    That was an interesting game. This is one of the few times where I don't mind the Sixers winning. I don't know about you Clipse, but I thought the foul calling was inconsistent for most of the game.

    Oh, MCW is a stud.

    Holy **** what a game. Triple doubles by MCW and Oladipo. Hollis Thompson looking like a solid rookie for us too.

    MCW out with a "skin infection." This team gives no ****s. Throw out anything for the tank.

    Congrats to Kyle Korver setting the NBA record with a three pointer made in 90 consecutive games. Seems like forever since Ashton Kutcher was raining threes down in Philly.

    And the tank rolls on with a loss to Denver. The next 2 games against the Clippers and T'Wolves shape up as losses as well.

    Even if there is the slightest thing wrong with MCW, I have no problem sitting him for a few games. No need to rush him back.

    Precautionary according to Brown. I just find it amusing all the descriptions we've used to keep our best players from playing. Next up, Evan Turner missing a week due to "bullying."

    I know it's only a rumor, but there is no good reason for the Sixers to do this in my mind.

    I don't like the trade either. Noel should give us everything and more than what Asik can offer at a much less price.

    And a move like that would go against everything the front office is trying to do this year. Asik would make the team better, which is not what this season is about.

    Worst defense in the history of sports? I think so. Keep it up Sixers. Amazing the impact MCW has on the team. Entire team especially offense just looks much worse without him.

    The Sixers are borderline unwatchable without MCW.

    This will probably end up being the worst defense in the history of the NBA.

    I have to admit, this is alarming to me, and not a good thing. Thad Young has been one of the classiest, hardest working team oriented players in the league since the day he stepped in Philadelphia. I have nothing but respect for the man. Being upset and requesting a trade is a pretty severe step for Young to take. Hopefully it's just a case of Young wanting to be given a bigger role on a team instead of something serious going on in the locker room. That being said, I wouldn't hate to see him traded for the right price. Love the guy as a 6th man, not a fan as a starter. Wherever he goes, I wish him nothing but the best. He deserves to go to a team competing for a championship and would make a great 6th man for any of the top teams in the league.

    My thoughts exactly. I was hoping he would still be around for the rebuild, but that doesn't appear to be the case. It's basically about Young's desire to play for a contending team, which in all honesty, never happened in Philly. Yeah, the team made the playoffs a few times, but they weren't really going anywhere. I'm sure a lot of teams around the league would love to have a guy like him coming off their bench.

    Turner with the first overtime game winner since Iverson. This game just shows you the impact MCW has already as a rookie. Offense is infinitely better with him playing

    time to sit MCW with an "injury." Comes back and we start winning games again.

    I saw a stat that with MCW they are 10-11. Without him, they are 1-10. As the year progresses, he may be sitting with "injuries".

    4 in a row now. Thad Young looking like the league MVP since those trade rumors. Turner looking like a beast again after a slump. Not good. MCW may have suffered a concussion tonight though.

    As the team is constructed now, they have too much talent to have the worst or second worst record in the league. They have the talent to get the 5th or 6th worst record in the league.

    It looked like Thad got MCW with that elbow. If it is indeed a concussion, don't be surprised if he misses a few games. And if he misses a few games, good chance those will be losses.

    I would be very surprised if he played in a game this season. There would be no good reason for him to risk injury in a season where the goal is to lose as many games as possible.

    When I watch this team, it always amazes me that this team can win a couple games in a row against decent teams, then get blown out in three straight.

    Even though the Sixers aren't going to win many games, this is one I can live with them winning.

    In all the time I've ever watched the Sixers, that was probably the worst game I've ever seen them play. That was brutal.

    After watching the last couple games, I've come to this conclusion. If the Sixers trade even one out of Turner or Young, they won't win another game the rest of the year. The team has been brutal the last couple nights.

    In addition to many other moves, the Sixers traded Turner and Lavoy Allen to the Pacers for Danny Granger. Not sure what I think about that yet.
