That quote from Shawshank Redemption holds true for 76er fans, now more than ever. Hope is all that is left, I guess.
Seriously, sit back and think about the Philadelphia 76ers for a moment. Not much, right? Maybe Sam Hinkie pulls a rabbit out of his hat, a bunch of other things go right and certain guys elevate their game in 2013-14. Still, how much will that help?
$12,000,000 in cap space is just enough to do something stupid, but not enough to pull off a miracle. Between Turner, J-Rich and Kwame; the 76ers have more than 25% of their roster as dead weight. Even getting players at their true value won’t be enough to do anything but keep the team in an awkward spot.
Our man Bynum looks ready to screw the franchise for the next 5 years by being Shawshank quote incarnate. If not Bynum, it will be some other player. Let’s just hope that Hinkie’s advanced analytics inform him that he should avoid the players I am write about after the jump.
