  1. Sixers not exactly shying away from rebuilding concept with new team slogan

    Oct 2, 2013, 12:15 PM EDT

    nerlins.noel.mcw.evanturner

    Most rebuilding teams will never actually admit that they’re in a rebuilding year. They’ll tell you that they have a young team, but that they hope with some maturity and hard work that they can make a push for the playoffs, and establish a “winning culture” in the process. Most teams will never use the…

  2. Grantland’s Bill Simmons picks the Sixers to finish dead last this season

    Oct 1, 2013, 5:03 PM EDT

    Bill.Simmons

    You know your team is in for a rough season ahead when two legit NBA analysts have to really get into it when discussing whether or not said team can compete for the WORST RECORD IN THE HISTORY OF THE NBA. Alas, Grantland’s Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose put some serious thought to it, even…

  3. Tony Wroten, James Anderson and the new look Sixers in the first week of training camp

    Oct 1, 2013, 12:22 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Media Day

    The Philadelphia 76ers have descended upon the Philadelphia Center for Osteopathic Medicine, meaning training camp is officially underway. The new-look Sixers will play their first pre-season game on Oct. 6th (though they’ll be going all the way to Bilbao, Spain for that one) and will debut at the Wells Fargo Center about a week after…

  4. Super sad sentence slams Sixers’ season past

    Sep 30, 2013, 9:15 PM EDT

    Bynum’s best, and really only, impact on the 2012-13 season was his randomly evolving hilarious hair, something that became a bit of thing for a while. It’s sad because it’s true. Well, if you don’t count that super fun press conference at he Constitution Center. Oh, and the bowling GIFs (prob at a new trendy…

  5. Royce White shows off Frank Sinatra tattoo, questions headline writers at the Inquirer

    New Sixers forward Royce White was present at Sixers media day on Friday and, before addressing concerns over his travel arrangements, showed off this awesome tattoo of Ol’ Blue Eyes on his arm: Royce White has a tattoo of Frank Sinatra pic.twitter.com/uaRPf5nvFn — Keith Pompey (@PompeyOnSixers) September 27, 2013 We’ll take this time to briefly…

  6. Evan Turner’s hilarious media day mic test (NSFW)

    Evan

    No words needed. Well, maybe one. (s/o to a number of Sixers bloggers for bringing this to our attention, originally Max Frishberg)

  7. Arnett Moultrie out until new year, thin Sixers roster gets even thinner

    Sep 27, 2013, 10:54 AM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Denver Nuggets

    Poor Arnett. After the Sixers traded a future first in the 2011 draft to nab the Mississippi State forward from the Heat, he was bench-ridden nearly his entire rookie season with a combination of ankle injuries and Cranky Doug Collins. This year, though, he was finally going to get his shot for big minutes on…

  8. Your newest Sixer, Rodney Williams, once threw down pretty hard at the Gola

    Sep 25, 2013, 3:19 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2013-09-25 at 2.18.38 PM

    The Sixers on Monday made former Minnesota Golden Gopher Rodney Williams the latest to sign a partially-guaranteed deal with the franchise, joining him with Khalif Wyatt, Darius Morris, and Vander Blue. Williams, you may remember, played for the Sixers’ summer league team in Orlando after going undrafted. In his final year at Minnesota, the 6-foot-7…

  9. How Much Misery Do We Wish Upon Cavs Fans With Andrew Bynum?

    Sep 19, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    bynum.hair

    Generally speaking, despite all the heartbreak and sleepless nights he caused us in his one inactive season as a Philadelphia 76er, I’ve maintained that I wish the best for Andrew Bynum at his next destination. Bynum’s super-disappointing year in Philly wasn’t really his fault, and the Cavs fans have probably suffered enough post-LeBron decision without…

  10. GIF: Dr. J Gives Bill Walton an Old School Facial

    Sep 18, 2013, 11:52 AM EDT

    Bill.Walton.Dr.J

    Apropos of nothing, here’s a wonderful GIF of Julius Erving doing Bill Walton dirty back in the day. I believe the dunk is from Game 6 of the 1977 Finals. The Sixers lost that series to the Portland Trail Blazers in six games and Bill Walton was named Finals MVP but come on, that facial.…

  11. The Sixers’ New Mr. 500, Royce White

    Sep 16, 2013, 7:28 PM EDT

    USA Today Images

    You might recall a couple years back that in advance of his rookie season with the Philadelphia 76ers, Temple big man Lavoy Allen was ranked at the very bottom of ESPN’s yearly rankings of the Top 500 players in the NBA. The “Mr. 500″ nickname kinda stuck with young Lavoy, and after he had a…

  12. Sixers Sign Darius Morris, Who Woj Says Could Be Around for a Little

    Sep 12, 2013, 1:38 PM EDT

    USATSI_6899496_138566172_lowres

    The Sixers on Thursday continued to fill out what was once an almost non-existent backcourt with the signing of third-year guard Darius Morris. Via Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski: Morris, 22, will sign a partially guaranteed contract for the 2013-14 season, but is expected to make the 76ers’ roster and play meaningful backcourt minutes this season.

