On Wednesday night the 76ers ended the 2009-10 season with a 125-111 blowout loss to the playoff bound Miami Heat.
With the loss the organization is expected to fire Head Coach Eddie Jordan Thursday after his disappointing one-year term with the team reports the Associated Press.
Jordan led the team to a miserable 27-55 record as the Sixers finished among the NBA’s worse, missing the playoffs for the first time in three seasons.
Everything about the season proved to be a failure.
With key injuries to Thaddeus Young, Elton Brand and Lou Williams, Jordan had nothing to hold his highly questionable Princeton offense together.
As the season slowly fell apart Jordan at least had his braces to kept his teeth intact.
With the way the year ended, season ticket holders will want General Manager Ed Stefanski out as well.
While Ed Snyder and the boys are at it, they might as well disassemble the whole team.
They’re bad. Real bad.
The organization can take three positive things from this season however.
– The Allen Iverson experiment failed/ worked depending on if you think the team was doomed from the start of the season but at least Iverson played his last game as a Sixer.
– The team was so bad the organization has no choice but to make major changes and it the case of this franchise any change is good.
– And the Sixers were so bad, they’ll get their first top ten draft pick since they took Andre Iguodala with the ninth pick in the 2004 draft.
This is great news for Philadelphia’s second off-season rebuilding franchise.
All-Americans Evan Turner, John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins highlight a highly talented 2010 class who’s future destination will be decided through the NBA lottery.
Let’s just hope the balls bounce the Sixers way off court better than they did on the court.
With the Sixers in search of their fourth coach in three years and with the way they’ve been hiring lately you have as good a chance as ever to sit court side with the pros- as a coach not a fan.
So get that resume ready.
