  1. Exit Interviews: Evaluating the 2013-’14 Philadelphia 76ers

    Apr 23, 2014, 12:46 PM EDT

    It’s an unusual team that leaves you with such a feeling of confidence and optimism after losing 77% of their games in the regular season, but such was the story of the 2013-’14 Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers were very bad indeed, but they were bad with a purpose, and frankly, they could (and probably should)…

  2. Evan Turner trade to Indiana caps intriguing, frustrating day for Sixers at deadline

    Feb 20, 2014, 5:36 PM EDT

    Danny Granger, Evan Turner

    Well, that was unexpected. With the clock showing 0:00 at the trade deadline, the Sixers scored a game-changer in bonus time, sending Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen to the Pacers in exchange for Danny Granger and a future second-round pick. With the NBA world leveled by the Woj Bomb–don’t you ever doubt that man Adrian–we were…

  3. Bye Bye Spencer: Hawes gone to Cleveland for two second-rounders and frontcourt scraps

    Feb 20, 2014, 11:44 AM EDT

    NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at Philadelphia 76ers

    Well, the first domino has fallen in our First Annual Sam Hinkie Day, better known as the 2014 trade deadline, and it’s a tall and righty-leaning one. Spencer Hawes, starting center for the Philadelphia 76ers since he was traded here by Sacramento for Samuel Dalembert four summers ago, has been jettisoned to the Cleveland Cavaliers. In…

  4. If This Is It: Sixers blown out by Cleveland in possible last game with current core

    Feb 18, 2014, 10:03 PM EDT

    NBA: Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers

    Well, it’s unlikely one game is gonna make that much of a difference, but Sam Hinkie is gonna find his job at this trade deadline that much tougher tonight after his Philadelphia 76ers got wrecked by a suddenly resurgent Cleveland Cavaliers squad, dropping this one by the final score of 114-85. It was a night…

  5. The Philadelphia 76ers at the Trade Deadline: A speculative guide

    Feb 17, 2014, 4:10 PM EDT

    NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Philadelphia 76ers

    Tomorrow night’s game against Cleveland may seem like just another crappy, unwatchable Eastern Conference game for the Philadelphia 76ers, but it could actually be a somewhat historic game for Sixers basketball. That’s because just two days later, this Thursday the 20th, is when the NBA hits the trade deadline–the last chance for GM Sam Hinkie…

  6. Do any of the Sixers have a legitimate case for making the All-Star team?

    Jan 2, 2014, 12:49 PM EDT

    NBA: San Antonio Spurs at Philadelphia 76ers

    After his fine performance last night against the Nuggets in Denver, sideline reporter Molly Sullivan asked Philadelphia 76ers breakout performer (of sorts) Evan Turner about his All-Star chances. The question took me by surprise, but not Evan, who clearly had been given the question some thought himself, and encouraged the Sixers’ PR peons to get…

  7. Looking back at Philadelphia pro athletes’ Movember mustaches

    With another Movember in the books as of last Saturday, it’s time for The 700 Level to take a look back at some of the fine mustaches that adorned the upper-lip areas of your favorite Philadelphia pro athletes. Yes, mostly Flyers are featured. Sorry. A relentless search of the interwebs and social media didn’t produce…

  8. THEY DIDN’T DO IT AGAIN TELL ME THE SIXERS DIDN’T DO IT AGAIN

    Nov 23, 2013, 12:25 AM EDT

    NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Philadelphia 76ers

    They did it again. The f’ing Sixers. Evan friggin’ Turner. SPENCER GODDAMN HAWES. They did it again, and I don’t know why we’re still even surprised at this point. I know always say this game was over, guys, you won’t believe how over this game was before it wasn’t over. But c’mon. THIS GAME WAS…

  9. Let’s talk fake Sixers trades: Evan and Spencer edition

    Nov 15, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT

    evan.spencer.hawes.turner

    Nine games into the season, and Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes have done exactly what we wanted them to do to start the year: They’ve played their way into potential trade-chip status. Evan’s had a couple rough shooting nights recently–though let’s not forget that a rough shooting night for Evan used to mean shooting 3-15…

  10. Examining how Michael Carter-Williams is setting the league on fire

    Nov 4, 2013, 3:17 PM EDT

    Michael Carter-Williams

    Through his first three pro games, Michael Carter-Williams is averaging 20.7 points on 47% shooting, with about nine assists, five rebounds and four steals. Those numbers aren’t just impressive for a little-hyped rookie, they’re impressive for absolutely anybody. Carter-Williams’ current PER of 29.2 is nearly six whole points higher than that of four-time league MVP…

  11. PHI 107, CHI 104: The Sixers did it again. The beautiful bastards did it again.

    Nov 3, 2013, 6:27 AM EDT

    NBA: Chicago Bulls at Philadelphia 76ers

    We’re in uncharted waters here, people. Once is a fluke, twice is a coincidence, three times is a trend. Three nights after beating the two-time-champion Miami Heat and just one night after taking down the resurgent Wizards in Washington, the Sixers moved to 3-0 last night against the Chicago Bulls–maybe the only team in the…

  12. 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…

  13. Spencer Hawes (Yes, Our Spencer Hawes) Drops 58 Points in Pro-Am Game

    Spencer Hawes posterizes the competition. Spencer Hawes runs the floor, dribbling through traffic – behind-the-back seamlessly into a crossover – then stops and pops for three. Spencer Hawes hits the turnaround jumper, the fadeaway, and the up-and-under. Spencer Hawes protects the rim, announcing to the world they better get that garbage out of his house.…

  14. Spencer Hawes Named His New Puppy ‘Reagan’ and OMG It’s Cute

    That is one adorable puppy, Spencer. If I were Spencer and had a puppy, I’d consider naming him “Dick.” Or maybe “Batman.” My new puppy, Reagan. http://t.co/dFSXBUyQN8 — Spencer Hawes (@spencerhawes00) July 16, 2013

  15. NBA Fines Spencer Hawes for Playing in Unsanctioned Game

    Jul 3, 2013, 12:38 PM EDT

    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,…

  16. Spencer Hawes Is Not Happy with This Morning’s Ruling, Calls it ‘a Joke’

    Jun 26, 2013, 12:45 PM EDT

    supreme-court

    That’s right, Oregon will lose three total scholarships over the next three years and Chip Kelly was hit with a show-cause penalty, which semi-bans him — but only kind of — from college football for the next 18 months. It’s serious stuff. Geoff Mosher has more on the sanctions here, and according to the Oregonian…
