  1. Sixers Release Schedule: A Look at the Fun Times Ahead

    Aug 6, 2013, 6:53 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Miami Heat

    The schedules for all 30 NBA teams were released today, with the release of the news packing its usual “oh yeah, I guess there’s really nothing that exciting to be learned here” punch. I haven’t counted to make sure, but it seems like the Sixers will indeed play 82 games this season–41 home, 41 away,…

  2. The Sixers Are Going on a Second Date with These Four Coaching Candidates

    Aug 6, 2013, 10:37 AM EDT

    Look, you know how it is. You move to a new town, you’re trying to find a place, get settled in at work, meet some new people, your mom — who in this case may be Rhea Hughes — keeps asking when you’re going to meet somebody… But so far, Sam Hinkie has seemed rather…

  3. Oh By the Way, 76ers Still Without a Head Coach – Does It Matter or No?

    Aug 5, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    It’s a slow news day. The Phillies are off tonight and have drifted deep into no man’s land anyway, the Eagles held another open practice today at the Linc earlier but kept things light, and the Flyers and 76ers are firmly entrenched in their respective offseasons. That being said, we could probably talk about the…

  4. This Is What Jrue Holiday Will Be Wearing Next Season

    The New Orleans Hornets are no more. Introducing, the New Orleans M-Fing Pelicans! (Note: M-F’ing not actually part of their official name.) The Pelicans on Thursday unveiled their new uniforms for the 2013 season. That’s Jrue there on the right. You remember him. The Internet seems to think the design is a bit boring. Uni-Watch,…

  5. Experts Agree: The Sixers Are Gonna Be the Absolute Worst Next Season

    Jul 31, 2013, 3:04 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference

    Well, we traded our only reliable offensive creator, we drafted a guy who might not play at all next year, and we still don’t have coach. Aside from that, things are looking bright for the Philadelphia 76ers–seriously, we got all them prospects and draft picks and cap space and whatnot–but obviously, winning games next year…

  6. Watch Nerlens Noel Dance Gangnam Style with Children

    Jul 30, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

    Nerlens.Gangham

    I’m no doctor, but I’m gonna go ahead and say Nerlens Noel is on the way to recovery from his torn ACL, at least well enough to teach kids at John Calipari’s ProCamps the important lessons of teamwork, leadership, and Gangnam Style. Who is having more fun at ProCamps, the little ones or Nerlens Noel?…

  7. You Could Fill An Entire Arena with All This Old Andrew Bynum Gear (And Some $2 Toasters)

    Want a $2 dollar toaster that will print the Phillies’ logo on your bread? Of course, you do. [UPDATE: THE TOASTERS ARE ALREADY GONE. ONE GUY BOUGHT THREE.] Welcome to the annual Wells Fargo Center blowout sale. This is the event when all the dated merchandise leftover from last year — or even years prior…

  8. Finalized Trades, Coach Interviews, Anticipated Hibernation: A Non-MCW Sixers News Roundup

    That Boy Jrue sure seemed to enjoy his honeymoon, as his vacation with new bride Lauren Cheney ended up delaying his trade to New Orleans–which could technically have been made official on Wednesday–until yesterday, when he finally became a Pelican, being formally introduced as the team’s new point guard. As previously reported, Holiday’s departure (along…

  9. Sixers Finish Summer League; Michael Carter-Williams Frustrates But Intrigues

    Jul 13, 2013, 1:04 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference

    Orlando is over, and the Sixers will be packing up shop for a couple months now. The Sixers finished their Summer League set with a 1-4 record, their one win coming when they barely beat the Nets on the last day in a battle of the league’s two worst teams, in a game that was…

  10. I Don’t Recall Saying “Good Luck”: Andrew Bynum Signs With Cavaliers

    Jul 11, 2013, 1:35 AM EDT

    NBA: Utah Jazz at Philadelphia 76ers

    Well, that’s that then. Apparently the Sixers’ pitch to Andrew Bynum wasn’t quite good enough, and now he’s gone and signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Bynum will join the Cavaliers’ up-and-coming collection of top-five talent–#1 overall picks Kyrie Irving and Anthony Bennett, and #4s Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters–as a…

  11. A Look Behind the Scenes of the 76ers’ Free Agency Meeting with Andrew Bynum

    Jul 9, 2013, 9:58 AM EDT

    slideshow-062413-sixers-bynum-uspresswire

    With Dwight Howard and Josh Smith officially off the market, and Chris Paul long since committed to re-upping with the Clippers, the NBA’s off-season attention turns to our very own Andrew Bynum, the ultimate wildcard in this year’s free agency. Yahoo reports that Bynum has already been offered a two-year, $24 million offer from Cleveland…

