Trust the Process?
Close the blinds, open the tub of ice cream and crank up some R.E.M., 76ers fans. I know you must be hurting right now and I just want you to know that it is okay to cry.
You’ve put up with such an unbelievable load of crap these past three seasons that the United Nations has officially declared the Wells Fargo Center a hazardous waste zone.
You’ve had to just sit there and take it as Sam Hinkie has run your once-proud franchise into the ground, all but purposefully throwing games by gutting your roster and throwing out a mismatched collection of D-League players every night.
You’ve listened as Hinkie says to “trust the process,” to allow for this temporary stay in the cellar while he collects draft picks and assets that will turn the team into a contender.
You’ve watched Joel Embiid prepare for a career in the WWE by becoming steadily more ripped from the bench, Jahlil Okafor allow approximately 10,000 uncontested layups a game and Nerlens Noel fumble the ball every time he gets it further than 15 feet out, as it has become painfully obvious that the best players on your team will never lead you anywhere worth going.
And now somehow you have to deal with your recent Number 1 pick, the possible savior of your franchise, Ben Simmons, sitting out at least the first three months after he has surgery on his right foot. Someplace, somewhere, Allen Iverson and Julius Erving are shedding a single tear.
Quick update on the Tim Tebow baseball situation:

Whew, I’m sorry, I’m not sure what just came over me.
