Evan Turner

  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. Mazel Tov, 76ers: Philly holds Cleveland to 79, wins Bynum Bowl easily

    Nov 8, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    NBA: Cleveland Cavaliers at Philadelphia 76ers

    With these Philadelphia 76ers, every day is Rosh Hashanah. The Sixers’ maintained their unlikely Atlantic Division lead tonight with a win at the Wells Fargo Center against the Cleveland Cavaliers–yet another of the come-from-behind variety, as the Sixers dogged their way to a 29-14 deficit at the end of the first quarter, only to outscore…

  4. Sixers lose to Wizards in first of hopefully many respectable losses this season

    Nov 7, 2013, 9:47 AM EDT

    NBA: Washington Wizards at Philadelphia 76ers

    The Golden State loss was embarrassing. Half-hearted offense, quarter-hearted defense, giving up open looks and highlight plays and letting eight-year Sixer Andre Iguodala have arguably his best-ever game on the Wells Fargo Center court wearing another team’s jersey…not so good, Al. We want to lose this year, sure, but we don’t want to have to…

  5. Video: Yes, the Sixers really did score 19-straight points to start the season against the Heat

    Oct 30, 2013, 8:37 PM EDT

    MCWslam

    The Sixers’ season got underway on Wednesday night and they wasted no time flipping the script on everything fans of this team knew about the planet called Earth we live on. They scored 19-straight points to start the game before Miami notched a single bucket. Michael Carter-Williams got an open-court dunk for the first NBA…

  6. Evan Turner’s just a soul in a contract year whose intentions are good

    Oct 26, 2013, 3:49 PM EDT

    evan.turner

    Whatever your criticisms are of Evan Turner–and there are those to be had if you’re looking, surely–you couldn’t really ever say that he doesn’t give a crap. He tries too hard sometimes, he tries in the wrong direction others, but he tries, and it wouldn’t be fair to say that he’s been coasting to earn…

  7. The Sixers have one week to extend Evan Turner — What are their options?

    Oct 24, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams represent the Sixers' future? But does Evan Turner? We're about to find out. (USA Today Images)

    The Sixers’ three biggest preseason storylines involve Lavoy Allen missing practice, their future franchise centerpiece who probably won’t play at all (which no one minds) and the creation of Team Whop. Two things: 1. There’s really, truly, sadly, but sort of gloriously, very little of note to report. 2. And even the relevant contract talk…

  8. Numbers of Note from the Sixers’ pre-season

    Oct 18, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    NBA: Preseason-Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers

    We’re over halfway done with the Sixers’ exhibition season, and while it’s not necessarily worth going too deep into the analysis for each and every game at this point–especially when they lose by 56 combined points over the course of two contests–there are definitely some trends still worth noting. Here’s some of the numbers, good…

  9. Is this heaven, Evan Turner? No, it’s the Wells Fargo Center

    Oct 15, 2013, 2:04 PM EDT

    evan.turner

    Not a lot of people came out to the WFC on Monday night to watch the Sixers get shredded by the Brooklyn Nets in the Ballers’ fourth game of the pre-season. Coach Brett Brown referred to the game as a “reality check,” and though he was probably more talking about the 127-97 final score, he…

  10. Sixers hang in second pre-season game, lose to Thunder despite hot shooting

    Oct 8, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Oklahoma City Thunder

    The Philadelphia 76ers can only hope that in three or four years they’re anywhere close to where the Oklahoma City Thunder are as a team and a franchise, but as they say, on any given pre-season Tuesday night in Manchester (at a building called the Phones 4u Arena??). Anyway, the Sixers held tough against the…

  11. Take It On the Run: Up-tempo Sixers narrowly defeat Bilbao Spain in pre-season opener

    Oct 7, 2013, 9:43 AM EDT

    sixers preseason

    Whoo. You might have needed to catch your breath a bit after that surprisingly suspenseful and absolutely exhausting-looking pre-season opener for the Philadelphia Sixers in Bilbao, Spain, in which the Liberty Ballers managed to just escape a loss with a fourth-quarter surge to take the lead, and then a couple clutch Spencer Hawes free throws…

  12. Let’s give the new staff a chance before we write Evan Turner off completely

    Oct 4, 2013, 2:28 PM EDT

    evan.turner

    Jason Wolf of Delaware Online published an article today entitled “76ers’ focus on analytics may hurt Evan Turner.” The piece focuses on ET’s underwhelming stats and general ineffectiveness as a scorer, which stand in fairly stark contrast to the Sixers’ obvious new direction, one with a clear tilt in favor of advanced stats and a…

  13. Evan Turner’s hilarious media day mic test (NSFW)

    Sep 27, 2013, 12:58 PM EDT

    Evan

    No words needed. Well, maybe one. (s/o to a number of Sixers bloggers for bringing this to our attention, originally Max Frishberg)

  14. Everything You Need to Know About Sam Hinkie’s Ability to Blow Up the Sixers Next Summer

    Sep 4, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    sam-hinkie-USA

    Discussion of the Sixers’ upcoming tank job usually focuses on next year’s loaded NBA Draft. The Sixers will have could very well own two lottery picks, one of their own and one from New Orleans. But what’s getting left out of this conversation is the team’s current roster. You know,  all the guys who will…

  15. Jrue Holiday addresses Philadelphia and New Orleans fans on Facebook

    Jun 28, 2013, 11:38 AM EDT

    jrue-evan-hug-USA

    Thaddeus Young tweeted: OMG …. — Thad Young (@yungsmoove21) June 28, 2013 Congrats to all the draftees tonight…. Sad to see @jrue_holiday11 go… Welcome @nerlensnoel3 and @mcw1… #sixernation goodnight — Thad Young (@yungsmoove21) June 28, 2013 Andre Iguodala tweeted: You next??? “@yungsmoove21: OMG ….” — Andre Iguodala (@andre) June 28, 2013 Evan Turner tweeted: Wait,…

  16. 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…

  17. Reviewing the Ten Biggest Questions for the Sixers Off-Season with Michael Levin

    Jun 19, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    NBA: Golden State Warriors at Philadelphia 76ers

    We’ve been spending the off-season counting down the ten biggest questions facing the Sixers as they transition from the Doug Collins era into a rather uncertain future. Now that we’re done the roll-out, we figured it was time to call on our old friend Michael Levin, of the excellent Sixers blog Liberty Ballers, and get…

  18. Is Domonic Brown Having a Good Year or Not?

    May 23, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT

    MLB: Miami Marlins at Philadelphia Phillies

    Even if the Phils ended up a .500 team or worse this season, I think I could be pretty OK with that if I was convinced by year end that Domonic Brown was gonna be a really good player for years to come. Talking to my dad about Dom recently, he hit the nail on…

  19. The Sixers Will Need More Luck Than They Deserve at the Lottery Tonight

    May 21, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    evan-turner-76ers

    Tonight will be a fateful night for a number of teams at the 2013 Draft Lottery in New York, as David Stern will dramatically unveil a series of envelopes containing logos from crappy teams until just three lucky franchises remain, who will get to pick from the cream of the crop from this year’s class…

  20. Ten Biggest Questions for the Sixers Off-Season: #4. What the Hell Do We Do with Evan Turner?

    May 20, 2013, 9:23 AM EDT

    evan.turner

    After enduring three years of absolutely vexing basketball from their former #2 overall pick, the Philadelphia 76ers are about to reach decision time with Evan Turner. The Extraterrestrial’s rookie contract is in its final year next season, meaning that unless they ink him to an extension at some point before November, Turner will become a…
