So Gary Bettman didn’t exactly receive the friendliest of receptions during the NHL Draft in Philly on Friday. But booing one of the easiest targets in sports isn’t just a Philly thing — it’s a national tradition. Here’s a list of the five most notorious booings to take place in Philadelphia (which means no McNabb on draft day, sorry).
Will the 76ers win another game this year? After the team’s 11th straight loss, a 130-110 defeat to the Milwaukee Bucks, it doesn’t seem that far-fetched a question. The Bucks are the only team with a record worse than the Sixers this season.
Monday night’s game was such a snoozer for the Sixers that it literally put a fan in the front row to sleep.

Fresh off their 45-point drubbing at the hands of the Clippers on Sunday night, the Sixers faced Golden State on Monday night. And guess what happened? They lost, 123-80. A 43-point defeat. Hey, it’s an improvement.
Of all the franchises in the NBA, the Los Angeles Clippers are historically the worst. (They’re kind of like the Phillies of basketball.) Of all the NBA teams, only the 10-year-old Charlotte Bobcats have a worse winning percentage. This is a franchise where notoriously penny-pinching owner Donald Sterling once held a Black History Month event in March. The team has won 1 division title and been to the playoffs only 9 times.
Anyway, the Clippers’ biggest win in franchise history is now over the Sixers.
