  1. Report: Sixers could finally break ground on a new practice facility this summer

    Apr 15, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Navy Yard Building Boom

    It’s been roughly 10 months since the Sixers first proposed building a new practice facility at the Navy Yard in South Philly, and according to a report from the Delco Times’ Chris Vito, construction could actually begin this summer, which sounds like a relief for head coach Brett Brown: “I believe we’re the last team…

  2. The Dog Days Are Over: Sixers thump Pistons, losing streak and bad times done forever

    Mar 29, 2014, 10:48 PM EDT

    Hip Hop

    It’s over. 26 games and exactly two months since the 76ers last experienced the joy of finishing a basketball game with more points than the dudes wearing the other unis, the Sixers are once again winners, triumphing over the Detroit Pistons tonight in front of a very appreciative Wells Fargo Center. The losing streak is…

  3. Cost of Doing Business: An unprecedented Sixers season merits unprecedented consequences

    The Sixers go for number 26 tonight. It’s been almost exactly two months since Evan Turner hit that tough runner in Boston to beat the Celtics, 95-94. Since then, the Sixers have played 25 games and have lost each and every one of them. None of the games have gone to overtime. Until that wacky…

  4. Sixers forward Arnett Moultrie ‘sick of excuses’ for not playing

    Feb 4, 2014, 3:37 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Denver Nuggets

    Arnett Moultrie hasn’t played for the Philadelphia 76ers since last season. Offseason ankle surgery forced the 6’11” power forward to miss training camp, and he has yet to suit up in a game for the Sixers since returning to practice on December 31. Conditioning undoubtedly had a lot to do with Moultrie not stepping right…

  5. Photo Gallery: Wing Bowl 22

    Another Wing Bowl put on by the folks of 94 WIP is in the books. The 22nd annual installment saw a record-shattering performance from new champion Molly Schuyler, a disappointing effort from Eagles lineman Jason Kelce, and a great cameo from Mr. Moon Shot himself, Matt Stairs. CSNPhilly photographer Aaron Talasnik was there to capture some…

  6. If every game was decided by five points or less, the Sixers would be finals contenders

    Here’s the two stats that tell you just about everything you need to know about this Philadelphia 76ers season. 1. The Sixers’ record in games decided by five points or fewer: 8-2 2. The Sixers’ record in games decided by six points or more: 7-29 Going into this season I hoped for one thing above…

  7. Brett Brown on Grantland: He loves that Philly is a cold and angry city

    The Sixers haven’t been putting a ton of ‘W’s in the win column as of late, but head coach Brett Brown has been winning fans over with his fantastic interviews. Last week it was a video chat he did with Henry Abbott of TrueHoop and today it’s a nice Q&A he had with Grantland’s Zach…

  8. What the hell has been going on with Sixers garbage time lately?

    Jan 20, 2014, 5:38 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Washington Wizards

    With their 107-99 loss to the Wizards in Monday’s MLK matinee–not really as close as that final score makes it look–the Philadelphai 76ers have lost three straight, and seven of eight. This is, of course, not particularly surprising: Despite winning four straight on the road prior to their recent cold spell, just about everything pointed…

  9. Brett Brown uses Skype, basically summarizes entire Sixers’ rebuilding philosophy perfectly

    Jan 17, 2014, 2:41 PM EDT

    Brett.Brown.skype

    I watched this TrueHoop video where ESPN’s Henry Abbott talks with Philadelphia 76ers Head Coach Brett Brown and the first thing that jumps out at me is that Brett Brown uses Skype. This just seems fascinating to me. Imagine a thoughtful Skype interview with another Philly coach like Charlie Manuel or Craig Berube. (Update: apparently…

  10. 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…

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

    Nerlens.Noel

    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…

  12. 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…

  13. PHI 107, CHI 104: The Sixers did it again. The beautiful bastards did it again.

    NBA: Chicago Bulls at Philadelphia 76ers

    We’re in uncharted waters here, people. Once is a fluke, twice is a coincidence, three times is a trend. Three nights after beating the two-time-champion Miami Heat and just one night after taking down the resurgent Wizards in Washington, the Sixers moved to 3-0 last night against the Chicago Bulls–maybe the only team in the…

  14. Brett Brown Cleans House of Assistant Coaching Staff, All Family Business Settled

    Aug 16, 2013, 3:22 PM EDT

    NBA: New York Knicks at Philadelphia 76ers

    It’s not gonna make too many headlines on city paper front pages the same day that the most successful manager in Phillies history is summarily dismissed, but it’s worth noting that Charlie Manuel’s removal from office is not the only coaching change that went down in Philly today. After brushing off questions about retaining the…

  15. What Are We Looking for From New Sixers Coach Brett Brown?

    Aug 16, 2013, 1:02 PM EDT

    Brett Brown

    The weird thing about following a team that everyone presumes is tanking next season–and everyone agrees should be following that exact strategy–is that it’s hard to get excited about potentially positive developments for the team. Any personnel move that might make this team better had better not make the team that much better for at…

  16. Brett Brown Ignores the Haters, Signs on with Sixers for Four Years

    Aug 12, 2013, 11:29 AM EDT

    NBA: Playoffs-San Antonio Spurs at Golden State Warriors

    Way to not give into peer pressure, BB. Despite Marc Stein’s asserting on Friday night–after what seemed like official word of Brett Brown’s commitment to the Sixers as their latest head coach–that Brown’s coaching peers with the Spurs and elsewhere were trying to take him out of a coaching job in Philly, calling the Sixers…

  17. Interminable Sixers Coaching Search At An End: It’s the Spurs Guy

    Aug 9, 2013, 4:29 PM EDT

    NBA: Playoffs-San Antonio Spurs at Golden State Warriors

    At the draft a month and a half ago, erroneous reports (which we played our part in further circulating) surfaced that the Sixers had hired former Spurs assistant and Australian national team head coach Brett Brown to succeed Doug Collins as the Ballers’ new fearless leader. A month-and-a-half after that story was debunked, and after 2/3…

  18. The Sixers Are Going on a Second Date with These Four Coaching Candidates

    Look, you know how it is. You move to a new town, you’re trying to find a place, get settled in at work, meet some new people, your mom — who in this case may be Rhea Hughes — keeps asking when you’re going to meet somebody… But so far, Sam Hinkie has seemed rather…

  19. Oh By the Way, 76ers Still Without a Head Coach – Does It Matter or No?

    Aug 5, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    slideshow-051413-sixers-hinkie-csn

    It’s a slow news day. The Phillies are off tonight and have drifted deep into no man’s land anyway, the Eagles held another open practice today at the Linc earlier but kept things light, and the Flyers and 76ers are firmly entrenched in their respective offseasons. That being said, we could probably talk about the…

  20. Sixers Reportedly Hire New Coach, Nearly Trade ET, Swap Second-Rounders Twice, What Else Can Possibly Happen Tonight?

    Jun 28, 2013, 12:11 AM EDT

    brett.brown

    It won’t be nearly the biggest headline for the Sixers for the night, but yes, Philly also exited draft night with a new head coach, with Spurs assistant coach Brett Brown reportedly being handed the reins for the Liberty Ballers. In addition to his work with San Antonio, Brown is also the coach of the…
