Michael Carter-Williams

  1. Exit Interviews: Evaluating the 2013-’14 Philadelphia 76ers

    Apr 23, 2014, 12:46 PM EDT

    mcw2

    It’s an unusual team that leaves you with such a feeling of confidence and optimism after losing 77% of their games in the regular season, but such was the story of the 2013-’14 Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers were very bad indeed, but they were bad with a purpose, and frankly, they could (and probably should)…

  2. Michael Carter-Williams is your Rookie of the Year and fie on anyone who tries to tell me otherwise

    Apr 16, 2014, 10:59 AM EDT

    mcw

    It’s hard to remember the last argument that made me as defensive, territorial and generally homer-ish as this year’s Rookie of the Year debate. As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one option for this award, and has only been one since the very first week of the season; that of course being Philadelphia 76ers…

  3. 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…

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

    Mar 27, 2014, 3:04 PM EDT

    mullens

    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…

  5. The Unstoppable Force Meets, Like, the Most Movable Object Ever: A state of the union before Sixers-Spurs

    Mar 24, 2014, 3:04 PM EDT

    mcw

    37 games. That’s the disparity in win streaks between the Philadelphia 76ers, who have dropped 24 straight, and the San Antonio Spurs, who have rolled through their last 13 games, at the moment. It’s a difference in current franchise realities that should be rather prominently on display when the two teams face off tonight in…

  6. The Sixers lost obviously but watch MCW achieve triple double with just 2.2 seconds left

    Mar 10, 2014, 11:44 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    The sun rises in the east and sets in the west and the Sixers lost on Monday night. The notable takeaway from the ugly evening up at the Garden was MCW’s triple double. Notable for the fact that it was just the second of his young NBA career but also for the fashion in which…

  7. The 2013-14 76ers: So what’s left, exactly?

    Feb 21, 2014, 1:03 PM EDT

    nerlens.noel

    There are 27 games remaining in the Philadelphia 76ers’ 2013-14 season, and by all estimations, it should be a long 27. Coming off a nine-game losing streak, the Sixers seem pretty unlikely to turn that around anytime soon, now missing two starters in Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes and a third rotation guy in Lavoy…

  8. Watch Michael Carter-Williams rep for the Sixers this All-Star Friday and Saturday

    Feb 14, 2014, 3:12 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t exactly played like a team lately that deserves much recognition at a weekend celebrating the NBA’s best and brightest, having lost eight games in a row and sunk to near the very bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. And indeed, the Sixers will only be sending one representative to New Orleans…

  9. Preview: New ‘Summer Dreams’ documentary tracks MCW’s journey to NBA

    Feb 5, 2014, 3:12 PM EDT

    mcw

    CBS released a trailer for a new documentary that will air in March titled “Summer Dreams” which, according to TV Guide, “will spotlight 2013 first-round draft picks Michael Carter-Williams of thePhiladelphia 76ers and the Dallas Mavericks‘ Shane Larkin, son of baseball Hall of Famer Barry Larkin, as they make their way through the grueling 10-day, 61-game summer…

  10. Sixers lose, but Thaddeus Young gives us a couple highlights for our troubles

    Jan 24, 2014, 9:46 PM EDT

    NBA: Toronto Raptors at Philadelphia 76ers

    Whatever positive momentum the Philadelphia 76ers carried over from their win in New York on Wednesday fizzled by the second half of tonight’s home game against the Atlantic-leading Toronto Raptors, whose backcourt of All-Star hopefuls basically beat the Sixers on their lonesome tonight. The Sixers played the Raptors tough for two-and-a-half quarters, but the offense…

  11. 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…

  12. LeBron James says Sixers have a “good one” in Michael Carter-Williams

    Jan 17, 2014, 1:48 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams, LeBron James

    Michael Carter-Williams’ NBA debut was one Sixers fans won’t soon forget. LeBron James and the Miami Heat probably haven’t forgotten it either. MCW dazzled us in his first game as a Sixer with 22 points, 12 assists and 9 steals. And he did it while leading his team to victory over the defending NBA champs…

  13. Do any of the Sixers have a legitimate case for making the All-Star team?

    Jan 2, 2014, 12:49 PM EDT

    NBA: San Antonio Spurs at Philadelphia 76ers

    After his fine performance last night against the Nuggets in Denver, sideline reporter Molly Sullivan asked Philadelphia 76ers breakout performer (of sorts) Evan Turner about his All-Star chances. The question took me by surprise, but not Evan, who clearly had been given the question some thought himself, and encouraged the Sixers’ PR peons to get…

