Sixers Media Day: Dario Saric says a hot dog is not a sandwich

Saric gives the correct answer. Existing in relative seclusion over the last couple years, Dario Saric has been able to avoid the hard-hitting questions Philadelphia is known for.

Nerlens Noel calls Sixers frontcourt situation ‘silly’

The roster construction of the Philadelphia 76ers already seems peculiar from the outside looking in. Apparently, their very own players now think so too.

Time To Bring Back Black Jerseys

The Philadelphia 76ers are under a new era of talent, but it’s time to bring back an old look. Allen Iverson made his iconic look in Philadelphia 76ers gear, and it has created a type of mystique behind it. When you look at the black jerseys the Philadelphia 76ers rocked from 1997-2009, all you think […] Philadelphia 76ers: Time To Bring Back Black Jerseys - Section 215 - Section...

Why Nerlens Noel Was The Biggest Victim Of The Process

Ironically, Sam Hinkie's 'Process', and all of the compulsory ugliness and philosophical disputes it carried with it, might have been Nerlens Noel's fault. Philadelphia wasn't all that bad during the 12-13 season; the season before they drafted Noel, the season before Hinkie took over as general manager. The 76ers finished with a record of 34-48 that year. They had a young stud...

How Much Pressure is on Brett Brown?

“I won’t go there.” That’s what I answered when asked about the 76ers 2016 media luncheon (namely because I wasn’t invited).  However, this was also the phrase used by Head Coach Brett Brown at the aforementioned luncheon when asked for a win total goal for the upcoming season. The exchange between Brown and the media was symbolic of what the fourth-year lead man of the...

On the Waterfront: 76ers set for practice facility opening

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The dazzling rookie with the longest-lasting impact for the Philadelphia 76ers this season might not be Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid or Dario Saric: It could be the 125,000-square foot complex the Sixers expect to set the standard in the NBA.

Philadelphia 76ers honoring ’67 championship team with throwback jersey and more

Who doesn’t love a good alternate uniform? It is all the rage in sports today, but especially in the National Basketball Association, where retro looks get some modern touches or great uniforms of the past find ways to get just enough of an update to not look completely ridiculous. This season, there may not be a nicer alternate uniform in the Association than the ones that the...

Gregg Popovich on Tim Duncan’s retirement: ‘I have a hole in my gut’

Gregg Popovich without question is one of the most curmudgeonly coaches in all of sport. But even someone as gruff and cantankerous as the longtime San Antonio Spurs head coach cannot help but continue to feel a little a little sting over something as professionally and personally profound as Tim Duncan’s recent retirement. After all, the two spent nearly two decades working...

Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel trade rumors resurface

The Philadelphia 76ers are dead set on trading one of Jahlil Okafor or Nerlens Noel sooner rather than later. This isn’t necessarily a new development, but the NBA draft passed without either big man getting moved. The lack of a deal made it seem like the 76ers simply wanted too much in return for either. According to a new note by Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical, the 76ers...

How will the Philadelphia 76ers fare next season?

The Philadelphia 76ers are going to be entering the new NBA season with a fresh start with a group of new players and a whole different goal.

Adorable moppet brings weak stuff to the hole, Joel Embiid destroys it

Joel Embiid’s NBA career has been derailed by injuries. That’s been disappointing to a lot of people, but he’s reportedly healthy, and he’s still just 22, so there’s time for him to reclaim his status as an exciting prospect. This, though, is not a story about that. This is a story of the 76ers hosting a beach party. Fun, smiles, fan interaction, etc. Here’s a few choice...

Brett Brown: Joel Embiid is ‘truly on track’ to play in the preseason

It’s been nearly 30 months since Philadelphia 76ers big man Joel Embiid has played in a competitive game. That came as a member of the Kansas Jayhawks back in March of 2014. Now far removed from his most-recent foot surgery, skepticism regarding Embiid’s ability to play has been replaced with confidence in him contributing this season.
