In exactly seven days (or 168 hours from now), the #Pacers open the regular season at home vs the #76ers.

Chris Sheridan

The upset of the day was the biggest win the #Sixers may have all season: Draft Lottery reform rejected. wp.me/p1Ogzi-ly5

Sean Deveney

Favorite quote from Jeff Van Gundy today, talking about the @Philadelphia 76ers :"If they win 15 games they will have overachieved to the highest level"

#Sixers B Brown on lottery situation: 'Different times I thought it'd go one way. Other times I thought it'd go the other way.' #76ers #NBA

Amin Elhassan

Zing RT @Michael Lee: What about 76 percent? RT @David Aldridge The Sixers should cut their ticket prices across the board. Say, 7.6 percent?

Jeff Caplan

LOL MT @David Aldridge: The inquirer reported 2 wks ago that 76ers said their avg tix price would increase this season. bit.ly/1waHEyc

Tom Moore

Link to #Sixers stories and Wednesday video with Brown on lottery staying same, plus some scrimmaging: theintell.com/sports/sixers/ #76ers #NBA

David Aldridge

If true, that's wrong. The Sixers should cut their ticket prices across the board. Say, 7.6 percent?

David Aldridge

The inquirer reported two weeks ago that the Sixers said their average ticket price would increase this season. bit.ly/1waHEyc

Ira Winderman

Adam Silver says if lottery reform eventually is adopted, it will come with teams, "appropriately on notice." So play on . . . 76ers.

Tom Moore

#Sixers Roberts on chances: 'I showed what I can do in summer league. I wasn't able to show it in the preseason, but still 1 game left.'

Tom Moore

#Sixers Roberts: 'I feel good. It's unfortunate I wasn't able to play the last four games.' @SJUHawks

Chris Sheridan

Apparently there were other teams besides #Sixers that like the #NBA lottery format. A dozen teams, to be exact sheridanhoops.com/2014/10/22/lot…

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown on roster: 'Nothing is etched in stone. It's all fluid.' Team will consider signing guys waived by other teams. #76ers #NBA

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown: Robald Roberts practiced again & should play tomorrow night. Called him 'a jumping jack.' Also plans 2 look at Chris Johnson.

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown says probably won't start Noel tomorrow night.

Curtain open at #Sixers. Scrimmaging with starters (same as Monday's game) vs. backups (Ware, McDaniels, Johnson, Moultrie & Gordon).

Chris Sheridan

Biggest victory of the season for #Sixers happened today as draft lottery reform failed to pass: sheridanhoops.com/2014/10/22/lot…

Tom Moore

#NBA lottery odds: Team with worst record has 100 percent shot at being in top 4. Under proposal, would've only been 44. #Sixers #76ers

John Gonzalez

League exec on lottery vote: "Biggest win of the year for the Sixers." Zing. #sixerstalk

Vincent Ellis

SVG says Spencer Dinwiddie (left knee) will play tomorrow night against the #76ers. Will receive 18-to-20 minutes. #Pistons

John Gonzalez

NBA probably needs lottery reform of some sort, but just enacting a plan to do it and punish Sixers was foolish. BOG finally realized it

John Gonzalez

Major win for Sixers MT @Adrian Wojnarowski: NBA draft lottery reform has been voted down at Board of Governors meeting. System stays.

Rick Bonnell

Other teams found the 76ers' tanking unsavory, but the proposed fix might have added to big-market teams' ability to hoard talent.

Simone Sandri

Thanks Sam Presti... RT @Ethan J. Skolnick Tank away, 76ers. Tank away.

Simone Sandri

Tanto rumore per nulla, la "campagna" di Sam Presti porta risultati (13 voti "No") e la Lottery non cambia...Sospiro di sollievo per i 76ers

Keith Pompey

The#Sixers have to be delighted right now. The proposal not passing is a huge win for the franchise. #LetTheTankingContinue

David Aldridge

To summarize: Sam Hinkie gets hired as GM by the Sixers. He says he'll build thru the draft and is going to (cont) tl.gd/n_1sdbcoq

Derek Bodner

Reminder: Players and coached have openly talked about tanking impacting playing time before. #sixers have not been worst offender.

Jody Genessy

When I think about the Sixers/tanking, I can't help but repost this photo of the security door at Wells Fargo Center. http://t.co/eRJyd46cAM

Bob Cooney

People I've talked to around the league are surprised the new lottery system didn't pass. All agree big win for Sixers.

#hoopidea: Everybody let the 76ers beat them this year. Philly will get swept out of the playoffs and be kept out of the lottery.

Jeff Zillgitt

At the end of the day, owners - at least for now - didn't want actions of Sixers to establish hasty draft lottery reform.

Derek Bodner

Although, to be honest, I think short term the impact on #sixers was minimal. This is a win for the NBA IMO.

Derek Bodner

This is a bigger win for the #sixers to open a season than when they beat the defending champion Miami Heat on opening night last year.

Andrew Sharp

This is the only kind of Sixers win that doesn't end with Hinkie quietly seething

Derek Bodner

Plan is going well. Impact of this change on #sixers is minimal RT @AA_610: @Derek Bodner we are f'ed.. the plan is going up in flames.

Do yourself a favor and follow @matt_breen for today's #Sixers coverage as I travel to #Detroit. #GreatDudeGreatReporter

Derek Bodner

I really like @SethPartnow, but I do very strongly disagree with his assertion that #sixers strategy "falls apart". bballbreakdown.com/2014/10/21/76e…

Examining effectiveness of the #sixers vs #magic rebuilds in 5 years will be fascinating. Similar situations, but very different execution
