Mike Conley scored 19 points and Zach Randolph had 14 to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 103-77 win Saturday night, sending the 76ers to a franchise-tying 20th straight loss.
As if Brett Brown’s job isn’t difficult enough already, he took some time to call season ticket holders and ask them to renew for the 2014-15 season.
I can come up with a reason that Sam Hinkie has made every move he’s been responsible for since taking over as president and general manager of the Sixers; except one.
The Pacers will finally get a chance to see what Andrew Bynum can do for them.
An April 7 trial has been scheduled for former Sixers player Richard Dumas on charges that he stole merchandise from Luke Air Force Base’s exchange store.
One thing that could provide a bit of a spark, for perhaps both the fans and some of the players, is the debut of rookie center Nerlens Noel. That spark could be on its way.
The Sixers have lost 15 straight games, with 21 to play. There are only two players, that are for sure, solid NBA players. The rest of the roster is made up of guys named Henry Sims and (GASP!) Byron Mullens. So it’s a fair question that many have asked; could the Sixers lose the rest of their games?
It took a few months, but the Sixers are as bad as we all expected them to be. With the second-worst record in the league, and closing in on the worst, the Sixers are last in the NBA in net efficiency, point differential, turnover rate, and more. They’ve lost 15 straight games, and there is no end in sight.
It was minutes before the Sixers eventual loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. I don’t call it an “eventual loss” because it’s the day after the game, and I know it was a loss. I call it that because the outcome was about as set-in-stone as it could have been, even just before the game. To the teams, to the fans, to the players, to the referees, to everyone.
I’ll admit, the Sixers may have abused his legacy a little bit. Every time they roll him out for another ceremony or press conference it seems contrived, but every time he sits down to talk or walks out on the court, I’m in awe. I love every second of it and I can’t help it.
The Sixers have lost 11 straight games, the most recent of which was to the team with the NBA’s worst record, the Milwaukee Bucks. The team traded two of its starters for a total of three second round picks. Of the players currently on the active roster, there are only two sure-fire NBA players. Still, things seem like they’re right on track.
Michael Carter-Williams has had a very up-and-down first year in Philadelphia, as the rookie point guard of the 76ers.
If there was even an excuse to fall asleep, even while sitting in great seats, at a sporting event, Monday night’s Sixers game would have given you that excuse.
Rebuilding in the NBA can be very ugly. Even when you’re calling it rebuilding, instead of what most everyone actually calls it, “tanking.
The two teams with the worst records in the NBA will battle on Monday night as the 76ers host the Milwaukee Bucks.
