  1. ‘Iverson’ documentary debuts this weekend at Tribeca Film Festival, here’s the trailer

    Apr 24, 2014, 1:03 PM EDT

    Allen Iverson

    Get your popcorn ready. Forget Terrell Owens. If anybody could put on a show it’s Allen Iverson. The documentary, simply titled “Iverson” will debut this weekend up in New York at the Tribeca Film Festival. You can watch the trailer for it above. According to Deadline Hollywood: From first time director Zatella Beatty, Iverson features…

  2. CEO Scott O’Neil promises Malik Rose — Sixers will have a new mascot next year

    Apr 15, 2014, 9:05 AM EDT

    Hip Hop

    Following up on the news that construction could soon be underway on a new practice facility, there appears to be another key addition on the way for the 76ers. Team CEO Scott O’Neil joined Zoo and Malik during last night’s broadcast to hype the team’s surprising success with new season-ticket sales and provide a glimpse…

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

    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…

  4. Nope on Noel for Sixers’ “4-4-14″ game in Boston

    Apr 4, 2014, 5:22 PM EDT

    Nerlens Noel

    Well, we hoped that Nerlens Noel’s cryptic “4-4-14″ tweet some weeks ago was our prospect big man’s attempt to tell us something that not even his coach apparently yet knew: That he would be making his long-awaited return from injury for the Sixers’ April 4th game–incidentally, in Boston, where Noel grew up as a Celtics…

  5. 17,000 people showed up to watch the Sixers lose to the Pistons — and they WON

    A strangely huge crowd of more than 17,000 showed up at Wells Fargo Center Saturday night expecting (hoping?) to see the Sixers set the NBA record for consecutive losses at 27. They forgot that the Detroit Pistons are a total dumpster fire. The Sixers beat the Pistons, 123-98, in an absolute laugher. It was the…

  6. Details for Allen Iverson’s number retirement ceremony on Saturday

    All those top-10 Allen Iverson lists are circulating the internet for a reason. The Philadelphia 76ers are set to raise The Answer’s No. 3 into the Wells Fargo Center rafters in a halftime ceremony on Saturday night. Limited tickets are surprisingly still available, which says something about just how awful this team really is. If…

  7. Meta-Blogging: ZooWithRoy and The Evster dive yet deeper into Iranian basketball, focus on sideburns

    ZWR: As I do every Friday morning, I sat down with a cup of coffee and immediately pulled up The700Level to check out The Evster’s latest jawn. Seriously, I never work on Friday mornings. This post is evidence of that, because I’m doing it right after reading the column. Not working. Suck it, the man.…

  8. The Evster checks in on that Iranian rebounder dude the Sixers drafted

    On Wednesday night, the Sixers trotted out a starting lineup that consisted of Michael Carter-Williams, Thaddeus Young, one of those blue velcro shoes that they give to old people recovering from foot surgery, a child in an overcoat, and an abandoned building from 24th and Lehigh. Not exactly the best NBA team to ever take…

  9. Looks like they weren’t kidding about that Byron Mullens, Pop-a-Shot thing; He’s a chucker, alright

    Who gets up 11 shots in 17 minutes? Who throws a shoe, honestly? Take that back, Byron Mullens would probably shoot his own shoe if he couldn’t get his hands on the ball. Mullens’ stat line from his second game as a 76er appears above. His shot and shot distribution charts from this season appear…

    The Sixers are reinventing what we thought we knew about the art of tanking, losing to the Milwaukee Bucks, 130-110. They lost by 20 … to the Bucks … at home … so this guy could become an overnight celebrity. It is of regret that the big dude who holds up his shirt and jiggles was not…

  11. Even the Utah Jazz mascot was embarassing Sixers fans last night (VIDEO)

    The Sixers lost to the Jazz on Wednesday night out in Utah. Not only were Brett Brown’s bunch handed their season-worst eighth straight loss, but the Jazz’s mascot — cleverly named Bear — even used the opportunity to take a poor Sixers fan hostage and shave his head. Like being a Sixers fan isn’t humiliating…

