Pregame: Sixers vs Lakers

The battle for the leading tank continues tonight vs the Lakers.

This is probably the worst Sixers-Lakers game in the history of Sixers-Lakers games. There is no Kobe, NO SWAGGY P, no anyone. Both teams are horrible and seem content with being horrible.

For anyone that cares, tonight is Steve Nash’s 80th birthday. Expect him to go for a triple-double and completely dismantle the Sixers. But that’s exactly what we want, so it’s okay.

The Lakers will be going for two-in-a-row tonight, after somehow beating Cleveland after dressing eight players, losing two to injury and then two more fouled out. NBA rules permitted Robert Sacre to remain on the floor after fouling out, so the Lakers could keep five players on the floor.

OH YEAH. There will be something very crucial missing from this game, which will probably make no one want to watch.


If you needed another incentive to not watch this game on a Friday night, there it is. Nick Young could miss considerable time after a knee injury, which just makes me sad.

Back to the whole tanking thing.

Per tankathon.com, the Sixers currently have a 46.9 percent chance at a top-three pick and a 15.6 percent chance at the number-one pick. The Sixers are 15-35 on the season, on a four game losing steak and 2-8 in their last 10 games. Everything is just okay.

Yup. Not much left to say here.
