    Dec 21, 2011, 10:36 AM EDT

    Legendary competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi will compete in 94 WIP’s Wing Bowl 20 next month at the Wells Fargo Center. It will be the first time he has ever competed in Philadelphia’s infamous wing eating competition. He hopes to set a world record.

  2. Jrue Holiday: Gatekeeper of the Big Macs

    Dec 20, 2011, 10:27 PM EDT

    Jrue’s play down the wire also created one of the more humorous moments of the evening, when he found himself on the free throw line with just seconds to play. The Sixers point total stood at 99 and Jrue had one shot left to push the total into triple digits which would give every fan in attendance a free Big Mac.

  5. Video: In Case You Ever Wanted to Watch Andre Iguodala Dunk While Wearing a Stylish Suit

    Dec 20, 2011, 1:22 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala is a fantastic dunker. His throwdowns are often the stuff that can make watching an otherwise mediocre Sixers’ game worthwhile for the casual hoops fan. But never once did I think to myself, “Man, it would be really awesome to watch Andre Iguodala and other superior dunkers such as Blake Griffin throw down some nasty dunks while wearing really fancy menswear.” Alas, GQ allows us to do that in the below video.

    Dec 17, 2011, 12:56 AM EDT

    Sure, it was against the Washington Wizards, but damn if the Sixers didn’t look real sharp in their first real action as a team of the season. Doug Collins’ squad clearly benefited from having played an entire season together in the past while the Wiz… well, the best thing about the Wizards on Friday night was their fresh new uniforms.

  15. Sixers Mascot Tweeters Trade Handles for Season Tickets

    Dec 12, 2011, 8:07 AM EDT

    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…

  19. Can They Do That? NBA Vetoes Megabuster Three-Team Deal Sending Chris Paul to Lakers

    Dec 8, 2011, 10:05 PM EDT

    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.

    Dec 6, 2011, 11:14 AM EDT

    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.
