The Sixers are bad. Even the most trusting of process trusters is finding it hard to watch every game in full. I’ve given myself a vacation from the team until the new year for the sake of my own sanity. Still, if I’m going to watch a game in person, I wouldn’t mind doing it coutside and getting to talk Sam Hinkie’s ear off, trying to gain some insight into what’s going on in that pale head of his. Not everyone is me, though.
The Sixers are promoting a one-day DraftKings contest where the winner gets a “76ers Experience” with GM Sam Hinkie, which includes:
- Two (2) courtside tickets to the Toronto Raptors vs Philadelphia 76ers game on Saturday, January 9th
- Meet-and-greet opportunity with GM Sam Hinkie
- Watch pregame warmups from the team bench and receive a 3rd quarter locker room tour
- Dinner at the arena and receive an autographed jersey
Sounds great, right? Some people don’t think so:

Watching paint dry, yes. But watching paint dry and being able to say whatever you have the guts to say to Hinkie beforehand? That’s a good deal.
