Hey Look, We Lost Another One

June 10, 2010

Well we’re back to being Philadelphia. It was fun while it lasted but we should have known better.

It ended in silence. No alarms or fanfare, Patrick Kane beat Leighton after the Flyers failed to capitalize on several scoring opportunities.

I would love to see them move Jeff Carter and hope Hartnell’s play wasn’t an aberration. Mike Richards might want to realize its the Stanley Cup Finals next time.

Ville Leino is really, really good.

I’ll leave you with this ode to the 2009-2010 Flyers:


Where’s The Fire Sale?

February 17, 2010

As Thursday’s NBA trade deadline approaches, there’s finally a reason to talk about the Sixers!

We’d love to see a fire sale considering there are no building blocks.  Young core?  Thaddeus Young has regressed, Marreese Speights and Lou Williams are allergic to defense but there’s always Royal Ivey.

Rebuild around Ivey and Primoz Brezec!

There’s nothing like blowing the whole thing up to escape the void of mediocrity the Sixers seem to find more comfortable than a pair of stained sweatpants.

Then we read this.

Ed Stefasnki will only make a move that makes “basketball sense.”

So no to Tracy McGrady’s expiring contract or Amare Stoudemire.   Stefanski would have to admit he’s made a chain reaction of decisions that make less sense than and were worse the movie Chain Reaction.

There is no other way in the NBA to get better than completely suck for awhile and either sign a slam dunk free agent a la Garnett or draft LeBron James.

The Sixers front office are the anti-Phillies.  Every move they make is the absolute worst.

They have succeeded in making professional basketball obsolete in Philadelphia:

The new Sixers marketing campaign should be:

We can barely trick 500 more people than the Nets to attend our home games!  PRINCETON OFFENSE 4EVER!
