Anyone who follows the NBA knows where the Philedelphia 76ers stand. They are currently 0-12, and currently have a 22 game losing streak dating back to last season.

They are 7 games away from having the worst start in NBA history, currently being held by the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets who had a 0-18 start.

They are 5 games away from having the longest losing streak in sports. Right now, three teams hold the record at 26 games: the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers, the 2013-14 Philedelphia 76ers, and the 1976/1977 Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

So, why are the 76ers so bad? Do you think they will start the season 0-19? Do you think they'll get to 27 straight losses? When do you think they will win their first game?

Discuss.

They should call themselves the 69ers, because all they do is suck.

Hahaha I love it man! Funniest post I've seen all day.

To answer the question, it's because they trade all their talent away in hopes of getting the top overall pick in the draft. They've done this for what....3 years now? And it's gotten them nowhere

It's just that, they suck they might as well tank the rest of the season so they can get the 1st pick in the draft.

The GM is doing this on purpose, TANKING is their philosophy. The plan is to keep getting top picks by losing for a certain amount of time and then become a contender down the road......it won't work.. .

IMO, it isn't going to work for a few reasons

1.The players are being conditioned to lose and will need a long time to have a winning mentality. You cant have your guys lose for 5 years and then hit the win switch

2.The team is very young and they don't have proper mentors to help them develop. Everyone needs someone to show them how its done, they aren't.

3. The team trades so many players and won't be trusted by them. The first chance one of these future star players(example Kahlil Okafor) has to leave, they will.

4.No free agent worth anything will sign for a perennial loser with a weak game plan.

Another few years of tanking and the team will maybe have enough early first round draft picks to be a contender some day? That's their only salvation at this point in time.
