Do Sixers Have a Contingency Plan?
After watching the Sixers get taken apart, 105-88, by the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday at the Wells Fargo Center, I’d say the future is pretty much now.
The Sixers don’t have to give up hope that (Andrew) Bynum will eventually be able to play this season, but whatever contingency plan they have needs to be put into action.
This team plays hard. It gives effort. But on some nights that hasn’t been enough, and as the season moves on it’s going to happen more and more often.
It doesn’t matter if it’s against division-leading teams like Oklahoma City, New York and Chicago or against a struggling team like Minnesota, the Sixers can find themselves in a matchup where their margin of error is just too minuscule to come out on top.
