Ben Franklin invented a number of things, but basketball wasn't one of them. However, he was a patient dude, and that must be what he passed along to his hometown Philadelphia 76ers.

Those cellar-dwellers posing as an NBA team may finally be seeing daylight. It took 'em long enough.

The Sixers have been calling this a process for what seems like forever. But dudes are in the playoff hunt for the moment, anyway. Somewhere, Ol' Ben is surely lighting up a key on a kite string in their honor.

Franklin didn't invent rotational key rings with a hoops theme, but if he did, they would've looked like this:

Who knows? He might've even charged more than $12.42 for it.

But we don't at Fanorama. And you don't even have to be a Sixers fan to enjoy it. You've just gotta love hoops.

So, start your own process and get clicking!
