There’s a Philadelphia sports tie in to that Mitt Romney 47% video that’s sure to be the highlight of tonight’s Daily Show with Jon Stewart.
According to Philly.com and Mother Jones, the site that released the video, the fundraiser Mitt Romney was at when the video was made was hosted by Financier and generally wild party guy Marc Leder, who also happens to be a part of the 76ers ownership group.

Adam Aron and the Sixers like mixing things up, that’s for sure.
In addition to playing the New Jersey Nets at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, the Sixers will also honor their roots by playing a preseason game against the New York Knicks at the Carrier Dome in Syracuse, New York.

Friend of the Level and Sixers blogger Michael Levin takes a detailed look at what needs to happen around the NBA this season for Jrue Holiday to be named the 2012-13 NBA MVP. Why would he do that you ask? Because some people are actually throwing the Damaja’s name out there as a dark horse candidate for the honor.

Dei Lynam caught up with Sixers Head Coach Doug Collins at the Coaches vs. Cancer golf outing the other day and talked a bit more about the upcoming season. Doug, who may have had a hand in molding Michael Jordan’s style choices, is excited to prepare for a different kind of camp with so many new faces this season.
One of the more interesting questions Dei asks Doug is how he plans to tinker with his rotation this season and Collins admits he’s not sure how all of the pieces will fit together.

Except in reverse.
Or maybe Moses Malone is the Fresh Prince and Bynum is Carlton?
I’m not sure what this Dime Mag piece is trying to say exactly, but they like Andrew Bynum on the Sixers a whole lot and they equate his move across the country to that of Will Smith’s on a television show from the 90s.

It’s kind of a flawed list considering where one of Philadelphia’s other teams sits in the pack, but your 76ers are earning some national love. So they’ve got that going for them, which is nice.

We’ll never tire of hearing about the post-NBA life/career of former Sixers legend Allen Iverson. Whether it’s his exploits in Turkey or his failed attempts to get back into the League, we still love hearing about what A.I. is up to at the moment.
According to basketball blog Rush’N Hoops, Iverson is finally set to play some ball in China.

You may recall after Allen showed up big time against the Celtics this postseason that Truehoop’s Henry Abbott extended an apology to Lavoy. Instead of accepting the apology, Lavoy actually thanked Abbott for putting him at the nice even mark of No. 500 at the end of the list because he could use that as motivation.
Well, ESPN isn’t putting him last this season. Lavoy jumped a couple of hundred spots to come in at No. 232!

Here’s an amazing video of Sir Charles Barkley singing Boyz II Men’s “End of the Road” at what appears to be some sort of karaoke bar only to have the Boyz from Philly themselves come up to help him out a bit. It’s pretty awesome.

Evan Turner was in Atlantic City on Tuesday as the Sixers unveiled their plans to play the Brooklyn Nets at Boardwalk Hall during the preseason. Dei Lynam caught up with ET to get his first on-camera thoughts about the big Andrew Bynum-Andre Iguodala trade that was recently pulled off by Rod Thorn. Evan seems excited about playing with one of the best centers in the game, and with the departure of his pal Iguodala, the Kid ET will likely see more minutes. And Evan says he’ll now hold the crown for best swag on the team. [video below]

After reports circulated that this news was coming, the Sixers officially announced Tuesday afternoon that their preseason game with the Brooklyn Nets on Oct. 13 will take place inside Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City.

Here’s a video of Skip Bayless and Stephen A. Smith arguing about that quote from last week about Doc Rivers saying that the only low-post guy he really fears is Andrew Bynum.
Aug 20, 2012, 2:08 AM EDT
It’s a long NBA off-season, and while Andrew Bynum is busy running up and down the Rocky steps like he’s always dreamed, the other Philadelphia 76ers only know one way of coping with the spare time and restlessness: Endless tweeting. Most notably, Evan Turner, Twitter team MVP for each of his two seasons as a Liberty Baller (with no threat to the throne coming anytime soon), takes to social media to share his thoughts on life, love, the pursuit of happiness and J. Cole song lyrics.

This week, I’ll be saying a proper goodbye to some longtime Sixers players that won’t be suiting up in the Red, White and Blue next season. Today: Andre Iguodala, traded to Denver as part of the deal for Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson.

The whole scene at the National Constitution Center was a bit surreal on Wednesday afternoon. Andrew Bynum literally met Sixers Head Coach Doug Collins for the first time earlier in the morning. Just hours later, surrounded by screaming Sixers fans, Bynum was actually asked — by a reporter, no less — if he could envision what a parade down Broad Street would be like.
Aug 15, 2012, 2:18 PM EDT
By “this,” Andrew Bynum means “here,” as in “Philly,” with “the Sixers.”

Diamonds make pressure. Andrew Bynum. America.

Adam Aron and the Sixers are so excited about bringing Andrew Bynum to Philadelphia they wanted to share his welcome press conference with all of you. The team will welcome both Bynum and Jason Richardson to town on Wednesday at a public press conference held at the National Constitution Center in Old City.

This week, I’ll be saying a proper goodbye to some longtime Sixers players that won’t be suiting up in the Red, White and Blue next season. First up: Power forward Elton “Sugar Bear” Brand, amnestied by management and now signed with the Dallas Mavericks.

Sixers beat writer for the Inquirer, John Mitchell, authored a blog post today saying that a source told him Andrew Bynum will head to Germany in September to have a “non-invasive knee procedure.” It’s unclear if his source was Andrew Bynum, but the former Laker told reporters the same thing back in May, according to this ESPN story. It’s the same procedure his old teammate, Kobe Bryant, received and spoke highly of:
