The next time anyone says the Sixers should miss the playoffs and collect lottery picks ...

... show them the Sacramento Kings.

Friday at the Wells Fargo Center, the Kings rolled out a virtual highlights film of recent NBA drafts ... then played one hideous game of basketball, lost by nine and fell to 17-31.

"We know we have great talent," said Tyreke Evans, the Kings' former All-Delco guard. "We know we can play with anybody. We just have to be ready every night.”

They should be able to beat anybody by now, after six consecutive non-playoff season and resulting Draft Day treats. But that's not how it works in the real world.

As for the Sixers, their better bet is to keep a spot open for Andrew Bynum, continue to improve with their new playing rotation ... and avoid the believing the false promise of multiple lottery picks.
