Dirk’s Buzzer Beater ends Sixers Streak

Despite missing 13 of his first 14 shots and 16 of 23 overall, the seven-foot forward hit a turnaround 17-foot jumper over Reggie Evans at the buzzer to give the Dallas Mavericks a 95-93 victory against Philadelphia, snapping the 76ers’ season-high seven-game winning streak.   Nowitzki received the inbounds pass with 4.3 seconds left and spun around the 6-foot-8 Evans to deliver the game-winning shot.

Nowitzki finished with 24 points, Jason Kidd had 22 points and 12 rebounds and Jason Terry added 20 for the Mavericks (24-17).Mavericks 76ers Basketball

Lou Williams scored 25 points, while Andre Iguodala had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the 76ers (20-21), who are trying to climb above .500 for the first time since Nov. 23 when they were 7-6.

Andre Miller added 12 points for Philadelphia, whose four-game home winning streak ended.

Who is the UGLIEST Philadelphia Sports Athlete of All-Time?

We all know that the star athletes always got the hottest girls in high school and for the most part that translates to the pros as well. Tom Brady and Gisele Bundchen, Tony Parker and Eva Longoria, Kris and Anna Benson to name a few. But there are some dudes that just play simply for the love of the game because, grant it, they couldn’t get a girl if their life depended on it. In Philadelphia we have seen our fair share of ugly mugs, so that begs the question; Who is THE ugliest Philadelphia sports athlete of all-time?

Without further ado, the nominees please:tyilll.jpg

Tyrone Hill – First things first, the skinniness of his head is grotesque, creating a skeleton look which is thoroughly defined in the cheek region. He could be possibly the ugliest player to have ever graced an NBA court. I’m not even sure he plays anymore due to the fact that he was giving small children nightmares, but why bother with details when someone has reached this level of ugliness. I believe he keeps both of his Escalades parked in his enormous nostrils. If he has somehow managed to procreate I fear for our future.

Rod Brind’Amour – Man this guy has one ugly grill piece. His nose must have broken over 100 times to obtain that robust shape. Rod should block more shots with the left side of his face. That is the only hope he has to fix that 90 degree angle nose he’s sporting.

Sal Fasano – Sal has a face not even his mother could love. Those flowing locks, the perfectly trimmed handle bar mustache, that rock solid body. Sometimes I think Sal may have gotten beaned in the face about 134 times. He is so ugly that his shadow is afraid of its shadow.

Ike Reese – A fan favorite in the city and new voice of 610 WIP Ike Reese has to be one of the ugliest Eagles in Philadelphia football history. The lopsided shape to his dome is fascinating and it seems during his football days he embraced many a hit with the left side of his skull.

My Vote:  My vote has to goto Tyrone Hill. A savvy vet, he was a Sixer during two different stints in his 18 year career. I will always remember Tyrone Hill, not for his accomplishments on the court, but for his heinous appearance, on and OFF the court. He was tough to watch, in more reasons then one for those of you who saw him play. But hes a winner in my book, winner of the Philadelphia’s Ugliest Athlete Award. Congrats Ty.
There are way to many to list them all, but some other notable ugly Philly athletes: Mike Ricci, John Kruk, Darren Daulton, Lenny Dykstra, Bobby Clarke, Reggie Evans, Dikembe Mutumbo, Jon Runyan, Jamal Mashburn, and Shawn Bradley to name a handful. Please feel free to add to the list.

Sports Guy’s Trade Machine

Bill Simmons hit the trade machine hard as we approach the 3 pm deadline. Here is what he came up with for the Sixers and Andre Miller.

TRADE 5: Philly trades Andre Miller, Reggie Evans, Calvin Booth and Kevin Ollie to Minnesota for Theo Ratliff’s Expiring Contract, Sebastian Telfair, Chris Richard and Craig Smith.simmons_bill_m.jpg

Why Philly does it: I know, I know … this trade looks insanely lopsided on paper. So allow me to explain. Philly would use Miller to dump Evans’ contract, shed some luxury tax dollars (they’d save $8 million with this trade), pick up a good bargain in Smith (one of my favorite undersized power forwards, although they’d have to re-sign him), take a flyer on Telfair (showing some promise lately), and shed as much as $14 million in expiring deals after this season, giving them extra money to re-sign Andre Iguodala and remain a major player in this summer’s free agent market. I like Miller, but he’s never going to be an All-Star, he’s always stuck on losing teams and he’s a free agent in 2009, so you know they’re dumping him next season, anyway. Why wait a year? The 2008 free agent class is loaded and only four teams will be under the cap this summer? What’s the sense in waiting nine months to deal him for an expiring contract and a crummy No. 1 pick.

Why Minnesota does it: Here’s what I don’t understand about the NBA. You’re the T-Wolves. Your fans are ready to drink the Jim Jones Kool-Aid. You have no hope of ever luring a free agent there, and beyond that, you have a GM who shouldn’t be allowed to sign free agents under any circumstances. You also haven’t had a good point guard since Sam Cassell. So why not roll the dice with Miller and build around him, Al Jefferson, Corey Brewer, Randy Foye and 2008 Lottery Pick X? Not a bad foundation, right? I don’t see how it helps Minnesota to get absolutely nothing out of Theo Ratliff’s Expiring Contract. I really don’t.

(By the way, is anyone else getting sad that we only have 24 hours left with Theo Ratliff’s Expiring Contract? I miss it already. Or him. Whatever it is.)

My Take: 

Uhhh, I cant really grasp this trade, and I don’t think the Sixers front office would go for it either, but it is kind of intriguing cap wise. I do like Craig Smith, and consider him and upgrade over Reggie Evans, however, I don’t see how this really betters the team. Bassy Telfair is a mess, Theo Ratliff again. Ill tell ya one thing though, I sure wont miss Kevin Ollie. No thanks though.

NEXT.
