  1. Thaddeus Young: Not traded, playing tonight, probably alongside Michael Carter-Williams

    Dec 20, 2013, 5:13 PM EDT

    Image (1) thaddeusyoungsneakers.jpg for post 485151

    Rough 48 hours for Thaddeus Young. Well, rough week if you extend to include the Philadelphia 76ers’ blowout in Brooklyn, and rough year if you…well, let’s not rehash the whole Megillah. But the last few days have likely been especially trying, as Young’s name was mentioned repeatedly in trade rumors for disenchanted Rockets center Omer…

  2. Philly fans welcomed Moses Malone to town by stealing his dry cleaning, says Dr. J

    Dec 20, 2013, 12:13 PM EDT

    Al Domenico, Billy Cunningham, Moses Malone

    Philadelphia 76ers legend Julius Erving was a guest on Bill Simmons podcast over at Grantland and it’s pretty damn awesome. The first nugget that immediately jumps out at you is when Dr. J tells of Moses Malone coming to Philly from Houston and not being prepared for what was in store. Moses drove to practice…

  3. Charles Barkley talks about Leroy Jetson, fires his mother

    Dec 20, 2013, 11:56 AM EDT


    In making a point regarding Gregg Popovich’s “system ball” in San Antonio, Charles Barkley had some amazing and hilarious things to say. After talking about the seeming lack of hustle in some players today, Charles wished he played the game today. “Ain’t no doubt in my mind, if I played the NBA today, I’d be…

  4. Michael Carter-Williams leads all rookies in jersey sales, 15th among all NBA players

    Dec 19, 2013, 12:06 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference

    The Sixers are not a very good basketball team. In fact, they are rather bad. It’s also typically assumed that their fanbase is weak and unsupported when times are tough as judged by some low attendance numbers. But how about this shocker… The league released jersey sales numbers for October through December and get this:…

  5. Photo Gallery: Checking out Kendall Marshall, Aquille Carr and the Delaware 87ers

    Thanasis Antetokounmpo

    The Delaware 87ers recently kicked off their season down at the Bob Carpenter Sports Convocation Center in Newark and we were lucky to have friend of the Level and photographer Tug Haines down at a game last week to snap some great photos of the D-League action. You can check out the gallery below. There…

  6. Brett Brown: ‘We can’t guard anybody’

    Dec 17, 2013, 10:32 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, James Anderson

    “We can’t guard anybody. We can’t guard our own man,” Sixers head coach Brett Brown said after the team’s seventh straight loss. “It starts with individual breakdowns and we’re just trying to put out fires all behind it.” Joe Johnson agrees. The Brooklyn Nets’ shooter put up an impressive 29 points in the third quarter…

  7. Joe Johnson hangs 29 on Sixers in third quarter, it’s just another day

    Dec 16, 2013, 10:11 PM EDT

    NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at Brooklyn Nets

    Sometimes, you feel so sad. The Philadelphia 76ers’ three-point defense has been historically woeful this season–tonight was their sixth game allowing an opposing team 15+ triples in a game, which is already an NBA record with a whole lotta games to go–but this was easily a new low. Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson–a good shooter…

  8. Mission Accomplished: Sixers back at bottom of Atlantic Division standings

    Dec 15, 2013, 11:12 AM EDT

    NBA: Portland Trail Blazers at Philadelphia 76ers

    Well, it’s been a long road back to redemption since starting the season 3-0, but now it’s official: The Sixers are once again the worst. After back-to-back losses this weekend–making it six in a row, but who’s counting–to the Raptors and Blazers, and with a miracle win for the Knicks last night against Atlanta, the…

  9. Brett Brown seems very happy with Nerlens Noel’s progress

    Dec 12, 2013, 9:34 PM EDT


    When you don’t see a guy on the court when you tune in for the Sixers every couple of nights, it’s easy to forget that they have one of the top prizes of the 2013 NBA Draft in Nerlens Noel. While Noel may not be seeing game action, he’s certainly hard at work and coach…

  10. We’re comparing Michael Carter-Williams to who now?

    Dec 11, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT


    As exciting as the first month-plus of Philadelphia 76ers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams’ career has been, we’re long-trained as sports fans to be a little wary of any hot start by an athlete that seems a little bit too good to be true. After all, MCW was taken with the 11th pick in a…

  11. This Grantland profile on Andre Iguodala is probably the best thing you’ll read today

    Dec 11, 2013, 10:29 AM EDT

    NBA: Golden State Warriors at Philadelphia 76ers

    Well, the best thing not on this website, anyway. Master profiler Jonathan Abrams has taken on longtime NBA enigma (and Philadelphia 76er of nearly a decade) Andre Iguodala with his latest opus, and the article paints a typically complete, compelling and complex portrait of the oft-misunderstood baller. You should really go to Grantland and read…

  12. Four gorgeous Tony Wroten passes from last night’s Sixers-Clippers game

    Dec 10, 2013, 3:13 PM EDT

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Philadelphia 76ers

    Brett Brown had a good quote about Tony Wroten earlier in the season about how Wroten might make the most incredible pass you’ve ever seen in your life, and then the next one will be off someone’s foot. That’s T-Wrote for you this Sixers season–he takes your breath away one minute, only to break your…

