The 76ers are not messing around right now. They are going full throttle, Daniel Day-Lewis method acting level of sucking at basketball, and admirably making sure they will not win a game this season. Thaddeus Young and Evan Turner have to be worth some high draft picks and expiring contracts right? A cursory glance at the 76ers bench hits me like Wolverine’s claws on the chalkboard (or his claws on my brain). Will lottery pick Michael Carter Williams start immediately? Will Nerlens Noel and his cool hair return by Christmas? Philly’s bench is a murderers row of C-minus talent, plus Royce White, who has yet to demonstrate he is ready for the rigors of a airplane heavy schedule. On the bright side, Kwame Brown is not as bad as you instinctively believe he is. He’s only slightly less bad than that, but hey, take what you can get. I’ll be sure monitor the situation to see if Arnett Moultrie maintains his current PER (16.5) for the duration of the season. A few injuries to the starters and this ghastly bench unit is going to log a lot of brutal minutes playing punching bag to just about any other ghastly bench unit. Philadelphia’s bench gave them next to nothing last year and they may outdo themselves with the nothing giving this season if everything goes according to (Riggin’ for Wiggins) plan. And no, I don’t think Tony Wroten is the answer. Though I would like Nas to record a tribute album for him called “It was Wroten”.
