76ers Draft Strategy: Did they win by losing?

With the 3rd pick in this year’s NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers have an interesting, yet easily fixed dilemma. Ideally, the 76ers would have wanted to nab the top spot in this year’s draft but dropping in at #3 overall isn’t such a bad fit either. The top two picks in the draft are, almost undoubtedly, going to be Karl-Anthony Towns and Jahlil Okafor, not necessarily in...

Philadelphia 76ers: Draft options post-lottery

Last Tuesday, on May 19, the Philadelphia 76ers received the third overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft Lottery. It was a result that was expected, and certainly left many fans satisfied as all nightmare scenarios were avoided. The last thing that an 18-64 team wants is to acquire a pick outside of the top three; a reality that the division rival Knicks suffered as they fell to the...

In defense of 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie

The Philadelphia 76ers did not win the NBA Draft lottery. Cue the laugh-out-loud op-eds in which holier than thou columnists mock Sam Hinkie for the futility of his strategy because, God forbid, he actually did something different. We get it, Deadspin, you’re the smartest guys in the room and you need all of us to know it, but maybe let a guy have more than two seasons on the...

The History of No. 3

Next month, the 76ers have the number three overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.  All of us here at Philadunkia are hoping and praying, just like all of you, that Sam Hinkie will select a player that has a huge impact on this franchise for years to come (cough…D’Angelo Russell..cough) and one would think that type of player would be very easy to find and draft at No. 3. However...

Philadelphia 76ers: The emergence of Robert Covington

As the 2014-15 NBA season comes to an end and free agency approaches, the Philadelphia 76ers must evaluate their roster on who they need to keep and let go. For the moment, 76er fans have conceded that young prospects Nerlens Noel, who finished third in Rookie of Year voting this year, and highly touted Center Joel Embiid, who was out for season due to injury. Surely, both of these...

Draft Lottery: Iverson > Noel

One way or another, the 76ers will continue to add to their young core in this summer’s NBA Draft.  Depending on how the ping-pong balls bounce in the upcoming Draft Lottery, the Sixers could own as few as one or as many as three 1st round selections at the 2015 NBA Draft.  The organization obviously needs a lot of luck in said Lottery.

76ers Talk: Brett Brown’s Future

For the Philadelphia 76ers to have so many relevant injuries (Tony Wroten, Joel Embiid, Pierre Jackson), be devoid of any real NBA talent, and still play the way they did this season was a small miracle. Not only that, but the roster itself has been a revolving door with a whopping 31 players on payroll for this year. No, that was not a typo.  The 76ers, an NBA team, had 31 players...

Thomas Robinson Finds His Niche

​ A few months ago, I wrote that I believed former lottery pick Thomas Robinson still had the talent to recover from his label as a bust—if only he is signed into the right team situation, which had yet to occur in his NBA career. Mere weeks after I wrote the article, Robinson was traded. He went from his somewhat stable home in Portland over to the Denver Nuggets—mostly...
