07:59 AM ET 03.06 | "Worry," Doug Collins said before losing to the Celtics "is the greatest thief of joy" -- and yet the Sixers probably should be worried. Collins' needn't worry, though. His guys don't seemed worried, and they don't appear to lack for joy. ... Maybe the pressure -- to the extent that there was any on this team -- is off the Sixers now. The expectations placed upon them after acquiring Andrew Bynum have been lifted since the center has missed the entire season and recently said he isn't sure that he'll play at all this year. ... [The] Sixers are so far from the playoffs that they'd need a high-powered telescope just to get a fuzzy glimpse. At some point, perhaps they looked around and accepted their situation.

They haven't given up they just don't have enough good to great talent to win games. Jrue has to play at a peak level just to compete and be in games

QUOTE(#14):

Andrew Bynum has been a major disappointment for Philly. Unfortunately they will probably resign him for big money.

Disappointment? He hasn't played.
