  1. The Evster’s NBA Playoff Preview

    Apr 18, 2014, 8:24 AM EDT

    CALATHESSSSS

    This is not an NBA Playoff preview. I don’t know why I called it that. I guess I figured no one would click on a link titled “Some Things The Evster Felt Like Talking About This Week on a Blog That Actually Pays Him to Write Stuff.” But then again, it’s not like you think you’re about to get legit…

  2. Debating the Sixers’ 2014 Draft Board with Michael Levin (Pt. 1: #1-8)

    Apr 17, 2014, 1:58 PM EDT

    Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins

    With the Sixers’ season coming to an end, we turn our attention to what we all truly showed up for: The draft. To that end, we invited our old friend Michael Levin of Liberty Ballers to come on and debate the Sixers’ big board for this June, with our ordered picks for the 20 names…

  3. Brett Brown is absolutely nervous like the rest of us about the NBA Draft Lottery

    Apr 17, 2014, 12:09 PM EDT

    Brett Brown

    Brett Brown tells it like it is. That’s one of the things most Philadelphians like about him. When the guys in suits on Draft Lottery Night reveal the teams hidden in those cards determined by some ping pong balls bouncing around, Brown is absolutely going to be nervous. “That night when you find out where…

  4. Michael Carter-Williams is your Rookie of the Year and fie on anyone who tries to tell me otherwise

    Apr 16, 2014, 10:59 AM EDT

    It’s hard to remember the last argument that made me as defensive, territorial and generally homer-ish as this year’s Rookie of the Year debate. As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one option for this award, and has only been one since the very first week of the season; that of course being Philadelphia 76ers…

  5. Sixers locked into lottery #2 seed, what it means and where it gets us

    Apr 15, 2014, 2:35 PM EDT

    Bradley Beal, Kevin Love, Damian Lillard

    It’s been all but a done deal for the last week or so, but with the Milwaukee Bucks’ loss in Toronto last night and our own Philadelphia 76ers’ win at home closer against the Celtics–a bookend of Ws in an otherwise L-heavy season of play at the Wells Fargo Center–it’s official: The #2 seed in…

  6. CEO Scott O’Neil promises Malik Rose — Sixers will have a new mascot next year

    Apr 15, 2014, 9:05 AM EDT

    Hip Hop

    Following up on the news that construction could soon be underway on a new practice facility, there appears to be another key addition on the way for the 76ers. Team CEO Scott O’Neil joined Zoo and Malik during last night’s broadcast to hype the team’s surprising success with new season-ticket sales and provide a glimpse…

  7. Report: Sixers could finally break ground on a new practice facility this summer

    Apr 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Navy Yard Building Boom

    It’s been roughly 10 months since the Sixers first proposed building a new practice facility at the Navy Yard in South Philly, and according to a report from the Delco Times’ Chris Vito, construction could actually begin this summer, which sounds like a relief for head coach Brett Brown: “I believe we’re the last team…

  8. So Nerlens Noel wasn’t talking about Captain America being released on 4-4-14, says he increased vertical by 3 inches

    Apr 9, 2014, 2:34 PM EDT

    nerlens.captain.america

    Nerlens Noel can speak. We were reminded of this amazing fact yesterday when the great big hope of the Sixers spoke to the media yesterday for the first time in ages. While his coach Brett Brown wasn’t sure what the ambiguous 4-4-14 tweet was a couple of weeks back and some of us speculated on…

  9. Andrew Wiggins is the clear apple of Sixers geeks’ eyes

    Apr 8, 2014, 11:32 AM EDT

    NCAA Basketball: Battle4Atlantis-Kansas vs Wake Forest

    Obviously, the fate of the pesky ping pong balls on lottery night will have huge implications in Philadelphia, so while the season will mercifully end in a couple of weeks, the real stressful situation to determine the next direction of the franchise is right around the corner. The folks over at Liberty Ballers released their…

  10. Relive UConn’s Championship night through the eyes of Charlie Villanueva

    Apr 8, 2014, 7:45 AM EDT

    Charlie.Villanueva

    Our Friday columnist here at The700Level.com, known to you all as The Evster, has something of a man crush on former UConn Huskie Charlie Villanueva. This is well documented. See: 8 reasons why the Sixers should, no MUST, trade for Charlie Villanueva. So with Kevin Ollie and the Huskies taking down Kentucky in an entertaining…

  11. Nope on Noel for Sixers’ “4-4-14″ game in Boston

    Apr 4, 2014, 5:22 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    Well, we hoped that Nerlens Noel’s cryptic “4-4-14″ tweet some weeks ago was our prospect big man’s attempt to tell us something that not even his coach apparently yet knew: That he would be making his long-awaited return from injury for the Sixers’ April 4th game–incidentally, in Boston, where Noel grew up as a Celtics…

