The Philadelphia 76ers are one of the worst professional sports teams we've seen in quite some time. The Sixers haven't won a game since January 29, and they just tied the NBA record for most consecutive losses with 26 in a row. There's a strong chance that Philadelphia finishes the season on a 36-game losing streak. Think about that for a moment.
As Sean Highkin of USA Today breaks down, the Sixers have taken center stage for all the wrong reasons:
The Sixers have become a lightning rod for the tanking debate, the most blatant example of a purposely bad team since the 1996-97 Boston Celtics attempted to land Tim Duncan in the draft. There is no neutral opinion on the 2013-14 76ers. They’re either a shining example of a smart rebuild or the worst thing ever to happen to basketball, with no in-between.
A team this bad requires some introduction, don't you think? We know about rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams, who is having a nice season, somehow, despite his surroundings. We also know about poor Thaddeus Young, a really talented hustle player whose best efforts go to waste on a nightly basis.
But as for the rest of the roster? It's like you turn into Butch Cassidy whenever you watch the Sixers—you just say, "Who are those guys?" for two straight hours.
Well, I'm here to help. Without further ado, here are the rest of the 2013-14 Philadelphia 76ers.
