Scout skewers Sixers in Sports Illustrated

Any regular reader knows I think Eddie Jordan is incompetent but that doesn't mean his players should be unprofessional. An unnamed Western Conference scout recently told Sports Illustrated just how bad things have gotten at the Wachovia Center.

"They are having dunk contests before games; they are running plays sloppily or not all the way through; and they aren't listening to (coach) Eddie Jordan," the scout said. "They have quit. They know Eddie is gone (after the season) and they think they don't have to listen anymore. The thing is, they are making themselves look like a-------. These guys think that just because Eddie is gone they will be back (next year). But nobody wants guys who give up when things go bad. Eddie's offense was a bad fit for this roster - they have to find a way to play more up-tempo - but these guys are embarrassing themselves. And everyone around the league knows it."
