Despite a respectable three quarters of play by a rag-tag roster against Orlando the other night, the 2013-14 76ers have become unwatchable on the court. So with 24 games remaining in this season for the Sixers, it’s time to REALLY start watching the race between the Milwaukee Bucks and the 76ers for the most pingpong balls at the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery.
The 76ers (15-43) sit 3.5 games behind Milwaukee (11-46; 25 games remaining) in this season’s tanking quest. However, thanks to the recent stellar play of Brandon Knight, the Bucks are 2-3 since the Alll-Star Game (1-1 after the trade deadline) and lost in respectable fashion to the mighty Pacers last night.
Obviously the Sixers have some work to do if they are to track down the Bucks and secure the 2014 NBA Draft Lottery pingpong ball crown. However there is an outside chance they can do it.
After the jump, I breakdown the details of this Buck hunting adventure.
