  3. Did the Dallas Mavericks Rip Off The Sixers Rallying Cry?

    Jun 10, 2011, 11:58 AM EDT

    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.

    Jun 7, 2011, 11:14 AM EDT

  8. Monta Ellis a Good Trade Return for Andre Iguodala?

    Jun 7, 2011, 10:11 AM EDT

    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…

    Jun 6, 2011, 3:31 PM EDT

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…

  12. NBA Finals Preview: Does the Heat Dynasty Begin This June?

    May 31, 2011, 12:52 PM EDT

    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…

    With all the hype surrounding the NHL’s Winter Classic every year, particularly today as it’s been confirmed the Flyers will host the 2012 outdoor game at Citizens Bank Park, why not have an annual outdoor game for the NBA?

  17. Evan Turner Gets TRL Contemplative in the Off-Season

    May 11, 2011, 8:46 AM EDT

    Evan Turner, like most of the players on our beloved Sixers these past few years, is not going to be mistaken by anyone for a tough guy. Not that he’s not tough—hey, you try coming back from a broken back after only a couple weeks when you’re in college—but his rep in this world as…

    May 10, 2011, 4:37 PM EDT

    We noted this morning that Andre Iguodala was honored with an NBA All-Defensive Second Team pick.

  20. Charles Barkley Breaks Golf Club On First Tee of Pro-Am

    May 5, 2011, 8:25 AM EDT

    Charles Barkley’s golf swing is notoriously bad. Like, so awful that even if you’ve never played golf in your life, your swing would still probably look better than the Chuckster’s. But Sir Charles continues to marvel us with his awkward stop-and-go style none the less, this time by stepping up to the first tee at…

  21. Extremely Large Dancing Sixers Fan Gets Profiled

    May 4, 2011, 12:43 PM EDT

  22. Exit Interviews: Evaluating the 2010-’11 Philadelphia 76ers

    May 2, 2011, 3:14 PM EDT

    Well, it was certainly an unexpectedly emotional season for our Liberty Ballers.

  25. Sixers-Heat, Game Five: Taking Miami to Lunch (Or Something)

    May 2, 2011, 12:36 PM EDT

    It’s hardly surprising to see that LeBron James sees his team’s first-round match up with the Sixers as something he and his cronies should be able to take care of while sipping their morning coffee and reading their local paper—this Heat squad has already set all kinds of records for unsubstantiated arrogance, and it’s like…
