Yes, there were no games played in Philly sports yesterday or today. So we’re left with Evan Turner and JVR discussing manicures and pedicures on Twitter. On Saturday, Reemer was supporting soccer and today he’s getting behind male grooming. Oh how we long for the day of playoff beards. JVR tweeted this @ Evan Turner…

When rumors started swirling about the Sixers being sold to some billionaire who runs one of the world’s largest private equity firms, nobody really knew much about the guy. Was he trying to revive a struggling asset? Is he a corporate raider? Or is he the next Mark Cuban?

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?

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.
