James Anderson missed his first game for the Sixers Monday night, meaning he also missed his first game in this 21- (and counting) game losing streak. That leaves Thaddeus Young, Tony Wroten and Elliott Williams that have been played in each contest during the entire slide.

By the way, when James Nunnally entered the game in the first quarter, he became the 21st played to appear for the Sixers this season, the 19th to do so during this franchise-record losing streak (the list is below. Daniel Orton and Darius Morris were the two Sixers lucky enough to get out before this current roof fell in.

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
