  1. Sixers to retire Allen Iverson’s number in March

    Nov 27, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    There aren’t many higher accolades in the world of sports than having one’s uniform number retired, never to be issued again. It’s a special honor usually reserved for a truly one-of-a-kind player, a distinction that could not be more appropriate for a six-foot guard from Georgetown, Allen Iverson. Nobody could ever wear the No. 3…

  2. Are we tanking yet? Sixers start key stretch of season against league’s creamy middle

    As we speak, the Philadelphia 76ers sit at 6-9, with a nice long four-day break after their Saturday loss to the Indiana Pacers. The record isn’t very good in an objective sense, but it’s light years ahead of where most Sixers fans expected the team to be at this point in the year, and it’s…

  3. President Barack Obama reveals he was once a 76ers fan, noted Republican Spencer Hawes reacts

    We recently wrote about Dr. J appearing on the Colbert Report television program and telling a tale of how he was once set to play a basketball game with President Obama and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. So it was extra interesting today to learn that the President was once a 76ers fan, probably back when Julius…

  4. THEY DIDN’T DO IT AGAIN TELL ME THE SIXERS DIDN’T DO IT AGAIN

    Nov 23, 2013, 12:25 AM EDT

    NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Philadelphia 76ers

    They did it again. The f’ing Sixers. Evan friggin’ Turner. SPENCER GODDAMN HAWES. They did it again, and I don’t know why we’re still even surprised at this point. I know always say this game was over, guys, you won’t believe how over this game was before it wasn’t over. But c’mon. THIS GAME WAS…

  5. No Thaddeus Young again tonight against the Bucks

    Nov 22, 2013, 6:28 PM EDT

    NBA: Playoffs-Atlanta Hawks at Milwaukee Bucks

    Another winnable game tonight against the 2-8 Milwaukee Bucks, but for the sixth game in a row, the Sixers will be down a starter–as soon as we got Michael Carter-Williams back from his bad feet, Thaddeus Young has gone MIA for undisclosed personal reasons, with his return date left to “he and his family.” We’re…

  6. How much did Kwame Brown make per game? Per minute? Per point?

    Nov 21, 2013, 12:29 PM EDT

    Photo was way too appealing to pass up. (AP)

    Kwame Brown’s tenure as a Philadelphia 76er came to an end Wednesday night around 5 p.m. The Sixers waived Brown and Darius Morris prior to their loss to the Raptors to sign guards Lorenzo Brown and Elliot Williams. Explaining the moves, Brett Brown cited Tony Wroten’s play as what pushed Morris out the door, and…

  7. Uh-oh, Sixers host Raptors in game they should probably actually win

    Nov 20, 2013, 5:34 PM EDT

    NBA: Toronto Raptors at Philadelphia 76ers

    Update: The Sixers have announced the signings of guards Elliot Williams and Lorenzo Brown to fill up the roster spots vacated by Darius and Kwame. Also, Daniel Orton is starting tonight in place of Thaddeus Young, who is away from the team for personal reasons. This team, obviously. Well, this is a new one. The…

  8. Lorenzo’s Pizza now available at the Wells Fargo Center

    Nov 19, 2013, 3:11 PM EDT

    pizza

    Some strange people around the Internets were not exactly satisfied recently with the “limited” food offerings at the beautiful home of the Flyers, Sixers, and numerous Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber concerts. Those nitwits will be happy to learn that Lorenzo & Sons Pizza — a staple of South Street and Will Smith songs —…

  9. It sure looked like Evan Turner got fouled before getting T’ed up

    Oh, Evan. The KidET got T’ed up at a very inopportune time in last night’s tough loss in Dallas to the Mavericks. The Sixers held their own on the final night of their challenging road trip and found themselves right in the game down to the wire. An Evan Turner drive-and-flail ended in a no-call…

  10. Charles Barkley says ‘black people don’t play beer pong’ after Jordan pong comeback

    Nov 19, 2013, 11:10 AM EDT

    MJBPshoes111313

    Michael Jordan was spotted (not wearing something truly awful for once) playing beer pong last week and the Internet was all abuzz. This was a big deal for some reason. This didn’t really register on our radar until TMZ put a camera in front of Charles Barkley’s face last night and asked him about MJ’s…

  11. VIDEO: 16 blocked Sixers shots in 39 seconds

    pelicans

    “What kind of party is it, Kenny?” “Oh, it’s a block party, Chuck.” “And who’s invited, Kenny?” “Oh, the Sixers are invited, Chuck.” The Philadelphia 76ers played the New Orleans Pelicans in the Big Easy on Saturday, and the results were not good. The Sixers let up a season-high 135 points to the Pellies–only the…

  12. Sixers generously help Jrue Holiday and the Pelicans get back on track with blowout loss

    Nov 16, 2013, 10:29 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at New Orleans Pelicans

    Guess it’s no hard feelings between Jrue Holiday and the Philadelphia 76ers after the trade that sent him to New Orleans back in June–on our side, anyway. The Sixers did their old friend the favor of basically laying down for his squad tonight, not only letting Jrue get back on track, but giving the ailing…

