Mike Sielski: Saric and Embiid snubs show just how much 76ers have shaken up NBA

And so, after the superficial showmanship and glamour of the NBA awards show on Monday, after another sign that the league's athletes and executives and television partners see themselves as actors and rappers on a stage as much as they do competitors in the arena, the 76ers ought to have no illusions about their standing in the sport now. They're the outcasts and outsiders, the ones who dared to destroy the fragile web of consensus that holds together the league's entire entertainment complex, and it was difficult not to see Dario Saric's or Joel Embiid's failure to win the rookie of the year award as a small casualty of the Sixers' impertinence over the past four years.
