  1. How much did Kwame Brown make per game? Per minute? Per point?

    Kwame Brown’s tenure as a Philadelphia 76er came to an end Wednesday night around 5 p.m. The Sixers waived Brown and Darius Morris prior to their loss to the Raptors to sign guards Lorenzo Brown and Elliot Williams. Explaining the moves, Brett Brown cited Tony Wroten’s play as what pushed Morris out the door, and…

  2. You will fall in love with Aquille Carr and the rest of the Delaware 87ers

  3. One very, very important thing to remember about this Sixers season

    Yeah, I know. Hard to imagine there’s anything left for me to preach about regarding the Philadelphia 76ers after the 5000-plus-word torrent of a team preview I unleashed yesterday, for a team that most people probably don’t care to read more than a couple sentences about. Still, there was one more point that I wanted…

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

    Oct 24, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    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…

  5. Could LeBron James be playing for the 76ers next season?

    Oct 17, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    lebron

    Of course not. Don’t be ridiculous. Technically, it is possible though—and not just in an alternate reality. LeBron James could use the early termination clause in his contract with the Miami Heat to become a free agent in 2014, at which point 30 NBA general managers would sprint to the nearest phone and call his…

  6. Hilarious: Watch Nick Young crash his toboggan while riding the Great Wall of China

    Oct 14, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    NICK-YOUNG-TOBOGGAN

    There is a Swag-sized hole in our hearts now that Nick Young is no longer a member of the 76ers. Young was replaced in the offseason by cheaper — presumably better — talent, but no combination of promising rookie pieces can be as horrifyingly entertaining as Swaggy jacking 30-footers. Now a member of his hometown…

  7. Doug Collins reflects on coaching run in Philly, Bynum trade, still pulling for the 76ers

    Oct 8, 2013, 4:38 PM EDT

    Spencer Hawes

    While the 76ers prepare to embark on a season where 10 wins sounds like a lofty goal, Doug Collins is settling back into his role as an NBA analyst for ESPN. That hardly seems fair. There is absolutely no question Collings poured his heart and soul into coaching the Sixers though—at least until he realized…

  8. The Evster breaks down the clammiest roster in Sixers history

    Oct 4, 2013, 7:17 AM EDT

    02HOLLIS.THOMPSON

    There are some things we know for sure about this year’s Sixers: Evan Turner will dribble around like a hunchback and shoot stepback jumpers off the side of the backboard. Thaddeus Young will make ridiculous corkscrew layups while occasionally smashing head first into the stanchion under the basket. Kwame Brown will do nothing. Absolutely nothing.…

  9. Photos: Kwame Brown is huge in Spain

Actually, putting Kwame on a promotional banner is a pretty safe bet. It’s unlikely he’s going anywhere. The other three banners in the Bilbao Exhibition Centre: Thad, Evan and…

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

  12. Arnett Moultrie out until new year, thin Sixers roster gets even thinner

    Sep 27, 2013, 10:54 AM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Denver Nuggets

    Poor Arnett. After the Sixers traded a future first in the 2011 draft to nab the Mississippi State forward from the Heat, he was bench-ridden nearly his entire rookie season with a combination of ankle injuries and Cranky Doug Collins. This year, though, he was finally going to get his shot for big minutes on…

  13. Your newest Sixer, Rodney Williams, once threw down pretty hard at the Gola

    Sep 25, 2013, 3:19 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2013-09-25 at 2.18.38 PM

    The Sixers on Monday made former Minnesota Golden Gopher Rodney Williams the latest to sign a partially-guaranteed deal with the franchise, joining him with Khalif Wyatt, Darius Morris, and Vander Blue. Williams, you may remember, played for the Sixers’ summer league team in Orlando after going undrafted. In his final year at Minnesota, the 6-foot-7…

  14. Sixers Sign Darius Morris, Who Woj Says Could Be Around for a Little

    Sep 12, 2013, 1:38 PM EDT

    The Sixers on Thursday continued to fill out what was once an almost non-existent backcourt with the signing of third-year guard Darius Morris. Via Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski: Morris, 22, will sign a partially guaranteed contract for the 2013-14 season, but is expected to make the 76ers’ roster and play meaningful backcourt minutes this season.

    Sad news for those in the #BeWell camp. According to an overnight report from TMZ, Royce White’s ex-girlfriend has filed a police report stemming from an incident between she and White earlier this summer. We’ll let TMZ handle the details: We know … White’s ex-girlfriend Tania Mehra — a Maxim model — filed a police…

  16. 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…

  17. If the Sixers Don’t Add $10 Million in Payroll, Then… Nothing

    Aug 23, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    With all the attention that’s placed on the salary cap, people can sometimes forget there’s also a salary floor. It’s not often we see that come in to play – spending too little is one problem the Flyers will never encounter – but after trading Jrue Holiday for draft picks and making no attempt to…

    You’re not going to find the 76ers in the Top 5 of many lists this offseason. Unless it’s a list for potential Top 5 picks in the 2014 draft or maybe teams who are the furthest under the salary floor. In Hinkie we trust! But fret not Sixers fans. You have a new reason to…

    Part 1 of our English Premier League Preview got a lot of great feedback on Thursday. Even the anti-soccer trolls left their dark basements to enjoy the sunshine, because they were nowhere to be found. Yesterday, we went through the 10 teams likely to finish in the bottom half of the 20-team league. Today we…

  20. Josh Harris: ‘The Sixers are staying in Philly’

    Aug 15, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Joshua Harris

    If there was ever any doubt about 76ers owner Josh Harris’ commitment to keeping the 76ers in Philadelphia, he attempted to put that to rest on Thursday. Harris’ ownership group has finalized a deal to purchase the New Jersey Devils and the Prudential Center in Newark (pending NHL approval). The unholy alliance was rumored for…

    Let’s face it, Philly sports are in a bad place right now (except for the Union!). And things will only get worse in a few weeks when the Eagles’ season kicks off (just admit it already). But I’m here to help. The English Premier League season begins Saturday at the bright-and-early time of 7:45 a.m.…

    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…

    Royce White did not play a game his rookie season. The reasons why are well noted. But this tweet from Sunday night indicates that White sees himself on the floor when the Sixers host the Heat on Oct. 30: Get a chance to play against @KingJames game 1, really cool. I’m excited! When 2 lions…

  25. 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…
