  1. Don’t Worry, Philly Fans: @SixersCEOAdam Is Still Tweet Tweet Tweeting Away

    Jun 25, 2013, 7:57 AM EDT

    Joshua Harris,  Adam Aron

    Howard Eskin first reported on Twitter Monday afternoon that Adam Aron was out as CEO of the Philadelphia 76ers. Then one or maybe two of the Philly.com sites had a source confirming it. CSN’s Dei Lynam had a source confirming it. Then the Sixers denied it. Then Adam Aron tweeted about it and all was…

  2. Mrs. Jrue Holiday – Lauren Cheney – to Represent Soon for The Stars and Stripes

    Jun 21, 2013, 10:13 AM EDT

    (Pardon my awful PhotoShop -- it's Friday)

    If you watched any of the United States women’s soccer team last night before the NBA Final, you likely saw Lauren Cheney playing a starring role for the stars and stripes in a 5-0 rout of South Korea. A game in which Abby Wambach became the all-time leading women’s scorer in the international game. In…

    There’s a decent chance that, at some point in your Internet-surfing life, you’ve probably pulled the little yellow peg man onto a Google map and taken a look at a 360-degree image of your street. How’d you like to do that with the Wells Fargo Center? A friend of ours inside the building gave us…

  4. The Evster Catches You Up on the NBA Finals

    Heat fans

    Look, I like Carlos Zambrano. I think he’s a very interesting fella and I thoroughly enjoyed watching him pummel those Gatorade coolers. I also like Zac MacMath. When I went to see the Union play Real Madrid last summer, I walked into the Linc right behind his entire family who were all wearing MacMath jerseys.…

  5. 76ers Propose Practice Facility at the Navy Yard

    navy-yard-AP

    Last year the Sixers opened administrative offices at the Philly Navy Yard. Now the organization wants to move the basketball team there. Philadelphia Business Journal reports the franchise has a proposal to build a brand new practice facility at the Yard, right down the street from the Wells Fargo Center. The 55,000-square-foot facility could be…

  6. Reviewing the Ten Biggest Questions for the Sixers Off-Season with Michael Levin

    Jun 19, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    NBA: Golden State Warriors at Philadelphia 76ers

    We’ve been spending the off-season counting down the ten biggest questions facing the Sixers as they transition from the Doug Collins era into a rather uncertain future. Now that we’re done the roll-out, we figured it was time to call on our old friend Michael Levin, of the excellent Sixers blog Liberty Ballers, and get…

  7. Allen Iverson Didn’t Kidnap His Children Who Are Now Back with Their Mother, TMZ Reports

    Jun 18, 2013, 10:44 AM EDT

    allen.iverson

    Former 76ers star Allen Iverson and his ex-wife Tawanna have had a most rocky relationship over the years. The pair have been in and out of court for a variety of reasons. There are certainly plenty of issues to be worked out between them, but according to a Georgia court last week, for as many…

  8. Why the Sixers Must Name Allen Iverson Head Coach

    Jun 17, 2013, 11:34 AM EDT

    Image (1) allen_iverson_ear.jpg for post 489102

    The Philadelphia 76ers have spent the past month conducting one of the most boring, uneventful, irrelevant coaching searches in the history of sports. Ever since the team announced the resignation of Doug Collins and the hiring of math nerd Sam Hinkie as general manager, we’ve seen nothing but candidates who are either retreads or assistants…

  9. Ten Biggest Questions for the Sixers’ Off-Season: #1. What About Andrew?

    Jun 14, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    NBA: Indiana Pacers at Philadelphia 76ers

    This guy. After holding the Sixers hostage for the entirety of the 2012-13 season–maybe his fault, probably not totally–Bynum will continue to have the team in his grasp until at least July 1st, when free agency begins and Sam Hinkie and company can figure out whether or not the Funny Looking Kid With the Big…

  10. Doug Collins and Herm Edwards Discuss Playing in Philly During the 80s

    Jun 12, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Mike and Mike - June 12, 2013

    While the 76ers still haven’t found their new head coach, Doug Collins isn’t having any trouble locating new gigs. He spent Wednesday morning as the guest host on ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike show, all four hours of it. Collins has always been an engaging speaker with plenty of broadcast experience, so I’m sure the…

  11. Here’s a Quick Clip of a 63-year-old Dr. J Dunking

    Dr.J.Dunk

    Our man AU gave you a teaser of the end of “The Doctor” movie that aired last night on NBA TV in which Julius Erving attempts to throw down a slam dunk at the young age of 63. Thanks to the power of mobile phone technology and all that jazz, we can now bring you…

  12. Video: Andre Iguodala Reads Mean Tweets About Him on Jimmy Kimmel, Kobe Too

    Jun 10, 2013, 12:02 PM EDT

    Kobe.Tweets

    Jimmy Kimmel has some of the better late night comedy bits these days. Among them is “Mean Tweets,” where famous people read sometimes mean, sometimes just bizarre tweets from random Twitter users. With the NBA Finals in full swing over the weekend, Kimmel had some of the biggest names in the league — Kobe Bryant,…

  13. Ten Biggest Questions for the Sixers’ Off-Season: #2. Who’s Coaching?

    Jun 7, 2013, 2:01 PM EDT

    george.karl

    Eleven. That’s how many NBA teams fired or let go of their coaches this off-season–a whopping six of whom even made the playoffs last year, if you can believe that. A handful of those teams have already filled their vacacines–Cleveland with Mike Brown, Sacramento with Mike Malone, Atlanta with Mike Budenholzer–but the majority still remain…

    Man, this rain is awful. When is this rain going to stopOMG CHECK OUT THIS GIF of Allen Iverson tossing an alley oop to Andre Iguodala.

