Sixers Romp Bobcats: Watch Dre to Thad's Sweet Oop Set up

Sixers Romp Bobcats: Watch Dre to Thad's Sweet Oop Set up

The Sixers are quite good at pounding the crap our of lowly opponents this season. We both know this very well and love it eve more. The only real thing we learned on Friday night is that the Charlotte Bobcats may be as bad as the Washington Wizards.

Friday night's 89-72 victory over the Bobcats was the kind of game you hope to catch on at the bar you're at while you enjoy a few frosty beverages. The Sixers are beating the crap out of a team so badly that you just have to peek over at the TVs every now and then and catch a ridiculously awesome Andre Iguodala alley-oop on the run to Thaddeus Young.

This is how you do it on the break:

It was another all-around team effort from the Sixers, with Lou, Jrue, Jodie, and Thad all reaching double digits in points. Iguodala added 9 of his own with 6 dimes. Lavoy Allen followed up his breakout performance on Monday with another nice evening. Coach Collins called him a "pleasant surprise" this season following the game.

Notes: Will Smith was in the building, a fact the Sixers fans in attendance in South Philly on Friday night absolutely ate up. The "Revolutionaries" fan group chanted in his direction multiple times and Will gave them a nice head not and point in their direction.

The Sixers were up so big that Andres Nocioni found himself with some numbers on the score sheet (4 points!). And the Sixers newest acquisition, free agent signee Francisco Elson, also got into the game. Route city, baby.

Collins on Hawes: "He is getting better" and "We're hoping Monday."

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah nah! Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah nah!

The Sixers announced on Wednesday morning that they'll be unveiling their fourth edition jersey in the near future to be worn on seven tribute nights with a "Spirit of 76" theme to them.

It will include a bell logo on both the jerseys and at center court of the Wells Fargo Center.

"'Spirit of 76,' introduces a new 'bell' logo, inspired by imagery from Philadelphia's 1976 bicentennial celebration, a special center-court logo signed by 76ers full season ticket members, collectible tickets and membership boxes for season ticket members," the team said in a statement.

“We are excited to announce the ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign as it provides another incredible opportunity to celebrate the proud tradition of the 76ers with the city of Philadelphia, our fans, players and alumni,” said Philadelphia 76ers Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Chris Heck. “The ‘Spirit of 76’ campaign honors the legendary icons who paved the way for this organization, while recognizing the passion and intensity of our fans.”

The City Edition jerseys will join the Association Edition (home), Icon Edition (road), and Statement Edition jerseys this season.
