Michael Wilbon Believes the Process Lasted Eight Years

ESPN - Pardon the Interruption

Pardon the Interruption co-host Mike Wilbon was not a Sam Hinkie fan.

A noted Process critic, Wilbon has previously exaggerated the length the Sixers’ rebuild on several occasions over the years, but this week he said something just totally outrageous:


“Isn’t it funny to see a team like the 76ers, who took eight years of… what was it called? The Process..”

Eight years? Eight years ago takes us back to Doug Collins’ first season, when the 41-41 Sixers lost to the Miami Heat in the first round of the playoffs. Jrue Holiday, Jason Kapono, and Elton Brand were on the roster back then.

So, no, the Process did not last eight years. It started in 2013 and ended in 2017, which is basically when the Sixers began being competitive again. You can dispute the starting and ending positions all day long, but the point is that Wilbon is full of shit and has no idea what he’s talking about.

Happy Friday.

    Who cares

  • Ben Simmons, Future Laker February 8, 2019 at 6:06 pm

    They tanked and destroyed the integrity of every NBA game they played in for five frigging years, only to then improve their roster by trading for a cancer no one wanted and making a couple of deals at the deadline with teams selling soon to be free agents.

    The Sixers and their fanbase are a disgrace. All that garbage to still be behind the Bucks and the Raptors and MAYBE be slightly better than the Celtics who would win a seven game series anyway.

    Fuck Junkie. The put a D league team on the floor. Did they lower ticket prices to D league level? He missed with as many draft picks as he hit. Fuck that dickhead.

  • Wil-bone says a lot of incorrect statements February 9, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    He is still pretty sharp and he is a fan of current Sixers as is Tony. They know the team is going to be lead topic for years to come. Both Tony and Mike were critical of the tanking but that is over. Even the Knicks who never tried tanking are doing it now. They are horrible but say they got lucky in draft land Williamson and sign Irving and Davis. Suddenly they are top three or four team in East. The Knicks have never been in a position where they have tons of cash available and can draft no worst than 3rd in draft.