  14. Sixers stay undefeated in 2014, clinch not having worst record of all-time with 10th W

    Jan 2, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Denver Nuggets

    Once upon a time, there were knowledgeable basketball folk who predicted the 2013-14 Philadelphia 76ers would present a legitimate challenge to the Sixer team of four decades earlier and their record for all-time futility in an 82-win season, when the squad went 9-73 back in ’73. As one of his Bold Predictions for the ’13-’14…

  15. Thaddeus Young: Not traded, playing tonight, probably alongside Michael Carter-Williams

    Dec 20, 2013, 5:13 PM EDT

    Image (1) thaddeusyoungsneakers.jpg for post 485151

    Rough 48 hours for Thaddeus Young. Well, rough week if you extend to include the Philadelphia 76ers’ blowout in Brooklyn, and rough year if you…well, let’s not rehash the whole Megillah. But the last few days have likely been especially trying, as Young’s name was mentioned repeatedly in trade rumors for disenchanted Rockets center Omer…

  16. Michael Carter-Williams leads all rookies in jersey sales, 15th among all NBA players

    Dec 19, 2013, 12:06 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference

    The Sixers are not a very good basketball team. In fact, they are rather bad. It’s also typically assumed that their fanbase is weak and unsupported when times are tough as judged by some low attendance numbers. But how about this shocker… The league released jersey sales numbers for October through December and get this:…

  17. We’re comparing Michael Carter-Williams to who now?

    Dec 11, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT

    michael.carter-williams

    As exciting as the first month-plus of Philadelphia 76ers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams’ career has been, we’re long-trained as sports fans to be a little wary of any hot start by an athlete that seems a little bit too good to be true. After all, MCW was taken with the 11th pick in a…

  18. 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…

  19. The Evster breaks down this year’s Heisman hopefuls

    Dec 6, 2013, 7:11 AM EDT

    Heisman.flutie.webb.geno

    Everyone loves a Heisman winner (except Rashaan Salaam, that guy sucked). And next Saturday night, another strapping, brooding, virile young man will join college football’s most exclusive fraternity. Soon after, the new Heisman winner will have his oil-painted portrait hung up alongside some of the finest competitors to ever play the game: like Nile Kinnick,…

  20. Things that happened during last night’s weird Magic-Sixers game

    Dec 4, 2013, 10:03 AM EDT

    NBA: Orlando Magic at Philadelphia 76ers

    1. The Sixers won 126-125 in double overtime, slipping a couple spots in the tanking rankings. Considering the Sixers’ only two wins in their last ten games were against the Bucks and Magic, with both teams missing several crucial players to injury, they’re pretty forgivable victories. 2. Michael Carter-Williams had his first triple-double as a…

  21. Michael Carter-Williams doesn’t see a dime of his NBA salary… yet

    Dec 2, 2013, 12:45 PM EDT

    mcw.bulls.rose

    Tales of pro athletes burning through the millions they’ve made are too commonplace these days. The one about Allen Iverson never bringing bags on the road and purchasing new clothes in every city they went to is a personal wtf/fave of mine. But every now and then a guy comes along and wins Player of…

  22. Of course Michael Carter-Williams’ first word was ‘ball’

    Nov 6, 2013, 12:39 PM EDT

    michael-carter-williams.mcw

    There’s probably a lot of similarity to the first words kids say: Ma-ma, Da-da, Isaiah Pead, dog, etc. I think you’ll be happy to know that the first word out of the mouth of exciting Sixers’ rookie Michael Carter-Williams was in fact “ball.” Who cares that that’s actually one of the top ten most common…

  23. That’s our Sixers: Andre Iguodala and the Warriors get Philly back on the losing track

    Nov 4, 2013, 9:52 PM EDT

    NBA: Golden State Warriors at Philadelphia 76ers

    Boos. 4th quarter minutes for Hollis Thompson and Brandon Davies. Furious Brett Brown timeouts. Chants of “AN-DREW WIG-GINS.” Now that’s the kind of basketball we expected at the Wells Fargo Center this season. None of this miracle win crap. Just losing and humiliation and one very, very sad Malik Rose. The Sixers lost by a…

  24. Examining how Michael Carter-Williams is setting the league on fire

    Nov 4, 2013, 3:17 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    Through his first three pro games, Michael Carter-Williams is averaging 20.7 points on 47% shooting, with about nine assists, five rebounds and four steals. Those numbers aren’t just impressive for a little-hyped rookie, they’re impressive for absolutely anybody. Carter-Williams’ current PER of 29.2 is nearly six whole points higher than that of four-time league MVP…

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

    Nov 3, 2013, 6:27 AM EDT

    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…
