The Sixers posted three of their new television commercials to YouTube earlier today featuring their new tagline, “Passionate. Intense. Proud.” One focuses on the team’s storied history — did you know they have the THIRD most wins in NBA history?!. Another focuses on Doug Collins and the third focuses on the Sixers’ “Youth.” But where’s Andre Iguodala and Elton Brand?

It’s not often the Sixers make headlines over at Mashable, but over the weekend, an interesting story on their interaction with a pair of fans was posted. If you’re on Twitter, you’ve probably seen the two accounts that popped up just after the team announced its mascot ballot, one for each of Phil E. Moose and B. Franklin Dogg. Well, they weren’t opened by the Sixers, and the team wanted the handles, according to Jerry Rizzo and Hunter Coleman, who created them. The deal brokered between the team and the two fans isn’t bad…

The 76ers starting center Spencer Hawes has re-signed with the team for ’11-’12.

The Sixers bring back a 23-year-old player just starting to hit his prime while Thad gets to stay in Philadelphia, as he desired, to play for a coach he greatly respects and believes in. And he won’t have to worry about his bank account either.

What can be said for Kapono’s time as a Sixer? No, really, that wasn’t rhetorical. Help us out here.

As of 6:00 today, it looked like a done deal that Chris Paul was going to be traded to the Lakers. In all likelihood, it was a done deal—New Orleans was gonna send CP3 to the Lakers for forwards Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum, then turn around and deal Gasol to the Houston Rockets in exchange for shooting guard Kevin Martin, power forward Luis Scola, backup point Goran Dragic and a 2012 first-round pick belonging to the New York Knicks. Twitter exploded with the news of the trade, leading to the inevitable amount of hand-wrigning about the rich getting richer when we just had a lockout partially caused by the desire for parity between the big and small-market teams.

@thekidetevan turner Philly, please tune into Comcast sportsnet tonight at 6 to see my dog make his tv debutDec 08 via Twitter for iPhoneFavoriteRetweetReply An anonymous source told T7L the dog’s announcement might have something to do with the Sixers’ ongoing search for a new mascot. More as we hear it…

First they announced they be cutting ticket prices across the board, then they announced they’d be killing off their old mascot only to potentially replace it with a moose (okay, forget that one), then they cut online ticketing fees, and now they’re making all mezzanine seats in the month of January $17.76.

The Sixers will open the season on the road in Portland, against LaMarcus Aldridge and them Trailblazers, on the day after Christmas. It’s one of many notable dates Sixers fans can now put on their calendars in semi-permanent marker. Others include:

With the new proposed CBA seemingly poised to pass with overwhelming numbers, it looks like this Friday will finally represent the beginning of what should be the most rapid-fire free agency period in NBA history. While the Sixers haven’t been predicted to be one of the big movers and/or shakers in the off-season brouhaha, there are still plenty of questions facing the team that will need to be answered post haste.

So what did we learn? What’s the final takeaway? It can’t really just be a pack of greedy owners taking it to the players and telling the common fan to “go screw,” can it?

The NBA lockout is finally over, probably.

Allen Iverson has been making the NBA lockout organized pickup game rounds as of late and The Mars Reel (via Slam) unearthed this clip of A.I. showing off his crossover on Jeff Teague. Sure, A.I. may not have that ridiculous lightning quickness that he was possessed, but we’re just happy to see a highlight of him show up on the Internet at all.

With the NBA lockout continuing to look grim, NBA players are still looking for a way to keep busy. Some, like former St. Joe’s Hawk Delonte West have applied for jobs at places like Home Depot, while others like former Sixer Willie Green have been hanging around Phil Martelli’s team as an intern.

No, not just the genre! The Sixers mascot of the same name has met his end. When we first heard this was likely and/or possible, we couldn’t have been happier. And it’s not like we’re in the minority or part of some vanguard revolution against the roided up rabbit here. I can’t think of any fans Hip Hop had.
And now, per an investigative report by Rich Hofmann, the Sixers have announced the retirement of Hip Hop, who has fallen in love, married (far be it from him to live in sin), and moved away to start a family.

Sure, you have to run 26.2 miles. And yes, there is currently no NBA season taking place. But you could still get a free ticket to a future Sixers game by running the Philadelphia Marathon on Sunday!
