Hawes said, “It is just going to be good to get it over with. With all the expectations we had coming in and then the way the season has gone it will be nice to take the positives going forward and flush the rest of it. It was a tough year on everybody; us; the fans, anyone involved with the organization.”
Here at Philadunkia, we couldn’t agree more with Spence’s words and after the jump I compiled a list of items from the 2012-13 season that I am happy to see coming to an end.
Tonight will be the last time I ever have to see that weary and exhausted look on DC’s face as he throws himself back in his chair in disgust and mumbles something to assistant coach Brian James.
Tonight will be the last time that I ever have to see Kwame Brown in a fancy suit on the Sixers bench (I assume the Sixers will cut him/buy him out or he retires this summer).
Tonight will be that last time I ever have to worry about Nick Young entering the game and chucking up ill advised 3PAs.
Tonight will be the last time that I ever have to watch a Sixers offense that lives and dies by the long 2-ball and is allergic to taking the ball to the rim.
Tonight will be the last time I ever have to watch insert NBA journeyman guard’s name here (Currently Royal Ivey/Charles Jenkins/Justin Holiday) check into the game as the Sixers back-up point guard.
Tonight will be the last time I ever have to wonder why DC hates rookies so much and refuses to play Nik Vucevic or Arnett Moultrie (even at the end of a lost season).
Tonight will be the last time I ever wonder how a game would have gone “If Andrew Bynum was healthy.”
Tonight could be the last time I see Evan Turner in a Sixers uniform. I am not sure who would be stupid enough to take him off our hands via a trade, but it could happen. Right? At minimum, after tonight it will be several months before I have to watch “The Enigma” dribble the air out of the ball before forcing up a 9-footer — miss — and then whine feverishly to the refs that he was fouled.
Tonight is the end of the 2012-13 season my friend and for the reasons above, I couldn’t be happier.
