Top 100 Moments of the Sam Hinkie Era

Tonight, the Sam Hinkie era officially comes to a close. When the 76ers send in their pick to commissioner Adam Silver — no spoilers! — it will be the Colangelo family pulling the strings, for the franchise's first major decision in over three years to not be made under strict Process supervision. It's been a singular period in Sixers — nay, professional sports — history, one filled with more losing than a Susan Lucci award-show retrospective, but one infinity times more memorable than so many franchises' mediocrity-mired periods of wheel-spinning, including our very own immediately proceeding Our Once and Always Dark Lord's brief reign. 

Before officially putting the final period on the Hink's chapter of Sixers history (and, dare to dream, the historic losing along with it) it's important to take one final look back on the last three years — from Hinkie's hiring four Mays ago to the end of his final season at the helm in Philly — and remember the times that were good. These are the performances, the plays, the victories, the trades, the picks, the tweets, and even the f**k-ups you couldn't help but laugh at that made the last three seasons of L's worth suffering through. #HinkLife, now and forever.
