Spurs too strong for slumping Sixers - Bob Cooney, Philly.com
Sent packing: Sixers fall to Spurs to start road trip - Paul J. Weber (AP), via CSNPhilly.com
That would be six straight losses for the basketball team, dropping the Sixers to 5-12. Only three teams in the NBa have a worst record. The Knicks are 3-14, the Timberwolves are 2-15 and the Nets are an astonishing, yet somehow believable, 0-17.
Are we already at the point in the season where you almost hope the Sixers fail to make the playoffs and hope they lose more to increase their chances in the NBA lottery? They are only 2.5 games out of the eighth and final seed in the Eatsern Conference.
Right now, talk of Iverson's return to Sixers is just that - Bob Cooney, Philly.com
Allen Iverson to Philadelphia 76ers is still a strong possibility - Mark J. Miller, Yahoo Sports
The Allen Iverson Watch continues as well. again, I see any possible Iverson reunion from both sides of the fence, so I have yet to really determine my official stance on the issue. On one hand I would be fine seeing Iverson return, if just for the sake of seeing the franchise receive some positive coverage on a national scale. But on the other hand I see no reason to believe that Iverson rescues this team and makes this team better. I am a fan of player development and Iverson more than likely impedes the growing process rather than supplements it.
What do you think?
