  1. NBA No-Trade Clause: Only Kobe

    Feb 13, 2006, 12:01 AM EDT

    Marc Stein answers the question many, myself included, have been wondering. Iverson doesn’t possess the ultimate hammer. NBA front-office sources confirmed Tuesday that his contract does not contain a no-trade clause. In fact, as far as I know, the Lakers’ Kobe Bryant is the only NBA player who has one. So if Iverson did in…

  2. AI: Not Charlotte?!?

    Feb 12, 2006, 9:05 PM EDT

    Iverson’s like "CHARLOTTE?!?!  They have a team???  Holy shit.  Wait!  Forget it!  I’ll stay!  I’ll stay.  Jesus.  Forget I said anything." Let’s check in with the comments section over at the Inquirer’s article about A.I squashing a deal to Charlotte.  A poster "Reality" weighs in: You people all need to get a grip. It’s the…

  3. Rocky @ Art Museum Yesterday

    Feb 12, 2006, 2:35 PM EDT

    From Yahoo news: "A man identified as Sylvester Stallone, left, prepares to film a scene for the movie ‘Rocky Balboa,’ during a snow storm, on the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Saturday, Feb. 11, 2006, in Philadelphia. (AP Photo/Joseph Kaczmarek)" My understanding is that on Friday, fans were filmed running up the steps…

  4. Philly Mag: Requiem for a Heavyweight

    Feb 12, 2006, 9:38 AM EDT

    Rocky Balboa, the movie, comes to theaters on December 22nd.  Philadelphia Magazine’s cover story this month tells the story of how Sylvester Stallone defined Rocky and, in turn, how Rocky defined Stallone.  It’s a solid read. At times you’ll be nodding in agreement and at parts you’ll disagree completely, but it takes a look at…

  5. Swoop Santa vs. Phanta Claus!

    Fanhouse: You Missed Your Chance to Meet Swoop Santavs.Phanta Claus Comes Early I know, nobody gives a rats’ ass about mascots but me.  Whatever.  Get your own blog.

  6. Iverson’s Locker Cleaned Out

    Feb 11, 2006, 10:15 PM EDT

    610 WIP just reported that Iverson’s locker has been cleaned out and his name plate removed. No deal has been made as of the buzzer of the Sixers/Blazers game.  The Sixers lost their 8th straight.  I caught the end of it.  Iggy missed a desperation three that would have won it.  I kept waiting for…

  7. WATN: Kenny Lofton & Marlon Byrd

    Feb 11, 2006, 9:31 PM EDT

    Former Phillies Kenny Lofton and Marlon Byrd will be reunited in the Texas Rangers outfield.  My favorite part of the Forbes story on Lofton: Over 16 major league seasons with Houston, Cleveland, Atlanta, the Chicago White Sox, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, the Chicago Cubs, the New York Yankees, Philadelphia and the Dodgers, Lofton has a .299…

  8. Don’t Fire Andy Reid

    Feb 11, 2006, 10:11 AM EDT

    There has been some confussion among readers of The 700 Level about my feelings on Andy Reid.  Some felt the Andy Reid image and associated "Fire Andy Reid" message was my own doing.  This is not the case.  The image you see to the right was an advertisement placed here through BlogAds.  We don’t agree…

  9. Iverson & Cheeks Final Blow Caught on Tape?

    Feb 11, 2006, 9:20 AM EDT

    NBC10, in a report from Friday, may have caught A.I.’s final interaction with Mo Cheeks at practice on Friday.  Don’t get your hopes up for much in this video, but it’s interesting none the less.

  10. If Only Iverson Was a Bowler

    Feb 11, 2006, 12:12 AM EDT

    This all started because A.I. skipped the team bowling event for the elite season ticket holders last week.  This could have been the incident that broke the camel’s back. Let’s take a quick look at Stephen A. Smith’s column yesterday on Iverson titled Only one thing can restore Iverson’s tarnished image — winning a championship. …

  11. Phanta Claus Comes Early

    Feb 10, 2006, 6:14 PM EDT

    I almost went down to the second annual Phillies holiday sale for the sole reason I wanted to see my buddy Sid dressed up as Santa next to the Phanta Claus.  It never happened.  But you can see more pictures of little kiddies with Phanta Claus in the Phillies.com photo gallery. Phillies fans get early…