  13. What Up Damaja: Sixers visit Jrue and the Pelicans in New Orleans

    Nov 16, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Charlotte Bobcats

    Hey, remember Jrue Holiday? He played in Philadelphia for a minute, made the playoffs once or twice, was considered one of the 12 best players in the East for at least one February, then was jettisoned about 15 minutes into the Sam Hinkie era for other stuff that’ll hopefully help out at some point. He’s…

  14. Guess who’s back for the Hawks against the Sixers tonight?

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Cleveland Cavaliers

    It feels like many Sixers teams ago since Lou Williams was our first man off the bench–even if he had resigned with the Sixers in the summer of 2012, he probably would have been traded by now anyway. But in a way, it feels like he’s still buried on the bench somewhere, because he’s played…

  15. Let’s talk fake Sixers trades: Evan and Spencer edition

    Nov 15, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT

    evan.spencer.hawes.turner

    Nine games into the season, and Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes have done exactly what we wanted them to do to start the year: They’ve played their way into potential trade-chip status. Evan’s had a couple rough shooting nights recently–though let’s not forget that a rough shooting night for Evan used to mean shooting 3-15…

  16. GIF: Andre Iguodala buzzer beats the Thunder, leaves front row fans hanging

    Nov 15, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT

    NBA: Golden State Warriors at Philadelphia 76ers

    It hasn’t been all that difficult moving on from Andre Iguodala as a Sixers fan. Sure, he’s continued his all-around style of play with his current club, the Golden State Warriors. But he’s never reached superstar levels and he still hasn’t been totally likable as demonstrated by his reaction after drilling this buzzer beater against…

  17. The Evster: the Sixers are cool but the Wells Fargo Center still kinda sucks

    Nov 15, 2013, 7:22 AM EDT

    chickies

    Don’t let the Sixers fool you. Despite their bonkers start, this organization is still completely and totally incompetent. I love Evan Turner, and I would jam my tongue into Michael Carter Williams’s mouth, and I am almost, almost, almost ready to cheer when Spencer Hawes makes a three-pointer, but this team still has a lot…

  18. You will fall in love with Aquille Carr and the rest of the Delaware 87ers

  19. Spencer Hawes with the posterization of Dwight Howard

    Nov 14, 2013, 12:58 PM EDT

    Spencer Hawes, Dwight Howard

    Andrew already wrote in detail about Spencer Hawes’ impressive performance last night but due to popular demand we needed to give this photo of Spence dunking on the Houston Rockets’ Dwight Howard it’s on full-width treatment. It is beautiful. Philadelphia 76ers’ Spencer Hawes, right, scores the go-ahead basket against Houston Rockets’ Dwight Howard during overtime…

  20. One, two, three four five ridiuclous wins for the Sixers after absurd Rockets OT victory

    Nov 13, 2013, 10:53 PM EDT

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Philadelphia 76ers

    How about this for a lead: Tonight, in his first-ever start in the NBA (filling in for MCW and his bad arches), Tony Wroten–the point guard the Sixers bought from Memphis for a couple free tickets to the Please Touch Museum–racked up a triple-double, with 18 points, 11 dimes and ten boards, easily setting career…

  21. Does the Sixers’ long-overdue losing season begin tonight against the Rockets?

    Nov 13, 2013, 5:48 PM EDT

    sam-hinkie-USA

    UPDATE: No James Harden or MCW in this one tonight, as Harden is resting with a lingering foot issue and Carter-Williams is sitting with what’s called a “left foot arch bruise.” Both are listed as day-to-day. Probably. The Sixers have given us several seasons’ worth of unexpected entertainment the first few weeks of the season,…

  22. Joey Crawford is the best, unhappy with ball boy’s shoddy mop work

    Nov 13, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Joey.Crawford

    We here at the Level think Joey Crawford is the best referee to ever call a game in the NBA. Honestly, I don’t understand why so many people think otherwise. The guy is from Havertown after all and once coached me when I was in like the 4th grade. Something like 99.9 percent of the…

  23. Playing fast could actually help the Sixers tank?

    Nov 13, 2013, 12:40 PM EDT

    NBA: Preseason-Minnesota Timberwolves at Philadelphia 76ers

    Are the Sixers helping their tanking cause by playing fast? It’s an interesting theory and one explained in more detail in the below video by Tom Haberstroh for ESPN’s TrueHoop. The premise is rather simple: the better team (not the Sixers usually) increases the likelihood of winning the longer a game goes on. This gives…

  24. Talking basketball with the voice of the Philadelphia 76ers, Marc Zumoff

    Nov 11, 2013, 2:20 PM EDT

    Malik.Rose.Marc.Zumoff

    When the Sixers got off to their ridiculous 3-0 start the season, the people I was happiest for (besides myself) were our long-suffering TV announcers, Marc Zumoff and Malik Rose. Zoo and Malik, who wear their hearts on their sleeves as much as any other announcing team in the Association, seemed to take the anguish…

  25. Evan Turner: Is he for real this time?

    Nov 11, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT

    NBA: Preseason-Minnesota Timberwolves at Philadelphia 76ers

    Seven games into the 2013-14 NBA season, and Evan Turner is still straight killing it. It started opening night, where his team-high 26 points on 10-19 shooting were largely overshadowed by the historic debut performance of shiny new teammate Michael Carter-Williams, but were still enormous in the Sixers’ shocking upset of the Miami Heat. And…
