After an embarrassing 35 point blowout loss in their MLK Day matinee with the Wizards, the 76ers have now lost two straight games. Still, they are 3-4 in their last seven contests, which given the current roster is a respectable stretch of play. They are now halfway through (8-33) their 2nd season of…call it tanking or rebuilding, whichever you prefer…and trying to measure success or failure at this point has become a difficult task.
What we are watching both on and off-the-court is something, but what is it? The reason it’s happening is understandable.

So at the halfway point of the second season under Hinkie’s master plan, Philadunkia scribes C. Smith and Steve Toll will look at six tough questions Sixers fans could be asking in the near future.
