Robert Covington is going to be the fans’ scapegoat

Robert Covington is going to be the fans’ scapegoat

The All-Defensive First Team forward just can’t seem to do anything right in some Sixers fans’ minds. The Sixers are in a great position to succeed this year, even if the season didn’t start off on the right foot.

Liberty Ballers is asking for the community’s help in ranking the Sixers’ full roster (12 active players, 3 inactive players, 2 two-way players) according to on-court value for the upcoming season.
