List of Things That Happened During 76ers Losing Streak


The streak is over! Yes, that’s true. But, lets reminisce for a second. Let’s take a quick look at things that happened while the Sixers were losing 26 straight (via Philly.com):

-     The Seahawks won the Super Bowl

-     The Winter Olympics occurred in their entirety

-     Groundhog’s Day

-     The Winter X-Games occurred in their entirety

-     Valentine’s Day

-     President’s Day

-     The entire month of February

-     Evan Turner (who hit the game-winning shot the last time the Sixers won) was traded

-     Dale Earnhardt Jr. won Daytona

-     LeBron James broke his nose, missed time, came back with a mask, then stopped wearing mask

-     Allen Iverson’s number was retired at the Wells Fargo Center

-     Mardi Gras

-     The Florida Gators won 17 straight games

-     Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared

-     St. Patrick’s Day

-     March Equinox

-     Kevin Durant scored 25+ points in 25 straight games (and counting) for the Thunder

-     Michael Vick signed with the New York Jets

-     The Spurs won 14 straight games (and counting)

-     The Pacers, Heat and Spurs clinched playoff berths

-     DeSean Jackson was released by the Eagles

Wow, that’s a lot. Well, at least it’s over now. A part of me wished the Sixers would have lost this game, but that was literally impossible. The Pistons were playing the most obvious brand of “I don’t give a damn” basketball. Even the Sixers, on their worst night, which is almost every night, would still have had a chance to win this game.
Back to the losing, please?