  12. Iverson Roundup: Hope for Oden

    Feb 10, 2006, 1:17 PM EDT

    The Fanhouse points us to an article in the Charlotte Observer which says the Bobcats are thinking of putting in a bid for Iverson: "We made some inquiries if it was real," coach-general manager Bernie Bickerstaff told the Observer on Saturday. "Michael (Jordan) and I plan to sit down and chat" about whether to make…

  13. 2006 Torino Olympics Tonight

    Feb 10, 2006, 11:53 AM EDT

    Ready for The Flying Tomato?  That’s what they are calling Shaun White at NBC.  Is this one of the worst sporting nicknames of all time?  I think I would rather be called Carrot Top II or something.  Damn. You don’t need a program to identify the teenage sensation from sunny Southern California. Just look for…

  14. Chris Webber & Tyra Banks

    Feb 10, 2006, 10:21 AM EDT

    One of the only reasons I ever venture to SI.com is their sometimes great photo galleries.  Today they have some of the top celebrity/athlete breakups of all time.  It’s a bit surprising that Alyssa Milano only made the list twice?!?  Anyway, I bet if Tyra Banks were still dating CWebb and she got all Spike…

  15. Most Hated Athlete: Terrell Owens

    Feb 9, 2006, 11:29 PM EDT

    GQ asked pro athletes who are the 10 most hated among them and who do you think came in at number one?   You guessed it, Terrell Owens. 1.

    MTV’s next Two-A-Days has to be filmed at Tift County High.

  17. Hugh Douglas Calls Out McNabb

    Feb 9, 2006, 12:51 AM EDT

    Hugh Douglas thinks Donovan can lead on the field, but in the locker room, he can’t get in anyone’s face: "The thing that Donovan needs — it’s been proven, especially this year — he needs other people to lead," Douglas told WIP-AM (610). "He’s not a leader. He doesn’t want to lead. He is the…

  18. AI: ‘a change may be the best thing for everyone’

    Feb 8, 2006, 10:00 PM EDT

    It looks like A.I. may have played his final game wearing a Sixers uniform.  Iverson was told he did not need to come to the Wachovia Center tonight for their game against the Wizards.  Iverson released the following statement through his agent. his morning, I went to the practice facility and was ready to participate…

  19. Philly.com Comment Section

    Feb 8, 2006, 10:53 AM EDT

    Paul Hagen, in an article talking about the Phillies being in an enviable position by having a surplus of quality veteran starters, gives us a math lesson:  2 + 2 = 4, it’s just that simple. Let’s check out some of the bright thoughts in the comment section of the article.  Terry Penelton has an…

  20. Report: Iverson Taps Out

    Feb 8, 2006, 9:28 AM EDT

    Citing two NBA GMs and the agents for a pair of 76ers, Peter Vecsey of the New York Post has reported that Allen Iverson has asked to be traded. According to the Post article, Iverson met with Billy King on Tuesday and demanded to be moved. Vecsey supports the agents’ story with statements from two…

  21. Operation Slap Shot

    Feb 7, 2006, 6:11 PM EDT

    I used to love Rick Tocchet, basically just cause his name was Rick Tocchet.  Supposedly the whole ring has ties to Joey "Skinny Joey" Merlino, who was seen years ago sitting in Eric Lindross’ seats.  Throw in Wayne Gretsky’s wife for good measure and you have yourself one hell of a gambling scandal.  ESPN: New…

    Ey, yo, ey! Part two of the video here.

  23. The Sixers: Not Good

    Feb 7, 2006, 10:01 AM EDT

    Wow, 19 shots in a row: [NYT] The Houston Rockets held the Philadelphia 76ers without a field goal for more than 15 minutes in the second half of the Rockets’ 87-81 victory last night. Only free throws kept the 76ers in the game after an incredible stretch of offensive ineptness. They did not score from…

  24. Freddie Garcia Deal Done

    Feb 7, 2006, 12:58 AM EDT

    Phillies get starting pitcher Freddie Garcia and give up Gavin Floyd and Gio Gonzalez.  I like it.  Phillies fans have heard too much about the potential of some of their young arms.  I’m glad we no longer have to worry about when Gavin Floyd is going to turn into a good major leaguer.  We can…
