76ers' skid hits 11 - Kate Fagan, Philly.com
Engine trouble: Sixers fall to Pistons to extend skid - Dei Lynam, CSNPhilly.com
The second game of the Allen Iverson Reunion home stand took place last night at the Wachovia Center as his third former team, the Detroit Pistons, had a date with the Sixers. On the court it was much of the same as the basketball team took their eleventh straight loss. The Sixers are now 5-17 in the 2009-2010 season.
So my question for those who follow the team closer than I do is what exactly is the biggest problem with the team? Talent? Coaching? Luck?
Iverson scored 11 points for the second straight time back in a Sixers uniform. Good thing I have not played him in fantasy basketball yet!
Forbes report: Sixers slip in value - Philly.com
As you might expect the value of the Sixers as a franchise took a dip. Forbes reports that the 76ers are valued at $344 million, which is about 4% lower than they were last year. According to the Forbes report the Sixers are the 14th most valuable team in the NBA. Five years ago they were the fifth most valuable franchise.
the most valuable franchise? The Los Angeles Lakers at $607 million. The New York Knicks of all teams is the second most valuable franchise at $586 million. Rumor has it that just the name "New York" is reason for about $400 million of the Knicks.
