Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams have quite a basketball history together that goes all the way back to high school. It has been a nostalgic kind of month, don’t you think folks. Well Noel and CarterW-Williams get to write another chapter this season in Philly, and we will have to see how long this chapter goes for. Something tells me it is no an era that is going to include a lot of losing. Grantland is doing some awesome previews for every pro team and the Sixers I believe were the first team they preview, because they are going worst to first.
Also quick shoutout to Alex Kennedy whose writing on basketball I always enjoy, and for the tweet below.

Jalen Rose and Bill Simmons picked the Sixers to have the worst record in the league, but also to not be the historically worst team of all time. So Sixers fans have that going for them I guess.
Here is something to cheer you up though Philly, Noel loved the show Fresh Prince of Bel Air and it is actually the show that inspired his flat top hair cut. Also Will Smith (former of Fresh Prince) recently bought a minority stake in the 76ers. So you can bet that the Prince will be at a lot of the losses this year. Especially the ones administered by LeBron James and company.
