Losing streak is at 20. That's the franchise record. League record is 26.

They really could "lose out". Schedule is tough. The one to watch is March 29 vs Detroit. If their streak continues they will either snap their losing streak or go on to immortality. Or is that obscurity?

Could this be the beginning of the "Bynum Curse"? :D

I can't believe they haven't "caught" Milwaukee yet. Sixers haven't won a game since sometime in January.

It's pretty bad what is happening in Philly right now as it's apparent they are tanking. If anybody had any doubts it should have disappeared at the trade deadline when they traded arguably their best player in Evan Turner ( the # 2 pick in 2010 and averaging over 17 points this season ) to Indiana for Danny Granger and then waived Granger just a few days later.

It's ridiculous that the only way (other than "get lucky") to escape from NBA purgatory is to strip the team down to nothing, clear a ton of salary cap room and go for the ping pong balls.

The Sixers have finally gotten smart to the fact that You need to hit rock bottom before You can get better. The guy that's their GM is apparently an analytics guy that turned the Rockets around.

Is the "hitting rock bottom to rebuild" theory a legit one?
I'm not a big NBA guy so I can't point to any examples where a team turned it's fortunes around by dumping it's best players and tanking the end of the season.
As a casual observer, it seems to me like the good teams are generally good every season, and the bad teams are generally bad every season. I don't see it like the NFL, where a team can seemingly its fortunes around in a single season.
I think certain NBA teams have a stench of failure attached to their franchises that is nearly impossible to wash off.

I'd thought near the beginning of the season that the Knicks were the ones who were trying to tank to hit the lottery next draft. Looks like I was wrong.

No need for the Knicks to tank this season since they already traded away their 2014 1st round pick to Denver in the Carmelo Anthony trade.

The ping-pong ball thing makes it "fallible" although teams have set themselves up in the past by "tanking" the season (most notably San Antonio)

True, but there were rumors they were going to try to trade away Anthony early on, as well as a couple of others.
