Which would you prefer?

That was painful. I can still taste the bile in my mouth, and the coffee isn't helping. Trying desperately to find a reason to keep watching this team, as it's early in the season, and they might get better. Although, I'm pretty well jumping on the #MissionBJ bandwagon. 

If there is a glimmer of sunshine in all this gloom, it may be this:

You have to admit they're much more competitive than last year.

But is that a good thing? Last year, I was pretty much able to walk away from them once I realized that they sucked, didn't play a compelling brand of basketball, and had no testicles (figuratively speaking, of course). Of course, I would check the scores, read the blogs, etc. But no putting off work from paying clients to watch the game and then sitting up til 2 AM doing what I should have been doing while the game was on. This year, the problem with the Sixers is not necessarily that they're losing all their games, but it's that they could have won almost all of them. They're almost always in it. And then they lose.

So, the question is, at least as I see it, would you rather the Sixers play their current highly compelling form of losing basketball, or would you prefer the Eddie Jordanesque mess we had last year, which could be easily ignored?

The pro of this year's team is, you can see some hope for the future. You can see that with some experience and a solid two-way big, this could be a dangerous team. But right now, they suck you in and then rip out your colon and eat it in front of you.

The pro of the Eddie Jordanaires is that you didn't have to give a crap about them, and could go on about your business knowing that they just sucked. It's sort of reassuring, like an old blanket that perhaps smells like crap, but you're used to it.
