  1. The Dog Days Are Over: Sixers thump Pistons, losing streak and bad times done forever

    Mar 29, 2014, 10:48 PM EDT

    Hip Hop

    It’s over. 26 games and exactly two months since the 76ers last experienced the joy of finishing a basketball game with more points than the dudes wearing the other unis, the Sixers are once again winners, triumphing over the Detroit Pistons tonight in front of a very appreciative Wells Fargo Center. The losing streak is…

  2. The Sixers lost obviously but DAMN if Tony Wroten didn’t break some ankles [VIDEO]

    Mar 13, 2014, 7:55 AM EDT


    The Sixers put another notch in the loss column on Wednesday night when they fell 115-98 to the Kings. That makes it, let me check… one, two, three, four… eighteen straight losses for your 76ers. They can tie the franchise longest losing streak of 20 on Saturday night against Memphis if they fall on Friday…

  3. So that happened: Sixers lose to Clippers by 45, make case for NBA relegation

    Feb 10, 2014, 8:59 AM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Los Angeles Clippers

    It’s not often as a basketball writer you get the privilege of saying that not only did your team just lose by 45, but it wasn’t nearly as close as the 123-78 final score made it seem. There’s probably been a basketball game before where a team trailed by the score of 89-33–maybe even a…

  4. Video: Tony Wroten hits 60+ foot buzzer beater for second game in a row

    Feb 8, 2014, 8:57 AM EDT

    Feb 7, 2014; Philadelphia, PA, USA; Philadelphia 76ers guard Tony Wroten (8) hits a three point shot as time expires in the third quarter against the Los Angeles Lakers at the Wells Fargo Center. The Lakers defeated the Sixers 112-98. Mandatory Credit: Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

    For the second game in a row, Tony Wroten hit a rather impressive 3/4 court shot to end the third quarter. Earlier in the week, Wroten hit a 60 footer (video) in a loss to the Boston Celtics. On Friday night, he did it again, this time banking a 62 footer in in a loss…

  5. Four gorgeous Tony Wroten passes from last night’s Sixers-Clippers game

    Dec 10, 2013, 3:13 PM EDT

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Philadelphia 76ers

    Brett Brown had a good quote about Tony Wroten earlier in the season about how Wroten might make the most incredible pass you’ve ever seen in your life, and then the next one will be off someone’s foot. That’s T-Wrote for you this Sixers season–he takes your breath away one minute, only to break your…

  6. Guess who’s back for the Hawks against the Sixers tonight?

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Cleveland Cavaliers

    It feels like many Sixers teams ago since Lou Williams was our first man off the bench–even if he had resigned with the Sixers in the summer of 2012, he probably would have been traded by now anyway. But in a way, it feels like he’s still buried on the bench somewhere, because he’s played…

  7. One, two, three four five ridiuclous wins for the Sixers after absurd Rockets OT victory

    Nov 13, 2013, 10:53 PM EDT

    NBA: Houston Rockets at Philadelphia 76ers

    How about this for a lead: Tonight, in his first-ever start in the NBA (filling in for MCW and his bad arches), Tony Wroten–the point guard the Sixers bought from Memphis for a couple free tickets to the Please Touch Museum–racked up a triple-double, with 18 points, 11 dimes and ten boards, easily setting career…

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

    Oct 24, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams represent the Sixers' future? But does Evan Turner? We're about to find out. (USA Today Images)

    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…

  9. Tony Wroten made a YouTube movie about the Sixers’ young rap group

    Oct 23, 2013, 12:44 PM EDT


    The 2013-2014 Philadelphia 76ers may only have something like six actual NBA players (says Brett Brown), but at least they have a rap group, ammirite?!? Shit this is gonna be a long season. No, really. Apparently some of the youngsters on the Sixers roster including Michael Carter-Williams and Tony Wroten have formed a rap group…

  10. Numbers of Note from the Sixers’ pre-season

    Oct 18, 2013, 12:42 PM EDT

    NBA: Preseason-Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers

    We’re over halfway done with the Sixers’ exhibition season, and while it’s not necessarily worth going too deep into the analysis for each and every game at this point–especially when they lose by 56 combined points over the course of two contests–there are definitely some trends still worth noting. Here’s some of the numbers, good…

  11. Sixers hang in second pre-season game, lose to Thunder despite hot shooting

    Oct 8, 2013, 6:11 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Oklahoma City Thunder

    The Philadelphia 76ers can only hope that in three or four years they’re anywhere close to where the Oklahoma City Thunder are as a team and a franchise, but as they say, on any given pre-season Tuesday night in Manchester (at a building called the Phones 4u Arena??). Anyway, the Sixers held tough against the…

  12. Take It On the Run: Up-tempo Sixers narrowly defeat Bilbao Spain in pre-season opener

    Oct 7, 2013, 9:43 AM EDT

    sixers preseason

    Whoo. You might have needed to catch your breath a bit after that surprisingly suspenseful and absolutely exhausting-looking pre-season opener for the Philadelphia Sixers in Bilbao, Spain, in which the Liberty Ballers managed to just escape a loss with a fourth-quarter surge to take the lead, and then a couple clutch Spencer Hawes free throws…

  13. Tony Wroten, James Anderson and the new look Sixers in the first week of training camp

    Oct 1, 2013, 12:22 PM EDT

    NBA: Philadelphia 76ers-Media Day

    The Philadelphia 76ers have descended upon the Philadelphia Center for Osteopathic Medicine, meaning training camp is officially underway. The new-look Sixers will play their first pre-season game on Oct. 6th (though they’ll be going all the way to Bilbao, Spain for that one) and will debut at the Wells Fargo Center about a week after…

  14. Tony Wroten Attempts to Top Spencer Hawes’ Summer Pro-Am Dominance

    Aug 26, 2013, 2:50 PM EDT

    NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Memphis Grizzlies

    The Sixers must be attempting to stockpile their roster with NBA players who simply dominate the summer pro-am circuit. That’s probably a good thing for the Winless For Wiggins crowd. First it was Spencer Hawes dropping 58 a couple of weeks ago and now it’s newly acquired AU-mancrush Tony Wroten who dazzled with an array…

  15. The Sixers Got Point Guard Tony Wroten for Nothing And That’s a Cool Thing

    Aug 22, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

    NBA: Brooklyn Nets at Memphis Grizzlies

    With Michael Carter-Williams the first and only entry on the Sixers’ current depth chart at point guard–seriously, check it out–it was highly probable that the Sixers were gonna pick up another guy to play the one before off-season’s end. You figured it would probably be an experienced journeyman type, like an Earl Watson or Jamaal…
