Dumber & dumber & dumber & dumber…

This is getting ridiculous… even my boy Kyle Korver, the smartest player on the team, did his best but it wasn’t enough… what else can you say when the best free throw shooter in the League, a 92% shooter, goes 0-2 from the line with 2.3 seconds to play, up two? Well, it wasn’t enough… TO LOSE THE GAME, I mean
So instead of smartly tanking, we are setting a new world record: most useless wins in a season. The last one was a 92-90 game @ NY, that lifts us at a 30-44 record (.405). We are 25-26 after the Iverson trade, and we will rise more before the end of the season: just checked the schedule and it looks pretty easy. Or ugly, depending from your standpoint. Eight games to play, five at home, with one of the three on the road being at Boston.
We won’t make the playoffs, we won’t have a top pick either. Can it get any worse that this? You know we hate the “Negadelphia attitude”, but in this case pessimistic guys are right.
I expect the Sixers to pass another two-three teams in these last games (Sacramento, Minnesota, New York, maybe even Indiana) and end with the 9th-10th worst record, instead of the 4th-5th like it could, and should, have been. F’k.
On a side note, it’s funny how it took like five months to make the first post about my favourite Sixers player, Korver. I created the category about him in this blog today. And, btw Kyle… CAN YOU PLEASE SHOW SOME BALLS while shooting your damn free throws down the stretch? A couple of misses costed us a close game @ Milwaukee in November. Now it almost costed the game at the Garden.
Unless you were doing it on purpose. In case, I apologize.
