The Philadelphia Sixers are trying their hardest to stay competitive in the Eastern Conference, and they’re giving the Toronto Raptors all they have on Friday night. The team was accused of tanking and mailing it in earlier in the season, but the Sixers have shown spurts of not too shabby basketball and that can be attributed to it’s roster of talent.
Let’s be frank, the Sixers aren’t going anywhere except the draft lottery this year, but that doesn’t meant they can’t be entertaining on their way there. Thaddeus Young is at least trying his hand at this, something that was evident in his crazy layup on Friday.
That looks like a man who desperately wants to get traded out of Philadelphia and placed on a team that isn’t interested in tanking and rebuilding.
