As a Sixer fan it's hard to be happy with the team. We had hopes at the beginning for a winning season, building on last season's success. Instead we have an idiot coach. Injuries and losses. I found Pete Carril, the father of the Princeton Offenses comments interesting. He said he thought the Sixers needed a point guard to run it a direct contradiction from Eddie Jordan's thoughts.
So now what do we want? Is the season lost and should we want to get a good draft pick or make the playoffs?
And if we do make the playoffs, what are your expectations, and what would make it a successful season or a bad one?
My view is that the season is not lost. Although my target of 50 games is almost out of reach, every other objective, including 4th seed is still in play. The only team I'm really concerned with avoiding is Cleveland. Until we play that team and beat them, they are a team we should avoid an early round seeding against.
Right now the Sixers have the chance to make up some ground. They blew it a bit, by losing games to Washington and LA, but their upcoming schedule is the Clippers, Denver, Washington, Toronto, Detroit, NO, and NY. All of these games except the Denver game should be wins. If they can go 6-1 over these next seven games things will start looking up.
Now, however, there is the additional problem of a bad coach. Even if the Sixers win I still want this guy gone. Winning makes this less likely. Like I said, it's hard to be a Sixers fan.
