  1. Wednesday And-1 links: Who are the NBA’s best floppers?

    Mar 21, 2012, 11:10 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Here is our daily look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Who are the NBA’s best floppers? These guys. But Chris Paul is really…

  2. Report: Sixers buy out contract of Andres Nocioni

    Mar 17, 2012, 1:33 AM EDT

    Andres Nocioni, Jimmer Fredette, DeMarcus Cousins

    The 76ers had moved past Andres Nocioni — he had touched the court just once in the last seven games, and that was for a four-minute stretch. He’s played 56 minutes all season. So it shouldn’t come as a shock that the Sixers have bought out his contract Friday, as reported by Dei Lynam at…

  3. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls grab top spot by the horns

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:33 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah,

    The top three are pretty much set, it’s just a matter of who is playing the best among them at this moment. Right now it’s Chicago. The bottom three are pretty much locked in, too, but the Bobcats have really grabbed hold of the last spot and made it their own. 1. Bulls (31-8, last…

  4. NBA Season Preview: Philadelphia 76ers

    Dec 15, 2011, 6:45 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Jrue Holiday

    Last season: 41-41, resulting in a competitively uncompetitive first-round loss to the Miami Heat. Head Coach: Doug Collins, who still wants to be your friend. Need a ride to the airport, Thaddeus? He’s your guy. Need someone to help you move, Elton? Please, you don’t even have to ask. Dog-sitting? His pleasure! Creating a stable…

  5. Top 10 free agents when the lockout ends

    Nov 26, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Denver Nuggets

    On December 9th, assuming the deal is approved by both sides, players will re-enter training facilities for the first time since last spring to being working towards the NBA season. At the same time, NBA free agency for the 2011-2012 season will open, and all hell will break loose as teams scramble to sign their…

  6. Winderman: NBA has its own one-and-done players

    Jan 6, 2011, 3:12 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Denver Nuggets

    So just over a year after arriving, Ron Artest apparently is having issues with the Lakers. Does this surprise anybody? Or could it be that Artest becomes just the latest one-and-done example in this league, a player who is everything as advertised upon arrival in terms of basketball skills and then becomes everything as advertised…

  7. Evan Turner out of the Sixers starting lineup

    Dec 3, 2010, 3:51 PM EDT

    Evan Turner, Anthony Parker

    Evan Turner is still adjusting, still trying to find his way. Especially since the return of Andre Iguodala. For the last dozen games he was getting the chance to figure it all out as part of the starting lineup for Philadelphia, but no more. Tonight he comes off the bench and Jodie Meeks or Andres…

  8. Iguodala, still nursing Achilles, will sit Tuesday against Cavaliers

    Nov 16, 2010, 3:07 PM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andre Iguodala has a lingering right Achilles tendon issue that has kept him out of a couple of games and some practices lately. You can add Tuesday night’s Sixers/Cavaliers matchup to the list. He had to leave practice early because of soreness Monday and will now sit out Tuesday, according to the Associated Press. Andres…

  9. Andres Nocioni fined $25K for throwing mouthpiece

    Nov 11, 2010, 6:55 PM EDT

    Andres Nocioni,

    Frankly, this whole story is gross. Andres Nocioni, in frustration during the Sixers loss to the Thunder Wednesday night, threw his mouthpiece into the stands. Then apparently he wanted it back, and a Sixers employee had to go retrieve it, according to Liberty Ballers. Thursday the league announced a $25,000 fine for Nocioni for throwing…

  10. Challenge in Philadelphia: learning how to win

    Oct 31, 2010, 2:29 PM EDT

    DCollins_Sixers

    Interesting note today from Kate Fagan at Philly.com on this year’s 0-3 Philadelphia 76ers. Sixers coach Doug Collins offered this statistic after the game (which he said he shared with his team as well): No player on the Sixers roster has a winning record as a professional. That actually struck me as quite amazing. Obviously…

  11. Andres Nocioni will sit out World Championships

    Aug 26, 2010, 12:03 PM EDT

    Andres Nocioni was expected to be a cornerstone for Argentina, one of the world basketball powers, at the World Championships in Turkey. But he sprained his ankle on July 31, and after an MRI this week it has been decided he will sit out the tournament to rest it more, the Philadelphia Daily News reports.…

  12. Andres Nocioni remains questionable for World Championships

    Aug 4, 2010, 9:02 AM EDT

    There is good news for Philadelphia — Andres Nocioni should be healthy and ready to go by training camp in December. Argentina basketball fans, the news isn’t as good. Nocioni sprained his ankle last Friday while training with the Argentinean national team for the upcoming FIBA World Championships in Turkey. Sixers doctors just got a…

  13. Andres Nocioni questionable for worlds, another blow for Argentina

    Aug 2, 2010, 11:10 PM EDT

    It’s another blow for Argentina, who comes in to Turkey as the defending World Champions. Andres Nocioni joins Manu Ginobili on the sidelines for the world powerhouse. Nocioni injured his ankle in training with the team but may be able to go for the World Championships, according to FanHouse. The Championships start Aug. 25. Even…

  14. Report: Sixers trade Dalembert to Kings for Nocioni and Hawes

    Jun 17, 2010, 2:14 PM EDT

    In what likely would be the first domino in a series of moves, the Philadelphia 76ers have reportedly made a trade to start shaping the roster more to the liking of new coach Doug Collins. Samuel Dalembert will be traded to the Sacramento Kings in exchange for Spencer Hawes and Andres Nocioni, according to ESPN.com’s…

  15. Andres Nocioni to Sacramento: "I said openly I would not stay."

    Jun 10, 2010, 10:37 AM EDT

    Don’t be surprised if the Sacramento Kings are involved in a draft day trade, and look for Andres Nocioni to be in the package. The Argentinean forward did an interview with Ole, an Argentinean sports publication. (We’re surprised an Argentinean sports publication has time for basketball on the eve of the World Cup, but whatever.…

  16. Turkoglu actually wants to go to Sacramento

    Jun 8, 2010, 11:14 AM EDT

    With all due respect to the great Tom Ziller, not many people choose Sacramento. It’s a place people end up. It’s a seat of power (California’s capital), but as a metropolitan center, well… let’s just say it’s lacking. You don’t hear major free agents to be raving about the nightlife in Sac Town. Not like…