  13. Evan Turner on driving

    Dec 10, 2013, 2:38 PM EDT


    The Sixers are a team who are going to have to deal a whole lot with having to put losses behind them and move on to the next game at hand. Evan Turner gave a curious answer at practice today as to to how they may attempt to do move past the L’s. “You don’t…

  14. Watch: The most Nick Young shot attempt in the history of Nick Young shot attempts

    Dec 9, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2013-12-09 at 11.03.56 AM

    I once wrote that there’s “not a lot of swag in being quietly efficient.” I stand by that — and so does Nick Young. Yes, Kobe Bryant played his first game back from an Achilles injury last night, but the return of a five-time NBA champion and a future Hall of Famer was overshadowed by…

  15. What do the Sixers want with Rockets center Omer Asik?

    Dec 9, 2013, 12:22 PM EDT

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Utah Jazz

    Dec. 15th is a date worth keeping an eye on for Philadelphia 76ers fans, and/or general Sam Hinkie acolytes. It’s the date at which free agents signed over the course of the previous off-season can first be dealt, greatly expanding the pool of tradeable players. Naturally, it’s also the date at which league-wide trade talk…

  16. Sixers-Nuggets preview, featuring the worst defensive play of the 76ers’ season

    Dec 7, 2013, 5:40 PM EDT


    Have we mentioned the Philadelphia 76ers are now officially as bad as we expected them to be this season? If not, well then: The Sixers are now officially as bad as we expected them to be this season. We’re 2-9 in our last 11 games, with the only two wins coming at home against the…

  17. Please don’t use the word “infection” when talking about MCW, Brett Brown

    Dec 6, 2013, 5:24 PM EDT

    NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Philadelphia 76ers

    Oh boy. The Philadelphia 76ers head out to Charlotte tonight to take on the Bobcats, before heading all the way out to Denver on Saturday. Point guard (and Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for October, of course) Michael Carter-Williams will be missing at least the first and probably the second of the back-to-back, with…

  18. Watch Charles Barkley ride the subway for the first time

    Dec 6, 2013, 12:35 PM EDT


    I’ve long suggested that there could be a website dedicated solely to documenting everything Charles Barkley says and does. It’d be full of hilarious anecdotes. It’d feature videos of Charles getting ready for his regular appearances on TNT or even better, when he does mundane stuff like rides the subway in New York City for…

  19. Looking back at Philadelphia pro athletes’ Movember mustaches

    Dec 5, 2013, 4:20 PM EDT


    With another Movember in the books as of last Saturday, it’s time for The 700 Level to take a look back at some of the fine mustaches that adorned the upper-lip areas of your favorite Philadelphia pro athletes. Yes, mostly Flyers are featured. Sorry. A relentless search of the interwebs and social media didn’t produce…

  20. The Allen Iverson Celebriduck is making a comeback!

    Dec 5, 2013, 12:58 PM EDT


    Allen Iverson returned to the 76ers long after we thought we’d seen the last of him in South Philly, so why can’t the legendary Iverson Celebriduck make a comeback too? Longtime Sixers fans surely remember the buzz around Philadelphia when the 76ers launched one of the strangest and greatest promotional giveaways of all time: the…

  21. Your Tankapalooza update: Not the best/worst

    Dec 4, 2013, 12:45 PM EDT

    Sixers Dream Team Final Auditions 07/17

    The Sixers went on a nice long stretch of losing over the past few weeks. They’re simply awful on the road, it seems. But they’ve bounced back a bit and earned a very hard fought double overtime victory on Tuesday night over the equally scrappy Magic — those dudes would NOT go away. So where…

  22. Things that happened during last night’s weird Magic-Sixers game

    Dec 4, 2013, 10:03 AM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Philadelphia 76ers

    1. The Sixers won 126-125 in double overtime, slipping a couple spots in the tanking rankings. Considering the Sixers’ only two wins in their last ten games were against the Bucks and Magic, with both teams missing several crucial players to injury, they’re pretty forgivable victories. 2. Michael Carter-Williams had his first triple-double as a…

  23. Link Dump: Pat Croce’s mansion, DeSean dating Ashanti, Ruf times, and high fives

    Dec 3, 2013, 10:55 AM EDT


    Pat Croce’s Main Line mansion can be yours for just under $8 million as the former Sixers exec has listed his Villanova home for sale. You can check out some photos of the pad above. The Jolly Roger bar stools are a bit much. [6ABC] DeSean Jackson is apparently dating Ashanti. [Philly Mag] Swearing while…

  24. Notes from a week of losing Sixers basketball

    Dec 2, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    While you were out tryptophanning it up this Thanksgiving season, the Philadelphia 76ers played a trio of basketball games, and like a good little bottoming-out basketball team, they lost all three of them. As I wrote earlier, this was the start to a pretty key stretch of the season for the 76ers, one that saw…

  25. Michael Carter-Williams doesn’t see a dime of his NBA salary… yet

    Dec 2, 2013, 12:45 PM EDT


    Tales of pro athletes burning through the millions they’ve made are too commonplace these days. The one about Allen Iverson never bringing bags on the road and purchasing new clothes in every city they went to is a personal wtf/fave of mine. But every now and then a guy comes along and wins Player of…
