76ERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Philadelphia 76ers: Respect The Sixers!

Source: Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images North America) By Mike Elworth: Owner and Publisher/Hoopstuff… When I was writing my season expectations, I said that the Philadelphia 76ers wouldn’t win 10 games. Well they are at 18 and have a chance to double my expectations. I have written on my disgust for Sam Hinkie tanking, but this isn’t about him, this is about your coach Brett Brown...

Does Anyone Want to Win? 76ers vs Cavs: Behind the Box Score

Philadelphia 76ers (18-56) 86 Cleveland Cavaliers (48-27) 87 Box Score On Saturday night, Cleveland’s Quicken Loans Arena hosted a nail-biter of a game for the ages when Kentucky survived Notre Dame 68-66 in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament. It was one hell of a game, and though it may have been one of the more well-played games in the tournament, it was still characterized...

6 for the Final 9 of Tank 2.0

Last night, despite a super-human effort from emerging Rookie of the Year candidate Nerlens Noel (30 points; 14 boards; 70% shooting form the field), the 76ers lost their 55th contest of Tank 2.0.  Instead of analyzing the fact that Brett Brown’s squad missed their last 10 shots of the 3rd quarter last night or how they trailed the playoff bound Clippers by 32 during the final...

Robert Covington puts Andre Miller on a poster

The 76ers may not win a ton of games, but they do produce their fair share of highlights. Robert Covington is no stranger to that, and now, neither is Andre Miller. Hey Bobby, have you always treated your professors so poorly? The Sixers have so many athletes like Ish Smith—who threw that lob—€”Covington, Nerlens Noel, Jerami Grant, etc. that we're starting to see plays like...

JaVale McGee Remains Interested In Joining Playoff Contender

JaVale McGee still wants to play for a playoff contender, but his preference is to sign a deal only for the remainder of the season. McGee and the Boston Celtics were previously close to a deal, but talks fell apart when they were unable to agree upon the length. The Celtics wanted to have an option for the 15-16 season. McGee was waived by the Philadelphia 76ers before the deadline...

Remember when: Allen Iverson crossed up Michael Jordan and made him look silly (VIDEO)

Michael Jordan and Allen Iverson had some epic battles over the years when the Bulls and Sixers squared off. It seemed like Iverson would turn it up a bit and had some of his best career performances when matched up against the greatest NBA player of all time. Jordan often got the best of Iverson—reminiscent of what he did to all his opponents—but it wasn’t due to lack of...

Canaan-ball! Isaiah makes splash for Philadelphia 76ers

Weeks after Sam Hinkie doubled down on tanking, the Philadelphia 76ers have predictably continued their descent to the bottom of the standings. Their 2-9 record in the 11 games since the trade deadline has left them with the second worst in the league. The Sixers have perhaps over-performed their rock bottom expectations, beating the Hawks and the Wizards at the Wells Fargo Center while...

The Continuing Ascension of Nerlens Noel

Fly Nerlens FlyLast night in South Phillly, the most satisfying franchise in town -- yes, the tank-tastic 76ers, who at least seem to have a coherent plan and competent general management, unlike every other team that's local -- lost to the Bulls in overtime. Through injury and enforced rest, Chicago didn't have SG Jimmy Butler, PG Derrick Rose, PF Taj Gibson or C Joakim Noah, and...

The Sixers Are Pulling Off A Between The Legs Back Door Tank

Philadelphia 76ers: What to think about the trade deadline

Even if you’ve been living underneath a Patrick Star-esque rock for the past week, you probably still felt the aftershock resulting from the craziest NBA trade deadline in recent memory. Sam Hinkie and the Philadelphia 76ers were right in the thick of the madness, trading away both Michael Carter-Williams and K.J. McDaniels in separate deals, only moments before the 3 P.M. deadline...

Nobody on the 76ers is safe, including Joel Embiid

After dealing Michael Carter-Williams to the Milwaukee Bucks last week, it appears no player on the Philadelphia 76ers’ roster is safe — including players who have Rookie of the Year trophies on their mantles. Still, it’s probably safe to assume that Joel Embiid wouldn’t be included in such talks, as the only thing more shameful Article found on: Next Impulse Sports
