I know it’s only been two games but this Philly squad sure doesn’t look like they are trying to tank the season. Evan Turner has been great and rookie Michael Carter-Williams followed up one of the best NBA debuts ever with an impressive 14 point and 5 assist performance against John Wall and the Wizards.
Wall did get the best of him with 26 points, 6 assist and 1 baby Shammgod move but it was Williams that made the big 4th quarter 3 pointer and helped the 76ers to their first 2-0 start since 2006.
John Wall also became the first player to receive a flopping warning this season. He will be fined $5k for his next warning.
If you don’t know the story of the “Shammgod” move made popular by the player God Shammgod then watch this video.
