    Joshua Harris

    The Wall Street Journal reported on the banner year private equity firms had in 2013. Right near the top of the list of earners is Sixers’ owner Josh Harris and his Apollo Global Management teammates. Now, Harris didn’t pull in the $546.3 million that Apollo’s CEO Leon Black took home in dividends and investment proceeds…

    Kids who grew up in Delaware County are used to their place of origin being the brunt of many a jokes. And for the most part Delco earns it. That said, there are a few treasures nobody can take from us. Former Sixers GM Ed Stefanski and longtime L.A. Angels Manager Mike Scioscia as well…

  4. #TBT: A portrait of the sports blogger as a little kid

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:39 AM EDT


    Most people remember the 1985-86 Sixers for names like Dr. J, Moses Malone, Sir Charles Barkley, Andrew Toney, Mo Cheeks, Bobby Jones, etc. The team was still stacked with incredible talent. But not many remember the rookie sensation that was Terry Catledge. I do. Why do I? Because it wasn’t Moses or Mo or even…

    Jon Stewart made the decision to tread on the rarely successful land of cheesesteak jokes on Thursday night’s edition of The Daily Show. It was in a segment about Hot Pockets being recalled and referenced a croissant cheesesteak offered by the world’s leading meat pocket maker. The croissant angle led him to the obvious Geno’s…

  7. You gotta see the flashy kicks Nerlens Noel was rocking at TU-UConn last night

    Feb 21, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Nerlens at Temple-UConn (2 of 2)

    Now that Sam Hinkie went and traded Spencer Hawes and Evan Turner, the 27 games left on the Sixers’ slate this season are going to be brutal. Not that they weren’t going to be brutal before, but even more so now without two of their old starters. One of the lone aspects of the stretch…

  8. The Clippers’ plane had to stop to let Byron Mullens off yesterday after he got traded

    Winter Weather

    The NBA trade deadline is a pretty exciting day for fans hoping their team could make the big move at any moment that could right the Brett Brown ship with eight holes in it. But it’s obviously not all that fun for those who actually play in the league whose place of residence and work…

  10. Scott Hartnell reading a fake Bernie Parent children’s book is pretty good

    Feb 20, 2014, 12:49 PM EDT


    We’ve talked about Scott Hartnell’s children’s book on numerous occasions in the past but did you know former Flyers goalie and brilliant contributor / love doctor Bernie Parent also has a children’s book? Well, he doesn’t really, but the folks over at WMMR’s Preston and Steve show thought it’d be a good idea to…

    Feb 19, 2014, 1:06 PM EDT

    Phillies Spring 2014 - Chooch

    We may have missed this over the winter when it was first reported, but a PBT post today highlighting Bob Brookover’s Inquirer column this morning informed us that Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz received an exemption from MLB that will allow him to take Adderall in 2014. This is notable, of course, because Ruiz received a…

  13. Next key date in Sixers’ rebuilding plan? ‘Early ticket renewal’

    Feb 19, 2014, 9:55 AM EDT


    The Sixers’ organization, by most accounts, is headed in the right direction. In the sense that, they’ve got a pile of something and they’re trying to build something better out of it. You can’t get much worse than just having a pile. Hence, right direction. And the organization is smart enough to even have a…

  14. Young Kevin Grow gets more use out of No. 33 Sixers jersey than Andrew Bynum did, according to Evan Turner

    Feb 18, 2014, 11:34 PM EDT

    Kevin Grow - Sixers04

    You’ve likely heard the tale of local high schooler Kevin Grow who had the amazing opportunity to sign a two-day contract with the Sixers and tag along with the team for a whole bunch of events. The young baller’s run was capped off this evening with a chance to hang with the Sixers’ players in…

  15. Pizza Hut Delivers: West Chester kid gets $10k after original half-court shot debacle

    Feb 18, 2014, 5:25 PM EDT


    Fans who aren’t big on following rules were outraged after a West Chester University student was seemingly robbed of the $10,000 owed to him for hitting a half-court shot at a game last week. Turns out, the rules said he had to hit all of the shots in succession, and that meant no big cash…

  16. Chris Bosh of all people says the Phillie Phanatic is scary looking

    Feb 18, 2014, 4:02 PM EDT


    The Starters crew over at did their uniquely quirky thing at All-Star Game Weekend down in New Orleans and, once again, it did not disappoint. First, they had some fun asking the stars of the big game what kind of smoothies they would make. But more apropos to this website is when they asked…

    Feb 17, 2014, 11:29 AM EDT


    Hundreds of people gathered in South Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon to run around in the cold rain and snow and then drink beer afterwards. And they did it all while only wearing their underwear. Seems totally normal, I know. It was all part of the second annual Cupid’s Undie Run which takes place in cities…

  20. Noted Cowboys’ fan Dom Brown received a personalized Philadelphia Eagles jersey, says he’ll wear it

    Feb 15, 2014, 6:58 PM EDT


    The city of Philadelphia briefly pondered exiling Phillies outfielder Dom Brown after he tweeted a photo of himself at the Linc in a Cowboys jersey during an Eagles game. Alas, most of us just drank another beer and forgot about the whole thing a minute later. Not CSN/NBC’s John Clark, however. Clark is down in…

    Feb 14, 2014, 10:42 AM EDT


    Evan Turner’s Instagram account can drop something of incredibly high quality at any moment. Like when he’s on the crapper at Spencer Hawes’ house for example. The Kid ET posted the above photo of what appears to be toilet paper with President Barack Obama’s face on it. Sixers fans have come to know Spencer’s Republican…
