  1. Ed Snider’s Long December

    Feb 15, 2006, 5:01 AM EDT

    It’s been a long December for Ed Snider and his teams.  Snider’s official title is Chairman of Comcast-Spectacor.  For those unfamiliar with Snider, he is basically the owner of the Flyers and Sixers.  From his online bio: Ed Snider is one of the true giants of the sports and entertainment industry. His career has been…

  2. Fantasy A.I. Trade

    Feb 14, 2006, 11:07 PM EDT

    The Sixers get Randy Foye, Craig Smith, Rashad McCants, Dan Dickau, LaMarcus Aldridge, and then trade Dickau and Aldridge for a No. 1 draft pick.  All that for Allen Iverson.  ESPN’s trade machine says it can work!  What fantasy deal can you get to pass through the trade machine? Picture this line up in 3…

  3. Men are from Mars, Iverson is from Mercury, & Sheed is from Uranus

    Feb 14, 2006, 10:44 PM EDT

    You know, just the other day when I was out hunting quail under the twilight moon, I found myself gazing to the stars and wondering to my self, "Self, I think its about time someone compared the moons and planets of our solar system to the National Baskeball Association players."  Behold, not days later, ESPN…

  4. Iverson Buys Sneakers!

    Feb 14, 2006, 8:21 PM EDT

    NBC 10 gets all paparazzi on Allen Iverson while he exits a Foot Locker with some new kicks.  A.I.’s only comment was "I love them" when asked if he had anything to say to his fans.  NBC10′s Vince DeMentri goes kind of Carl Monday on Allen.  By far the highlight of the clip is noticing…

  5. Delonte West is a Love Machine

    Feb 14, 2006, 3:21 PM EDT

    Deadspin tipped us off to Page2′s "interview" with former St. Joe’s University stud Delonte West.  He talks about his ideal date. So, I pick her up in my white convertible. From there, I’d have the music pumping on the radio. The Jim Jones pumping, you know, ‘Summer in Miami’ song pumping. Got to keep a…

  6. A.I. Headlines

    Feb 14, 2006, 12:57 PM EDT

    A headline from CBS Sportsline. A.I. deal not likely until you’re able to say T.G.I.F. Holy shit! So… not until Friday?!? Is that actually a real news site?  Not one of those shitty web log things?  I wonder if we could get Urkel in an Iverson deal. >>Iverson’s become quite popular: Top Athletes: We Have …

  7. DNabb is Better Than You

    Feb 14, 2006, 12:56 PM EDT

    Is this news? But Bottone, 26, was upset when Donovan McNabbwas whisked to the front of the security line Sunday at Luis Munoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where Bottone and some pals had been waiting for hours to clear security. McNabb, who was pushing a stroller and accompanied by wife Roxiand…

  8. Iverson for Nothing

    Feb 14, 2006, 9:50 AM EDT

    The deal David Aldridge writes of this morning nets the Sixers nothing at the end of this season.  So basically we’d be giving Iverson away so we can free cap space.  I don’t like it.  I’d like some young players (Delonte West types) and at least a draft pick on top of the expiring contract…

  9. Villanova is Legit

    Feb 14, 2006, 12:47 AM EDT

    Sure, they were regarded as one of the nation’s best before beating UConn last night at the Wachovia Center in South Philadelphia, but now they are a legitimate number one seed heading into March.  They aren’t just that team anymore from down Lancaster Ave that has a bunch of guards who can shoot.  They can…

  10. Tim Perry & Jeff Hornacek

    Feb 14, 2006, 12:36 AM EDT

    A weekly feature every Wednesday here at The 700 Level: card of the week. This week, Tim Perry and Jeff Hornacek. In anticipation of Allen Iverson being dealt for … well, for anything, we thought we’d take a trip down bad trade memory lane.  Back in ’92 the Sixers dealt The Round Mound of Rebound…

  11. Olympic Fun

    Feb 14, 2006, 12:20 AM EDT

    I think we should all have some fun with captioning images from the Olympics:a.) b.) c.) d.) All Images from NYTimes and Yahoo.  I may be weird, but tell me you don’t find the video of a Japanese half pipe run hilarious.  After the Jump. I’m pretty sure this guy got a 720 in there.
