  1. Sam Hinkie even drove Evan Turner to airport after trade

    Not much new on the Sixers front this weekend. Not only did they lose a pair of games at the Wells Fargo Center but now even their sneakers are falling apart. Their losing streak now sits at 20 games which ties the franchise record. Nothing funny about that. One funny anecdote from over the weekend…

  2. Sir Charles nearly falls asleep on TV and he wasn’t even watching the Sixers

    Mar 14, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT


    (Or playing on the Sixers) More proof that Charles Barkley is just like the rest of us. There was a pretty funny segment on TNT’s Inside the NBA on Thursday night when the cameras caught Chuck’s eyelids getting real heavy. He kept it together and didn’t actually fall asleep, but that certainly didn’t stop Kenny,…

    ben ice cream

    When I was around 10 years old, I bumped into former Sixer and all-around terrible basketball player, Bob Thornton, at the Acme on City Line Ave. No seriously, I walked right into him. Like, right into his leg. I was looking for Skittles and he was waiting in line to buy ice cream and a…

  4. Remembering the 1995-’96 Philadelphia 76ers (The Last Sixers Team as Tanktastic as This One)

    Mar 13, 2014, 12:18 PM EDT


    Six months ago, in the midst of the worst Phillies season in over a decade, I decided to take a look at the 2000 Phillies, the last bottom-dwelling Phils squad, for a little perspective. In the midst of a Sixers season that has the chance to make the ’13 Phils look like the ’04 St.…

  5. The Sixers lost obviously but DAMN if Tony Wroten didn’t break some ankles [VIDEO]

    Mar 13, 2014, 7:55 AM EDT


    The Sixers put another notch in the loss column on Wednesday night when they fell 115-98 to the Kings. That makes it, let me check… one, two, three, four… eighteen straight losses for your 76ers. They can tie the franchise longest losing streak of 20 on Saturday night against Memphis if they fall on Friday…

  6. Nerlens Noel played 4-on-4 today and can jump way quicker than you

    Mar 11, 2014, 4:41 PM EDT


    We’ve heard about Nerlens Noel working on his shot with Brett Brown at practice and we’ve read the mysterious 4-4-14 tweet, but today we got some actual reporting on the Sixers rookie participating in a four-on-four practice. All signs point to impressive. Dei Lynam has the full story which includes a report on Noel’s game…

  7. The Sixers lost obviously but watch MCW achieve triple double with just 2.2 seconds left

    Mar 10, 2014, 11:44 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    The sun rises in the east and sets in the west and the Sixers lost on Monday night. The notable takeaway from the ugly evening up at the Garden was MCW’s triple double. Notable for the fact that it was just the second of his young NBA career but also for the fashion in which…

  8. What happens on April 4th, 2014?

    Mar 10, 2014, 3:32 PM EDT


    On Sunday, Sixers rookie Nerlens Noel tweeted a single date: 4-4-14. Twitter, immediately, was abuzz. What could it mean? Is Noel — who hasn’t yet suited up for an NBA game because of the torn ACL he suffered last year — plotting to finally play that day? The Sixers take on his hometown Boston Celtics…

  9. Brett Brown: ‘I think there is a win in the group, maybe a few.’

    Mar 7, 2014, 1:52 PM EDT

    Brett Brown

    Brett Brown says, funny enough, that he really loves the job of coaching the Sixers. Despite having ridiculously low odds of losing the remainder of their games this season (3/1) Brown doesn’t let his attitude sink as low as his team’s record. Brown was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show on Friday morning and…

  10. Why the upcoming free agency bonanza of Carmelo Anthony and others is good news for the Sixers

    Mar 6, 2014, 5:12 PM EDT

    NBA: New York Knicks at Minnesota Timberwolves

    This upcoming offseason has the potential to be the most pivotal period the NBA has seen in four years, dating back to summer 2010, when the most high-profile free agent class in the sport’s history–headlined, of course, by LeBron James–hit the open market. Stars changed teams, franchises changed fortune, and before the summer was over,…

  11. Allen Iverson in latest Reebok spot: ‘We talkin bout pants?!’

    Mar 4, 2014, 10:04 PM EDT


    With towering figures like Shaquille O’Neal and Shawn Kemp getting the bulk of the screen time, little man Allen Iverson steals the show — even in the barber shop. Above is the latest from Reebok Classic. The YouTube description describes it as such: Watch Episode 3 of “The Retro Shop” starring Shaq, Kemp, and comedian,…

  12. Sixers owner Josh Harris collected ~$400 million in 2013 or roughly another Sixers franchise

    Mar 4, 2014, 9:18 AM EDT

    Joshua Harris

    The Wall Street Journal reported on the banner year private equity firms had in 2013. Right near the top of the list of earners is Sixers’ owner Josh Harris and his Apollo Global Management teammates. Now, Harris didn’t pull in the $546.3 million that Apollo’s CEO Leon Black took home in dividends and investment proceeds…

  13. Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon ate Pica’s pizza on the Tonight Show [VIDEO]

