I Don’t Get It:
The Sixers apparently are complaining about the NBA’s proposal to change the formula for who gets the No. 1 pick. It used to be the team with worst record had a 25 percent chance. That could change to make the lowest four teams all have an 11 percent chance. Apparently the Sixers believe this will interfere with the plans to tank another season. I don’t get it.
Kudos to Mercy Fitzgerald officials, who used a full-page ad in today’s print edition to offer their thoughts and thanks to the community following last week’s tragic shooting incident. They also honored caseworker Theresa Hunt, who was killed. Her funeral was last night. A very nice gesture.
“We experienced the most tragic event in the 80-year history of our ministry.”
