In October, FS1’s Colin Cowherd made it clear that he doesn’t #TrustTheProcess when he scoffed at Vegas having the Philadephia 76ers’ over/under win total at 40 games.

“The over/under on the Philadelphia 76ers is 40 games. This team ain’t winning 40 games. Even in the miserable East.”
“I don’t get that number. I know Philadelphia thinks I’m picking on them this week, but I do not get that… 41 wins. Honestly, if they were in the West, would they be an over/under 21, 22? That’s just gotta be how bad the East is. That’s a bad roster.”
Fast-forward to Wednesday night, when the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Memphis Grizzlies… for their 40th win (40-30), and with 12 games still remaining on the schedule. It’s Philadelphia’s fourth consecutive win, and they currently would have the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference.
After the game, Sixers star center Joel Embiid made sure to remind Colin Cowherd of his incorrect takes on the Sixers, and referred to Cowherd as “Colin Coward.”