    Mar 4, 2014, 8:32 AM EDT


    Kids who grew up in Delaware County are used to their place of origin being the brunt of many a jokes. And for the most part Delco earns it. That said, there are a few treasures nobody can take from us. Former Sixers GM Ed Stefanski and longtime L.A. Angels Manager Mike Scioscia as well…

  14. Will the Sixers win another game this season?

    Mar 3, 2014, 4:17 PM EDT

    NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Philadelphia 76ers

    The Sixers looked like they might actually pull out a W–their first in their last 14 tries–last night as visitors in Orlando, going into halftime with a three-point lead and generally looking like decent competition for an Orlando squad down two starters in Jameer Nelson and Arron Afflalo. But Michael Carter-Williams went cold, the bench…

  15. Details for Allen Iverson’s number retirement ceremony on Saturday

    Feb 28, 2014, 1:20 PM EDT

    Image (1) 30iverson583.jpg for post 486864

    All those top-10 Allen Iverson lists are circulating the internet for a reason. The Philadelphia 76ers are set to raise The Answer’s No. 3 into the Wells Fargo Center rafters in a halftime ceremony on Saturday night. Limited tickets are surprisingly still available, which says something about just how awful this team really is. If…

  16. Meta-Blogging: ZooWithRoy and The Evster dive yet deeper into Iranian basketball, focus on sideburns

    Feb 28, 2014, 12:00 PM EDT


    ZWR: As I do every Friday morning, I sat down with a cup of coffee and immediately pulled up The700Level to check out The Evster’s latest jawn. Seriously, I never work on Friday mornings. This post is evidence of that, because I’m doing it right after reading the column. Not working. Suck it, the man.…

  17. The Evster checks in on that Iranian rebounder dude the Sixers drafted

    Feb 28, 2014, 8:15 AM EDT

    arsalan reverse wicker

    On Wednesday night, the Sixers trotted out a starting lineup that consisted of Michael Carter-Williams, Thaddeus Young, one of those blue velcro shoes that they give to old people recovering from foot surgery, a child in an overcoat, and an abandoned building from 24th and Lehigh. Not exactly the best NBA team to ever take…

  18. Looks like they weren’t kidding about that Byron Mullens, Pop-a-Shot thing; He’s a chucker, alright

    Feb 27, 2014, 2:00 PM EDT


    Who gets up 11 shots in 17 minutes? Who throws a shoe, honestly? Take that back, Byron Mullens would probably shoot his own shoe if he couldn’t get his hands on the ball. Mullens’ stat line from his second game as a 76er appears above. His shot and shot distribution charts from this season appear…

  19. #TBT: A portrait of the sports blogger as a little kid

    Feb 27, 2014, 10:39 AM EDT


    Most people remember the 1985-86 Sixers for names like Dr. J, Moses Malone, Sir Charles Barkley, Andrew Toney, Mo Cheeks, Bobby Jones, etc. The team was still stacked with incredible talent. But not many remember the rookie sensation that was Terry Catledge. I do. Why do I? Because it wasn’t Moses or Mo or even…

  20. Evan Turner solid in Pacers debut, Indy blows out Lakers

    Feb 26, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    NBA: Los Angeles Lakers at Indiana Pacers

    Don’t worry, we’re not gonna be recapping Pacers games as if they were Sixers games from here on just because we’re jealous that they actually have something to play for beyond lottery balls. But if you’re anything like us here at the Level, you’re pretty much dying of curiosity to see how the whole ET-to-Pacers…

  21. Photos: The 5 best pictures of the guy who fell asleep at the Sixers game last night

    Feb 25, 2014, 12:15 PM EDT


    The Sixers are reinventing what we thought we knew about the art of tanking, losing to the Milwaukee Bucks, 130-110. They lost by 20 … to the Bucks … at home … so this guy could become an overnight celebrity. It is of regret that the big dude who holds up his shirt and jiggles was not…

  22. Sixers blown out by NBA’s worst, but Thaddeus Young is a beautiful human being

    Feb 24, 2014, 10:03 PM EDT

    NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Philadelphia 76ers

    11 straight losses, ten straight at home, and this was by far the worst of them. A 43-point second-quarter for the Milwaukee Bucks–yes, those Milwaukee Bucks, proud owners of a now-11-45 record, the lone bastards remaining that the Phiadelphia 76ers haven’t been able to outtank–had Malik Rose crying in his coffee, and made it an…

  23. Don’t even act like you’re not getting misty at this Evan Turner goodbye Instagram

    Feb 22, 2014, 1:59 PM EDT


    OK, maybe you wanted Evan Turner gone. Maybe you were getting sick of the little things he did and didn’t do, maybe you were anxious for the team to move on, maybe you felt like a parting of ways was long overdue. You wouldn’t have been particularly misguided in that desire, and you certainly wouldn’t…

  24. The 2013-14 76ers: So what’s left, exactly?

    Feb 21, 2014, 1:03 PM EDT


    There are 27 games remaining in the Philadelphia 76ers’ 2013-14 season, and by all estimations, it should be a long 27. Coming off a nine-game losing streak, the Sixers seem pretty unlikely to turn that around anytime soon, now missing two starters in Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes and a third rotation guy in Lavoy…
