    How high will the 76ers set the bar for futility?

    The 76ers are 0-16

    The record is 0-18

    The next game is against the Spurs, let's assume the lose that and then got to Minny. They have a shot there, perhaps against OKC and likely Detroit. But if they can't get a win in the next four games, they might have to wait until Dec 15th when they host Boston (and I'd put my money on Boston).

    So, lookin at the games they got coming up from now until Jan 17th (I just assume it won't last into the new year), when do you think the 76ers will earn that first win? They have a tough road stretch starting with a winnable game against Orlando, but Orlando seems to be playing at a much higher level than Philly, as bad as both teams might be.

    Why did the chicken cross the basketball court?
    Because he heard the refs were blowing fowls.

    I feel bad for the fans that support that team- they threw away a playoff team with jrue holiday and iggy to go into this mode and they keep throwing away seasons. Noel doesnt look THAT great either. maybe mediocrity and a middle of the pack team isnt the best way to win a ring- but id rather root for a team thats competitive year in and year out than root for a team that tanks for 10 yrs to maybe become a contender in yr 11

    more to the point- how does building a culture of tanking attract any big name free agent. They are almost assuring themselves that they will be attracting the free agents who are just about getting paid and not about winning- and thus the losing culture continues

    yeah but yall do it every single year... eventually you gotta atleast see what you have with the lotto picks. its pathetic- your in the east. I could find 5 jr high girls that could make the playoffs out east.

    Also- what types of free agents do you think will want to come to a team that puts no interest in winning games since iverson took them to the finals 20 yrs ago.

    at what point is enough enough?

    also- in regards to the cba- the 76ers cant complain about losing money when they arent even trying to put a decent product on the floor year in and year out

    2 Things:

    1- They won't be able to pay all these players once their rookie are over and they're start peaking.

    2- These players will get so used to losing that will never care about winning. MCW NBA record after 2 seasons could easily be 20-144

    Good points, but especially the bolded. I've said this before too, it's almost like they're doin all this work gathering and grooming players only for them to be snatched up by a more savvy team when they've actually reached potential to be worth something.

    this also true idd. the only free agents who are gonna come to philly are stat padding stars like lance and rudy gay. players like that wont win you anything in the long haul

    i hope in 2 years all the somewhat developed good philly players (like mcw, nerlens noel etc) wil just leave and they and up with the worst team ever and no picks anymore. that would be awesome. no offense to sixers fans
