LAS VEGAS -- It's no secret things figure to be bad this season for a Philadelphia 76ers team doing little more than masquerading as an NBA franchise.
Leave it to the oddsmakers in this gambling city to show just how bad things could be for a team contending for nothing but the NBA's next top draft pick.
As the regular season tips off, the over-under for 76ers victories is 16.5, the lowest of any team and the lowest total LVH sports book oddsmaker Jeff Sherman can remember putting up on any NBA team in the past decade or so.
That means optimistic Philly fans (assuming there are any for a team with only a handful of legitimate NBA players) can win if they bet their team will win 17 times during the 82-game season. Conversely, those who think the 76ers are even worse than they seem can cash in if the win total is 16 or fewer.
"They've pretty much made it known in Philadelphia they're trying to get the No. 1 pick for Andrew Wiggins and not holding back," Sherman said. "Teams try for the draft pick sometimes late in the season, but they're basically doing it the whole season."
It gets even better for true believers. They can get odds of 9,999-1 if they want to wager at the LVH on the 76ers winning the title.
"It was the highest number our computers would let us put in," Sherman said.

Jokes aside,and perhaps he did'nt "PRACTICE" but Allen Iverson had more heart than most NBA players ever will.I had the privelege(sp) of watching him his entire career and can say that he was the best Sixer I ever saw play live.I missed seeing the greats from the 70's and 80's. I can and do appreciate Allen Iverson and appreciate all that he did accomplish in a Sixers uniform.
What the hell are the Sixers doing beating the Heat...crazy!
Anyway....trust me this team will win a championship before any of the other major philly teams. However, they absolutely have to tank and get one of the top 5 picks at the minimum. This winning crap has to stop....
