  1. Sixers 2013-14 Season Preview: Frequently Asked Questions

    Oct 29, 2013, 11:08 AM EDT

    NBA: Preseason-Minnesota Timberwolves at Philadelphia 76ers

    The unforgettable journey that will be the Philadelphia 76ers’ 2013-14 season tips off tomorrow night against the Miami Heat, to what should be a packed house of bandwagon LeBron fans and homeless people trying to get in from the cold. It’s going to be that kind of season, and while tomorrow will likely be the…

  2. The 700 Level hosts the first annual Sixers Prediction League

    Oct 25, 2013, 10:57 AM EDT

    NBA: Preseason-Minnesota Timberwolves at Philadelphia 76ers

    At long last, the NBA season is less than a week away, and that means it’s time to start making some pre-season predictions for this basketball team of ours. Instead of just oppressively foisting my likely incorrect predictions on you guys, though, I decided to get a consensus from around the Sixers-writing internet community, polling…

  3. Nerlens Noel Might Could Miss the Whole Season, Says Coach Brown

    Oct 21, 2013, 9:42 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    Well, at least in the last few hours, we’ve downgraded the urgency on reports out of Ohio State from “Brett Brown says Nerlens Noel will miss the whole season because his rehab is going slower than expected” to “Brett Brown says Nerlens Noel might miss the whole season just to be on the safe side.”…

  4. 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…

  5. Throw another one on the pile: Sixers sign raw prospect center Daniel Orton

    Oct 16, 2013, 11:25 AM EDT

    NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Phoenix Suns

    What do you do when you’ve already got a big man rotation stuffed with raw, unpolished, high-upside young’ns like Royce White, Gani Lawal and (eventually) Nerlens Noel? Why, go out and get another one, of course! Like any smart GM, Sam Hinkie knows that you can never buy too many lottery tickets, so he’s dispensed…

    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…

  7. Notes on Royce White’s unofficial Sixers debut from Friday

    Oct 14, 2013, 9:18 AM EDT

    NBA: Preseason-Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers

    Hey, the Sixers are 2-1 in the pre-season! A winning record! That doesn’t mean anything close to anything, but it’s a novel concept for a team whose regular season is surely going to start a losing one, and nearly as surely stay a losing one for the remainder of the year. The Sixers moved back…

  8. 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…

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

    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…

  10. Básquetbol! Sixers Tip Off Pre-Season in Bilbao, Spain

    Oct 6, 2013, 11:55 AM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Media Day

    You might be more focused on other sporting events this afternoon, but if you have a spare minute in between checking fantasy scores and throwing bad juju at Eli Manning, maybe flip over to NBA TV to check out your Philadelphia 76ers tip off the first chapter in what looks sure to be one of…
