The Sixers ran into the dynamic duo of Tony Parker and Violet Palmer on Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. It’s tougher to say which of the two played a more pivotal role in the Spurs 100-90 victory over the Sixers.

The Sixers have performed brilliantly over this tough seven-game stretch, but still have tough’ns to go against the Spurs and Clippers.

You people are tuning in and watching this young exciting Sixers team.

The 2011-2012 Sixers: fun for people of all ages. First it was Old Man Knees giving it to Kobe Bryant and now we bring you the awesome dancing Sixers kid doing his best Dougie for Doug Collins and the boys. This little dude is a quasi regular at the Sixers games over the past few seasons, sitting in the area behind the basket now partially reserved for the revolutionaries. Big Daddy (aka James Brister Jr.) may get the most crowd reaction, but little man has the best moves. [video below]

God bless the local news. This explains everything. A cheesesteak is delicious and revitalizing at first, but once you finish the final fourth of it, your legs are tired and you’re dragging.

The Wells Fargo Center was alive last night and the Sixers faithful were treated to one of the most exciting wins of the season thanks in large part to Lou Williams.
Feb 7, 2012, 2:46 AM EDT
Kobe surpassed his former teammate, Shaq, to move into the fifth spot on the NBA’s All-Time scoring leaders list. Once he passed Shaq midway through the second quarter, Kobe went ice cold, hitting only one other field goal the rest of the game. It was, however, a fricking sick bucket, reminiscent of a certain Dr.’s up-and-under reverse layup against a certain L.A. team.

With the Lakers leading 88-86 with just less than three minutes to play, Kobe Bryant was whistled for an offensive foul. Mr. Bearded Kneeling Man made sure Kobe knows which end of the court he’s supposed to head to, and Lou Williams would take things over from there. [video below]

What a finish from Lou Williams! LouWill was going OFF in the fourth quarter, scoring 7-straight points at one point with less than 3 minutes to play and propelling the Sixers past the Lakers.
Feb 6, 2012, 4:43 PM EDT
In recent years, fans would fill up the arena when Kobe came to town to see one of the best to ever play the game. In 2012, 76ers fans are coming in droves to watch one of the hottest teams in the NBA give every single ball club that comes into their house an absolute run for their money.

But the best moment came on Friday night at the packed house in South Philly. The fans were reaaaally getting annoyed with LBJ’s antics, whining after every single frickin’ play, so when Andre Iguodala took the ball coast-to-coast and slammed home one of the most authoritative dunks of the season, it was pure pandemonium.

The Philadelphia 76ers won handily in Atlanta last night, but does that erase the sting from their Friday home loss to Miami?

The Philadelphia 76ers have a chance to vanquish elite Eastern teams in consecutive nights with a Friday match against the Chicago Bulls.
Feb 2, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT
Andre Iguodala made Kyle Korver look like an NBA basketball player with concrete in his sneakers last night. How bout these highlights.

We had dinner with Takeru Kobayashi, the greatest eater in the world, at one of my favorite Philly restaurants. He talks Wing Bowl, how he trains, and how he’s a foodie at heart.

After last night’s big win over the class of the East, the Chicago Bulls, the Sixers aren’t just hearing the praise from the locals. The national media seems to have been waiting for Doug Collins squad to beat somebody of significance before raining praise down upon them, but now it’s coming.
Feb 1, 2012, 11:00 PM EDT
The Philadelphia 76ers finally get their Statement Win in a 98-82 victory over the Chicago Bulls.
Feb 1, 2012, 6:04 PM EDT
The Philadelphia 76ers go for their biggest win of the year at home against the East-leading Chicago Bulls.

The beginning of the end of Philadelphia being a two newspaper town seems to be here. We’re told guild members were informed via email about management’s plans to align the Daily News’ and Inquirer’s sports staffs along with the Philly.com staff to work together to better compete with outsiders as opposed to each other.

One could probably say that aside from Michael Jordan, no basketball player has been more connected to the hip-hop genre than Allen Iverson. So it’s no surprise to see that an up-and-coming rapper from East Memphis, Tennessee wrote an entire song about the once beloved and currently struggling Philadelphia 76ers legend. [listen to the mp3 below]

Allen Iverson has been ordered to fork over boatloads of money that he owes to a jeweler. The Sporting News has the details, “A Georgia judge commandeered the bank account of former NBA star Allen Iverson in order to pay out a substantial debt for an unpaid jewelry bill in a summary judgement on Monday”

We didn’t want you to be the only person in line for coffee this morning who hadn’t seen Blake Griffin’s monster posterization of Kendrick Perkins.

The Sixers nearly let an 18-point lead slip away late, but still secured the win against the free-falling Orlando Magic.
