Nets still in the running to be the worst

Posted by under *mixed, Sports |

What has been a depressing NBA season is winding down, and tonight at 7PM the Sixers face the New Jersey Nets for the final time.  I just received an e-mail from the Sixers (yes, I’m still willing to be on their mailing list. I also get a text after every game which normally begins “Sixers fall to…”) with the message “SIXERS LOOK TO NUDGE NJ TOWARDS INFAMY” as the lowly Nets could still finish with fewer wins than the 1972-73 Sixers and their 9-73 record.

Regardless of the outcome tonight, I just don’t think the Nets will set the record. They’ve been on fire since the All-Star break with 3 wins in 15 games, and with 15 left to play I don’t see how they only come away with one victory. Especially considering they’re facing teams with 23-44 records like the Sixers, and only five of the remaining teams they face have winning records.

On the season, the Nets are on pace to win 8.5 with a current overall record of 7-60. So mathematically it could still happen. I’ll keep my fingers crossed. If nothing else, the Nets’ run at infamy has given me something to follow during a miserable Sixers season.

    I thought for sure the Nets would win tonight. EVERYBODY beats the Sixers. Thank god it’s baseball season.

    Plenty of other teams have beaten them this season, but I believe they swept the Nets for the year. This is the first year I haven’t been to a game since 2001.

    Have you downloaded At Bat 2010 for your phone yet?

    Hell yeah I have. But actually, it only really started working correctly on like Monday. Before that it would make this horrible static noise randomly and lose the signal every few minutes. Now it works great.
