Stakes aren’t too high in Philly this year for the Sixers. They’ve lost so much that shooting star Michael Carter Williams found new Bucks in Milwaukee to stop people from talking to him about tanking.
I mean even the lowly Los Angeles Lakers beat them last night.
Lets just say intentionally or not, this franchise will probably end up punching the winning lottery ticket for this Summers draft.
If they do then Adam Silver could call the name for their next star that could join their current top rookie that could well be a dynamic duo for the future and the next legacy line of their legendary history of doctors and answers.
Maybe there is a winning side to losing after all.
You see right now, everyone (especially us) are talking about Canadian rookie Andrew Wiggins of the Minnesota Timberwolves as your R.O.Y, but it looks like the dunking and blocking machine of the Philadelphia 76ers, Nerlens Noel is making his own Rookie Of The Year case. Fading Wiggins like his throwback hair.
You remember the Sixers and Suns joking about this Fresh Prince on Twitter. Well played indeed right? In West Philadelphia his game is being born and raised, as on the hardwood he’s spending most of his days. Dominating on both ends to emphatic stoppers and finishers.
Long and lanky but with more bolt than Manute Bol, this guy too is another fax machine away from his next road trip. Still in this digital age he’s a vine and hash tag favourite. Earning all praises due and respect even though his team is hiding in the leagues basement of shame.
Clawing away at the wood until its sneaker scratched this cat is showing us that legendary Kentucky alumni big men don’t end with the ‘brow of Pelican, MVP favourite Anthony Davis. This centre of Sixer attention is racking up rookie numbers not seen since the admiral and dream of David Robinson and Hakeem Olaujawon. Breaking good in all this bad this rookie is even being compared to Walter White.
“I am the one who blocks”! He now says.
With opportunity knocking a new answer for the 76 is about to heed the call. Ready to sit on the throne like the Prince of Philly.
