Let's get a win! Or at least not get embarrassed?

Pre-Game Notables:

  • Tony Wroten will start tonight in advance of getting the night off tomorrow, when Kendall Marshall will make his season debut. Guard play will (hopefully!) improve in the coming weeks
  • Some reading before tip, in case you missed today's news: The Jakes on why USA Basketball might use Philly as a new home, and a report that Josh Harris and the gang may be looking to flip the franchise in advance of bringing the NFL to London.
  • Thaddeus Young will remain as one of my few fond memories of the post-Iverson mediocrity years. Still weird when the Sixers play against him, probably always will be.
  • In lieu of a traditional game preview, I re-wrote Nas' Ether and compiled a diss track directed at the Nets / NetsDaily. Due to human decency and the level of decor we try to preserve around these parts, it will be buried in the archives until our version of The Lost Tapes is released.
