Brett Brown had a good quote about Tony Wroten earlier in the season about how Wroten might make the most incredible pass you've ever seen in your life, and then the next one will be off someone's foot. That's T-Wrote for you this Sixers season--he takes your breath away one minute, only to break your heart the next.
There really might not be ten players in the entire league better at scoring at the basket than Tony Wroten.

We've gotten to see a whole bunch of both the good and the bad from Tony this season, particularly as he's been subbing for Michael Carter-Williams as the team's starting point guard while the latter heals from skin infection (grossss). Last night, it was much more of the breathtaking variety, as Wroten ended with seven assists to go with ten points (albeit on 2-12 shooting) and nine rebounds in the Sixers' 94-83 home loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
Three of those assists--and a fourth that should have given eight him total, if not for Thaddeus Young blowing a wide-open layup--were so very nice that we figured they deserved their own YouTube compilation:
Don't ever change, Tony Tempeh.
