In case you were wondering, yes, that is the title of a book about the 1984-85 Indiana basketball team coached by Bob Knight who made it to the NCAA national championship only to lose 65-62 to UCLA. It is also the perfect title to describe the Sixers current situation this season. Right now this Sixers team (10-25) is on the brink of total collapse, and it’s never been more evident then in last night’s loss at the hands of the Toronto Raptors.
Before the game even started we heard that Elton Brand was sick, and General Manager Ed Stefanski addressed the media saying that everybody was responsible for the Sixers lack of success this season. Eddie Jordan, assistant coaches, players, and even himself. Stefanski told a group of reporters, “We’re not getting the job done and we’re going to have to get it done.” If you read between the lines this statement basically means this, “Eddie, you have three games to show me that you can win or else you’re out.”
