    Wayne Simmonds and Claude Giroux took center stage at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday like they’ve done countless times before, only this time they were playing on hardwood instead of ice. The pair suited up to play against the legendary Harlem Globetrotters in South Philadelphia and those in attendance certainly got a show. Prior…

    Darrun Hilliard II

    Forget Michael Carter-Williams. The best player at the Wells Fargo Center this year might be Villanova junior guard Darrun Hilliard. A week after setting a career-high with 26 points in a 73-56 rout of Marquette at the Sixers’ home arena, Hilliard was all over the Wells Fargo court again, filling out the box score with…

    In case you weren’t ready for the Union opener tonight in Portland (10:30 p.m. – Comcast SportsNet), a few Eagles players are here to pump you up. That’s Connor Barwin, Todd Herremans and Brent Celek, proving that if you’re an NFL player, you actually can get Union jerseys in sizes larger than XL.

    #Flyers‘ Claude Giroux spins the basketball after getting guidance from the Harlem Globetrotters’ “Handles” Franklin. pic.twitter.com/zte1229ECV — Sam Carchidi (@BroadStBull) March 7, 2014 For some strange reason Flyers’ teammates Claude Giroux and Wayne Simmonds will team up in a game against the legendary Harlem Globetrotters this weekend down at the Wells Fargo Center in South…

  5. Brett Brown: ‘I think there is a win in the group, maybe a few.’

    Brett Brown

    Brett Brown says, funny enough, that he really loves the job of coaching the Sixers. Despite having ridiculously low odds of losing the remainder of their games this season (3/1) Brown doesn’t let his attitude sink as low as his team’s record. Brown was a guest on the Dan Patrick Show on Friday morning and…

    Philadelphia fans have been yapping about Jimmy Rollins not legging out ground balls for like a decade. That’s nothing new. But fans are also not legendary Phillies shortstop and former coach Larry Bowa. Bowa is back on the bench this season helping out with Ryne Sandberg’s crew. ESPN’s Jayson Stark caught up with the two…

    Yeah, I don’t know. You kinda just have to watch. And sure enough, yeah, there’s some lady laying on the concrete under the seats down in Florida stretching along with the Phillies — who are laying on luxurious fluffy green grass, mind you. And they say Cardinals fans are the best in baseball. Thanks to…

    SOC - Dynamo vs Phildelphia

    Much of my soccer “analysis” comes from playing FIFA14 on the XBox (XBox 360, sadly, not XBox One … some of us have families to feed). Ever since rosters updated a few weeks ago, I’ve played with the Union quite a bit, even trying out what I think Saturday’s expected formation will be for the…

  9. The Evster compares the Sixers’ players to NBA dudes who know how to actually play basketball

    Mar 7, 2014, 9:16 AM EDT

    (well at least he's got that skill)

    My favorite thing on the internet these days (besides this dude tryna dunk from the foul line) are the NBA player comparisons on NBADraft.net. If you’re not familiar with this website, YOU NEED TO REEVALUATE EVERYTHING YOU’RE DOING IN YOUR STUPID, BORING LIFE, NBADraft.net breaks down NBA Prospects by comparing them to current and former…

  10. Why the upcoming free agency bonanza of Carmelo Anthony and others is good news for the Sixers

    NBA: New York Knicks at Minnesota Timberwolves

    This upcoming offseason has the potential to be the most pivotal period the NBA has seen in four years, dating back to summer 2010, when the most high-profile free agent class in the sport’s history–headlined, of course, by LeBron James–hit the open market. Stars changed teams, franchises changed fortune, and before the summer was over,…

  11. Phillies announce ‘R U Game? Talent Search’ but it’s not actually for starting pitching help

    Title says it all. Well, mostly. It’s actually a talent search for national anthem singers. The full press release: WHAT: Hundreds of talented singers in the Delaware Valley will have their chance to prove that they have what it takes to sing the national anthem at a 2014 Phillies game. Fans, in groups of one…

    It’s not exactly Jennifer Lawrence and Brad Pitt but it’s not bad. “It’s raining I’m bored.. Time for a selfie and the best selfie ever! #phillies #wecray,” Ben Revere captioned the photo with. They so cray indeed. I mean, how many of these Philadelphia Phillies can you even name? Meanwhile, the Phillies beats fear for their lives.…
