The right thing said by the wrong person.

After last nights sorry excuse for a basketball game, the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Boston Celtics 101-85. The 76ers had the lead pretty much all through out the first half. Then, just like what we have seen in recent games, they blew the lead. With this team it’s like clock work. They don’t have the guy to go to when shit needs to get done. They have their 4 scorers who on any given night could drop 20 but God knows who it will be before tip-off. Anyways, let’s get down to business.

After last night’s game reports came out saying that Elton Brand, yes Old Man Brand, As he walked to his post game interview, Elton Brand told the Celtics ball boys in the hallway outside the locker rooms ”See you on Saturday.” I love this. I love everything about this. Everything except the fact it was said by Elton Brand. If Evan Turner or Iggy said this I would be hype. The fact that Elton Brand said it makes me shake my head. He finally shows up for a game and decides it’s an appropriate time to say this? I want that swag in my young guns, not my 33-year-old 13 year vet. I like that he’s fired up and I hope that we do see them Saturday. I’m glad someone said something and is fired up. I’m just bitter it was Brand who said it rather than Turner, the guy I want to be vocal and smack talking. Maybe im out of line and should just be happy any Sixer said something. I just want to see and hear more out of our young players, our future, not the guy we cant wait to get rid of to free up cap space.

Andre Iguodala went balls deep in Chicago.

The Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Chicago Bulls tonight 79-78. Really what I mean to say is Andre Iguodala defeated the Chicago Bulls tonight. Right now Iguodala and his ugly ass tattoos became a man tonight. He hit clutch shots when we needed him. He made free throws which he can never do. With Iggy being the only offense all night he got the ball with 7 seconds remaining down by 1. With Andre gripping the ball and driving to the hole he drew the foul. Picture this, Down 1 with 2 seconds left in the 4th quarter of a series deciding game. That’s the kind of shit you do in your driveway as a kid and pretend to be the hero. Andre was the Hero drilling both foul shots which gave the 76ers the lead and the win. Andre Iguodala grew a set today. He became a man.

NOTE: I’m still high off this victory, expect more hate comments on Andre once he thinks he can do everything himself for the next round. Expect the 0-5 on 3 point attempts and 2-9 on free throw attempts. Just enjoy tonight while you can Philly. Soak it up, bask it in. Philly advances.

So your tellin me there’s a chance: 76er’s addition.

After yesterday’s 109-92 Philadelphia 76ers victory over the Chicago bulls I started thinking. Then I got a stiffy. Is it at all possible, that the team that I thought could maybe win 1 game this series win it? I’m starting to believe it is.

Obviously, I wouldn’t even think twice about posting this if Rose was still around. Now with the unfortunate injury which put the reigning MVP out for the remainder of the year I think that Philly could pull this off. The Sixers have played a total of 5 games against the Bulls this year counting the Playoffs. In those 5 games the Bulls lead that series 3-2. With the Playoff series now tied at 1-1 and the next 2 games in Philadelphia I wouldn’t be shocked to see the series tied at 2-2, which is fantastic. The Chicago Bulls are still a very good team without Rose, but they are beatable, the Sixers have proven this already.

The Sixers have to play great basketball, much like we saw in game 2. The Sixers are at their best when they are rebounding the ball and Jrue Holliday and Evan Turner run the offense as smoothly as they did. For the first time it seemed they complimented each other. As for Andre Iguodala (who has a basketball tattoo that looks like a 5-year-old scribbled on) don’t be a bitch, know your god damn roll and dominate on the defensive side and score on your break aways like you can. If the Sixers can play like they did in game 2, forgetaboutit.

So all I’m saying is this, It’s an exciting time in Philadelphia sports and the Sixers have the ability to make a lot of noise. It is very possible to win this round and if they advance they would play the winners of the Atlanta Hawks Boston Celtics series, also two teams I feel that we can contend with and take a series from. Obviously that series would be our NBA finals. After that it’s time for El Heat. Let’s not get carried away here.

This Bulls series is now all of a sudden something to be excited for. A week ago I wrote the Sixers off; today I’m telling you we have a shot at something here, a small something. So be excited! Your mediocre Philadelphia 76ers have a shot to win a series and make some noise in the NBA Playoffs. Who knows, maybe Lebron will bump heads with Wade and Bosh all at once. You Never Know YNK in sports, thats what makes them fucking fantastic.

76er’s, They’ll blow it in the playoffs.

After defeating the Net’s 105-87 the Philadelphia 76er’s make it to the playoffs for the second year in a row. Now that they ruined any shot, which of course was a long shot, at getting Anthony Davis in the lottery they will go on a lose in the first round of the playoffs. There are only 2 reasons to even watch the 76er’s now.

1. Molly Sullivan. The new sideline reporter for the 76er’s who is “temporarily replacing” Meredith Marakovits. When Meredith left I thought there was no way to replace her… Thank you Molly. I look forward to seeing you at the 76ers last two regular season games followed by 4 playoff games.

2. #Shitmaliksays. Many times this year the 76er’s were unbearable to watch. Watching Andre Iguodala try to make a jump shot is like watching my 5-year-old niece try to put her square-shaped toy into the circle hole. Thank God for Malik Rose. At least while watching you know you’re going to get some humor out of it. Malik is good for at least a laugh a quarter.

 I would say that 40% of the reason I still watch the Sixers is because of Malik, 40% is the sideline reporters and 20% is the Sixers blue balled the shit out of me to start the season. As I hope for the best going into the 2012 NBA Playoffs, I’m expecting the worst. Assuming we play the Heat in the opening round, let’s just hope they use some lube on us this time otherwise it’s going to be painful.