  12. Charles Barkley on Conan: I once tipped $25,000 [VIDEO]

    Charles.Conan

    Sir Charles was a guest on Conan O’Brien’s show on Thursday night and was his typical jovial self. One of the funnier segments was when Chuck unloaded on Shaq for doing too many endorsement deals and rubbing too much lotion on his fake body. Then he gets into some talk about tipping and admits to…

  13. Charles Barkley pranks Manute Bol with Rick Mahorn’s scary face

    In honor of April Fool’s Day Sixers PR man Michael Preston unearthed this gem and shared it with the world. It featured Charles Barkley showing Manute Bol some sort of dinner table with those serving dishes usually reserved for hotel room service, only problem was under one of them was the scary mug of Rick…

  14. The Dog Days Are Over: Sixers thump Pistons, losing streak and bad times done forever

    Mar 29, 2014, 10:48 PM EDT

    Hip Hop

    It’s over. 26 games and exactly two months since the 76ers last experienced the joy of finishing a basketball game with more points than the dudes wearing the other unis, the Sixers are once again winners, triumphing over the Detroit Pistons tonight in front of a very appreciative Wells Fargo Center. The losing streak is…

  15. 17,000 people showed up to watch the Sixers lose to the Pistons — and they WON

    A strangely huge crowd of more than 17,000 showed up at Wells Fargo Center Saturday night expecting (hoping?) to see the Sixers set the NBA record for consecutive losses at 27. They forgot that the Detroit Pistons are a total dumpster fire. The Sixers beat the Pistons, 123-98, in an absolute laugher. It was the…

    The Philadelphia 76ers just lost their 26th straight game to tie an NBA record. The last time someone in Philly had that much trouble on a basketball court, he was sent to live with his Auntie and Uncle in Bel-Air. There’s more in the below video. [Jimmy Fallon]

    The Sixers did what they do last night down in Houston and fell to the rockets to earn their 26th loss in a row, tying the All-Time NBA record for losses in a row. Brett Brown spoke about the 26-game losing streak all matter-of-factly following the game, even echoing some of the sentiments Andrew put…

    Here’s a sneak peek into how things work at The 700 Levvy: Every Thursday afternoon, I email Enrico telling him I have NO IDEA what I’m gonna write about for this week’s post and every week he responds by saying “ummmm” and “durrrrrrr” and “I don’t know what you should write about either.” Then, after some lousy ideas are…

  19. Cost of Doing Business: An unprecedented Sixers season merits unprecedented consequences

    mullens

    The Sixers go for number 26 tonight. It’s been almost exactly two months since Evan Turner hit that tough runner in Boston to beat the Celtics, 95-94. Since then, the Sixers have played 25 games and have lost each and every one of them. None of the games have gone to overtime. Until that wacky…

  20. The Pope has more Philly sports jerseys than you do

    Vatican Pope Family Meeting

    Unless you’re one of those people who love jerseys, maybe. Then you could possibly have more Philly sports jerseys than the Pope now does after Mayor Nutter and his cohorts showered the Pontifex with gifts, most of which were sports jerseys with “Pope Francis” on the back. From Dan McQuade at Philly Mag who suggested…

    Former Sixer Nick Young has been filing in for Kobe Bryant this season in L.A. as the Lakers’ main attraction. Although the team owns the second-to-worst record in the Western Conference, it’s not for a lack of swag. Here’s a quick look at the headlines he’s made in the last week. Last Friday, he got in…

  22. Everybody in San Antonio wanted to hug Brett Brown last night

    Mar 25, 2014, 12:03 PM EDT

    brett.brown

    Brett Brown has nothing but respect for the San Antonio Spurs and always speaks incredibly highly of the memories and championships from the time he spent there. That respect goes both ways. Brown returned to San Antonio last night as head coach of a Philadelphia 76ers team that will likely set the NBA’s All-Time losing…

  23. Watch Sixers announcer Malik Rose call Tim Duncan a horrible teammate

    Mar 25, 2014, 12:40 AM EDT

    timduncan

    The old fan saying goes something like this: “The Sixers are driving me to drink.” Sixers announcer Malik Rose isn’t exactly a fan — at least not on the outside — and he probably can’t drink on the job, so the two-time NBA Champion has to find another outlet for the bad feelings that come…

  24. The Unstoppable Force Meets, Like, the Most Movable Object Ever: A state of the union before Sixers-Spurs

    Mar 24, 2014, 3:04 PM EDT

    37 games. That’s the disparity in win streaks between the Philadelphia 76ers, who have dropped 24 straight, and the San Antonio Spurs, who have rolled through their last 13 games, at the moment. It’s a difference in current franchise realities that should be rather prominently on display when the two teams face off tonight in…

  25. A transcript of Evan Turner’s drive to the airport with Sam Hinkie

    sam-hinkie-USA

    Reports this weekend from Evan Turner’s return trip to Philly with the Indiana Pacers revealed that Turner had driven to the airport with Sixers GM Sam Hinkie, the man who had just traded Evan from the only NBA franchise he’d ever played for. Thanks to bugging equipment the 700 Level had long ago installed in…