  12. Grantland: Sixers are ‘tanking artists’, last two losses their ‘masterpiece’

    sixers-tank-logo

    Since winning four straight on the road against the Western Conference to ring in the New Year, the Philadelphia 76ers have a 3-17 record and are currently embroiled in a seven-game losing streak. That puts them at 15-38 for the season, the second-worst mark in the NBA. It’s glorious. Nobody was under any illusions about…

  13. The blowout-prone ’13-’14 Sixers: In good historical company

    If points lost by were musical notes, the Philadelphia 76ers would have composed Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band over their last two outings. One night and a couple hundred miles north after getting blown out 123-78 by the Clippers in LA, the Sixers paid a similar favor to their friends (including one particularly familiar…

  14. 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…

  15. Evan Turner, 76ers trade rumors heating up

    Feb 4, 2014, 1:11 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Boston Celtics

    Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown admitted on Monday that “It’s been an incredible surprise to have our team intact this late in the year.” From the sound of things, he might not want to get used to that feeling. The NBA trade deadline is right around the corner, and the Sixers figure to be…

    We’ll actually do this in reverse order of the headline. Both of these pictures come from 11points.com, which mined them from Sports Illustrated’s archive. First up is a 35-year-old Larry Brown. The year is 1975 and Brown is the head coach of the ABA’s Denver Nuggets. The NBA and ABA would not merge until 1976.…

  17. Story time: Wilt Chamberlain feared death by soda poisoning, a tape of the 100-point game exists, and one man did actually die in his seat at the Vet

    A reel-to-reel tape of Wilt Chamberlain’s 100-point game exists. But like so much else about Wilt’s career, no one’s sure where the damn thing is. You may not be familiar with him, but Josh Pastner is the head coach of the Memphis University basketball team. His No. 24 Tigers — who will be ranked higher…

    5. Playoffs! 2013 came and went, and not one of the big four managed to reach their respective sport’s postseason. In fact, we have to go all the way back to May of 2012 when the Flyers and 76ers both advanced to the quarterfinals. Philadelphia did have some postseason representation in 2013. La Salle’s men’s…

  19. Joe Johnson hangs 29 on Sixers in third quarter, it’s just another day

    Dec 16, 2013, 10:11 PM EDT

    NBA: Los Angeles Clippers at Brooklyn Nets

    Sometimes, you feel so sad. The Philadelphia 76ers’ three-point defense has been historically woeful this season–tonight was their sixth game allowing an opposing team 15+ triples in a game, which is already an NBA record with a whole lotta games to go–but this was easily a new low. Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson–a good shooter…

    I once wrote that there’s “not a lot of swag in being quietly efficient.” I stand by that — and so does Nick Young. Yes, Kobe Bryant played his first game back from an Achilles injury last night, but the return of a five-time NBA champion and a future Hall of Famer was overshadowed by…

    Have we mentioned the Philadelphia 76ers are now officially as bad as we expected them to be this season? If not, well then: The Sixers are now officially as bad as we expected them to be this season. We’re 2-9 in our last 11 games, with the only two wins coming at home against the…

    Hats off to Jason Kidd, who to date has seemed over-matched as a first-year head coach with an ancient roster, a questionable bench and very possibly the worst active general manager in the NBA. Hey, Billy King. But you’ve got to give the guy credit for ingenuity. With his Brooklyn Nets trailing the Lakers Wednesday…

  24. Sixers to retire Allen Iverson’s number in March

    Image (1) iverson.loud.noise.ear.jpg for post 489651

    There aren’t many higher accolades in the world of sports than having one’s uniform number retired, never to be issued again. It’s a special honor usually reserved for a truly one-of-a-kind player, a distinction that could not be more appropriate for a six-foot guard from Georgetown, Allen Iverson. Nobody could ever wear the No. 3…
