The 76ers Are Historically Bad

Tie NBA record for most consecutive losses, at 26.

Maybe we should call them the 26ers, instead.

Sporting News reports: “Philly tied an NBA record Thursday night with its 26th consecutive loss, a 120-98 blowout defeat against the Rockets in Houston. Philadelphia (15-57) joins the 2010-11 (post-LeBron Decision) Cleveland Cavaliers with 26 in a row. The Sixers can set the mark Saturday at home against the Detroit Pistons (26-45).”

And what else is there to say?
