0-16 Philadelphia 76ers Two Games from Worst Start in NBA History: The Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Dallas Mavericks Saturday, falling to 0-16 and setting a record for the worst start in the 68-year history of the franchise. A Philly.Com poll asks whether the team will break its own NBA record of 73 losses in a season. So far, 85% say yes. The worst start in NBA history is 0-18 by the New Jersey Nets in 2009. The 76ers' next three opponents are San Antonio (12-4), Minnesota (4-11) and Oklahoma City (5-12).

It's the worst team I've ever seen. A lot of weird things happen in an 82 game schedule and they'll fall into some wins but it's hard to imagine this team getting to double digits.

Compare the 76ers roster to the 11-12 Bobcats who won only 7 games out of 66. I think the Bobcats probably win seven out of every ten games versus this 76ers squad.

76ers regular season wins this season
or
Cavaliers playoff wins this post-season

Well, the only good thing going is a chance to beat S.A. because Pop will bench his aging super stars often this time of year.
