The Sad State of the Philadelphia 76ers

Two weekends ago was the All-Star basketball game and the trade deadline has past. We all know each and every All-Star game is a complete joke, but basketball really draws a crowd. It is an event.

How crazy is it that the only representative of the Sixers was Allen Iverson? That is how freaking bad this team is. Not that they are terrible, terrible; they are just PAINFUL to watch.

They don’t have one marketable player on the roster. 

This has led the Waltdog to not watch one second of the All-Star Game. I think the NBA is a bad product right now (not only because the Sixers stink).

I think the revenue stream would agree with me. David Stern was quoted as saying the NBA was set to lose $400 million dollars this year, and have lost at least $200 million dollars a year under the current collective bargaining agreement.

Even though the NBA has possibly the best talent of all time, there is an aura of blahness to the game.

I wrote an article awhile back about changes the NBA could make, and avid NBA fans blasted it, replying the NBA was a good product. The financial state of the NBA begs to differ.
