  1. 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…

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

    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…

  3. 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…

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. Josh Harris: ‘The Sixers are staying in Philly’

    Aug 15, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Joshua Harris

    If there was ever any doubt about 76ers owner Josh Harris’ commitment to keeping the 76ers in Philadelphia, he attempted to put that to rest on Thursday. Harris’ ownership group has finalized a deal to purchase the New Jersey Devils and the Prudential Center in Newark (pending NHL approval). The unholy alliance was rumored for…

  7. There Will Be No Holiday In Philadelphia This Year

    Aug 14, 2013, 2:41 PM EDT

    After the shocking draft day trade of Jrue Holiday a few weeks back, the Philadelphia 76ers were left with only one of the Holiday brothers on the roster. As of today, there are no more Holidays in Philly. According to the Inquirer, the Sixers waived Justin Holiday today. The Justin of the Holidays appeared in…

  8. Spencer Hawes (Yes, Our Spencer Hawes) Drops 58 Points in Pro-Am Game

    Spencer Hawes posterizes the competition. Spencer Hawes runs the floor, dribbling through traffic – behind-the-back seamlessly into a crossover – then stops and pops for three. Spencer Hawes hits the turnaround jumper, the fadeaway, and the up-and-under. Spencer Hawes protects the rim, announcing to the world they better get that garbage out of his house.…

  9. Brett Brown Ignores the Haters, Signs on with Sixers for Four Years

    Aug 12, 2013, 11:29 AM EDT

    NBA: Playoffs-San Antonio Spurs at Golden State Warriors

    Way to not give into peer pressure, BB. Despite Marc Stein’s asserting on Friday night–after what seemed like official word of Brett Brown’s commitment to the Sixers as their latest head coach–that Brown’s coaching peers with the Spurs and elsewhere were trying to take him out of a coaching job in Philly, calling the Sixers…

  10. Royce White Intends to Play Opening Night, Per This Picture of Two Lions Fighting

    Aug 11, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    lions-fighting

    Royce White did not play a game his rookie season. The reasons why are well noted. But this tweet from Sunday night indicates that White sees himself on the floor when the Sixers host the Heat on Oct. 30: Get a chance to play against @KingJames game 1, really cool. I’m excited! When 2 lions…

  11. Sixers Release Schedule: A Look at the Fun Times Ahead

    Aug 6, 2013, 6:53 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Miami Heat

    The schedules for all 30 NBA teams were released today, with the release of the news packing its usual “oh yeah, I guess there’s really nothing that exciting to be learned here” punch. I haven’t counted to make sure, but it seems like the Sixers will indeed play 82 games this season–41 home, 41 away,…

  12. The Sixers Are Going on a Second Date with These Four Coaching Candidates

    Look, you know how it is. You move to a new town, you’re trying to find a place, get settled in at work, meet some new people, your mom — who in this case may be Rhea Hughes — keeps asking when you’re going to meet somebody… But so far, Sam Hinkie has seemed rather…

  13. Oh By the Way, 76ers Still Without a Head Coach – Does It Matter or No?

    Aug 5, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    slideshow-051413-sixers-hinkie-csn

    It’s a slow news day. The Phillies are off tonight and have drifted deep into no man’s land anyway, the Eagles held another open practice today at the Linc earlier but kept things light, and the Flyers and 76ers are firmly entrenched in their respective offseasons. That being said, we could probably talk about the…

  14. The Evster’s Midseason WNBA Awards

    It’s been another roller coaster season in the WNBA filled with ups and downs and women throwing the ball off the bottom of the backboard and right back into their own faces. In the East, the Chicago Sky (led by local hero Elana Delle Donne) have SKY’ED to the top of the standings, while out…

  15. This Is What Jrue Holiday Will Be Wearing Next Season

    The New Orleans Hornets are no more. Introducing, the New Orleans M-Fing Pelicans! (Note: M-F’ing not actually part of their official name.) The Pelicans on Thursday unveiled their new uniforms for the 2013 season. That’s Jrue there on the right. You remember him. The Internet seems to think the design is a bit boring. Uni-Watch,…

  16. Experts Agree: The Sixers Are Gonna Be the Absolute Worst Next Season

    Jul 31, 2013, 3:04 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference

    Well, we traded our only reliable offensive creator, we drafted a guy who might not play at all next year, and we still don’t have coach. Aside from that, things are looking bright for the Philadelphia 76ers–seriously, we got all them prospects and draft picks and cap space and whatnot–but obviously, winning games next year…

  17. Watch Nerlens Noel Dance Gangnam Style with Children

    Nerlens.Gangham

    I’m no doctor, but I’m gonna go ahead and say Nerlens Noel is on the way to recovery from his torn ACL, at least well enough to teach kids at John Calipari’s ProCamps the important lessons of teamwork, leadership, and Gangnam Style. Who is having more fun at ProCamps, the little ones or Nerlens Noel?…

    Want a $2 dollar toaster that will print the Phillies’ logo on your bread? Of course, you do. [UPDATE: THE TOASTERS ARE ALREADY GONE. ONE GUY BOUGHT THREE.] Welcome to the annual Wells Fargo Center blowout sale. This is the event when all the dated merchandise leftover from last year — or even years prior…

  20. Video: Charles Barkley Grinding On a Middle-Aged Woman Because Why Not

    Chuck.Barkley.dancing

    I’ve been wondering for years why nobody has started a blog entirely dedicated to the amazing things Charles Barkley says and does on a regular basis. Chuck is like the chocolate river in Willy Wonka. The goodness just keeps flowing. His latest web gem is video of him grinding with a middle-aged woman at Ray…

    The Philadelphia 76ers finally introduced their big prize of the Jrue Holiday trade this afternoon at PCOM as No. 6 overall draft pick Nerlens Noel met with the local media for the first time. One of the topics Noel touched on was his new GM, Sam Hinkie, and how he managed to pull off such…

  22. Charles Barkley Was Just Giving Out Hundred Dollar Bills at Golf Tourney

    Jul 23, 2013, 1:06 PM EDT

    charles.barkley

    Charles Barkley’s golf swing is so bad that if you were in attendance over the weekend to watch him play at the American Century Championship in Lake Tahoe, he may have given you a crisp hundred dollar bill. Really. According to BuzzFeed who rounded up a bunch of tweets from the event, the former Philadelphia…

  23. Fire Sam Hinkie

    Jul 23, 2013, 10:34 AM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference

    The Sixers need a general manager who’s willing to do the most important thing of all: give frequent local media interviews Sam Hinkie should be ashamed of himself. He’s been the general manager of the Philadelphia 76ers for two months, and in that time he’s given two press conferences and zero radio interviews. His only…

  24. Ben Revere Seems to Have Just Learned of Andrew Bynum’s Contract, And He’s Not Happy

    Jul 20, 2013, 9:16 PM EDT

    7-20-13-revere-bynum-faces

    Ben Revere feels your pain, Philly fans. He’s also probably still feeling some of his own pain, with a broken foot that’s expected to keep him out for the next six to eight weeks. His use of “this dude” and not “mah dude” is a clear sign of judgment, one made all the better by…

    Sixers Dream Team Final Auditions 07/17

    The Sixers held final auditions for their Dream Team dancers at Parx Casino on Wednesday night and CSNPhilly.com’s Kevin Drennen was there to take some photos for us. The ladies were set to dance from tunes from J-Lo and Fergie so hopefully you were there to catch the exciting action. (The Phillies return to the…
