Philadelphia 76ers management has tanked on the fans

Thank goodness that’s over. After defeating the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves, last night, the Philadelphia 76ers are now riding their longest winning streak of the season.

Could Kentucky beat the 76ers?

Want to hear a fun stat? The Jacksonville Jaguars are currently scoring, on average, 14.6 points per game. The Philadelphia 76ers, the winless Philadelphia 76ers, are losing by an average of 16.5 points. That’s right; an NBA team exists that loses by more points than an NFL team even scores.
