Sixers Finally Part Ways With Bryan Colangelo & HIs Wife

It took longer than everyone expected but finally, the Sixers and General Manager Bryan Colangelo have parted ways.  Colangelo’s wife Barbara Bottini took responsibility for the Twitter accounts that were critical of numerous 76ers players and which distributed sensitive information about the organization.
There’s no way the Sixers could have or should have kept Colangelo on […]

Sixers Must Make A Commitment To Play Defense

The threes weren’t falling last night for the Sixers, but it was their lack of consistency on the defensive side of the ball that doomed them.  Brett Brown and his troops must commit themselves to each other on the defensive side of the floor.  They must commit to each other that they will play hard […]

Sixers Should Make It Clear From The Start

The Sixers need to close this series out tonight against the Miami Heat.  They must exhibit the “killer instinct”.  I want them to jump on the Heat from the start to let them know this is going to end tonight.
They can’t play around with the Heat and let them leave Philadelphia with any “playoff life” […]

The Sixers Path To The NBA Finals Is Wide Open

We knew it was going to happen, but nobody expected the Philadelphia 76ers to be going to the NBA Finals in 2018, but it’s definitely possible as I look at the way the Eastern Conference playoffs at the moment. I’m not awed by LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers or the Toronto Raptors or the […]

If LeBron Came Here To Play, He Could Play Until 2030

I know many of you probably refuse to take the possibility of LeBron James coming here seriously, but I think there’s a good chance he could come to Philadelphia to play with the 76ers.  Ben Simmons is like a little brother to LeBron.  He mentors Simmons and owns the company that represents the young phenom. […]

Sixers’ Week In Review: Above .500 For First Time In Four Years

Over the last week, the Philadelphia 76ers went 3-0, improving to 5-4 on the season. Here’s some quick thoughts about the team’s last week of games.

Let’s start with the Houston game. What an impressive win on the road. The Sixers rose up to the challenge of getting revenge on the Rockets for their heartbreaking loss […]

Sixers Week In Review: Ben Simmons Continues To Shine


The Sixers finally made the right move, and shut down Markelle Fultz. It was painfully obvious that Fultz was laboring through the first three games of the year, and he was no good to them in his current state.
Ben Simmons…wow. Simmons has been turning heads left and right through his first six NBA games. Ben […]

Thoughts On The Sixers’ First Three Games


Ben Simmons has without a doubt been the brightest part of the Sixers’ first three games. Simmons has double-doubled in each match, and has also become the first player to start his first three games with 10 points, 10 rebounds, and five or more assists since Oscar Robertson.
Simmons has primarily stuck to driving towards the […]

Video: Sixers Lose To Celtics In Home Opener

I was frustrated watching the Sixers battle the Celtics last night at the Wells Fargo Center.  Their best player, center Joel Embiid was getting the ball at the top of the key time and time again.  I’m okay with that every now and then, but it makes no sense to give the ball to a […]

Video: Joel Embiid Has Good Start In Loss To The Wizards: 120-115

In the first game of the 2017-18 season, the Philadelphia 76ers came up short, 120-115 in a battle against the Washington Wizards. Surprisingly, the star of the game for the Sixers was Robert Covington, who scored 29 points and dropped seven three pointers.  He helped the Sixers keep it close all the way to the […]
