    Feb 5, 2014, 3:12 PM EDT


    CBS released a trailer for a new documentary that will air in March titled “Summer Dreams” which, according to TV Guide, “will spotlight 2013 first-round draft picks Michael Carter-Williams of thePhiladelphia 76ers and the Dallas Mavericks‘ Shane Larkin, son of baseball Hall of Famer Barry Larkin, as they make their way through the grueling 10-day, 61-game summer…

    .@NBCPhiladelphia #nbc10ice Ice at the Wells Fargo center by @CSNPhilly — Tom Finer (@tomfiner) February 5, 2014 It is not a pleasant day in Philadelphia. It’s cold. It’s wet. And now it’s getting icy. I suppose you could say it’s a perfect day for the Sixers to take on the Boston Celtics as…

  3. Sixers forward Arnett Moultrie ‘sick of excuses’ for not playing

    Feb 4, 2014, 3:37 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Denver Nuggets

    Arnett Moultrie hasn’t played for the Philadelphia 76ers since last season. Offseason ankle surgery forced the 6’11” power forward to miss training camp, and he has yet to suit up in a game for the Sixers since returning to practice on December 31. Conditioning undoubtedly had a lot to do with Moultrie not stepping right…

  4. Evan Turner, 76ers trade rumors heating up

    Feb 4, 2014, 1:11 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Boston Celtics

    Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown admitted on Monday that “It’s been an incredible surprise to have our team intact this late in the year.” From the sound of things, he might not want to get used to that feeling. The NBA trade deadline is right around the corner, and the Sixers figure to be…

  6. Dr. J makes cameo in Chrysler Super Bowl commercial featuring Bob Dylan praising ‘originals’

    Feb 2, 2014, 9:14 PM EDT


    What do Dr. J and Bob Dylan have in common? Aside from both being total badass trail blazers? They were both in a commercial for a Chrysler that aired during the second half of the 2014 Super Bowl. The spot praised America as a country of originals and centered around Dylan with Julius Erving being…

  7. If every game was decided by five points or less, the Sixers would be finals contenders

    Jan 30, 2014, 12:29 PM EDT


    Here’s the two stats that tell you just about everything you need to know about this Philadelphia 76ers season. 1. The Sixers’ record in games decided by five points or fewer: 8-2 2. The Sixers’ record in games decided by six points or more: 7-29 Going into this season I hoped for one thing above…

  8. David Stern starts Letterman Top 10 List with a Dr. J joke

    Jan 30, 2014, 11:26 AM EDT


    David Stern is leaving the post he’s held at the top of the NBA for 30 years but he’s going to have some fun before he makes it official. Last night he stopped by the Late Show with David Letterman to read a Top Ten List about some of the many, many things he’s learned…

  9. Evan Turner hits buzzer-beater to beat Celtics in game nobody really wanted to win

    Jan 29, 2014, 10:49 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Boston Celtics

    Evan Turner, God bless him. Don’t talk to him about shot selection. Don’t talk to him about All-Star status. And definitely don’t talk to him about tanking. Say what you will about our oft-maligned small forward–and I’ve used dozens of thousands of words over the last four seasons saying just about everything about the man–but…

  10. Classic rivalry of two storied teams picks up tonight as Sixers head to Boston

    Jan 29, 2014, 1:52 PM EDT

    Image (2) larry-bird1.jpg for post 479503

    The timeless rivalry between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Boston Celtics is renewed this evening in a matchup for the ages. Well, not exactly. The Sixers are 14-31 on the season while the Celtics are 15-32. But that doesn’t take anything away from the rivalry, says head coach Brett Brown. Right. From Sixers’ television reporter…

  11. The 76ers have lost three games in a row at home, so let’s talk draft targets

    Jan 28, 2014, 2:36 PM EDT

    NCAA Basketball: Battle4Atlantis-Kansas vs Wake Forest

    Evan Turner can talk about the Philadelphia 76ers trying to sneak into the playoffs all he wants, but even in the deplorable Eastern Conference, the Sixers are starting to slip well out of any kind of postseason contention. Their 14-31 record leaves them 4.5 games behind the Bobcats for the eighth seed in the playoffs,…

  12. This is what an almost insane posterization dunk over Evan Turner looks like

    Jan 28, 2014, 11:32 AM EDT

    usaevanturner_1 (1)

    Gerald Green’s dunking prowess is well documented. He put some of that panache on display last night in the Suns relatively easy win over the Sixers in South Philadelphia. Green was red hot all night. He finished 10-12 from the floor and led all scorers with 30 points. Even his misses were wildly entertaining. Case…

  13. Sixers lose admirably to Midwest demigod and his mildly impressive apostles

    Jan 25, 2014, 10:15 PM EDT

    NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Philadelphia 76ers

    No shame in this one. The Philadelphia 76ers scrapped their little hearts out tonight, and lost to a team that will probably be kicking themselves for actually having to try all the way through the fourth quarter. Kevin Durant added another line item to his MVP resume (though one that probably wouldn’t even make the…

