Philadelphia 76ers are the worst NBA side in 25 years

Published Add your comment

The Philadelphia 76ers are terrible. This is news to nobody.

What is news, and quite frankly a shocking statistic is that the Sixers are the worst NBA side in 25 years.

Philly have gone on a massive fifteen game losing streak, twelve of which have been lost by double digit margins.

The last team to be this bad? The 1989 Los Angeles Clippers.

According to ESPN, Philadelphia’s 0-11 February was the 3rd worst month any team in NBA history has had. Point differential? A robust -19.1. Nobody’s been that bad since the 1989 Clippers went 0-14 in January with a -19.8 point differential.

Now the franchise's sights will be firmly set on a different record, the longest ever losing streak. The title is currently held by the Cleveland Cavaliers who went an astounding 26 games without a win in their first season without a certain Lebron James.

Will the 76ers even win again this season? At the moment you really cannot see where the next 'W' is going to come from. 

There are 21 games left in the regular season for 2014 and it could be a real possibility.

Unfortunately for the Sixers however, their schedule isn't looking any easier. After Saturday's home tie against the Utah Jazz they face up against the Knicks, Kings, Pacers, Grizzlies and Bulls.

If you betted on Philly getting over the spread at 16.5 wins a season then let's hope it doesn't come down to the last game of the season, a small matter of travelling to Miami.
