Sixers’ Cheeks Still Milking National Anthem Goodwill From 2003


With the off season acquisition of Elton Brand, expectations for the Sixers 2008 season were high but with a 7-10 record, things haven’t gone as planned. 

Surprisingly Sixers head coach Mo Cheeks hasn’t come under much scrutiny. 

Cheeks had this to say, “We’re not where we want to be right now but with the Phillies’ championship and the Eagles kind of imploding, it’s really taken a lot of heat and attention away from us.  I bet Andy Reid won’t run much against the Giants, boy doesn’t he like to throw the ball? Also, do you remember when I helped that little girl who forgot the words to the Star Spangled Banner on April 25, 2003?  That was really, really cool of me.” 

Cheeks then said that all the Sixers need is another 4 months to “gel”.  He also blamed the Sixers’ inability to hit threes on the season ending injury to center Jason Smith.