  15. Go See “The Doctor”: Ten Cool Things About NBA TV’s Julius Erving Doc

    Jun 6, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

    dr.j.julius.erving

    I have my beefs with a lot of NBA TV’s original programming–they’re mostly pretty uncreative with their ideas, and they play way too much of the same crap over and over again–but their original full-length are becoming must-watches for any basketball fan. Last year’s Dream Team doc was an absolute revelation–seriously, if you haven’t seen…

  16. Report: Sixers to Change Up Road and Alternate Jersey Colors

    Jun 5, 2013, 4:46 PM EDT

    Evan Turner, Brook Lopez, Gerald Wallace, Arnett Moutrie

    An interesting scoop from the Philadelphia Business Journal today who was at an event with Sixers CEO Adam Aron and learned about some coming changes to the Sixers road and alternate uniform colors. Lyn Kremer explains the change: I walked away with a sports business scoop. And that is, according to Aron, the 76ers home…

  17. Ten Biggest Questions of the Sixers’ Off-Season: #3. Who Are We Gonna Draft?

    May 30, 2013, 11:02 AM EDT

    Steven.Adams

    Like most basketball fans who have firmly prioritized the pros over the college game, I really shouldn’t be pretending to have any idea about who the Sixers should be picking with the #11 pick in the upcoming draft. But it’s too big a moment in the franchise’s off-season to have absolutely no opinion about, so…

  18. Video: Sixers Owner Will Smith Reunites with DJ Jazzy Jeff and Carlton for Most Amazing Carlton Cam Ever

    May 25, 2013, 9:40 AM EDT

    Carlton.Cam.Will.Smith

    Will Smith has a partial ownership in the Philadelphia 76ers. Sometimes during home games at the Wells Fargo Center the team plays a “Carlton Cam” bit on the jumbotron based off of Smith’s hit TV series “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air.” It’s usually a pretty good in-between-time-outs distraction. [From the Archives: Will, Jada, and…

  19. Super Early Premature 2013 Draft Evaluation: The Sixers Will Take ______ at No. 11

    May 22, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    cody-zeller

    The Sixers had a very small chance of winning one of the top three picks last night and, of course, they didn’t. The No. 1 overall pick went to Nick Gilbert again (insert preferred conspiracy theory about the NBA still making The Decision up to Cleveland), and the Sixers stayed in their expected draft position…

  20. The Sixers Will Need More Luck Than They Deserve at the Lottery Tonight

    May 21, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    evan-turner-76ers

    Tonight will be a fateful night for a number of teams at the 2013 Draft Lottery in New York, as David Stern will dramatically unveil a series of envelopes containing logos from crappy teams until just three lucky franchises remain, who will get to pick from the cream of the crop from this year’s class…

  21. For What It’s Worth: Jrue Holiday Seemed to Really Like Andrew Bynum

    May 20, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    5-20-13-bynum-holiday-USA

    You can say it’s just Jrue being nice in case the Sixers decide to bring back the tall kid with the funny hair, but there’s some detail in these comments. And it’s surprising. As we all know, Andrew Bynum did not play a single second of basketball in a Sixers uniform. But according to the…

  22. Ten Biggest Questions for the Sixers Off-Season: #4. What the Hell Do We Do with Evan Turner?

    May 20, 2013, 9:23 AM EDT

    evan.turner

    After enduring three years of absolutely vexing basketball from their former #2 overall pick, the Philadelphia 76ers are about to reach decision time with Evan Turner. The Extraterrestrial’s rookie contract is in its final year next season, meaning that unless they ink him to an extension at some point before November, Turner will become a…

    The other day, I saw this dude walking down 16th Street in Center City. Clearly, this guy is the coolest person in the world. He’s rocking a turquoise Charlotte Hornets shirt with turquoise jeans and yep, that’s right, look closely, those are turquoise New Balances. Amazing. And if you look to his right, it’s really…

  24. Five Reasons to Like the Sixers Hire of Sam Hinkie

    May 17, 2013, 9:52 AM EDT

    slideshow-051413-sixers-hinkie-csn

    GM’s usually aren’t particularly sexy hires for basketball franchises–most casual NBA fans can’t name more than a handful of incumbent GMs across the league anyway, and new guys usually don’t have much of a resume to point to, unless they’ve already been fired elsewhere. Still, if any fanbase was going to be excited about a…

  25. TMZ: Cops Dismissed Rape Allegations from Woman Suing Nick Young

    Tuesday was a popular day for local athletes to be sued for assaulting a woman. Shady McCoy may or may not have partied too hard on a bus, but it was Nick Young who was being taken to court over an alleged date rape from 2011. Now, a report from TMZ is calling the accuser’s…
