No, The Sixers Aren’t the OMG Worst Professional Basketball Team Ever


Every two or three years the “could NBA team X beat the best team in college basketball” question is asked across the 32,000 different ESPN/SI platforms. For whatever reason people believe this is a legitimate debate to have, which in fact it is not. After 26 straight losses it’s the Sixers turn to be compared to college teams. So for anyone who at all questions if the Sixers are better than every college team here are the stats for the current Sixers in the final season of college basketball along with any accolades they collected along the way.  Spoiler alert!  The list is long.  Look over the list, then ask yourself if it is still a debate worth having. If your brain isn’t filled with pebbles you’ll come to the correct answer fairly quickly.
