There’s Nothing Left To SayPosted: March 1, 2012
What is there to say? If you have seen the game vs the Thunder on Feb. 29th know where I’m going. There’s nothing left to say about this team. I have talked about their clutch problems. I’ve talked about how they need to get to the line. I have talked about what they need. This goes back to last year.
The issues have been run through the hole at multiple sites. And at this point, I feel like I can say all that I can. Sixers fans know the problems. You don’t need me to talk about them over and over again. Just read a previous post and you’ll get the same result. The Sixers are like a scientific theory in the clutch. And they are turning into a law. How? Well, just like there is a law of gravity. You know that no matter what happens, the end result is the same: You throw something in the air, it falls. Or if you drop something, it falls on the ground. And it’s almost to the point that the Sixers’ failures in the clutch are becoming law.
At this point, I expect them to lose close games. At this date, Sixers are only 2-10 in games decided by 7 games or less. Last year, they were even worse in only 5 points or less. And I have come to the point where I see this coming. Does this mean I want it to happen? No. But, just like the law of gravity happens no matter what you do or how you feel, Sixers seem to just have to lose close games.
It’s all probably an exaggeration. But, what else can explain this? I mean, I love this team. And I am always supporting them. I write about them. This is what I’m all about. But, there is a limit to what you can take. That game vs the Thunder was one of the worse endings I have ever seen in my life. Unreal. You would think that this team learned something from all of the foolishness in close games. It’s the same team from last year. And they still can’t get it together? What a joke. The Thunder gave the game to the Sixers. Gave it to them. And they still couldn’t win. Amazing. The gift of losing. They have it. No doubt about it.
I’ve ranted enough. I will continue to watch the games as if it is scientific law. Meaning, I now expect a loss in close games. I expect them to lose the rebounding battle. I expect long 2′s and 3′s. I don’t want to see it. I hate it. But, it is what it is. I will cheer them on but my expectations are now different. This is it for me. You won’t be hearing a lot about all of the foolishness of this team. When something good happens, I’ll mention it of course. But in terms of trying to figure the team’s issues, I quit.
There’s nothing left to say.
