I haven't watched many games in my young Sixers fan career. But just after a few games, I've noticed one player that stands out to me. Spencer Hawes. Terrible as hell.

I'd rather have Brittney Griner play Center than Spencer Hawes.

Sixers self-inflicted pain

Doug Moe was probably the biggest slap in the face..guy completely stole from the 76ers when he was axed 56 games into the season but this Bynum situation is just par for the course. I mean the 76'ers have made lots of disastrous moves in their history like the Brad Daugherty and Moses Malone trades. The Barkley trade was pretty crappy too considering the returns for an MVP ...


Anyway..here is an article about the Doug Moe firing

Quote:
Moe has a guaranteed three-year contract that will pay him approximately $700,000 a year through the end of the 1994-95 season. In all probability, according to Moe, who had coached 14 NBA seasons before joining the Sixers, he will never coach again.

Moe is a believer in a little-used style of up-tempo basketball in which the players are given very few set plays to run and are expected to act and react based on their basketball instincts. The Sixers, with some players wildly unsuited to that style of play, never embraced his philosophy.

"We never practice," one veteran said after Saturday's loss to Seattle. ''We have no offense. We have no defense. We're not prepared to play. We're not playing very well, but it's a chicken-and-egg kind of thing. What comes first? (Moe) packed it in more than a month ago."

Moe, as is his wont, was open in his criticism of the Sixers. He felt that many players on the team were not capable of playing competitive basketball.

"Are they mad at me?" he said after the Seattle loss. "You think I care?"

http://articles.philly.com/1993-03-0...nt-fred-carter

This one is not so funny....


Quote:
Trading Brad Daugherty for Roy Hinson (Sixers)

The Sixers were coming off a 54-28 season, had veterans Moses Malone and Dr. J, a promising young star named Charles Barkley, and the No. 1 pick in the 1986 Draft. Hard to screw that up, right? Wrong. In perhaps the most disastrous 30 minutes of Draft Day history, the Sixers traded Daugherty (right) for Roy Hinson, then turned around and traded Moses Malone for Jeff Ruland. Ruland would play five games for the Sixers and Hinson would be traded after a disappointing year and a half. Daugherty, meanwhile, would become the Cavs best player ever until LeBron came along, and Moses would average a double-double for the next four years. Twenty-five years later, and some would say that the Sixers still haven't recovered. —Johnny Goodtimes (AP Photo/Charles Krupa/Karen Tam)

This team NEEDS a top five pick this year and next.

Keep Jrue obviously, and keep Thad, Turner, and Moultrie unless a good trade can be worked out and not completely burglarize the Sixers.

All the other players, the entire coaching staff and front office should be abandoned in Antarctica.

What an awful year for Hawes. I don't understand how he was somewhat decent in the playoffs?

Honestly, I miss Igoudala. Andre brought it every night.

As everyone else has said, I think the NBA Draft is the only way this team ever will reclaim its glory. Hopefully a team like OKC will be a comparable model.

As for Bynum, is it even worth it? I don't think so, but I'm not sure.

The sad part is there are 9 teams in the league with a worse record than the Sixers.

Meh, my moment for quitting the Sixers and the NBA in general was the whole Derrick Coleman fiasco. Pay him $5+ million to go away, then bring him back? WTF is wrong with you? The dude was terrible, you paid him money to just go because he was terrible, then you resign him because apparently you cannot run a basketball team. Sorry, after all the years of mismanagement and BS, that was the breaking point, I was done.

Then they end up hiring the guy who oversaw the Nets become a disaster, and I didn't feel the need to come back. The Sixers have been a consistently mismanaged team for most of the past 15-20 years, outside of when Larry Brown cared and got Allen Iverson to give a rat's ass.

If there was ever a game I've wanted this team to win in the last 10 years, it was against the Heat. I hate that smug POS team and wanted to end their stupid streak.

Coleman was another debacle and you framed the whole soap opera well. It's amazing this team is still operating...they have been so poorly mismanaged. They really need to write a book and cite all the idiotic things they have done since 83...

If it's not courtside, it's damn close. Perhaps behind the net. Lucky you.

My buddy's boss (from whom we got the tickets) said we should be on TV a good part of the night. I'll be the guy in the suit with the big beard.

If he's in the house, and if you're in range hit Bynum with a spitball right before you leave for me please. If it misses, and hits Nick Young, that'll work, too.

If he has one of his weirdo Afro's (comb down or puffed out) you certainly couldn't miss him. A spit ball though is too generous ..he needs some more solid projectiles thrown at him. He said he doesn't want to play with pain so might as well just add to the pain he's inflicted on the Sixers b/c his knees are pretty much shot...

Was about five feet from Bynum, but he wasn't there all night. I think just during the first quarter. I met Darryl Dawkins though. And I saw Paul Holmgren and Peter Laviolette at Xfinity Live before the game. Homer is way taller and skinnier than I thought he was.

Yeah, they had a chance to become something decent after the 2000 run to the Finals, then just blew it because Iverson's an ass and Brown can't keep from blowing things up eventually. Oh, and the team is cursed even more so then the Phillies with incompetent ownership/leadership. Which is saying something, considering the Phillies history.

I still remember them drafting Shawn Bradley and wondering how a 7'6" white guy who hadn't played in two years was going to make them better.

I remember how the Sixers said he was an "athlete" because he played pickup baseball or something and made contact with the ball and that he watered skiied as a pastime I mean for his height he wasn't a Manute Bol stiff or anything but he wasn't some Bo Jackson jock either like they tried to make fans all excited over.

The most hilarious Sixers story was how Harold Katz tried out/played against Sharone Wright in his driveway at his home and that is why he drafted him...awesome scouting method

The Harold Katz years were just one gaffe after another after the 83 championship. I still remember Barkley making fun of Charles Shackleford by stating that the Magic had the real Shaq while he had Shackleford.

To me this is 'whatever'. The season was a lost cause a few weeks back. They took a big swing and unfortunately missed.

What bothers me more right now is the team is suddenly playing well. They've won 3 of 4, with two of the wins against good teams. So they're back to fighting their way into the middle- not good enough to be relevant and not bad enough to get relevant. Spencer Hawes,poster boy of all the Sixers' ills, is playing like an all-star for a few games to ruin their chances of tanking before inevitably disappearing amidst a shroud of long 2's.
