I did not watch the matinee Martin Luther King Day game between the Sixers and Timberwolves, and am I glad I missed it. The Sixers blew a 20 point lead and lost to the lowly Wolves yesterday, leaving me to think that it is past time to make a change at head coach with this basketball team.
What has Eddie Jordan accomplished since being given the head coaching job by his buddy Ed Stefanski? He coached his team to the wrong end of a season sweep by the Clippers, has lost to the Knicks, Wizards and now the Wolves.
The woes of this team can not even be attributed to the addition of Allen Iverson, who has a track record of bringing teams down in his more recent seasons. Somebody in charge of the Sixers needs to step in and address the situation. The team is just flat out bad, and yet I feel as though there is more than enough talent to avoid the current 13-27 record they own today.
Paging Ed Snider. You have once again shown that you have no real interest in the Sixers, unlike your Flyers. We all know that Snider does not show an interest in the Sixers, much like the general Philadelphia fan base. But when your hockey team fires a coach with a winning record, how can you justify holding on to a basketball coach who has a team 14 games under .500? It just does not make sense to me.
As long as Jordan is at the helm, the Sixers seem to be going nowhere fast.
The argument is that the Sixers should tank the rest of the schedule in order to pick up more ping pong balls in the NBA Lottery. What do you think the Sixers should do?
