What fans think: "With a little luck and perserverance this team can win 20 games."
Whoa! Slow down, chief. Let's not go nuts. A lot of times you hear an announcer spout a cliche about how "if you wrote this script, they'd throw it out." It's usually an overused line that attempts to suggest Hollywood isnt' creative enough coming from an announcer who re-uses the lines of others. It also means the story is so crazy that no one could believe it. If this 76ers team can win even 18 games, it's the most unlikely success story in the history of sport.
