Madness. Mayhem. It has been a long wait. Joel Embiid broke his navicular bone and shattered every reasonable forecast for what might happen in Thursday evening’s draft.
With just three home games remaining in the season, the Sixers have a chance to do something they haven’t done since the third game of the season…

It was dicey. For a little while, it looked like the Sixers might snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. That simply wouldn’t do. There are bigger things at work here. That requires losing.
