So by now we’re all done popping champagne over the selection of USC power forward/center Nikola Vucevic at #16 in this year’s draft and we can come back down to earth a little and talk about what we actually have here. It seems like a lot of fans are pretty down on the guy, and I can’t really blame em. At Nikola’s first media interview as a Sixer, I couldn’t even think of anything good to ask him because the only questions I had for him were insulting ones. How do you think a slow, unathletic guy like you is gonna fit in on a team of run-and-gunners? Do you think you’ll be able to beat out Spencer Hawes for the team’s position of skilled-but-largely-ineffective white starting big man? Do the names “Samuel Dalembert” and “Shawn Bradley” mean anything to you?

For a number of reasons—the excellent post-season that just finished, the looming threat of a lockout, the relatively weak pool of talent to choose from—the 2011 NBA draft has been the least-buzzed-about draft the sport has seen in recent memory. Though there’s some intrigue due to the inevitable surge of trade rumors around this time of the year (none the least of which involving our own Andre Iguodala), the lack of any real marquee names and the involvement of a whole lot of unknown quantities in this draft has taken a lot of the sizzle out of it—and that’s for the teams drafting at the top. For our beloved Philadelphia 76ers, selecting this year with the 16th and 50th pick, things are even more muddled and less exciting.

Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s tv show to play the dating game. Evan Turner apparently loves boobs.

Amidst the reports last night that color-commentary announcer and former NBA great (well, former NBA very-good at least) Mark Jackson had been named the next coach of the Golden State Warriors, a second story floated out of Golden State, reported by the normally reliable Ric Bucher: That the Warriors were considering a trade with the…

Going into this year’s post-season, it seemed like chances were pretty good that the Heat’s predicted dominance over the NBA would not start for another year or two, if indeed it started at all. Health, chemistry and mental makeup issues dogged the team all regular season, and a number of high-profile late-game meltdowns—often in marquee…

Evan Turner, like most of the players on our beloved Sixers these past few years, is not going to be mistaken by anyone for a tough guy. Not that he’s not tough—hey, you try coming back from a broken back after only a couple weeks when you’re in college—but his rep in this world as…

Going into the 2011 season, the Braves were expected to be the Phils’ primary competition for NL East supremacy, with a good number of prognosticators even predicting them to take the division. While it’s still far too early to consider claiming a pre-emptive victory over such haters, there’s no doubt that the Braves’ start has…

It’s been a fun series of reminding the visiting Jayson Werth what he’d be missing when he chose not to re-sign with the Phillies this off-season, like the ace-level pitching of Vance Worley and the reliable power hitting of Raul Ibanez. The Phillies took the first two games of their first home series of the…

Well, it was certainly an unexpectedly emotional season for our Liberty Ballers. While we were all willing to write the boys off for the year after their 3-13 start and start hoping that they were out-and-out crappy enough to at least get themselves a good lottery slot, we started caring again when they proved to…

I have never been less upset about a heartbreaking defeat than this one. I want to cry a little, sure, but it’s not out of searing desperation or bitter regret—it’s because my heart is absolutely swelling with pride over how this team performed tonight, as proud as I was of the Flyers after Game Seven…

It’s hardly surprising to see that LeBron James sees his team’s first-round match up with the Sixers as something he and his cronies should be able to take care of while sipping their morning coffee and reading their local paper—this Heat squad has already set all kinds of records for unsubstantiated arrogance, and it’s like…

While leaving the Wells Fargo Center yesterday after the Sixers’ stunning 86-82 victory over the Heat, my parents and I came to the realization that we had no idea when game five of this series was going to be played. Probably it would be Tuesday or Wednesday, but none of us had thought to check.…

In my preview for this series, I said something along the lines of “Stranger things have happened” when addressing the possibility of a Sixers upset in this series. Well, after the Heat handily won the first three games of this series, this qualification no longer applies–if the Sixers won the remaining four games o fthis…
