Joel Embiid On The Shelf, As Sixers Win

The Sixers gave us the bad news early in the day yesterday.  Young phenom Joel Embiid’s knee is sore, so we learned he wasn’t going to play last night and will not play in the two games coming up.
It makes me realize and should also allow you to see that Embiid’s body is still adjusting […]

Joel Embiid Leads Sixers To 94-89 Win Over The Raptors

For years the Philadelphia 76ers were a joke.  You couldn’t give away a ticket to one of the their games, but the excellence of young, charismatic center Joel Embiid has changed things for our local basketball team.
Last night the Sixers behind a strong game by Embiid beat the Toronto Raptors, the team with the second […]

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.
Durant, who led the Thunder to a 3-1 series lead against the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals only to lose the final three games of the series, has just made an incredibly […]

The Ben Simmons/Joel Embiid Combo Could Be Epic

I’m excited about seeing the number one pick in the NBA draft Ben Simmons taking the court with the Sixers tremendously talented big man Joel Embiid.  You’ve got a 6’10” point forward, who has the handle to get to wherever he wants to on the floor and he can pass like a young Magic Johnson. […]

The Sixers Did The Right Thing With Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel

I think the Sixers did the right thing by not trading Nerlens Noel or Jahlil Okafor during this past week’s draft.  I would have understood them trading Noel as compared to Okafor because Noel isn’t much of a scorer.  Okafor has the potential to be a 20-point a game scorer.
Noel has the potential to be […]

Jeff Teague trade would be a mistake


Could the first move by new Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo be in the works? According to multiple NBA sources, the Sixers and Hawks are discussing a trade that would send center Nerlens Noel for veteran point guard Jeff Teague.  It’s also been reported that the Sixers would be including additional players in the deal, […]

Check Out The Ben Simmons-Brandon Ingram Opinions

This is a good time for the NBA with the huge game seven tonight with the Golden State Warriors against Oklahoma City.  There’s a great series yet to be played after this game tonight when LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers battle either Golden State or OKC.
Here in Philadelphia there are two debates going strong. […]

Ben Simmons Isn’t A Philly Guy

I don’t think Ben Simmons is the player the Sixers should draft with the to pick.  He comes across as being cool and unemotional.  There’s no doubt that the young man is very talented, but he will have problems here in Philly with that cool attitude.  His coolness will be no problem in Los Angeles […]

It’s Either Ben Simmons or Brandon Ingram For The Sixers

The 76ers got what they wanted last night or was it yesterday afternoon, depending on what you think of Dkembe Mutombo, who let the cat of the bag yesterday.
It’s either Ben Simmons or Brandon Ingram for the Sixers with the number one pick in this year’s NBA Draft.
Simmons looks like a monster at his age, […]

Sam Hinkie Writes A 13-Page “Victim” Letter On The Way Out

It came out of no where as 76ers President & GM Sam Hinkie resigned and Brian Colangelo, who is the son of team Chairman Jerry Colangelo and two-time NBA Executive of the Year, will take his place.
Sixers owner Josh Harris released this statement last night.
“This evening, Sam Hinkie notified the organization that he has elected […]
