Tony Wroten doesn’t think the Sixers would lose to Kentucky
The Kentucky Wildcats are the talk of college basketball once again this season, and the Philadelphia 76ers are once again the worst team in the NBA with an 0-11 start to the 2014-15 season. Kentucky product and Phoenix Suns guard Eric Bledsoe recently commented that this year’s Wildcats could flat-out beat the 76ers.
One of the 76ers players spoke up in disagreement, via John Gonzalez of CSN Philly:
Hollis Thompson and Brandon Davies decided not to comment, instead designating Tony Wroten as their spokesman on the issue. Before an entire question could be asked about what Bledsoe said, Wroten responded.
“Nah, they can’t beat us,” Wroten replied. “He’s crazy.”
So you obviously heard what he said. Was it insulting?
“Yeah, it’s insulting,” Wroten said. “He might be serious, but I know Bledsoe. I’m not going to take it personally.”
It’s a tough conversation to have when you’re putting the top-rated college basketball team up against the NBA’s worst team. Some might say that there’s no chance the 76ers could lose from the simple fact that they have NBA players, but some might actually argue that with Kentucky’s imminent NBA talents, they would legitimately have a chance. I would likely argue the former.