  14. Sixers lose, but Thaddeus Young gives us a couple highlights for our troubles

    Jan 24, 2014, 9:46 PM EDT

    NBA: Toronto Raptors at Philadelphia 76ers

    Whatever positive momentum the Philadelphia 76ers carried over from their win in New York on Wednesday fizzled by the second half of tonight’s home game against the Atlantic-leading Toronto Raptors, whose backcourt of All-Star hopefuls basically beat the Sixers on their lonesome tonight. The Sixers played the Raptors tough for two-and-a-half quarters, but the offense…

  15. The Evster breaks down the 1989-90 Sixers team photo

    dawk good

    This April marks the 24th anniversary of the 1989-90 Atlantic Division Champion Thump ‘n Bump Philadelphia 76ers. Now obviously, a 25th anniversary celebration would make more sense, but after googling “Da Golden Child Kurt Nimphius” and finding the team photo above, I couldn’t wait another year to write this article. Forget about Grantland’s oral histories…

  16. Video: Do not attempt to posterize the Sixers, it will not end well

    Jan 23, 2014, 10:33 AM EDT


    The Sixers took down the Knicks up in New York by a final of 110-106 on Wednesday night (much more on the win and Evan Turner’s impressive night here) and Andrea Bargnani thought he was going to treat Thad Young and Elliot Williams like props in the All-Star weekend dunk contest. Not so fast. The…

  17. Just when you thought you were out: Evan Turner has career game in Knicks win

    Jan 23, 2014, 10:29 AM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at New York Knicks

    After an incredibly impressive start to the season, in which Evan Turner seemed like a completely different player–a smart, efficient, hard-working scorer who knew his limitations and knew how to succeed in spite of them–Evan proved not long thereafter that he was, in fact, still Evan Turner. He still takes questionable shots, he still tries…

  18. Brett Brown on Grantland: He loves that Philly is a cold and angry city

    Jan 22, 2014, 2:45 PM EDT


    The Sixers haven’t been putting a ton of ‘W’s in the win column as of late, but head coach Brett Brown has been winning fans over with his fantastic interviews. Last week it was a video chat he did with Henry Abbott of TrueHoop and today it’s a nice Q&A he had with Grantland’s Zach…

    Hawks Knicks Basketball

    With the Sixers up in New York this evening to take on the Knicks, the timing of this rather interesting article in the Times about how the staff at Madison Square Garden handles all of the celebrity seating requests is great. They use a super spreadsheet with custom algorithms. The piece tells of Suite 200…

  20. Quotable: ‘Kobe who?’ Swaggy P currently in full effect in Hollywood

    Jan 21, 2014, 10:19 AM EDT


    Nick Young never played on a particularly meaningful team in Philadelphia. But in his short time here, he did find a way to the hearts of Sixers’ fans in a way that only Swaggy P could — by shooting, shooting, and then shooting some more. And then probably shooting even more while falling out of…

  21. What the hell has been going on with Sixers garbage time lately?

    Jan 20, 2014, 5:38 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Washington Wizards

    With their 107-99 loss to the Wizards in Monday’s MLK matinee–not really as close as that final score makes it look–the Philadelphai 76ers have lost three straight, and seven of eight. This is, of course, not particularly surprising: Despite winning four straight on the road prior to their recent cold spell, just about everything pointed…

  22. Brett Brown uses Skype, basically summarizes entire Sixers’ rebuilding philosophy perfectly

    Jan 17, 2014, 2:41 PM EDT

    I watched this TrueHoop video where ESPN’s Henry Abbott talks with Philadelphia 76ers Head Coach Brett Brown and the first thing that jumps out at me is that Brett Brown uses Skype. This just seems fascinating to me. Imagine a thoughtful Skype interview with another Philly coach like Charlie Manuel or Craig Berube. (Update: apparently…

  23. LeBron James says Sixers have a “good one” in Michael Carter-Williams

    Jan 17, 2014, 1:48 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams, LeBron James

    Michael Carter-Williams’ NBA debut was one Sixers fans won’t soon forget. LeBron James and the Miami Heat probably haven’t forgotten it either. MCW dazzled us in his first game as a Sixer with 22 points, 12 assists and 9 steals. And he did it while leading his team to victory over the defending NBA champs…

  24. Sixer Big Man Update: Dedmon in, Moultrie on his way, Noel on the horizon

    Jan 16, 2014, 1:35 PM EDT


    It’s been a situation in flux behind Thaddeus Young and Spencer Hawes in the Sixers’ frontcourt rotation this season. Royce White, Gani Lawal, Daniel Orton have all come and gone, Lavoy Allen has shuttled in and out of the lineup with various maladies, and the only guy who seems to be able to nail down…

  25. Thad on his game winning three: ‘thought I was going to make it before I even got the ball’

    Jan 16, 2014, 10:44 AM EDT

    Thaddeus Young , Kemba Walker

    Beating the Charlotte Bobcats on your home court may not be the most exciting thing in the world but Thad Young hitting a three pointer in the final seconds to help secure the win certainly provided some great drama. Thad got a great look and took the shot with confidence and nailed it. His quotes…
