Philadelphia 76ers Notes, Quotes 2008-03-07
--Former Sixers' great Andrew Toney, who was supposed to be honored at halftime of Monday's game against the Celtics in honor of the 25th anniversary of the 1982-83 championship, has decided not to make the trip up from Atlanta. Toney had been upset at the former Sixers' regime for doubting that he had stress fractures in his feet that cut short his career, but team representatives had thought he would attend this time.

--G Willie Green is glad that the national media hasn't caught on to how well the Sixers are playing.

"I hope they don't (realize)," Green said. "I don't want (TV) analysts to talk about us or Philadelphia sports writers. Let us go under the radar and continue to win games."

--Friday's game matched the league's two youngest players in the Sonics' Kevin Durant (19 years, five months) and the Sixers' Thaddeus Young (19 years, eight months). Young had 18 points, nine rebounds, three assists and no turnovers to Durant's 14 points, three rebounds, two assists and six turnovers.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "Any time we're the favorite and we're the team that doesn't want to have a letdown, that means we're headed in the right direction. Before, we were the team that wasn't favored and the team we played didn't want to have a letdown against us." -- G Willie Green, who helped the Sixers beat the overmatched SuperSonics, 117-83.
