The Ramblings of a Frustrated 76ers Fan - 12/4/2014 Free NBA Analysis

Well the Philadelphia 76ers avoided the worst start in NBA History by picking up a road win against the Timberwolves last night.

The Wolves of course were without their top three players, but this is still a big accomplishment for the lowly 76ers!

I would not expect them to win more than 10 games this year. 

Being from Philadelphia I have season tickets to both the 76ers and Villanova basketball. Feel free to drop me a note if you would like to buy some 76ers tickets. (I think they are going for about $7 on stubhub) Villanova plays 5 games this season on the 76ers court. I tried to find odds in Vegas that Villanova would win more games at the Wells Fargo Center this season then the 76ers would, unfortunately that prop bet does not exist (although I think it should....so all you bookmakers that read this blog get on that one please) Since I couldn't find odds that Villanova would win more games at the Wells Fargo Center (no Wells Fargo does not pay me to name the stadium in my articles) I ended up betting a long time friend a night of beers at the bar that Villanova would win more games. he took the bet, I am looking forward to my beers and more 76ers road wins!

Seriously, this has to be the worst strategy in NBA history. Yes they have been more competitive over the past few weeks, but overall its brutal to watch and you know what the outcome will be each night. Hopefully the few talented players the 76ers have stick around and we get a few free agents this offseason (hell it shouldn't be hard, the 76ers are about $20 million under the salary cap floor....so at the end of the season JaKarr Sampson will get a big bonus check from the 76ers to bring them up to the floor of the salary cap)

Looking forward to the 76ers being competitive for the 2018 season, if the players or owners don't opt of the collective bargaining agreement before the season starts!

As for this season I will be rooting for a few more road wins...and anyone that thinks Kentucky would be 17 point underdogs to the 76ers is crazy....I would take the 17 all day
