Sixers 2014-15 Schedule Analysis

Posted by: C. Smith

76ersaltlogoMuch to our excitement, the 76ers schedule for 2014-15 schedule was released yesterday.  And while the 76ers roster is still not complete and Thad Young may or may not be here next month, we took a stab at analyzing the upcoming 82-game slate.

Since most NBA rosters are not yet finalized, we had to make a lot of assumptions based on what the teams looked like last year and the pieces they have subtracted and/or added this off-season.  So we reserve the right to make some changes after the free agent season comes to a final halt.  But I doubt we will be making many changes as the Sixers are going to be terrible during the upcoming season of the “Double Tank”.

With those assumptions in mind we believe “In Hinkie We Believe” fans will be very pleased to learn that a brutal November in 2014-15 will be followed by a simply awful start to January, so the Sixers could be well on their way to an unprecedented double-tank effort well before All-Star Weekend.

After the jump, is a breakdown of what is sure to be a very long season for us here in Philadunkia nation.
