The Sixers, currently 0-14, actually played one of their better games this year against the Trailblazers last night. Yet, still a loss. This is bound to happen many more times this season, but how long will it be before the Sixers have a one in that win column? Mike Missanelli and Charles Barkley made a little bet about it.
Missanelli and Barkley both figure it’ll be a while before the Sixers win their first game, so they might as well get a little something out of it. Missanelli and Barkley agreed to a bet which states Missanelli will donate $200 to a charity of Barkley’s choice for each loss (thus losing money), and Barkley will join the Mike Missanelli Show the day after every Sixers loss (thus having to do stuff, which Charles hates). This will continue until they win that first game. The Sixers getting that first win so everyone can shut up about it would be nice, but money to charity is aways good and so is more Sir Charles on the radio.
But there is a technicality, according to the press release: “The 76ers are currently 0 and 14 and will play the San Antonio Spurs on Monday, Dec 1st the day the bet begins. If the 76ers win a game before that, the bet is off.” That leaves the Nets and Mavericks as the Sixers’ only possible bet-cancelling wins, so this thing will probably remain intact.
