They Sixers had a chance a in game 1 but couldn’t pull of the comeback in the fourth quarter, don’t forget they were up by 18 at one point in the 2nd quarter. In game 2 they never hand a chance, they were simply outclassed the whole 48 minutes of play. Before the playoffs started, I predicted the Heat would win the series in five games, but now I’m thinking the Sixers get might get swept if they don’t win tonight.
I know the Lebron hate will be in the building, the Philly fans will come out to support and be make a the environment unfriendly for the Heat. But will that be enough for th Sixers to pull out a win? I would feel much better if Elton Brand(10 ppg and 7 rpg) and Spencer Hawes(3 ppg and 0.5 rpg) weren’t making Chris Bosh(23 ppg and 11.5 rpg) look like Karl Malone in his prime. Charles Barkley has a saying that if your are 6′9 and play power forward and can’t grab ten rebounds is a small forward, well for Spencer Hawes to average less then a rebound a game means he shouldn’t have a job.
The teams “Stefanski’s Anointed” franchise player Andre Iguodala is earning his check right? How does 4.5 ppg, 7.5 rpg, and 8.0 apg grab you? I know Iguodala has become the city’s punching bag when it comes to Sixers basketball, but in my eyes he’s the most overpaid employee in the state of Pennsylvania. When you can’t depend on your highest paid player to make buckets in playoff games, there is a problem. Lou Williams(9 ppg and 5 apg), was a dependable scorer for the Sixers off the bench but doesn’t look like himself due to the hamstring injury suffered in the last week of the season.
Look if they win a game or not it won’t make a difference to me either way. This team isn’t good enough to make it out of the first round as it’s constructed and it’s two highest paid players are damn near unmovable. The Sixers had a chance to move Iguodala last season to Houston for Tracy McGrady’s expiring 20 million dollar contract and guard/forward Chase Budinger, but that idiot Ed Stefanski wanted no parts of the trade. Not shipping Iggy’s ass out of here compiled with hiring that bonehead Eddie Jordan as coach last season, has set this franchise back another 2-4 years. Philly fans come out and #Showyalove because the season ends this weekend.
