I have always loved the Philadelphia 76ers.
I would go to the old Spectrum in 1973 and buy a cheap seat and eventually end up courtside. If you think the 76ers are bad now, you have a short memory. The 1972-73 team was historically bad — winning just 9 out of 82 games. They were so bad that when I sat courtside I had to suppress the urge to yell “next!” like I did to play in pick-up games.
Things quickly got better. By the mid ’70s, the 76ers were a powerhouse in the NBA. I believe the same thing can happen with the 2013-2014 version of the 76ers.
