One of the most famous rear ends in all of the music biz took the stage at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night. A number of Sixers stars were in attendance for the hip-hop show, and it showed on Sunday as the team played like ass against the lowly Sacramento Kings.
The Sixers dropped an ugly overtime loss at home against the Kings. The bench, typically one of the best in the league and a bright spot for Doug Collins’ crew, came up real small on Sunday afternoon, including a pitiful 1-12 shooting from Lou Williams. If nothing else, this loss reaffirmed the certitude that under no circumstances should any individual choose to willingly listen to the music of Lil Wayne.
LouWill did hit the big three at the regulation buzzer to send the game into overtime, his only made field goal of the game, but he told reporters after the game that a team outing to said hip-hop concert that included such artists as Nicki Minaj may have taken a little out of their step.

“We took a chance [Saturday night] by going to the Lil Wayne concert,” Lou said after the OT loss on Sunday.
But did the concert really have anything to do with their poor performance? It’s tough to say.
“You had guys that went that played well, you had guys that went that didn’t play well,” Williams added.
