Enjoy “February free agency” while it lasts, folks. After Metta World Peace and maybe even Danny Granger get bought out and waived, you know what awaits?
The dark days. March Numbness … or Sadness … or Badness. If you think the Sixers are bad now, allowing 130 points to the Bucks on Monday night, just wait. It will be mind-numbing.
The six weeks after All Star Weekend is the part of the schedule that players dread. It’s the part of the season that is too far from either the beginning or the end. No matter what your team’s situation is, this stretch sucks. Nobody likes this part. Not the fans. Not the coaches. And certainly not the players.
