WIP Morning Show asks Twitter about James Harden, proves that anyone who voted is either a bot, troll, or suffering from recency bias
Well this certainly didn’t take long. The enemies of the people, better known as the WIP Morning Show released a poll this morning asking if James Harden will help lead the Philadelphia 76ers to an NBA title.
The poll of course, is just beyond stupid. Since it was so stupid, I’m now writing about it. I can’t believe WIP would even run this poll in the first place and assuming that it’s not just trolls and robots casting votes, I’m not too happy with the results either.
WIP Poll Results as of noon today:
Keep in mind, the Philadelphia 76ers are 7-3 over their last 10 games and are currently in second place in the Eastern Conference only 2.5 games behind the East-leading Miami Heat. On top of that, the 76ers are now 6-1 with James Harden on the court.
76ers Games with James Harden
- Timberwolves: Win 133-102
- Knicks: Win 125-109
- Knicks: Win 123-108
- Cavs: Win 125-119
- Bulls: Win 121-106
- Nets: Loss 100-129
- Magic: Win 116-114
Okay so now that we know that the 76ers record, although a small sample size, looks pretty good during the Harden-era, you’re probably wondering why this poll is even happening in the first place.
Well, it’s because WIP absolutely hate Philadelphia sports and prey on the general unhappiness of Philly sports fans, obviously.
If you’re still not convinced, let’s check out what James Harden has done since joining the Sixers.
Harden has averaged 22.9 points, 10.4 assists, and 7.1 rebounds in seven games with the 76ers. He’s shooting 42 percent from the floor and just under 41 percent from three point range.
Sure, he had two bad games in a row but given such a small sample size, there’s no reason to panic. We have reached the final month of the NBA season. No one likes this time of year. Veteran teams are just waiting for the playoffs to start and any rational fan is doing the same.
We’re looking at either recency bias, stupid people, or Twitter bots casting votes on this poll from the WIP Morning Show. My guess, it’s a mixture of all three.
The Sixers are back in action tonight against the Denver Nuggets in South Philly.