  13. Somebody Won a Locker Full of Dikembe Mutombo’s Stuff at a ‘Storage Wars’ Type Auction

    Sep 11, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT

    mutombo-img-1058-480w

    I think anyone who has ever watched the television show “Storage Wars”, where kind of insane people bid on the contents of storage units that the renter has failed to make payments on, has always hoped that one day they’d bid on and win a locker belonging to former Philadelphia 76er and television commercial star…

  14. First Mock Draft of the Year Lands Sixers Andrew Wiggins, Montrezl Harrell

    Sep 10, 2013, 10:06 AM EDT

    NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Michigan vs Louisville

    With the NBA draft just around the corner, a mere nine and two-thirds months away, it’s of course time to break out the first mock draft of the season. If that somehow seems a tad premature and excessive, that’s because of course it totally is, but excitement about this 2014 draft–any Sixers fan who hasn’t…

  15. Report: Royce White Under Investigation for Domestic Assault

    Sep 4, 2013, 2:07 PM EDT

    USA Today Images

    Sad news for those in the #BeWell camp. According to an overnight report from TMZ, Royce White’s ex-girlfriend has filed a police report stemming from an incident between she and White earlier this summer. We’ll let TMZ handle the details: We know … White’s ex-girlfriend Tania Mehra — a Maxim model — filed a police…

  16. Everything You Need to Know About Sam Hinkie’s Ability to Blow Up the Sixers Next Summer

    Sep 4, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    sam-hinkie-USA

    Discussion of the Sixers’ upcoming tank job usually focuses on next year’s loaded NBA Draft. The Sixers will have could very well own two lottery picks, one of their own and one from New Orleans. But what’s getting left out of this conversation is the team’s current roster. You know,  all the guys who will…

  17. Tony Wroten Attempts to Top Spencer Hawes’ Summer Pro-Am Dominance

    Aug 26, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Memphis Grizzlies

    The Sixers must be attempting to stockpile their roster with NBA players who simply dominate the summer pro-am circuit. That’s probably a good thing for the Winless For Wiggins crowd. First it was Spencer Hawes dropping 58 a couple of weeks ago and now it’s newly acquired AU-mancrush Tony Wroten who dazzled with an array…

  18. If the Sixers Don’t Add $10 Million in Payroll, Then… Nothing

    Aug 23, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    USA Today Images

    With all the attention that’s placed on the salary cap, people can sometimes forget there’s also a salary floor. It’s not often we see that come in to play – spending too little is one problem the Flyers will never encounter – but after trading Jrue Holiday for draft picks and making no attempt to…

  19. The Sixers Got Point Guard Tony Wroten for Nothing And That’s a Cool Thing

    Aug 22, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

    NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Memphis Grizzlies

    With Michael Carter-Williams the first and only entry on the Sixers’ current depth chart at point guard–seriously, check it out–it was highly probable that the Sixers were gonna pick up another guy to play the one before off-season’s end. You figured it would probably be an experienced journeyman type, like an Earl Watson or Jamaal…

  20. Gary Payton Is Taking Credit for Allen Iverson’s Practice Rant (With a Guest Appearance from Donovan McNabb!)

    Aug 22, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    payton-iverson-AP

    There are three things I know by heart and will be able to recite for the rest of my life: A Hail Mary, Al Pacino’s speech from Any Given Sunday, and Allen Iverson’s “We Talkin’ ‘Bout Practice” tirade. That quote and video clip has been used and re-used for so long that soon enough there’s…

  21. Allen Iverson’s Sixers Career in 25 YouTube Clips

    Aug 22, 2013, 1:48 PM EDT

    Iverson.ear

    News came down yesterday afternoon (reported, appropriately enough, by SLAM Magazine) that Allen Iverson, polarizing Sixers great and likely future Hall of Famer, has finally accepted the inevitable, and will be announcing his retirement imminently. Iverson played 12 seasons for the Sixers (two of them incomplete) and over those years, he won four scoring titles…

  22. Read Grantland’s Zach Lowe Just Gush over the Philadelphia 76ers’ Name

    Aug 21, 2013, 12:27 PM EDT

    Art by Milton Un for Grantland.

    You’re not going to find the 76ers in the Top 5 of many lists this offseason. Unless it’s a list for potential Top 5 picks in the 2014 draft or maybe teams who are the furthest under the salary floor. In Hinkie we trust! But fret not Sixers fans. You have a new reason to…

  23. Nerlens Noel: A Top 25 Player By 2017?

    Aug 19, 2013, 2:17 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    The good folks over at SB Nation recently assembled a team of heavy hitters to make some projections about the NBA landscape four years from now, compiling their predicted list of the Top 100 Players in the NBA for the year 2017. Such an exercise is obviously short on empirical study and long on intuitive…

  24. Brett Brown Cleans House of Assistant Coaching Staff, All Family Business Settled

    Aug 16, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

    NBA: New York Knicks at Philadelphia 76ers

    It’s not gonna make too many headlines on city paper front pages the same day that the most successful manager in Phillies history is summarily dismissed, but it’s worth noting that Charlie Manuel’s removal from office is not the only coaching change that went down in Philly today. After brushing off questions about retaining the…

  25. What Are We Looking for From New Sixers Coach Brett Brown?

    Aug 16, 2013, 1:02 PM EDT

    Brett Brown

    The weird thing about following a team that everyone presumes is tanking next season–and everyone agrees should be following that exact strategy–is that it’s hard to get excited about potentially positive developments for the team. Any personnel move that might make this team better had better not make the team that much better for at…