  12. Michael Carter-Williams Shows the Good and the Bad in Sixers Summer League Debut

    Jul 7, 2013, 6:46 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference

    26/8/7 seems like a pretty good stat line for a professional debut, doesn’t it? That’s what Michael Carter-Williams posted today in his first game in uniform for the Philadelphia 76ers, as they faced off with the Houston Rockets in the opening contest of the Orlando Summer League. The Sixers lost the game 88-80 to a…

  13. Hey, the Sixers Got Royce White for Basically Nothing!

    Jul 6, 2013, 12:21 AM EDT

    NBA: Preseason-Memphis Grizzlies at Houston Rockets

    It wasn’t the biggest headline from the day in basketball free agency–hell, it might not have been the fifth-biggest–but the Sixers did make a minor splash today in the midst of the Dwight Howard sweepstakes finally reaching a resolution. The Houston Rockets needed to make a little additional room on their books to give Dwight…

  14. NBA Fines Spencer Hawes for Playing in Unsanctioned Game

    Jul 3, 2013, 12:38 PM EDT

    http://www.the700level.com/images/937373.jpg

    Spencer Hawes is a rebel. Just look at that headband. You know he used to run roughshod over Mr. Collins, smoking cigarettes in the bathroom while the rest of the team was busting it at practice, ditching early to ride his hog until sunset. Now that the 76ers have no authority figure directly above Hawes,…

  15. Don’t Know What Jrue Got Til It’s Gone: Jrue Holiday’s Top Ten Games As a 76er

    Jul 1, 2013, 10:21 AM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Indiana Pacers

    I started writing for the 700 Level in April 2009, wanting a forum to discuss the Sixers’ ’09 stretch run and subsequent post-season appearance, and not knowing anyone else in non-internet life that cared all that much. The Sixers’ playoff run was brief, but exciting–they lost to the Magic in six games, but took an…

  16. Doug Collins Wanted to Sign Kwame Brown for Five Years, $30 Million

    Jun 30, 2013, 11:17 AM EDT

    kwame

    Sam Hinkie might be some kind of genius, but he’s not a miracle worker. The lone black mark on an otherwise earth-shattering week for the 76ers was Kwame Brown exercising his player option, so get ready for another season of 1.9 points/3.4 rebounds per game at $2.9 million. Honestly, you should probably just be happy…

    Now this is a story all about how A Wildcat’s life got flipped-turned upside down… Now that the drama of the NBA Draft has slowed, we can focus on a small little detail that may have gotten lost in the shuffle—fashion.  With a new draft class comes a new era in the NBA Style Wars,…

  18. The Sixers’ Hinkification Has Commenced: What Does it Mean for the Rest of the Roster?

    Jun 28, 2013, 4:15 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Press Conference

    So the Sam Hinkie era has begun, and as the filmmakers behind Executive Decision did by killing off Steven Seagal in the first hour, our new General Manager has upped the stakes for the 2013-14 Sixers by making his first move the dismissal of the Sixers’ own biggest-name and most likeable character, Jrue Holiday. Now,…

  19. Khalif Wyatt Will Play with the Sixers in Orlando This Summer

    He didn’t get drafted Thursday night, but he did say last week that “June 27 won’t be the end of the world no matter which way it goes.” Well, it’s June 28, and Khalif Wyatt will play for the Sixers’ summer league team in Orlando, a source confirmed Friday. He is also expected to play…

    After a pre-draft media blackout and one hell of a shakeup on Thursday night, Sixers GM Sam Hinkie finally sat down to address the media a little after 1 a.m. on Friday. Hinkie prefaced by saying that he could not discuss certain specifics — like the one topic everyone wants to talk about, the trade…

  22. 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

    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…

  23. Sixers to Pick Three Times Tonight in Most Unsettled NBA Draft Ever

    Jun 27, 2013, 7:19 PM EDT

    DSCN0287

    #11, #35 and #41 for the Sixers at the NBA Draft tonight, expected to be one of the least predictable drafts in recent NBA history. Nobody knows for sure who’s going anywhere in the top ten, or if the teams currently in the top ten are the ones that are going to stay there, so…

  24. Something Important to Keep in Mind During the Sixers’ Draft Tomorrow

    Jun 26, 2013, 1:29 PM EDT

    NCAA Basketball: Indiana University-Cody Zeller Press Conference

    In ESPN draft guru Chad Ford’s latest (but probably not last) Mock Draft, he has the Sixers taking big men with all three of their picks: Indiana PF Cody Zeller at #11, Kansas C Jeff Withey at #35, and Illinois St PF Jackie Carmichael at #42. “The 76ers need size and athleticism in their frontcourt…

  25. Why Is Allen Iverson Talking about How He’s ‘Ready’ to Play Russian Roulette?

    Jun 25, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2013-06-25 at 1.49.42 PM

    I don’t know what’s going on with Allen Iverson. One minute, he’s broke. The next, he’s got plenty of money stashed away. Later, he’s kidnapped his own kids, except he didn’t kidnap his own kids. All this is sandwiched around a profile from the Washington Post that should have just about anyone concerned for the…
