Michael Carter-Williams Drives and Kicks to…the Referee

We are all super aware that the Philadelphia 76ers are a god-awful and shameless tank squad. But to their credit, they are acing the front office’s blueprint, standing at 0-14 on the season. Personally I don’t even think the team is trying anymore. Just look at point guard Michael Carter-Williams, who literally kicked the ball out to the referee during their game against the...

Michael Carter-Williams Thinks The Referee Is His Teammate

Aww, that’s cute. While a three-pointer (from anyone) would have helped the 76ers’ cause Monday night, it still wouldn’t have been enough, as they lost 114-104 to the Portland Trailblazers.

Michael Carter-Williams tosses pass to referee Haywoode Workman

Michael Carter-Williams and the Philadelphia 76ers are having a rough season (that’s an understatement). And this play against the Blazers pretty much sums up their entire season thus far.
