Michael Carter-Williams almost quadruple double in NBA debut vs Heat
After a summer of hearing about how the 76ers are going to tank so they can increase their chances of getting Andrew Wiggins and then a day of gambling jokes as Vegas predicted hell will freeze over before the 76ers win a championship, the Philadelphia 76ers had an answer for everybody Wednesday night against the Heat and it couldn’t have happened on a better night.
With Sixers greats Dr J, Moses Malone, Charles Barkley, Bobby Jones, Billy Cunningham and Allen “The Answer” Iverson, who finally made his retirement official, in attendance to honor Sixers employee Jeff Millman for 50 years of service, 22 year old rookie Michael Carter-Williams put on an epic performance in his NBA debut as Philly beat Miami. Williams messed around and flirted with a rare quadruple double by racking up 22 points, 12 assists, 7 rebounds and a rookie record of 9 steals! He also hit 4 3-pointers, only turned the ball over 1 time and started his career with a dunk in front of the 19,523 fans in attendance.
