The Sixers need to get over their west coast road trip

Not that I'm insensitive to how difficult the Sixers recent west coast road trip was or the rigors of the NBA, but .... GET OVER IT!

The game I witness last nite (an 87-83 loss to the Bucs) was HORRIBLE! There was no energy. They sleep walked thru the whole thing! Charlie Villanueva had more energy than the entire squad.

Yea ... I know you just came off the road trip from hell. Six games on the road ... on the west coast ... in eleven days. So what if you had to play a game on New Years eve ... So what if Kyle Kover got traded during the road trip. So what if you lost to Kyle's new team on the road. So what if you got spanked by the Lakers (twice in the last last few weeks)

This is the NBA baby. Your gonna have a road trip just like this every year. You started 2-1 in the first 3 game of the road trip. You gotta find a way to win 1 of the next 3 ... this is the pros ain't it? I know no one has offered excuses but "we gotta work harder" will only get you so far. Somebody's gotta step!

There's a new game almost every nite ... like tonite for instance.
