Michael Carter-Williams Named Rookie of Month

images-1

MCW was voted the Eastern Conference’s Rookie of the Month for November today. He led all rookies in scoring with 17.6 ppg, assists with 7.3 and steals at 2.9. He is the first Sixer since Allen Iverson in 1996 to win Rookie of the Month Honors (I know, what about Willie Green or Alvin Jones you ask!). Iverson went on to win the NBA Rookie of the Year Award after the season and so far Carter-Williams seems destined to follow in his footsteps.

The King’s Ben McLemore won the Western Conference’s ROM award.

We’re Back, and so are the Magic

Ok, so its been a while, but tonight the Sixers, mired in a four game losing streak take on the Orlando Magic, who are pretty evenly matched with our Sixers.

In the past two weeks things have happened. Spencer Hawes has been hurt. Kendall Marshall, who was once a lottery pick is now with the 87ers.  Andrew Wiggins has played poorly, Jabari Parker has been a beast and the Sixers have started traveling down the most common-sense path for the organization. Happy trails Sixers, who are now the seventh-worst team in the NBA. 

The Starters:
The Magic (6-11)
PG Jameer Nelson
SG Victor Oladipo
SF Aaron Affalo
PF Glen Davis
C Nikola Vucevic

The Sixers (6-11)
PG Michael Carter-Williams
SG James Anderson
SF Evan Turner
PF Thaddeus Young
C   Spencer Hawes

 

Ah, life

Been a few days since posts have gone up. No one really cares any way, but, there will be posts coming much more frequently starting today. Jabari Parker too.
