Sixers Dancers

  1. Here’s a Sixers dancer doing cheerleader moves in front of a carnival game on the boardwalk

    Oct 4, 2013, 1:19 PM EDT


    You may have seen the feature on Deadspin yesterday about “Athletes Among Us,” a photo series of athletes doing regular sporty type things in everyday life settings. Pretty interesting stuff like a bunch of Olympic rowers in the middle of a pool on floats or an NFL football player tackling his wife into bed. The…

    May 1, 2013, 1:36 AM EDT

    Quick refresher: Andrew Bynum is a professional basketball player in the NBA who didn’t play for the Philadelphia 76ers this season.

    Alas, he appears to be doing what any sensible human being who made something in the area of an eight figure paycheck over the last year or so. He’s traveling the world.

    Jan 2, 2013, 1:09 PM EDT

    The New Year is all about reflecting on the past, looking forward to the future, and according to my wife: not shaving your legs until mid March/early April. So seeing that this is the time for Best Of columns (and because I couldn’t think of a decent thread for this post), here are my Year-End…

  5. Photo Gallery: The Sixers Dancers Are Feeling the Holiday Spirit

    Dec 24, 2012, 2:20 PM EDT

    The Internet may be shutting down early this eve so people can rush to the liquor store/beer distributor to pick up a last minute spirit to help ensure your Uncle Tony is good and socially lubricated at your family Christmas party, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t time for a Christmas-themed Sixers Dream Team photo…

  6. The Sixers Have a 17.8 Chance of Winning the NBA Championship?!?

    Jan 25, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    John Hollinger released some updated playoff odds based on his own power rankings today that are pretty intriguing for Sixers fans. Yeah, we’ve watched this team all season and see how they can beat the crap out of piss poor teams like the Wizards, and they can hang with solid teams like the Denver Nugets, but in the back of our mind we all don’t think they’re quite ready to contend for an NBA title just yet. Right?

  9. Breaking: Sixers’ Dancers Flight Delayed, Luggage Maybe Missing

    Jun 16, 2011, 10:58 AM EDT

    The Sixers Dance Team had the nice fortune of traveling to China to check out the sites and show off some of their dance moves to the rest of the world. They were kind enough to make a video of their adventures showing that their flight was delayed, their luggage may have been lost, and…

  10. The Only Way Is Up: Sixers Look to Bounce Back from Soul-Crushing Excoriation

    Feb 22, 2010, 5:49 PM EDT

    And things were looking so up for the Sixers just 24 hours ago.

After last night's game…

  11. Last Night’s Sixers Loss In Doug Collins’ Words, Christmas Shopping a Distraction

    Feb 22, 2010, 12:57 PM EDT

    "I looked at our coaches and I said 'our guys, they're just not there tonight.' For whatever reason, we just weren't there. I don't know if it was a couple nights in between games in the same city. And just guys… that time of the year where you're out Christmas shopping and getting stuff taken…

  14. Science Cheerleader Darlene Cavalier Talks Science Literacy, Poker with Michael Jordan

    Aug 28, 2009, 11:00 AM EDT

    This is a guest post from Christopher Wink, a co-founder of Technically Philly, an online news startup that covers technology and innovation in Philadelphia and is nearly as much fun as cheerleaders. I wonder if Darlene Cavalier was as interested in science back in 1992 when Armon Gilliam got her into both post-fight parties after…

    Feb 10, 2009, 4:29 PM EDT

    What better way to end my lazy day of blogging than with a photo of Sixers cheerleader Melanie Fitzpatrick who apparently appears in the swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated. (That’s a magazine made out of glossy paper that you purchase in a store on a shelf) You can see more pics of Melanie at…

  17. Video: Sixers Dancers Show Off Their Assets in Denim

    Feb 1, 2009, 10:10 AM EDT

    “Denim is ground zero for a great holiday season. Stocking stuffer anyone?” I think she meant the jeans. Also, I’m curious. Who do you think the target audience for such a video is? Some extremely uncool Philadelphia lady or some extremely uncool Philadelphia dude who reads a sports blog? And people, if you want to…

  18. Sixers Take On Iverson-Free Memphis Squad

    Jan 20, 2009, 5:29 PM EDT

    Just a few weeks ago, Philly fans had tonight's basketball contest with the Memphis Grizzlies highlighted as a game to look forward to due to a certain scorer coming back to face the team he made his bones with for all of those years. Well, the Allen Iverson in Memphis experiment was even more short-lived…

  20. Morning Extras: When The Spectrum Goes, Where Go Its Tenants?

    Jan 14, 2008, 6:56 AM EDT

    When logging on to yesterday I was greated with a lovely photo asking me to meet the Sixers Dancers. It seems the Sixers need to do something to get people in the stands, and close up encounters with the dance team may translate to a few more courtside sales. Hey, lonely men can dream…while…

  21. McNabb: ‘The Time Is Now’

    Aug 7, 2007, 4:30 AM EDT

    That’s exactly the attitude you want your franchise QB to have.  He’s not making any guarantees, he’s not making excuses for the past, he’s simply showing confidence in the team he has around him and telling them all that the time to win is now. "Not that we’re trying to say the window is closing,…
