  1. Cost of Doing Business: An unprecedented Sixers season merits unprecedented consequences

    Mar 27, 2014, 3:04 PM EDT

    mullens

    The Sixers go for number 26 tonight. It’s been almost exactly two months since Evan Turner hit that tough runner in Boston to beat the Celtics, 95-94. Since then, the Sixers have played 25 games and have lost each and every one of them. None of the games have gone to overtime. Until that wacky…

  2. The Unstoppable Force Meets, Like, the Most Movable Object Ever: A state of the union before Sixers-Spurs

    Mar 24, 2014, 3:04 PM EDT

    37 games. That’s the disparity in win streaks between the Philadelphia 76ers, who have dropped 24 straight, and the San Antonio Spurs, who have rolled through their last 13 games, at the moment. It’s a difference in current franchise realities that should be rather prominently on display when the two teams face off tonight in…

  3. Sixers blown out by NBA’s worst, but Thaddeus Young is a beautiful human being

    Feb 24, 2014, 10:03 PM EDT

    NBA: Milwaukee Bucks at Philadelphia 76ers

    11 straight losses, ten straight at home, and this was by far the worst of them. A 43-point second-quarter for the Milwaukee Bucks–yes, those Milwaukee Bucks, proud owners of a now-11-45 record, the lone bastards remaining that the Phiadelphia 76ers haven’t been able to outtank–had Malik Rose crying in his coffee, and made it an…

  4. The 2013-14 76ers: So what’s left, exactly?

    Feb 21, 2014, 1:03 PM EDT

    nerlens.noel

    There are 27 games remaining in the Philadelphia 76ers’ 2013-14 season, and by all estimations, it should be a long 27. Coming off a nine-game losing streak, the Sixers seem pretty unlikely to turn that around anytime soon, now missing two starters in Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes and a third rotation guy in Lavoy…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. Sixers lose, but Thaddeus Young gives us a couple highlights for our troubles

    Jan 24, 2014, 9:46 PM EDT

    NBA: Toronto Raptors at Philadelphia 76ers

    Whatever positive momentum the Philadelphia 76ers carried over from their win in New York on Wednesday fizzled by the second half of tonight’s home game against the Atlantic-leading Toronto Raptors, whose backcourt of All-Star hopefuls basically beat the Sixers on their lonesome tonight. The Sixers played the Raptors tough for two-and-a-half quarters, but the offense…

  8. 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…

  9. We should put Thaddeus Young’s name in trade rumors more often

    Dec 30, 2013, 10:42 AM EDT

    NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Philadelphia 76ers

    You never know how players are going to react to trade rumors. Sometimes the ego-bruising involved in being mentioned in them at all takes a while to recover from, as might the disappointment of such a deal ultimately not coming to fruition. The latter seemed it could have been a particular worry for our fed-up…

  10. Thaddeus Young: Not traded, playing tonight, probably alongside Michael Carter-Williams

    Dec 20, 2013, 5:13 PM EDT

    Image (1) thaddeusyoungsneakers.jpg for post 485151

    Rough 48 hours for Thaddeus Young. Well, rough week if you extend to include the Philadelphia 76ers’ blowout in Brooklyn, and rough year if you…well, let’s not rehash the whole Megillah. But the last few days have likely been especially trying, as Young’s name was mentioned repeatedly in trade rumors for disenchanted Rockets center Omer…

  11. What do the Sixers want with Rockets center Omer Asik?

    Dec 9, 2013, 12:22 PM EDT

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Utah Jazz

    Dec. 15th is a date worth keeping an eye on for Philadelphia 76ers fans, and/or general Sam Hinkie acolytes. It’s the date at which free agents signed over the course of the previous off-season can first be dealt, greatly expanding the pool of tradeable players. Naturally, it’s also the date at which league-wide trade talk…

  12. Notes from a week of losing Sixers basketball

    Dec 2, 2013, 1:42 PM EDT

    While you were out tryptophanning it up this Thanksgiving season, the Philadelphia 76ers played a trio of basketball games, and like a good little bottoming-out basketball team, they lost all three of them. As I wrote earlier, this was the start to a pretty key stretch of the season for the 76ers, one that saw…

  13. Everything You Need to Know About Sam Hinkie’s Ability to Blow Up the Sixers Next Summer

    Sep 4, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    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…

  14. 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,…

  16. Reviewing the Ten Biggest Questions for the Sixers Off-Season with Michael Levin

    Jun 19, 2013, 1:16 PM EDT

    NBA: Golden State Warriors at Philadelphia 76ers

    We’ve been spending the off-season counting down the ten biggest questions facing the Sixers as they transition from the Doug Collins era into a rather uncertain future. Now that we’re done the roll-out, we figured it was time to call on our old friend Michael Levin, of the excellent Sixers blog Liberty Ballers, and get…
