Ed Stefanski (76ers GM),

I am a former 76ers season ticket holder. The 76ers recently gave me two tickets to see the 4-6 Sixers host the 3-7 Bobcats on Wednesday night. It was a good game.

The Sixers made a great comeback in the last couple minutes and won on a layup by Lou Williams with three seconds left.

Then on Friday night, I had already bought tickets, as I was planning on seeing Iverson make his only visit to Philadelphia of the season. But as we are all aware Iverson is not on the Grizzlies anymore.

The 5-6 Sixers lost to the 3-8 Grizzlies in a terrible performance that saw the Sixers get outrebounded 48-28. Only Lou Williams showed up.

This Sixer team is going to do the same thing as the last couple of years' teams: win enough games to make the playoffs and lose in the first round.

Allen Iverson was the heart and soul of the 76ers for a decade. The Sixers have been unable to escape mediocrity since trading Iverson.

The GM before you, you know, Billy King; there are a lot of reasons why he was fired. He traded for the washed up Webber. He re-signed Willie Green over John Salmons.
