The Sixers Won

Voila_Capture 2014-03-30_12-30-27_PM

I was rooting against the Sixers last night, hard. They actually could’ve accomplished something in this steaming pile of a season. It would’ve been a unique distinction to be the tankiest of all tankers ever. But they flashed some pride and crushed the Pistons. Good for them, I suppose. I’m disappointed. But I respect their effort last night.

And you got to appreciate Brett Brown. He’s up-front about what’s going on and intensely passionate about the future. His post-game press conference last night was fantastic. Watch this part where he talks about young players. It’s… moving. Or at least certainly more moving than anything Doug Collins said last season during press conferences in which he seemed more interested in talking about his son’s college coaching career and being deeply introspective about his own legacy than basketball.

    Well, good for the Sixers to finally win a game for a change. But the amazing part was that over 17,000 showed up on a cold, rainy night, and while half the crowd were probably rubberneckers looking for the Sixers to achieve infamy, I was still impressed that they got such a big crowd. Meanwhile, even after 26 straight losses, the Sixers STILL don’t have the worst record in the league. Amazing.

  3. As much praise as David Stern got for being commissioner of the NBA forever, he never did come up with a decent alternative to the draft system.
    Instead we have this clusterfuck of an embarrassment that’s not good for the sport or even for the team necessarily.

    If they can’t properly maximize their draft after this shitshow I’d rather they just move away.

      Remember a few years ago when they threatened to move to New Jersey? Shoulda let them.

        Yeah but if they actually do get Wiggins and maybe Vonleh they might at least be worth watching non-ironically again.

    Boy, did I turn out to be a whiny little cunt, or what?

    I’m the only one who doesn’t seem to realize how much of a quitting, self-absorbed pussy I came across as on my way out the door.

  6. Shit. We won.

    How’d that happen?

  7. Wiggins, Jabari Parker, Joel Embiid…seriously, nobody knows which of the three are going number one. I’d say the 76ers don’t have to get number 1 to pull off a stellar draft. 2 top tens almost guaranteed is (no matter what) going to be an awesome haul.
