After Monday’s loss to the Spurs the Sixers sit at 0-17 to start the season; one game away from tying the NBA’s all-time record for worst start to a season, two away from breaking it. While the Sixers flirted with the history books last season by embarking on the record-tying 26-game winless streak, they were ultimately happy to avoid the distinction of longest losing streak. “It’s not something I wanted to be part of,” Michael Carter-Williams said at the time, “so it’s great we got that win.” Philadelphia Inquirer

Sixers draftee Dario Saric, 20, was named the Euroleague Basketball MVP for the month for November. The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 15.5 points and 7.75 rebounds to lead Anadolu Efes of the Turkish Basketball League to a 3-1 record for the month. "I think it's a fantastic example of [Sixers general manager] Sam Hinkie's ability to draft," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. "I think it's a fantastic example of all we have to look forward to and be excited about. "I think that at times as we go through difficulty and we lose, it's easy to get down. But then you remind yourself, well, [sidelined rookie center] Joel Embiid is going to be a unique player. And Daric, being the youngest player of the Euroleague to be named an MVP validates his skill set." Philadelphia Inquirer

Jason Richardson is projected to return to the court right before the NBA All-Star Game in February. The Sixers guard hasn't played since he injured his left kneecap in January 2013. He suffered a stress fracture in his right foot in October while rehabilitating his left knee. "I'm the type of guy, I'm not settling for that," Richardson said of returning right before the All-Star Game. "In the worst case, it could be the end of this month. It just depends on how my body reacts, how my foot reacts, how my knee reacts. It's a waiting game." Philadelphia Inquirer

The 76ers have more MVPs than any other franchise outside of Lakers and Celtics, so the team's Top 50 is obviously stacked with talent.
