Was The Holiday Trade The Right Move For The Sixers?

Did the Sixers invite basketball back into Philadelphia after the 2013 NBA draft?  They were clearly the most active and aggressive team with both their current and future status as an NBA franchise.  They sent their best player in Jrue Holiday packing.  Coming off his best season in his young career, Holiday was the one […]

Analyzing Doug Collins’ Farewell News Conference

The first of many moves (I would think and hope so) for the Sixers started with Collins “officially” resigning as the Sixers coach. I figure to give Sixers fans (if there is any still left besides a handful of us) some of the better quotes from the presser. Let’s begin…
Collins on when he knew he was “out” […]

Around The NBA: How Far Can Denver’s Depth Take Them?

In the George Karl era, the Denver Nuggets have seemingly always been an enigma. Led by a coach with the basketball philosophy of a team being greater than the sum of its parts, with emphasis on ball movement, shrewd defense, and not necessarily deep, but strict rotations. Contrary to the win-by-committee ideology of Karl, Nugget head coach […]

Andrew Bynum Headed To Weeks Of Therapy and Crutches

The Philadelphia 76ers just released a statement about the surgery which center Andrew Bynum underwent bilateral arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday.  They let us know that the procedure was done by Dr. David Altchek with the Hospital for Special Surgery.

Bynum whom 76ers head coach Doug Collins asked fans to pray for the other day, will start […]

Around The NBA: Will The Return Of Derrick Rose Make Chicago Contenders?

With barely a whimper, the NBA’s trade deadline has come and gone. With most all teams content to stand pat and wait and see what impact returning pieces (Danny Granger), late-blooming seasons (Los Angeles, Dallas, Brooklyn), and the financial constraints of the CBA’s now imposing luxury tax will have, the biggest waves resulting from the […]

Notes From The 76ers’ 88-69 Loss To Indiana

The Philadelphia 76ers had their three-game winning streak snapped on Wednesday night, falling 88-69 to the Indiana Pacers. Their record drops to 21-27.

It’s been a rough ride for the Sixers this year, but this game could be a sign that things could get uglier than they’ve been pretty fast. The absence of Thaddeus Young took […]

Around The NBA: Wade’s Rest Will Benefit Miami In The Long-Run

At the risk of stating what you already know, LeBron James has won a championship. Seemingly overnight, he has wrapped his third MVP season up with a bow and exercised most all of his “clutch gene” demons and gone from sports culture pariah to grounded family man who still has enough of a hairline to make […]

Around The NBA: Mike D’Antoni Faces Uphill Battle In LA

Five games into the 2012-13 season, the landscape of basketball in Los Angeles changed dramatically as Mike Brown was relieved of his coaching duties by the Laker organization. That appears to be a very polite way of saying Mike Brown got canned. The Laker PR department seems dead set on saying that this drastic, yet […]

NBA Season Preview: The Northwest Division

Denver Nuggets: There’s no denying that the Nuggets will continue to have one of the most dynamic and entertaining offenses in the league and George Karl’s teams have always been notorious for their depth and reliance, almost to a fault, on a 12 man rotation. The Nugget’s ability to turn the corner will be determined […]

2012 NBA Season Preview: The Central Division

The Central Division finds even its top teams in a state of transition.
Chicago Bulls: The championship hopes this team had last season were shattered in an instant when Derrick Rose drove to the basket during what some would consider garbage time of a first round victory over the Sixers and tore his ACL. While perhaps […]
