The Sixers are having another rough season. They're currently 0-11, and a major reason for that has been their terrible job keeping hold of the ball.
Philadelphia almost got their first win on Monday against the Dallas Mavericks, falling to Dirk and co. 92-86. In that game, the turnovers were the Sixers true undoing, as the Mavs scored 28 points off turnovers.
After the game, coach Brett Brown spoke about the turnovers:
#Sixers Brett Brown: 'I should just walk off the stage (asked about 27 turnovers). What else do you say?'

"This team is built to turn the ball over. I hope it's not at that margin. " #sixers head coach Brett Brown on the 27 turnovers.

Pretty rough to hear your own coach say you're “built to turn the ball over” – and isn't it his job to make them better players so the turnover numbers decrease?
Good luck to Sixers fans this season.
