Wow, this was a dumb loss. Bottoming out is a good thing. Bottoming out is a good thing. Bottoming out is a good thing. Bottoming out is a good thing. It doesn’t feel good.

Sielski: NBA's most shameful? Knicks, not Sixers

The most embarrassing franchise in the NBA has a game at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night, and if your first thought upon reading that insult was, Big deal - the 76ers play at the Wells Fargo Center 41 nights every season, then shame on you for such shortsightedness and parochialism. No, the Knicks are coming to town, and they're bringing a 17-21 record and, as usual, enough dysfunction to keep New York's tabloids in back-page, all-caps, huge-honking-exclamation-point heaven for months.
