The Philadelphia 76ers, they have returned to their losing ways.  It’s time for the fans that have not already done so; shift from 8th seed playoff mindset and digest the reality of the situation.

Superstars Have Too Much Power In The NBA


On Monday, a bombshell dropped in the NBA, with Kevin Durant leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder to sign with the Golden State Warriors.

People Love To Hate LeBron James

Lebron James will never be Michael Jordan; the comparison is one that I never cared to discuss personally. Different eras of basketball and really different players stylistically, but due to similarities of being able to dominate at their craft, the question of who is the greatest of all time will continue in debate.

Andrew Bynum Has Worn Out His Welcome In Cleveland

Remember when there was actually some debate about whether or not the Sixers should have taken another chance on Andrew Bynum?
Remember when there was a fear that if the Sixers let him go, he’d sign somewhere else, get healthy, and become one of the game’s top centers again?
Thank goodness Sam Hinkie was smart enough to […]

The Sixers Are Now Looking Towards The Future

Through his first few weeks on the job, Sixers’ general manager Sam Hinkie had been very quiet.
There hadn’t been much buzz coming out of Sixer headquarters. Hinkie hadn’t said much publicly about his vision for the team in 2013. There was little indication on what he’d do with pending unrestricted free agent Andrew Bynum. There […]
