The Sixers era under Mo Cheeks is off to a slow start. A.I. is lighting it up but the team is struggling defensively and can’t seem to get others involved offensively. Steven Hunter has impressed me but hopefully Sammy’s healing up nicely and will get back on the court in the next week or so.
Once again last night, the Sixers were unable to get anyone not named Allen Iverson or Chris Webber involved in the offense. Once again, their defense was ineffective in guarding a pair of long, swift and talented wing players. Once again, they got pounded on the boards.
Sixers Taken To School [Inky]:
"My mother was, like, ‘I don’t care what you say about basketball, I want you to get an education,’ ” Chris Webber was saying last night, before a harsh 108-88 loss to the Detroit Pistons and after an emotional morning ceremony during which his jersey was retired at Country Day.
