We're tankin.  I wanna tank it with you.  We're tankin.  And I hope you like tankin too.  We're tankin.  To think that tankin was a thing of the past.  We're tankin.  And I hope this tank is gonna last.  There's only a handful of games remaining for us to watch this incredible display of yucky.  The mission for W(all) T(urner) F(avors) treks onward tonight against the Johnny Salmons inspired male deer.  Until that time, enjoy the links on this beautiful Wednesday. 

Iguodala Wants to Play All 82

"I think it's important," Iguodala said of logging all 82 games. "No matter what the situation may be, you have to go out there and you have a job to do."

"Game-time I'll be ready to play, so I'm not really thinking about it," Iguodala said. "It's the same thing we've been doing the last couple of weeks."

"I wouldn't shut anybody down unless my doctors or the training staff tells me to do that," Jordan explained. "I want our best players on the floor so we can win games."

Eddie Jordan On Changes Now That Sixers are Eliminated

"No, it doesn't change anything," said Jordan after Tuesday's practice. "We want to be competitive. We want to continue to teach and develop and try to continue to show the team how to continue to play as a team and help each other, so we can win ballgames."

Brendan Haywood Says EJ Had Players Compete for Playing Time, Ruined Team

"In Washington, [coach Eddie Jordan] made it known it was an open competition. This isn't a competition. [Jordan] felt like that competition fueled the team. It was actually terrible for the team. This is more along the lines of, whoever is playing the best, put him in the game and let's try to get something done."

"Losing teams have competitions between players for playing time. That's what we were doing in D.C. That's losing basketball."

Shocker! Chances of Wright Leaving Nova Not Good

"I just hope it doesn't happen," the Villanova coach reiterated yesterday. "I really do. [I hope] no one contacts me and I can just coach at Villanova. That's what I want to do. That's really the truth. That's what I do right now."

"No one's contacted me," Wright insisted. "I'm happy about that. I love my job. Unless something changed here, I don't think I want to go anywhere."

Sixers Provide Only Bright Spot for Philly Sports Last Week

We need them to be bad. To stink. To be horrible. Really, really horrible. Tofu-cheesesteak horrible.

And bless their playing-out-the-string hearts, the Sixers don’t seem to be doing that with much heart. Each loss — and there’s been three in the last week alone, part of a joyous 2-11 March — sends them careening toward the bottom of the standings and toward the top of the NBA draft lottery.

Fred Carter Wants '72 Sixers to Remain the Best Losers

"We weren't fortunate to win NBA titles. This gives us a different immortality," says Carter, 65. "We were never talked about until this. … (Now) people want to talk to Fred Carter."

Lou and Thad Stay in Philly as Team Traveled to Milwaukee

Williams (back spasms) remains considered day-to-day. Young (fractured thumb) could be out for the rest of the season.

Itty Bitty Wittle Awin Iverson

Is it just me or does he look terrified in that picture?

Completely Un-Sixer-Related News of the Day: Tommy Mason-Griffin Gets Most Out of Oklahoma Education

Tommy Mason-Griffin poetically declared for the draft on Facebook: "its a official dat i am leavin skool....ask me y i aint doin anotha yr yue mite get ignored." Yeah, I think he's gotten all he can from higher education.
