Surfing the net earlier today, I came across an actual ESPN story that featured the 76ers. The reason being that Philadelphia happened to be one of the most “overlooked” teams in the NBA, and that they were listed in the top 10 NBA power teams in the league. I have no idea what that means. I was just excited to see some national coverage for Philadelphia that wasn’t Michael Vick being the catalyst for a New York meltdown.
How does a team like the 76ers respond? They lose. Badly. 45 points to be exact. The 76ers started the 8 game road trip by beating the Orlando Magic. That happened to be when the Magic were totally revamping the team, and only had 3 bench players. Tonight the Sixers played the Chicago Bulls minus Joakim Noah. The final score ended up being 121-76. Good lord.
The Sixers visit Boston and the Nuggets next. Power rankings gooooooo!!!
