Philadelphia 76ers: Their best chance for a win is tonight

The Philadelphia 76ers are on a long road trip for the next few games. They just lost to the Miami Heat in a close one that could have went the Sixers’ way if not for poorly timed turnovers and shots. Tonight the Sixers face the Minnesota Timberwolves, at Minnesota, in a matchup that could actually end with the Sixers winning their first game. The Minnesota Timberwolves may not...

Preview: Wolves vs. 76ers

The Minnesota Timberwolves initially appeared to be much improved defensively, but regression seems to have struck. Shutting down the hapless Philadelphia 76ers shouldn't be too difficult, however. Minnesota will still be seeking its first home victory Monday night against visiting Philadelphia. The Timberwolves (5-8) gave up 106.5 points on 48.7 percent shooting in 2014-15, both...

Philadelphia 76ers: Their biggest weakness

The Philadelphia 76ers have started off the season with a 0-13 start. This is expected from a team with mostly first and second year players. There is virtually no real NBA experience when you look at the 76ers, but that’s okay because they’re in “rebuild” mode. The Sixers have shown flashes of potential and their players have shown how good they could be in the future. However...

76ers' start puts them in the running for worst NBA franchise ever

Coach Brett Brown doesn't have many wins to show for his efforts. Kyle Terada USA TODAY SportsThe Philadelphia 76ers are very good at being very bad. It's by design, of course. The team is dedicated to a simple idea: To win an NBA title, you need an absolute superstar, and the best way to acquire such a player is with one of the top picks in the right draft.So the 76ers are tanking...

Unknown rookie T.J. McConnell impresses 76ers early

The Philadelphia 76ers have officially found another diamond in the rough in T.J. McConnell. McConnell has been very impressive thus far with a very depleted team and has actually taken over the starting spot at the point guard position for the Sixers. McConnell has found a spot on a team where all the players are young and everyone needs time to grow. Nov 11, 2015; Philadelphia...

McConnell Shines in First Start for the Sixers

How do the Philadelphia 76ers and general manager Sam Hinkie find these guys?  It’s going to be a question of the ages until he’s not the Sixers’ GM. Hinkie somehow found an NBA regular in Robert Covington two years ago — even if Covington’s 2016 has been abbreviated thus far due do his knee issues.  Covington will reportedly miss another two weeks after a setback in...

You want fireworks? How about snatching up Philadelphia's frontcourt?

After watching Boston's season opener Wednesday against the 76ers, one thing became pretty clear: Philadelphia has a damn good young frontcourt with Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor. One makes up for the other's shortcomings with Noel focused on the defensive end and Okafor looking like a 10-year vet with some of his post moves.That's a two-headed monster that Boston will have to contend...

Fade-Away: The hairstyle that could change basketball

There have been few moments in basketball history when aesthetics truly impacted the game. Most notably, the fusion of basketball with hip-hop in the late 80's and early 90's marked the biggest cosmetic change when the Fab Five, and then later Michael Jordan, started wearing baggy shorts. Later, with Allen Iverson, the hip-hop vibe found its quintessential basketball partner in...

Opening Month Will Require Patience

In year three of Sam Hinkie’s “process” I am fully expecting the 76ers to take a noticeable step forward on the court.  The additions of Jahlil Okafor, Nik Stauskas and Kendall Marshall as well as training camp surprise Christian Wood have provided Brett Brown with a much deeper roster than he has had in the last two seasons of this rebuilding process.  Additionally, with...

The Conversation: Joel Embiid AKA The Big Twitter Account

The Story News circulated early Friday morning about the ongoing (read: stagnant) saga of Philadelphia 76ers’ big man Joel Embiid. Multiple reports confirmed what we already knew: the former Kansas Jayhawk would miss the entire 2015-16 season due to his second foot surgery in two years. That didn’t surprise anybody. What did, however, were accusations from sources close to Embiid...

Sam Hinkie And The 76ers' Numbers Game

There aren't many things in the NBA more polarizing than Sam Hinkie and his team building strategies. The Philadelphia 76ers aren't the first team to attempt a slash-and-burn rebuild, but few have been so single-minded and so blatant about sacrificing the present on the altar of the future. The 76ers are the plot of "Major League" come to life, making moves almost as if they were...

A tribute to 76ers legend Darryl Dawkins

On Thursday afternoon, the NBA and the Philadelphia 76ers lost an ambassador for the game of basketball. They also lost a legend in Darryl Dawkins.

​ For the second consecutive year, the Philadelphia 76ers entered the draft with a high lottery pick (No. 3 in both seasons) and a truckload of second-round picks.
