All Aboard! Grantland Piece Marks Official Departure of the Sixers Bandwagon

All tickets, all passes. This is the Sixers bandwagon leaving the station. The Sixers won again last night and Philly fans aren’t the only ones noticing that 20-9 looks pretty good at this point in a shortened NBA season. Today, Ben Detrick—of the Bill Simmons/ESPN grand experiment Grantland.com—heralds the Sixers as the poster children for the NBA’s middle class teams. Also, Elton Brand is an “albatross” and Lavoy Allen “brings the ruckus.”  [Grantland]
