    Scott O’Neil was introduced as the new CEO of the Philadelphia 76ers yesterday and made a pit stop with Michael B. and Gonzo on Philly Sports Talk Live to get his feet wet. O’Neil told a story about his days working with the Eagles back in the Bobby Hoying era and wearing a suit up…

    With Dwight Howard and Josh Smith officially off the market, and Chris Paul long since committed to re-upping with the Clippers, the NBA’s off-season attention turns to our very own Andrew Bynum, the ultimate wildcard in this year’s free agency. Yahoo reports that Bynum has already been offered a two-year, $24 million offer from Cleveland…

  3. Philadelphia 76ers Hire Former MSG Exec Scott O’Neil to Replace Adam Aron

    Joshua Harris,  Adam Aron

    Adam Aron is out as CEO of the Philadelphia 76ers. It just took a little longer to make it all official and stuff, but the demise is real this time. Aron will be replaced by former MSG President Scott O’Neil. No word on whether O’Neil is a fan of Twitter, moose, or t-shirt cannons. Both…

    Jrue Holiday and his longtime girlfriend and very talented soccer player Lauren Cheney finally tied the knot over the weekend and many of his former Sixers teammates were in attendance for the couple’s special day. But getting there wasn’t easy. Thanks to the on-the-scene reporting of Sixers guard Evan Turner, we learned that a limousine…

  5. Michael Carter-Williams Shows the Good and the Bad in Sixers Summer League Debut

    Jul 7, 2013, 6:46 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference

    26/8/7 seems like a pretty good stat line for a professional debut, doesn’t it? That’s what Michael Carter-Williams posted today in his first game in uniform for the Philadelphia 76ers, as they faced off with the Houston Rockets in the opening contest of the Orlando Summer League. The Sixers lost the game 88-80 to a…

  6. Hey, the Sixers Got Royce White for Basically Nothing!

    NBA: Preseason-Memphis Grizzlies at Houston Rockets

    It wasn’t the biggest headline from the day in basketball free agency–hell, it might not have been the fifth-biggest–but the Sixers did make a minor splash today in the midst of the Dwight Howard sweepstakes finally reaching a resolution. The Houston Rockets needed to make a little additional room on their books to give Dwight…

  7. NBA Fines Spencer Hawes for Playing in Unsanctioned Game

    Jul 3, 2013, 12:38 PM EDT

    Spencer Hawes is a rebel. Just look at that headband. You know he used to run roughshod over Mr. Collins, smoking cigarettes in the bathroom while the rest of the team was busting it at practice, ditching early to ride his hog until sunset. Now that the 76ers have no authority figure directly above Hawes,…

  8. Don’t Know What Jrue Got Til It’s Gone: Jrue Holiday’s Top Ten Games As a 76er

    Jul 1, 2013, 10:21 AM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Indiana Pacers

    I started writing for the 700 Level in April 2009, wanting a forum to discuss the Sixers’ ’09 stretch run and subsequent post-season appearance, and not knowing anyone else in non-internet life that cared all that much. The Sixers’ playoff run was brief, but exciting–they lost to the Magic in six games, but took an…

  9. Doug Collins Wanted to Sign Kwame Brown for Five Years, $30 Million

    Jun 30, 2013, 11:17 AM EDT

    kwame

    Sam Hinkie might be some kind of genius, but he’s not a miracle worker. The lone black mark on an otherwise earth-shattering week for the 76ers was Kwame Brown exercising his player option, so get ready for another season of 1.9 points/3.4 rebounds per game at $2.9 million. Honestly, you should probably just be happy…

    Now this is a story all about how A Wildcat’s life got flipped-turned upside down… Now that the drama of the NBA Draft has slowed, we can focus on a small little detail that may have gotten lost in the shuffle—fashion.  With a new draft class comes a new era in the NBA Style Wars,…

    He didn’t get drafted Thursday night, but he did say last week that “June 27 won’t be the end of the world no matter which way it goes.” Well, it’s June 28, and Khalif Wyatt will play for the Sixers’ summer league team in Orlando, a source confirmed Friday. He is also expected to play…

    Hat.Nerlens.pelicans

    Little known fact: every blog post on this website must be about Philadelphia. I once failed to mention Thaddeus Young in a post about who has the smoothest calves in the NBA (it’s Udonis Haslem) and Enrico banned me from the site for three months. I wasn’t even sure what he meant — was I…

  13. Jrue Holiday addresses Philadelphia and New Orleans fans on Facebook

    After a pre-draft media blackout and one hell of a shakeup on Thursday night, Sixers GM Sam Hinkie finally sat down to address the media a little after 1 a.m. on Friday. Hinkie prefaced by saying that he could not discuss certain specifics — like the one topic everyone wants to talk about, the trade…

  15. Sixers Reportedly Hire New Coach, Nearly Trade ET, Swap Second-Rounders Twice, What Else Can Possibly Happen Tonight?

