Photo: How It Feels to Watch The Sixers Lately

Welp. The Sixers just keep losing.

They were fighting an uphill battle when they were playing without Andrew Bynum, but once they lost Jrue Holiday as well the task of winning basketball games all of a sudden started to appear as an impossible feat.

They dropped their 4th-straight game last night in Texas, making that 7 of their last 9 ending in defeat. There hasn't exactly been any positive takeaways to try and rationalize a "they're losing BUT"-angle either.

Evan Turner's shooting and overall play this season has been a positive. And I guess it was good to see Dorrell Wright have his best game of the season last night. Wright has had a hard time fighting for Doug Collins' minutes, but with Jrue out he found some last night and took advantage by hitting 7 three pointers, good for third-most all time in a game by a Philadelphia 76er.

Still, the above photo just captures the essence of watching the Sixers lately. Dorrell Wright and the boys may hit some shots to keep things interesting, but in the end you're going to feel pain. And sometimes that pain comes in the form of Chris Kamen.

Mike Trout joins push in trying to lure LeBron James to Sixers

Mike Trout joins push in trying to lure LeBron James to Sixers

LeBron James to the Sixers. It would take a miracle, right?

Sure, but one MVP is in on the push for the four-time MVP landing in Philly.

Enter Mike Trout.

The Angels' star outfielder, a two-time AL MVP and native of Millville, New Jersey, took to Twitter on Thursday to make a quick pitch for the King. Trout, a well-known fan of Philadelphia sports teams, responded to a 94WIP tweet about reporter Howard Eskin shooting down the LeBron James chatter.

First, it was Ben Simmons tweeting James. That's really how all the buzz started and now the idea is taking on a mind of its own. Clearly, it's being talked about. And what Sixers fan wouldn't want a player like James putting "The Process" into hyperdrive?

And hey, once James comes to Philly, he can then return the favor: bringing Trout to the Phillies.

We can dream, right?
