.