    Jun 28, 2013, 12:11 AM EDT

    brett.brown

    It won’t be nearly the biggest headline for the Sixers for the night, but yes, Philly also exited draft night with a new head coach, with Spurs assistant coach Brett Brown reportedly being handed the reins for the Liberty Ballers. In addition to his work with San Antonio, Brown is also the coach of the…

  16. Nerlens and MCW, But No More Jrue: Some Thoughts on What It All Means for the Sixers

    Jun 27, 2013, 11:10 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    First of all, and this will certainly be far from the last gushing eulogy I write for his time on the Sixers, let me just say one more time for the record: I LOVE Jrue Holiday. He was, without a doubt, the best thing about watching the Sixers the last four years, from his days…

  17. Video: Let’s All Watch Nerlens Noel Get His Draft Night Haircut, Profess His Love of the Fresh Prince

    Hair.Nerlens

    Just days before the draft, NBA TV accompanied Nerlens Noel to a barbershop in New York to get his amazing flatop top tightened up for prime time. Where did he get the inspiration for such an impressive ‘do? “Me and one of my best friends growing up, we got [the look] together, we both loveed…

  18. Sixers Find Holiday Replacement at No. 11 in Syracuse’s Michael Carter-Williams

    Jun 27, 2013, 8:58 PM EDT

    carter-williams

    The Sixers kept the 11th overall pick in tonight’s NBA Draft — contrary to some earlier confusion that they may have traded it — and used it on Syracuse University’s Michael Carter-Williams. He’s a 6-foot-6-inch point guard who will step right in and fill the void left by Jrue Holiday, who was traded to New…

  19. Jrue Holiday for Nerlens Noel: The Rebuild Is Officially On

    Jun 27, 2013, 8:33 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Indiana Pacers

    Oh man. In a draft that saw a #1 pick absolutely nobody expected, the Sixers have still pulled off the shocker of the night by trading their young All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday to the New Orleans Pelicans for Nerlens Noel, the Kentucky power forward selected sixth in the draft. Noel, a defensive prospect, was…

  20. Reports: Sixers Trade Jrue Holiday for Nerlens Noel

    Jun 27, 2013, 8:27 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    Whoa. Talk about a splash. The Sixers have reportedly traded Jrue Holiday and their 42nd overall tonight for Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel and the Pelicans 1st round pick in 2014, according to Yahoo! Sports Adrian Wojnarowski. More coming…

  21. Sixers to Pick Three Times Tonight in Most Unsettled NBA Draft Ever

    Jun 27, 2013, 7:19 PM EDT

    DSCN0287

    #11, #35 and #41 for the Sixers at the NBA Draft tonight, expected to be one of the least predictable drafts in recent NBA history. Nobody knows for sure who’s going anywhere in the top ten, or if the teams currently in the top ten are the ones that are going to stay there, so…

  22. Something Important to Keep in Mind During the Sixers’ Draft Tomorrow

    Jun 26, 2013, 1:29 PM EDT

    NCAA Basketball: Indiana University-Cody Zeller Press Conference

    In ESPN draft guru Chad Ford’s latest (but probably not last) Mock Draft, he has the Sixers taking big men with all three of their picks: Indiana PF Cody Zeller at #11, Kansas C Jeff Withey at #35, and Illinois St PF Jackie Carmichael at #42. “The 76ers need size and athleticism in their frontcourt…

    That’s right, Oregon will lose three total scholarships over the next three years and Chip Kelly was hit with a show-cause penalty, which semi-bans him — but only kind of — from college football for the next 18 months. It’s serious stuff. Geoff Mosher has more on the sanctions here, and according to the Oregonian…

  24. Why Is Allen Iverson Talking about How He’s ‘Ready’ to Play Russian Roulette?

    Jun 25, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2013-06-25 at 1.49.42 PM

    I don’t know what’s going on with Allen Iverson. One minute, he’s broke. The next, he’s got plenty of money stashed away. Later, he’s kidnapped his own kids, except he didn’t kidnap his own kids. All this is sandwiched around a profile from the Washington Post that should have just about anyone concerned for the…

    slideshow-062413-sixers-bynum-uspresswire

    Boy, Monday was a wacky day for the Philadelphia 76ers, wasn’t it? Their CEO was maybe fired. Then he wasn’t. Then he was tweeting and comparing himself to Mark Twain. What a day. But Monday wouldn’t have been complete without an Andrew Bynum update, which we got via his agent who spoke with Dan Gelston…
