So by now we’re all done popping champagne over the selection of USC power forward/center Nikola Vucevic at #16 in this year’s draft and we can come back down to earth a little and talk about what we actually have here. It seems like a lot of fans are pretty down on the guy, and I can’t really blame em. At Nikola’s first media interview as a Sixer, I couldn’t even think of anything good to ask him because the only questions I had for him were insulting ones. How do you think a slow, unathletic guy like you is gonna fit in on a team of run-and-gunners? Do you think you’ll be able to beat out Spencer Hawes for the team’s position of skilled-but-largely-ineffective white starting big man? Do the names “Samuel Dalembert” and “Shawn Bradley” mean anything to you?

Following in the footsteps of the Philadelphia Eagles less than two months ago, the Philadelphia 76ers have drafted a Temple Owl. With the 50th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Sixers have selected 6’9 power forward Lavoy Allen. This is the first Owl selected by the 76ers since Mark Karcher was chosen 48th overall in 2000.

But will Iguodala be dealt at all? That remains the biggest question. As one Sporting News article points out, the looming lockout is making a draft day deal for a guy like Dre ($) much more difficult.
Kate Fagan echoes those sentiments, also noting that the change in ownership could hinder an Iguodala deal as well. She goes as far as saying things this morning were “very quiet” around the team.

Thaddeus Young emerged as one of the key players in the Sixers playoff run this season. The serious Sixth Man of the Year candidate is holding Thaddeus Young 21 Hoops, a basketball camp for kids, next week in King of Prussia and chatted with us this afternoon about his future, the potential NBA lockout, Coach Collins, Allen Iverson, and which of his teammates is best/worst on Twitter.

For a number of reasons—the excellent post-season that just finished, the looming threat of a lockout, the relatively weak pool of talent to choose from—the 2011 NBA draft has been the least-buzzed-about draft the sport has seen in recent memory. Though there’s some intrigue due to the inevitable surge of trade rumors around this time of the year (none the least of which involving our own Andre Iguodala), the lack of any real marquee names and the involvement of a whole lot of unknown quantities in this draft has taken a lot of the sizzle out of it—and that’s for the teams drafting at the top. For our beloved Philadelphia 76ers, selecting this year with the 16th and 50th pick, things are even more muddled and less exciting.

Sunday night’s NBA Finals game was one of those sporting moments that didn’t involve anyone from your home team, yet as a fan of the game and all that is good about it, you found yourself absolutely thrilled for the team that won. Dirk Nowitzki did it. And he did it as a quiet champion…

First, the Miami Heat knock the Sixers out of the playoffs, then the Dallas Mavericks go out and print almost identical t-shirts that the Sixers used during their short-lived playoff run. As Twitter friend Aaron Horton pointed out, the Sixers got straight “swagger-jacked.” Now, to be fair to the Mavericks, while the image on the…

Negotiations are ongoing and a source with knowledge of the talks called a deal “imminent.” As the article points…

Amidst the reports last night that color-commentary announcer and former NBA great (well, former NBA very-good at least) Mark Jackson had been named the next coach of the Golden State Warriors, a second story floated out of Golden State, reported by the normally reliable Ric Bucher: That the Warriors were considering a trade with the…

The goal of being a diehard sports fan is to follow your team through thick and thin, good times and bad, in hopes of someday seeing them win a championship. That’s the pinnacle, which we’ve experienced exactly once with the 2008 Phillies. While the championship is the culmination of such a long build up, the…

The last we heard from Mo Speights, his teammates were clamoring for the Sixers’ big man to be freed. It appears as if Mo Speezy has gotten his wish, in a way. As his Twitter account shows us, Speights is free to tweet about whatever he wants and spend his offseason money at the mall…

Going into this year’s post-season, it seemed like chances were pretty good that the Heat’s predicted dominance over the NBA would not start for another year or two, if indeed it started at all. Health, chemistry and mental makeup issues dogged the team all regular season, and a number of high-profile late-game meltdowns—often in marquee…

A fantastic piece of video put together by the NYTimes on the evolution of the crossover. Of course, Allen Iverson is featured prominently, talking about how he crossed up MJ in his rookie season, how he learned the crossover, and who has the best crossover ever.
