To say the the 76ers have struggled mightily to remain competitive over the last two weeks is an understatement. Over the last 10 games, the roster and head coach which Sam Hinkie assembled for this season have redefined the concept of tanking in professional sports. This past week, the season of the tank hit rock bottom as the Sixers became the second team in NBA history to lose by 40-plus points in consecutive games and their losing streak reached a season worst 8 games.
In addition to horrific defense and MCW’s shooting slump, a great deal of the blame for the steep nose dive the Sixers have taken over the last two weeks has been placed in front of Evan Turner’s locker. While there’s no doubt that Turner has played very poorly during the Sixers most recent stretch of pathetic basketball, I am here to tell you that he’s not the only veteran on this roster who deserves blame.
