Sixers-Heat Game Preview: Why are you reading this?

New, comments

I don't know.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The Sixers play a basketball game tonight. It is against a team that already beat them just two nights ago: the Miami Heat. A number of key players have been ruled out, including Nerlens Noel, Jahlil Okafor, Nik Stauskas, and Kendall Marshall. So why are you going to watch this game? And better yet why are you reading a preview for this irrelevant game?

This season is really taking a toll on even the most dedicated supporters of The Process. Just check out this conversation I had with Liberty Ballers co-blog lord Jake Pavorsky earlier today.

It's hard to blame Jake (or anyone) for feeling so disinterested at this point. The Sixers aren't very interesting right now. They're just bad. They've virtually got the worst record locked up, so it's hard to even "enjoy" losses. The biggest thing to look forward to right now is simply the end of the season. Good news on that front: only 19 games left after tonight!

So, yeah. This is where this half-assed preview ends. I still don't know why you even bothered to read it.
